Wondertree, Heathrow, London

Wondertree, Heathrow, London

Whenever I have a flight, I make it my mission to arrive super early. I’ve had one instance in which I’ve been burned and since then I’ve vowed never to miss a flight. Wondertree Cafe in Heathrow Airport helped me utilise my time satisfactorily en route to Toronto. The restaurant is also replicated at Gatwick, and is brought to you by the Giraffe cafe chain that’s all around the parts. Spending about ¬£15 I had an iced tea and the Moroccan breakfast. It doesn’t come with toast (much needed) so that was an extra side. The plate had eggs, avocado, cherry tomato, hummus, potato wedges and oil. I mean it all tasted fine, but it was not a meal in itself. It all tasted as it should, minus the potatoes which weren’t warmed. Knowing the background of these guys the food offering should be fair, just make sure to pick the right choices for your appetite.
