I’m back! It’s been a long time, and I’ve neglected my little bit of the internet for one of the hardest and most heartbreaking months I’ve ever had. But I’m so glad to be getting back into the swing of things – and what better way to do that than a post about BRUNCH!
The Jones Family Project has been one of those places that since I first heard it mentioned, it seems to have been mentioned about a million times since, either recommended to me by friends of friends or popping up on other blogs. Located right across from the Hoxton Hotel, it’s in a great location for a quick bite before scouring all that Shoreditch has to offer (I got a fabulous hat and leather skirt from the The Vintage Store close by, as well as a great deal on a light pink skater skirt from the American Apparel sale rack down the road).
Spring had just sprung when we popped in – we’d reserved a table for quarter to eleven – but we didn’t really need to, though it did begin to fill up as we left. The venue itself is really light, and on-trend, too.
After our morning mimosas, my brunch date ordered the eggs benedict, which looked amazing (and got her seal of approval).
I opted for the Jones baked eggs – two free-ranged eggs served in a terracotta pan, but without the toasted bread (which arrived anyway). I went for the baked eggs with chorizo, peppers, red onions, white wine, potatoes, tomatoes and rosemary. The dish was very Iberian – it had a distinct Spanish/Portuguese flavour to it, and was really delicious – the combination of the baked eggs with the chorizo was divine.
The cocktail menu, as well as the bar snack and lunch selection also looks really appetising – and with such a great location Jones Family Project looks like it would be great place to go slightly later in the day too.
My brunch, including mimosa, tea, and the eggs came to around £20, which is pretty standard given that you are paying for the location.
Jones Family Project is located 78 Great Eastern Street, London, EC2A 3JL.(4 / 5)
