Our top 7 favourite brunch spots that will definitely send you into food coma mode!
Brunch is by far our best meal of the weekend, a cocktail or two is totally acceptable to drink before noon and an all day breakfast menu. Lets just say brunch is the new dinner and latest trend!!
Now, where does one go when they fancy the perfect eggs benedict or a healthy post workout snack? Don't worry we have selflessly brunched our way around the City and have it all covered so your little bellies will not be disappointed!
1. Honey & Co, Fitzrovia
From the perfectly seasoned shakshuka to the most delicious chocolate, cinnamon and hazelnut crunch cake (cake for breakfast? HECK YES!!!) all washed down with a Turkish coffee. This little Middle Eastern gem run by husband and wife is unbelievably good. Sarit Packer started cook when she was five, working with her Hsband, 12 years in the making this middle easten food is so great, with that home cooked feel! Don't forget to book as it gets busy. Don't say I didn't warn you!
2. The Good Egg, Stoke Newington
Another Middle Eastern offering. Bagels, Iraqi stuffed egg pitas and the best Jerusalem style breakfast. From the queue around the corner, you can just tell The Good Egg is going to be A good egg. This spot sets a high standard to which all brunches should aspire.
3. Duck and Waffle, City
Very few 'restaurants with a view' deliver when it comes to the food but not in this case! This sky-high brunch at London's highest up restaurant really is the most perfect and special setting to enjoy their signature Duck and Waffle - crispy duck leg confit, fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup. If you are feeling extra naughty (we always are ;)) try the Full Elvis, a sweet and sticky mountain of waffles, bananas, peanut butter, fruit and cream. YUM!
4.The Delaunay, Covent Garden
From delicious home made pastries to eggs cooked in every way possible, you simply cannot go wrong at The Delaunay, one of the most famous spots in London. With a more traditional atmosphere, The Delaunay is owned by Corbin and King, who also own The Wolseley, another top favourite! Famed in London for their eggs benedict which has been transferred to the menu at the Delaunay too!
The food and service always delivers at best, but the best thing about this hot spot is its buzzy brasserie atmosphere.
5.Dishoom - Kings Cross, Covent Garden, Shoreditch, Carnaby St
The queue will be well worth it at this Bombay cafe, Dishoom. The bacon naan roll is a classic but the kejriwal - two fried eggs on chilli cheese toast is a firm fave. Wash it down with the best chai tea ever! I say get the whole menu and share. Breakfast runs until midday so aim to get there a couple of hours earlier.
6. Granger & Co - Notting Hill, Kings Cross
Nowhere is more civalised than Aussie Bill Granger's hot spot, Granger and Co. This place ticks all the boxes from food to atmosphere to even a spot of shopping afterwards! Simplicity, deliciousness and the most unreal ricotta hot cakes topped with maple syrup butter and banana slices!
7. The Good Life Eatery - Belgravia, Chelsea
Last but not least a place for the health conscious, the ones who have already done a Barry's Bootcamp class whilst your laying in (guilty). The Good Life serve the best protein shakes in town. For a second I thought the Choc Norris (made with avocado, cacao and almond milk) was actually a chocolate milkshake. This place has such a feel good factor, from its nutritious food menu to the friendly staff. Eat clean, train dirty!
