Polo Bar - 24 Hour

Breakfast and BrunchBest BurgersBakeries and Patisseries

Polo Bar brands itself as the Great British Café but it certainly looks a little fancier or should I say quirkier than your traditional greasy spoon.  For instance we had a bear bursting out the wall above our table but décor wise it is very Shoreditch with a mix of modern and traditional wall art that reminds you of times past after-all there has been a café on this spot since 1953.

Location wise you couldn't ask for more as over the road is Liverpool Street station and from the second floor window you have a great view over the hustle and bustle of the station and its clock.

Polo Bar is a 24 hour restaurant so the menu is pretty vast covering breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, snacks, fresh juices, coffee, teas, beers and cocktails! We tried a full breakfast, a chicken burger with sweet potato fries and a British classic fish and chips. I have to say it all tasted great,  they make their own burgers, they make their own batter for the fish, this is not sloppy cooking  taking short cuts on quality and it shows. For the finale we had an apple pie dessert with vanilla ice cream which is perhaps where they dropped the ball a little (I like my apple pie piping hot to go with the cold ice cream but it was not to be) but otherwise quality is high and those must be some busy chefs.

Being open 24 hours and having a 24 hour liquor license I am sure means you attract an eclectic mix of people through your doors, from business people in the day taking a meeting over breakfast to the younger crowd at night. The waitress explained that only a few hours before we arrived they had some German revellers enjoying a few final beers over breakfast after celebrating their world cup win all night. All in all I like the Polo Bar a lot it is suitable for everyone and everything and actually pulls it off!
