Baker and Spice is completely overrated, overpriced and pretentious. We went there for Sunday brunch and it was fraught with frustration from the moment we sat down. I wanted scrambled eggs and bacon, so chose the scrambled eggs with cream fraiche - but they refused to supply a side order of bacon with it.
Moreover, when the dish arrived there was no toast or anything - merely a plate of eggs and that's it, for 11 quid! My husband ordered the full english breakfast, but asked for the eggs scrambled instead of fried - again this was not possible. I would have thought that was a basic and common request. And when the dish came, the eggs were in fact poached, not fried! He hates poached eggs.
My mother ordered the smoked salmon on savoury pancakes - and was told that that dish may take a long time - God knows why! I found the staff to be extremely unhelpful, rude and pretentious, and obviously the chefs are either totally unreasonable or incapable of cooking the simplest things - probably both. We will not be returning to Baker and Spice.
