 I'd spotted The Full Arlo's Breakfast a few months ago on Instagram and knew straight away that I just had to try it next time I was in London. I usually go in search of the full English breakfast but the steak and chorizo based Full Arlo's looked so appealing and had really grabbed my attention.

I visited the Balham branch just a short walk away from Balham tube station. I didn't take any interior shots but the restaurant is bright, spacious and a great environment to dine in. The staff are really friendly and efficient with a good knowledge of everything on the menu. The breakfast/brunch menu is served daily until 3pm and offers something for everyone including good vegetarian and vegan options.

The coffee here is excellent.

The Full Arlo's consists of Bavette steak, Brindisa chorizo, roast portobello mushroom, cherry tomatoes, fried eggs and sourdough toast. Everything on this breakfast has heaps of flavour and the items all compliment each other beautifully. This had to be the most delicious breakfast I can ever recall eating, such a pleasure to eat!

The most important aspect of this breakfast for me was the Bavette steak. I ordered mine to be cooked rare and it arrived cooked to perfection with a nice loose texture and incredible flavour. 

The desserts here are exceptional too, I recommend trying the warm chocolate brownie served with ice cream and chocolate sauce. I loved Arlo's Restaurant, a great place to dine with lovely staff, exceptional service and amazing food. Definitely a place well worth checking out next time you're in London!


  1. This is the first review I have read of yours that screams "AD". if so, it should definitely be highlighted further...and also, is it really necessary?

    1. I went along here for breakfast like any other person would. I loved it and would recommend it to others. Where does it scream AD exactly?
