Provisioners, Queen Elizabeth Street, London, UK
London Bridge

The rather dapper interiors of Provisioners, inside the Dixon hotel, isn’t the only draw here. Having recently launched their brunch menu, there are quite a few things to make this the first stop on your weekend food hunt. Temptation leaps out from the page: the black pudding and pork belly roti is a gem, the pork belly smothered in sweet coffee bbq sauce, red onion jam and a fried egg that is wrapped inside an Indian roti bread. The flatbread is a good shout too and comes loaded with avocado (could have been a little more ripe), creme fraiche, tomato jam and bacon. What’s not to like.

70 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4QX, UK
Old Street Old Street

St Leonards is one of our fave restaurants in Shoreditch and now that they’ve gone and created a Saturday brunch menu, we love it even more. The a la carte menu is available alongside the brunch offering, meaning you can make a proper meal of it. You’ll defo want to kick off with some oysters from the ice bar – the varieties change regularly but the flamed ones, New Orleans-style, are mega. The smoked pork cheek hash with poached egg and hollandaise is rich and indulgent, and the grilled mushroom tartine with herbed labneh and poached eggs is a great veggie option – with a doorstop-sized piece of sourdough, it’ll certainly leave you satisfied. To go with the brunch dishes, there’s a new Hair of the Dog cocktail list. The beef stock Bloody Mary, with stock, spices and forest salt, will knock out any lingering hangovers in flash.


50 Stoke Newington Road, London N16 7XB
Dalston Kingsland

Bringing the tropical vibes of Jamaica to Dalston, Rudie’s offer a banging brunch that will have you talking about it for days. There is just so much love that goes into their food, like the 24 hour minimum marinade, their secret rubs, and cooking out of traditional jerk drums using coal, not gas. This is why you will find authentic, damn right beautiful, charcoal grilled, smoked jerk cooking. The jerk chicken is an absolute must, so soft, so juicy and so smokey. Smothering it in as hot a sauce as you can handle, it’s pretty much life goal territory. AND just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, get that jerk chicken burger, it is epic.

They also do a Bottomless Rum Punch Brunch every Saturday and Sunday. You get one dish and 90 mins of unlimited rum for £18. Bargain. Big big loves.


18 Wellington Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 7DD
Covent Garden Temple

Right in the heart of theatreland and housed in an amazing Grade-II listed building is the American restaurant and martini bar Christopher’s. The beautiful sweeping staircase takes you up to the second floor overlooking Waterloo Bridge with high ceilings and huge windows flooding the room with light. Brunch is strong. There’s a superfood section for hardcore health goers with things like buckwheat pancakes and warm kale and butternut squash salad. Then there’s what we liked to call the ‘fun section’; we went for the lobster benedict, that’s a half grilled lobster served with spinach, topped with a poached egg and smothered in plenty of rich and creamy bearnaise sauce. If you are feeling particularly naughty, the warm brioche French toast with roast peach, vanilla mascarpone and sweet, sticky maple syrup is the one. It’s powerful.

Hamilton Pl, Park Ln, Mayfair, London W1J 7DR
Hyde Park Corner

For the ultimate Sunday brunch experience right in the heart of Mayfair, head to the Four Seasons at Park Lane as Executive Chef Romuald Feger brings Italian flair inspired by the cooking of his mother and grandmother. We can highly recommend the eggs benedict, which comes with a ham and cheese toastie chaser. The meatballs with roasted tomato sauce della Nonna Santoro, are rich and show off some of those Italian roots. Chef Romuald’s garlic and lemon roasted chicken is another satisfying dish that’s full of flavour. For dessert, you have a whole table to choose from that will leave you open-mouthed and bring out your greedy side; we say indulge in tiramisu and then hit up the other chocolate-coated treats. All that, and you’ve got the option of enjoying free-flowing Ruinart champagne, fancy eh?


