How far would you travel for a poached pear in the early hours?
Without question to London Bridge, before hopping back on the Jubilee Line to clock-in on time at the Wharf.
This industrial-style eatery has proved its prowess in Levantine mezze and now it’s a must-visit before midday, too.
It’s not only summer fruit that makes your stomach grateful for the trip.
But the saffron poached pair (£6), positioned in the centre of a hearty bowl of creamy, gooey Ivy Farm Yogurt and doused with handfuls of nuts and seeds is absolutely divine.
It’s a gorgeous way to start the day - protein-packed if you’ve come straight from the gym or light yet filling if you’re feeling hungry.
Buttered sourdough - with a topping of figs, sesame and tahini (£6) - is moreish, naughty but very nice – perfect for those with a sweet-tooth.
Wash it all down with Turkish coffee (£3) to set you up for a busy day in E14.
