The best brunch in London and where to find it

London is never short of things to do, especially when it comes to eating. Brunch in London is slowly becoming a weekend institution (in fact, it may be the best part of the weekend). It’s great for the foodies amongst us who are always on the prowl for something to satisfy those hunger pangs. So if you’re jonesing for some American style pancakes or you just want a plain and simple English breakfast – look no further than our list of the 10 places to find the best brunch in London. These places will surely have your mouth watering as you run to get your food fix.

1. The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club is a popular joint that offers a whole range of succulent options from fruit smoothies to maple syrup smothered bacon pancakes. It’s a cozy establishment where sharing tables is encouraged but be sure to arrive early to avoid the queues. Alternatively, if you want something super local and super tasty then foodie Lallie’s East London Brunch will have you truly satisfied.

2. Koya Bar

Fusion food at its finest. It’s so easy for fusion to go terribly wrong but in the rare cases that it goes terribly right you will find yourself walking to Koya Bar. It’s Japan meets England. No hostility, just great cooking. Porridge and mushrooms may sound like the worst idea ever, until you try it. If you’re in Soho and don’t fancy something out of the ordinary then grab afternoon brunch with Ellie who will take you around Soho for some delicious food and great conversation.

3. Electric Diner

West London has Electric Diner to offer and it isn’t a bad offer at all. This American-French style bistro is great for curing a hangover, consuming maximum calories and, cooler yet, the interior is like walking onto the set of Back to the Future. Tip: order the lemon meringue. You can thank us later.

4. Lantana Café

Lantana apparently means a hardy invasive weed that thrives in unlikely environments. An accurate description for this tiny Australian café found in Fitzrovia. Despite being small, Lantana’s menu is generous with heaps of options. But, it would almost be a crime to go to an Australian café and not have a flat white. So, order their brunch but don’t forget the coffee.

5. The Jam Tree

A full English breakfast in London is something that must be tried. The Jam Tree has a selection of brilliant food but, as is the specialty of many London pubs that serve food, the full English is often a winner. The Jam Tree is certainly no loser.

6. The Gate

If you’re a vegetarian, it is not always easy to find somewhere to eat. However, The Gate is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in London. Its brunch menu contains huevos rancheros – a Mexican delight to improve any boring Sunday.

7. The Cereal Killer Café

It’s very easy to get caught up in the new wave of breakfast that’s sweeping over London. But, one café in particular is taking us back to our childhood one bowl of cereal at a time. The Cereal Killer Café is the place to go if all you want is a taste of how life used to be before poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.

8. Ben’s Canteen

Ben’s Canteen is an all day hangout so if you’re looking for brunch, dinner or drinks in London; take yourself to this little South West café. The prices are agreeable and the baba ghanoush phenomenal

9. The Haberdashery

This aptly named café is like walking straight into nineteen-twenty-whenever with its antique collection of eclectic furniture. But, aside from aesthetics, the seasonal ingredients make the food boom – but it booms better with a cheeky glass of prosecco!

10. Anderson and Co

Anderson and Co is a little known delight in South East London that offers the works when it comes to brunch – eggs, avocados, toast, you name it. The coffee here is beyond spectacular and the service is top notch. A definite must if you find yourself in Peckham.

It’s said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but we reckon it’s time to make it brunch. London’s got the typical greasy spoon cafe that’s cheap and cheerful and the go to place if you’re in the mood to try full English breakfast but there’s breakfast extravagance to be found in the form of brunch in a skyscraper. In fact, our local Katie is ready to do just that with you on her skyscaper brunch. Delicious!
