Boutique chocolatier Monsieur Truffe’s chocolate-making machinery is a reminder that chocolate is compulsory. Drink it in the house brew, or get more intense with the 85 per cent blend. Alternatively, dip brioche, strawberries and brownie into molten chocolate in the cultish shared fondue dessert. Need to line your stomach first? Menu favourite croque monsieur survived the ownership change and is a crunchy, gruyere-stuffed masterstroke. While traditional eggs-with-the-works brekkies can be ho-hum despite the house-grown trimmings, peppy lunches might include smoked trout and quinoa salad with wild rice, or a beef brisket bagel.
