Notting Hill feels like it should have a good old fashioned diner, and it does. The Electric isn’t cheap, but it’s a great shout no matter what time you’re in the area. There’s an all-day breakfast menu from 8am which is generally very satisfying, and a solid selection of uncomplicated but delicious food for a really hearty dinner. The flat iron chicken and a double cheese burger should at the very least be on your table, but the mac and cheese is the only side worth a fiver. Even if you aren’t making use of the cinema here, most of the food is worth making a journey for – especially without the 50% off if you’ve got a cinema ticket for next door. The vibe is usually quite lively, and the service is consistently superb. The Electric serves three simultaneously noble purposes: hangover cure, pre-cinema-ice-breaker, and a solid all day American diner.
