Jackson + Rye is great American style diner in the heart of Soho. Now, having been someone who actually lived in America, this is not what an American diner is like in any way shape or form. But I do appreciate their effort and to be honest, Jackson + Rye is nicer than most diners in America. I’ve been there a few times before for a weekday lunch (actually with Harry Style’s sister. She looks exactly like him… or really, he looks exactly like her.)
Anyway, this time I went for a Saturday brunch and was pleasantly surprised with how friendly and efficient the staff was. We had a film to be at and let them know at the beginning and they kept that in mind the entire time and the food came out promptly. Unfortunately, there was major construction going on next door, so it was almost impossible to hold a conversation, but that wasn’t the fault of Jackson + Rye.
I had the Avocados Eggs benedict and had no idea what to expect. What came was really good and perfect for anyone on a low carb, high fat diet. Poached eggs sat on top of the avocado along with (the requested) crispy bacon. It also came with potatoes and bread, but it was so filling I hardly touched them. Side note, the coffee was great as well.
They get fairly busy, so I recommend a reservation or try for one of the few walk-in seats available, which was what we did at around 10am.
