Our Team Picks London’s Best Brunch Spots

Brunch is an institution. It’s not quite breakfast, not quite lunch – but it’s absolutely brilliant in its own right. We’re delighted to report London is absolutely heaving with great brunch spots – some well known, others less so. Here are our team’s favourite places to head for a chilled-out Sunday brunch.

 

Damian – The Ivy Club

The Club at The Ivy opened in September 2008, spanning three floors above The Ivy restaurant. It’s the perfect oasis for a relaxed Sunday brunch, with great seasonal menus by Executive Chef Gary Lee.

 

Jay – The Modern Pantry

There’s an extensive menu with eclectic ingredients and unique cooking styles. Brunch here is always exceptional.

 

Bonnie – The Farm Girl

Farm Girl

My favourite place for brunch, because I love cooking… has got to be my own house! My favourite thing to make is smashed avocado with balsamic roasted vine tomatoes. But, if I’m heading out for brunch I always go to Australian café The Farm Girl in Notting Hill.I love either the avocado toast or berry pancakes, with a flat white, after browsing the markets for an antique bargain and my weekend’s fresh produce. If you’re ever in Melbourne, I recommend Three Bags Full in Abbotsford, a suburb of Melbourne city.

 

Jen – Moosh Café

Sally – Aubaine

Aubaine brings a true blend of cosmopolitan style and French cuisine to South Kensington, promising an elegant Parisian catch up with your friends and family.

Brunch wins as my absolute favourite meal of the day! My top London five (in no particular order) are:

  1. MILK – A local favourite, with an Aussie vibe, MILK always has a queue that runs around the block. People move to Balham so this place can be local!
  2. Jacks at the Junction do great bottomless coffee and the biggest fry-ups for under £6.
  3. The Riding House Café in the heart of the West End is great for celeb watching, and serves delicious chorizo hash browns and the best smoothies.
  4. Bread Etc. – Unlimited varying types of bread from sourdough to cinnamon raisin breads. What more could you want?
  5. American waffles with maple syrup, fried egg and bacon, made by my sister. It fills you up for the day!

 

Ed – Ben’s Canteen

This Battersea restaurant serves one of the most indulgent brunches in London with great coffee and epic Bloody Marys.