30 Uxbridge Street, Kensington, W8 7TA
Notting Hill Gate

Eggbreak is a laid back restaurant in Notting Hill and it’s all about the eggs (clue’s in the name people!). The menu features some pretty filthy looking buns including THAT McMuffin with a sausage patty, American cheese, fried egg and hot sauce. Other faves include the crab cakes with poached eggs, sriracha hollindase and spinach, and the cornflake french toast with caramelised banana, blueberries and maple syrup.

Guilford Street and Russell Square, London, WC1B 5BE
Russell Square

Not your most obvious for brunch we’ll admit but neighbourhood restaurant Neptune, run by Brett Redman and Margaret Crow (the pair behind the now-closed Richmond in Hackney) inside the Principal Hotel, is one of the coolest spots in town. The Grade II-listed dining room is spectacular, drenched in a peach palette with a graphic wood floor, plush velvet and a rolling exhibition of curated art on the walls. As Neptune is (unsurprisingly) all about the seafood, it’s appropriate to start at the oyster bar with an oyster shooter sat on top of a Bloody Mary. Fresh and salty. Whilst there is a seafood platter on offer, the Butchers Breakfast with organic eggs, bacon, sausage, a mighty slab of black pudding, tomato, mushrooms and beans has everything you need in a breakfast. The veggie version, which is loaded with halloumi as well as eggs, avocado, spinach, tomato, mushroom and beans, is just as pleasing to tuck into and will have you set up for the rest of the day. If you’ve still got room after that, get the frangipani. You can thank us later.

52 Haymarket, St. James’s Market, London SW1Y 4RP
Piccadilly Circus

This Duck & Waffle Local may not have those breath taking views of London, but it doesn’t have the queues either. In fact, being at ground level in stead of 40 floors up is about the only downside we can think of, as it has the same amazing food, setting the bar high for brunches in London. On the menu you can expect all the classics including the famous duck & waffle, as well as other delicious duck dishes including the duck doughnut served with a zesty orange jam and the braised duck beni.  Located on Haymarket street it’s the perfect place to brunch before hitting the shops.

120 St John's Wood High St, St John's Wood, London NW8 7SG
St John's Wood

St John’s Wood oozes that upmarket village feel – just look around at the villa style housing and notice the parked cars, bling bling – and brunch at The Ivy Brasserie fits right in. The fun, eclectic decor sets the tone, striking the right balance between relaxed and plenty of attention to detail. The chicken milanese with San Marzanino tomatoes, capers, rocket, parmesan and pesto is a pretty fresh and satisfying dish. The salmon and smoked haddock fish cake, sat on crushed pea and herb sauce with a soft poached hen’s egg is simple and deeply enjoyable. The salt-crusted sourdough bread with salted butter also deserves its own shout out because it’s so damn good. Weekend brunch now comes with a special visit from the Bloody Mary Trolley. There are a range of Bloody Marys to choose from and you can watch them being made right at your table.


The Spread Eagle, Homerton High Street, London, UK

Vegan Mexican? It’s happening at Club Mexicana, which you can find taking over the kitchen at The Spread Eagle in Homerton as well as at Dinerama. Spice up your life with some hot Baja to-fish tacos and BBQ pulled jackfruit burritos.

175 West End Ln, West Hampstead, London NW6 2LH
West Hampstead

Heads & Tails in West Hampstead is best known as a dreamy cocktail bar with slick interiors. Thei bright and airy space on the ground floor is Heads and the naughtier counterpart, Tails, is the dive bar found downstairs. Theere’s also have a pretty lovely secluded, leafy garden out the back so if the weather is kind we’d suggest brunching there, it’s a little trickier inside given the setup, but more than fine outdoors on the bigger tables. The brunch menu is small plates-focused but all the classics are there. Spicy smashed avocado on charcoal sourdough rocks in at a straight £5 and their shakshuka comes deconstructed with all the elements set out separately. The protein plate – merguez, chorizo, bacon and house bean mix – definitely steals the show though, and that lamb sausage be spicy. Woof.


