The newly refurbished ‘Coppa Club’ boasts of cabana-like seating areas which showcase some of London’s best views. Situated alongside the River Thames with London Bridge and The Shard in the background, Coppa Club is the perfect picturesque hotspot. Its prime location (as I have already mentioned), good food, and adornments such as delicate flower tendrils spiraling from the seating ceiling, not only make it the ideal backdrop for Instagram worthy photographs, but an ideal place to have a meal with friends.
This is exactly what led me to befriend Coppa Club, for a group of friends and I had reserved a table for breakfast to celebrate my friend’s 21st Birthday. We were offered a seating space outside on the terrace, the private cabana pods all needing to be pre-booked (a heads up for anyone else wanting to go), and I can honestly say that we were not disappointed. For the outside seating area boasts of the aforementioned stunning views, and we were lucky enough to go when London had one of her rare- and freak- warm weather days! But I mustn’t forget to give a shout out to the inside of Coppa Club which is just as beautiful as the outside. The large window frames open out onto breathtaking views of the Thames from all angles, and the exposed brickwork interior design of the walls, painted in accents of warm blues, greens and mustard also helps to create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere for diners.
The breakfast menu had a good selection of foods on offer, from scrambled egg on toast, smashed avocado and poached eggs, to pancakes and summer berry waffles served with crème fraiche, fresh berries, orange blossom honey and bee pollen. The menu itself, which branches out from breakfast, to brunch, to an all-day menu and dessert, is simple and uncomplicated, thus catering for everyone. It offers up large healthy portions, which are not short on taste and which will leave you smiling from the inside. This extends to the drinks’ menu, which offers fresh juice and smoothies that are the perfect kick start to your morning, and cocktails and other alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) beverages to get you in a party mood for the evening.
As it was my friends 21st Birthday the restaurant were kind enough to offer us a rich chocolate cake served with a citrus flavoured crème fraiche and a candle placed in the centre. Although it was a bit naughty for the morning, it was the perfect end to our breakfast and the perfect beginning to the rest of our day!
So, to sum up, Coppa Club has it all: a prime location hidden away from the busy streets of London; a view which paradoxically shows some of London’s most famous landmarks, and great food that will leave you feeling satisfied no matter what time of the day you go, whether it be for breakfast, or for dinner! So if you are looking for a new restaurant to try out, or a new area of London to visit, I would urge you to put Coppa Club at the top of your list…
