HIDE

85 Piccadilly London, W1J 7NB
Green Park

Arguably one of the best restaurants in London, Ollie Dabbous’ Hide was awarded a Michelin star just 6 months after opening. We’ve been for dins and loved it but it’s true that it can get pricey in the evenings, so another way in is to head over for weekend brunch where the menu is just £48. Brunch begins with a bunch of snacks, including Porthilly oysters with Amalfi lemon; tempura aubergine served with Thai basil and green peppercorns; and flatbread cooked over charcoal with beetroot hummus and Graceburn creamy cheese.

There are four starters to choose from and we dug into the HIDE Croque Monsieur, a dense cheesy masterpiece, as well as cured organic salmon with chervil mayonnaise and pickled yellow courgette. From the mains, the Cornish crab linguine stole the show – served from pan to plate table side, we enjoyed the subtle spiciness and richness of this dish. The barbecued 50 day-aged beef short rib served with crispy potato cake and onion rings, virgin rapeseed béarnaise, with super sweet smoked tomato is out of this world, too. For £48 in one of the best restaurants in town, you just can’t go wrong.

PROVISIONERS

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.

BOB'S LOBSTER

Unit 71 St Thomas St, Bermondsey, London SE1 3QX
London Bridge London Bridge

In 2018 BOB’s Lobster made the jump from street food trader to permanent site, opening in the revamped part of London Bridge station, though they haven’t forgotten their roots, parking the famous VW campervan inside the restaurant. And now they’re making sure we all get our seafood fix in the morning thanks to a brand new brunch menu. There are plenty of egg dishes on offer if you wanna stick to the breakfast vibes but the lobster mac ‘n’ cheese with lobster bisque bechamel, lobster tail meat and a sprinkling of fried shallots for texture, is a winner. In our books mac ‘n’ cheese is acceptable any time of the day or night. You can’t come to BOB’s Lobster and not have one of the signature rolls – the lobster and crayfish one is packed with meat and comes in the most buttery brioche. And if you can break away from the shellfish, the tuna tacos with wasabi guac and extra crunchy wonton shells are definitely also worth an order, although be prepared to fight over who gets the last one.

ST LEONARDS

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.

RUDIE'S

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.

HOPPERS

77 Wigmore Street, London, UK
Bond Street

Spice up your brunch by swapping the classic brekkie dishes for Sri Lankan small plates at Hoppers St Christopher’s Place. You’ve got a few decisions to make as you have various meaty and veggie short eats and karis to pick from as well as a choice of hoppers, dosa and chutneys. The table doesn’t have to all order the same so you can mix and match, perfect if you’re feeling indecisive/greedy. From the short eats, we rate the green peppercorn squid with crispy chickpeas; the fiery devilled chicken wings; and the bacon and mushroom kothu, which has a bubble & squeak feel about it. You’ve then got to choose whether you want a namesake hopper (go for the egg one if you want to up the brunch vibe) or a dosa – the chilli cheese one is particularly great and it’s massive – then your chutneys or sambol and finally the kari you want to mop it up with. The aubergine one gets our vote every time. You can add in free-flowing Lion beer to make it bottomless but it’s worth checking out the other drinks; the watermelon and guava slushie is SO GOOD.

CHRISTOPHER'S

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.

FOUR SEASONS AT PARK LANE

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?

EGGBREAK

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.

THE IVY ST JOHN'S WOOD

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.

CLUB MEXICANA

The Spread Eagle, Homerton High Street, London, UK

HEADS & TAILS

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.

SMOKING GOAT

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.

HASH E8

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.

SUNDAY BARNSBURY

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 to.

PACHAMAMA EAST

73 Great Eastern St, London EC2A 3HR, UK
Old Street Old Street

For the eastern outpost of Pachamama (sister to the original one in Marylebone as well as the offshoot Chicama in Chelsea), the menu is still largely Peruvian in style but sets itself apart by featuring Asian flavours across too. You have plenty of choice when it comes to brunch with both sweet and savoury waffles and specials that range from a Sichuan chicken burger to smoked eel crepes to sofrito baked eggs with kale. And there are a handful of snacks and small plates from the main menu too, so you can really mix and match.

COAL ROOMS

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.

LITTLE BAT

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.

LES NENETTES

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.

GALVIN AT WINDOWS

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.

POMONA'S

7 Hereford Rd, London W2 5AH, UK
Bayswater

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.

DALLOWAY TERRACE

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

With a new season comes a new terrace display at Dalloway Terrace and the floral installation is the perfect backdrop for brunch. We tucked into their 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

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.

DISHOOM

5 Stable Street, London N1C 4AB, UK
King's Cross St Pancras King's Cross

Dishoom sure knows how to do it. All their sites have regular huge queues out the door and it’s not hard to see why, especially in the mornings. The naans are legendary – always bacon and egg or the wrestler’s naan (that’s bacon sausage and egg) if you’re particularly hungry/hungover – but the Dishoom spin on the fry up is pretty bangin’ too with spiced scrambled eggs, masala baked beans and buttered buns alongside your bacon, sausages, mushrooms and tomato. And you can get a vegan version if that’s how you roll.

CAFE MIAMI

24 Lower Clapton Road, London E5 0PD, United Kingdom
Hackney Downs Homerton

Cafe Miami brings a little slice of sunshine to Clapton. The art-deco cafe put a spin on the classics and you can expect posh bacon sarnies with avo and chilli jam, homemade pop tarts and peanut butter & banana on toast, alongside a waffle burger with chorizo, avo, fried egg and hot sauce and nutella filled pancakes.
