This past Saturday I was invited by Rosie to brunch at Dirty Bones. I can never, ever say no to a brunch, even more so when it’s with the amazing-in-every-way Rosie.
Let me just take a second to tell you about Rosie. Here’s one heck of an inspirational woman. She used to be an actress and a singer, and then last year switched to train to be a midwife. She studies and works all the hours of the day, and yet still has the time and energy to not only have an amazing blog and insta feed, but she’s the loveliest friend and is a never-ending source of positivity and rainbows. I’ve met so many amazing people through having a blog and it’s by far the best thing about doing this.
So, back to the brunch! Dirty Bones is situated in the cool and funky Shoreditch, a stone’s throw from the station. Expect gorgeous lighting, inspirational graffiti and warm welcomes from men in beards. Specifically Paul, who not only was warm and welcoming but was pretty hot.
Never one to say avoca-no, I went for the avocado crumpets, with umami butter, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. 25p from each crumpet dish goes to making sure children in London have a decent breakfast with Magic Breakfast.
While their brunch cocktails looked amazing, being designated driver, I went for the Shadow Milkshake, with Oreos and lots of little chocolate chips. It was SO good. Calories don’t exist at brunch.
Rosie went for the Dirty Mary (which, she said, was the best thing ever) and the short rib crumpets.
Can we put an 18 age rating on these eggs, please? Children shouldn’t be seeing this.
For brunch dessert (yes. You heard me) Rosie went for the banana Toblerone-tella waffles, and declared that all bananas need to be caramalised. Rosie for Prime Minister?
I’d been eyeing up the matcha custard French toast, but wanted with without the bacon (still sticking to the non-meat). It wasn’t overly sweet, which was lovely.
I loved the unique crumpets, and the menu wasn’t so overly full of options to be too confused. Simple, good food with lovely friendly people in a gorgeously decorated place. What’s not to love?

I was treated at Dirty Bones as Rosie’s plus one, however, as always, views are honest.
