Offering a combination of expertly-prepared food, great coffee, fine wine and ales, it’s a great place to treat your tongue.
Meanwhile, the art on the walls from the Guzelian news agency upstairs means there’s plenty for your eyes to enjoy too, thanks to arty owner Asadour Guzelian.
It’s a small yet light and airy space which is immediately relaxing, with a gallery feel. And if you take a shine to any of the prints on the walls, you can buy one to take out with your coffee.
Because Guzelian gives you plenty of dining options, from breakfast to tapas and world wines, it can take you right through into the evening.
Our breakfast visit
We visited at around 11am on a Saturday for a lovely frothy latte and a full English breakfast. Chef James Heselgrave greeted us like old friends, and made sure we were well looked after without even knowing we were planning a write-up.
Beautifully displayed on a rectangular plate, this was a very upmarket version of the classic greasy spoon breakfast.
Crispy buttered toast, mushrooms, a huge piece of black pudding, Lishman’s sausage (spicy and divine) and finally the Holy Grail of all full English breakfasts – thick juicy bacon. It was all cooked in the open kitchen as we watched, with no microwaving at all.
We also diligently checked out the pancakes with maple syrup, and they were cooked to perfection too.
Guzelian is an absolute little gem for Little Germany. Oi will definitely be back to try out the evening meal next time.