64 Shoreditch High St, London E1 6JJ, UK
Shoreditch High Street

From the new (and now only) Smoking Goat Shoreditch site you can practically see people tucking in to bacon and egg naan rolls in Dishoom opposite but Smoking Goat have some tricks of their own, namely the delicious Cured Tamworth Jowl & Fried Eggs Roti, which gives their Indian neighbours a run for their money. There’s lots more to love too, including fried chicken and curry sauce and smoked haddock with noodles.


BOTTLES, Brushfield Street, London, UK
Liverpool Street

Bottles is a great new wine bar in Spitalfields market (we loved our dinner there) and on weekends they also do brunch. The menu is short and sweet, with just three options: Fried egg sandwich, guanciale, mozzarella, roasted garlic and chilli mayo; Potato frittata, pepper fennel & dill salad; Oak smoked salmon and avocado on toast, seaweed and orange hollandaise. If you’re hungover it’s got to be the fried egg sandwich, just the right side of greasy, or if you’re feeling healthy then you can’t beat that salmon and avo.


170 Dalston Ln, E8 1NG
Hackney Downs Hackney Downs

Hash E8 is one of our fave brunch spots in town, hidden away on Dalston Lane do brunch all day long. The Pig Muffin, that’s sausage patty, bacon, pork belly, egg cake, bacon jam, cheese slice & hash browns in a muffin with chorizo and bacon jam is just YUM. But we also dig the French Toast stuffed with banana, chocolate and peanut butter served with maple syrup and there’s some banging sides too – PLUS it’s all pretty affordable.


169 Hemingford Road, London, N1 1DA
Caledonian Road & Barnsbury

Sunday Barnsbury does one of the best French toasts in town. It comes with creme fraiche and salted caramel and we recommend a side of bacon too, and the cornbread is also pretty on point with avo, halloumi and a poached egg. Portions are decent and this is proper neighbourhood cafe that you’ll wish you lived next too.

11a Station Way, Peckham Rye Station, London, SE15 4RX
Peckham Rye Peckham Rye

Coal Rooms in Peckham is the place to go when you need an all out meat-feast breakfast. Bring a (preferably hungover) pal and get stuck in to the Full English for Two, a huge plate piled high with thick cut streaky and back bacon, black pudding, fried duck eggs, goat sausages, mushrooms cooked in smoked bone marrow butter and big wedges of sourdough toast. Yep, you read all that correctly and once you’re through with that (or it’s through with you), you’ll definitely need a lie down. There are some lighter options too of course, including a lovely ‘pastrami’ salmon and bubble & squeak.


54 Islington Park St, London N1, UK
Highbury & Islington Highbury & Islington Highbury & Islington

Little Bat, sister to Callooh Callay, is best known as a cocktail bar but now they’ve got into the brunch game. They’ve got a varied menu, with a mix of small plates – the roast cauliflower and cheddar croquettes with chilli relish are a must – and main dishes. You can go lighter with the hazelnut crusted baked ricotta with asparagus and pickled radish salad or more indulgent with the chickpea, potato, parmesan and truffle rosti topped with bacon, a poached egg and hollandaise. They haven’t forgotten about the booze either – not only do they have brekkie-inspired cocktails and a bottomless option, they’ve got a DIY Bloody Mary Trolley so you can shake one up just the way you like it. With their open front windows, palm print furniture and bangin’ soundtrack, this is one brunch you’ll wanna linger over.


3 South Pl, London EC2M 2AF, UK
Moorgate Liverpool Street

South Place Chop House

The Chop House restaurant at the South Place Hotel in the City offers a killer Saturday brunch menu between midday and 5pm. There’s a good mix of healthy and hearty (catering to all levels of hangover) and even a bottomless booze option for £15. On the lighter side of things there’s butcher muesli and superfood salad before we move up to the likes of perfectly crispy sweet potato rosti on smashed avocado and a wicked baked eggs with English feta and chorizo made my London’s Cobble Lane. At the top end we’re talking a posh fish finger sandwich and Chop Home burger for those really feeling the heat. This is great grub in a nice, peaceful setting – exactly what a weekend brunch should be.


