German Gymnasium,Kings Boulevard, London, N1C 4BU
A last minute decision to have brunch whilst walking the streets of kings cross resulted in us serendipitously choosing the German gymnasium and what a pleasant experience it was.
This former gym (see the mural that was there before it became this restaurant https://annasworldinpictures.com/2014/11/15/mural-at-gateway-to-kings-cross) has recently been turned into a restaurant and bar, with the website saying
Originally designed as the first purpose-built gym in England, this Grade II-listed building is conveniently situated in the heart of vibrant King’s Cross. German Gymnasium serves Mittel-European inspired dishes all day long, across two floors and out on its vast heated terraces.
The menu was just what we wanted (but no Bloody Mary! Such a shame 😀)
Some issues with the order arriving late and my cappuccino being more like a flat white (middle class problems?), but I’ll forgive all that with the standard of food and beautiful building.
Next time, I would like to try a cocktail…as they sound fabulous!
