Brunch

LITTLE BAT

54 Islington Park St, London N1

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.

GRIND

42 Maiden Lane, London

Grind will have you hitting up the coffee-come-cocktail bar for more than just drinks thanks to their modern British dinner menu, with small plates like salt cod brandade with garlic crostini, smashed sweet potato, spiced nuts and yoghurt, and hot apple crumble sundae. As usual, Grind has all your coffee and cocktail needs taken care of, the signature Grind Espresso Martini is a real winner…it’d be rude not to have at least one.

WRIGHT BROS

26 Circus West Village, Battersea Power Station, London SW11 8NN

Not only does Wright Brothers cook up a delicious fish dinner but its recently started serving a pretty damn tasty brunch too. Based at the Battersea branch, the weekend menu is full of fish-inspired brunch dishes including the lobster croque monsieur and Devon crab omelette as well as trusty favourites like avocado on toast and eggs Benedict. Located on the edge of the Thames it’s the perfect spot to brunch before a stroll in Battersea Park.

DUCK & WAFFLE LOCAL

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

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.

BLUES KITCHEN

134-136 Curtain Rd, London EC2A 3AR

The Blues Kitchen offers a wholesome spread of brunch dishes with a southern American tinge. If you’re feeling indulgent, we went for the full works – sausage, bacon, egg’s, tomato, mushroom, barbecue pit beans and toast, a fully satisfying dish that made us smile. A slightly healthier option was the Southwest Avotoast which saw San Fran sourdough as the foundation to house an incredible Hulk-esque portion of smashed avocado, poached eggs and Texmex Dukkah. It’s hearty, homely food washed down with healthy juices (at least for us this time). It’s a great way to start a Sunday, with blues and soul classics providing the soundtrack.

JOE ALLEN

2 Burleigh St, London WC2E 7PX

Joe Allen, the famous theatre land restaurant, may have recently moved to a new location but they took all the famous memorabilia from the past four decades to recreate the original as best they could. We love this place because it’s a slice of New York in the heart of Covent Garden. The brunch menu boasts waffles, steak and eggs but the breakfast bun with scrambled eggs, smoked slab bacon, smoked sausage, melted cheese and toasted brioche bun hit the spot for us. The avocado and poached eggs on toasted sourdough with lime and chilli was a healthier option and safer on the waistline. BUT there’s so much more to try… like the chicken parmigiana and we are dying to tuck into that Joe Allen hot dog.

DALLOWAY TERRACE

16-22 Great Russell St, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 3NN

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.

SOUTH PLACE CHOP HOUSE

3 South Pl, London EC2M 2AF

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.

SEA CONTAINERS

20 Upper Ground, London SE1 9PD

If you’re looking for somewhere a little bit smarter for brunch (and somewhere with one hell of a view) then Sea Containers at the Mondrian is the one, especially if you bag a window table… you can’t get much closer to the river without getting wet. The menu has a good spread of breakfast dishes, like the excellent Egg Sammy with bacon, avo and cheese, an English Breakfast Flatbread and Braised Chorizo and Peppers topped with a fried egg. We can defo recommend anything with eggs on as they really do nail those runny yolks, although their lunch plates do sound good too – we’re talking fried chicken burgers (appropriate at any hour of the day and night in our books), lamb pies and oysters (for when you’re feeling extra fancy). As well as bubbles and Bloody Marys you can also get boozy with alcoholic milkshakes.

WHITE MULBERRIES

Ivory House St Katharine Docks E1W 1AT

There’s no better place to get your shots off than White Mulberries. The coffee shop serves up a damn good cuppa joe and their brunch is pretty spot on too. With all their goodies made in-house or delivered from local bakeries, it’s all super fresh and totally Instagrammable.

HASH E8

170 Dalston Ln, E8 1NG

Hash E8 is one of our fave brunch spots in town, hidden away on Dalston Lane. 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.