19 Lower Clapton Rd, London E5 0NS
Hackney Downs Hackney Downs

Local French restaurant Les Nenettes brings a very rustic dejeneur to the streets of Lower Clapton. It’s all-female team serves French classics including croque monsieurs and omelettes as well as trusty favourites including avo on toast. There’s also plenty of oeuf dishes on offer, including the soft boiled eggs which are served with a choice of anchovy butter soldiers, melted cheese soldiers or croque monsieur soldiers, which may just be the perfect hangover cure after a heavy night out in East London.


22 Park Ln, Mayfair, London W1K 1BE, UK
Hyde Park Corner

Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows on the 28th floor of the Hilton Park Lane – yes the views are pretty epic – has just got into the brunch game with a brand new Saturday menu from chef Joo Won. For the restaurant’s first ever brunch offering, Joo has gone all out with a real mix of dishes, from French pastries and sourdough toasts to classic eggs and lunch plates with an Asian twist. Joo’s Super Breakfast, with soft polenta, Burford Brown eggs, maple cured rib eye bacon, stir-fried chili oyster mushrooms and Anne Rose boudin noir is the way to go if you fancy an elegant take on a traditional brekkie. If you’re in more of a lunch mood, the teriyaki fillet of salmon is packed full of flavour but still light enough for you to have room for one of the puds, and with classics like chocolate fondant and Paris-Brest on the menu, you definitely want to save room.

7 Hereford Rd, London W2 5AH, UK

Anything California-inspired has us hooked and Pomona’s brings a dose of The Golden State to Notting Hill. Saying Pomona’s is colourful is an understatement, from the jungle of potted plants by the entrance to their slick and vibrant multicoloured furniture, it’s the kind of place that just makes you feel good. Alfresco dining with an order of the hot smoked salmon, sourdough toast, scrambled eggs and a side helping of black pudding is even more of that feel good factor, and the Madagascan prawns, lemon, chili with parsley and butter are next level. Big, beautiful and boy are they de-lish. It wouldn’t be a weekend brunch without a cocktail and the pear & cardamom bellini is the one. Pomona’s has got it going on.

16-22 Great Russell St, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 3NN
Tottenham Court Road Holborn

With a new season comes a new terrace display as Dalloway Terrace is transformed into a bee inspired garden. The installation is a wall of wildflowers with oversized bees dotted throughout the kaleidoscope of colour. This backdrop is a winner for spring and goes perfectly with their honey themed afternoon tea. We tucked into their new brunch offering, going for shakshuka eggs, sourdough toast, a side of chunky black pudding along with sliced avocado for good measure. A slightly healthier option but just as good was their avocado on sourdough with plum tomato and Bloomsbury chillies, topped with a poached egg. De-lish.


34 Grosvenor Square, London, W1K 2HD
Bond Street

Brunch is big business at 34, the menu is pretty extensive and features everything from your usual egg dishes to pimped up lobster mac’n’cheese and roasts on a Sunday. We’d recommend the salt beef hash with double fried egg and the cornbread with avocado. Then there’s the dessert menu (HELLO Jaffa mouse, banoffee sundae and every ice-cream flavour under the sun) and champers served from glasses shaped like Kate Moss’s boobies.

The Ivy Soho Brasserie, 26-28 Broadwick Street, London W1F 8JB, UK
Oxford Circus Piccadilly Circus

When it comes to the Ivy you know you are getting sophistication and the Ivy Brasserie in Soho is no different. With Parisian-style terrace to the bar and restaurant set up inside, it’s all about the finer things in life – marble, gold, velvet and leather – yet it manages to retain a relaxed informal vibe. On the menu, you have just about everything you could wish for from juices and smoothies to eggs and pastries to lobster and steak. The crispy duck salad with five spice dressing, toasted cashews, watermelon, bean sprouts and ginger is a great way to kick things off. The “French dip” steak sandwich – roast beef, caramelised onions, horseradish mayo and that all-important Burgundy sauce dip – is an indulgent treat, as is the chicken milanese with its fried egg and parmesan and truffle cream sauce. Go for a double hit with parmesan and truffle fries on the side. Expect great service too because you’ll get it.
