We’re very excited to launch Breakfast and Brunch at The Gate Seymour Place on the 4th February! Breakfast will be served Monday to Friday from 8am-11.30am and brunch on weekends from 9am-4pm. The Gate Seymour Place is the first of our three restaurants to serve breakfast and brunch! In line with our long-standing ethos, all dishes are healthy, produced using carefully sourced ingredients, and showcase the versatility of vegetarian food.
Our founder Michael Daniel explains: “We wanted to translate The Gate’s signature take on vegetarian food to a breakfast menu and the opening of Seymour Place gave us the perfect opportunity. With a range of vegan dishes and some new takes on established dishes, we’re excited about this menu and look forward to welcoming customers to The Gate Seymour Place for the most important meal of the day.”
The menu includes vegetarian and vegan takes on cooked breakfast favourites including a Full English featuring smoked butter bean sausages and grilled smoked tofu rashers, and Scrambled Tofu with chunky avocado & spring onion on toasted Sourdough seasoned with sumac, za’atar. Popular breakfast dishes such as Huevos Rancheros, Omelettes and Shakshuka will sit alongside lighter dishes such as Potted Chia, both vegan and gluten free. The team at The Gate tasted all the dishes on the breakfast menu – it’s a hard job but someone’s got to do it! – and one of our favourites was the Raw Chocolate Bowl made with organic Peruvian raw cacao. Not only is it rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, but it will also boost your immune system and give you increased energy. It’s as healthy as a bowl of hot chocolate can be!
After making sure all the dishes were tried and tested, we hosted our first breakfast event last Wednesday, for the launch of Azamara Club Cruises’ local experiences. The 30 attendees mingled over Grapefruit & Orange Juice and Carrot, Ginger & Apple juice, then sat down for a bespoke sharing-style menu of Scrambled Tofu, Potted Chia, Homemade Granola, Herb Frittata, Raw Pancakes and Fresh fruit Platters, before a short presentation. Our first early morning event under our belt, we got up again before sunrise the next day to host a fashionable vegan brunch to launch Olivia Burton’s new line of vegan-friendly watches. The semi-private area was decorated with beautiful flowers to match the very pretty watches on display. The intimate gathering attracted quite a crowd including Emma Crompton, Venetia Falconer, Sophie Milner and Aj Odudu, who admired the new products an Apple Mojito in hand. The girls tucked into Vegan Omelettes, Banana & Flax Raw Pancakes and Scrambled Tofu.
