GIMME FOOD, I’M HUNGRY: Grilled sourdough - Smoked bacon jam, kale and field mushroom, gorgonzola, two poached eggs, pistachio dukkah.
Drink: Bloody Mary
Why? We’re a sucker for all things sweet, throw in a little sophistication with that pecan and oat crumble and ooo mama we are sold 🤪 If you’re looking for something more filling, we recommend Leaf’s famous grilled sourdough dishes.

FOOD PLS, LOTS OF IT: Island eggs - roasted torn sweet potato, avo feta whip, steamed greens, soy pickled shiitake & a poached egg sprinkled roasted hazelnuts with wholemeal sourdough.
Drink: Rose latte
Why? We believe breakfast should have a decent amount of crunch to it, and what way to get that than some crunchy, wholesome, nutty granola? Followed by a healthy dish of eggs and goodness named ‘Island eggs’ so we can really feel like we’re on our holibobs 🙃🌴

Why? Would you abandon putting two of your all time favourite things together, in this case, croissants and baklava?! No, we thought not, an absolute must order for the table. Their green shakshuka is filling, comforting and wondrous all at the same time. Gobble that down while sipping on Eggbreak’s refreshing ice tea and you’re in for an absolute home run ⚾️

About: Next to Momo in Mayfair (and referred to as its “playful cousin”) Mo Diner takes the American diner concept on a spin through the Med - both with the look and the twist to all the food.
