On Sundays, we brunch

Arguably the best meal of the week, here are some of my favourite weekend brunch spots in London, definitely worth getting out of bed for (not necessarily in order).

34. Primarily known for its organic steaks and seasonal game and fish, the elegant restaurant from Caprice Holdings also has a less carnivorous side, with a great selection of salads and light dishes, as well as many more indulgent options (they do a mean Mac n Cheese). Their weekend menu is particularly dreamy, serving up brunch staples from eggs to waffles, in a warm and inviting setting reminiscent of old-world charm

Christopher’s. Brunch at this Covent Garden institution is one for all London foodies, be it for the all-American classics, or for healthier eats from thee super superfoods weekend menu. We found the perfect balance when we went: avocado toast and a warm kale and butternut squash salad (power-packed with beluga lentils, quinoa, pomegranate and flax seeds), followed by the truly decadent brioche French toast, oozing rich dark chocolate with every bite… It might just be the best French toast to be found in all of London-town!

Chiltern Firehouse. Sundays are always a cosy affair in the cobbled courtyard of the very chic Chiltern Firehouse. Expect all the usual suspects for the perfect brunch, including melt-in your mouth buttermilk pancakes smothered with blueberries, crème fraîche and all the maple syrup. Full review, here.

Granger & Co. But to really up the ante on your weekend-pancake fix, head to this Aussie-style eatery in Notting Hill for Bill Granger’s signature ricotta hotcakes, served up with lashings of honeycomb butter. Just be prepared to queue, as these are now something of a cult-classic with a fan following to match! Full review, here.

The Delaunay. Sister restaurant to the Wolseley, the European-style diner off the Strand, offers a grand experience, as much about your meal (a truly sumptuous affair by the way) as about the ambience, handsome decor and excellent service.

The Providores and Tapa Room. Buzzy vibes and an offbeat brunch in Marylebone. I’m still dreaming of their sweet potato and miso hash assembled with a soft boiled egg, garlic labne and praline. They were kind enough to make me a vegetarian version (with avocado), although I’m told that the original, with grilled chorizo, really hits the spot too!

Ben’s Canteen. Neighbourhood hangout in Battersea which has become quite a local fixture over the years. With its cheerful laid back ambience, this is a perfect spot for those boisterous catch-ups with old friends!

  1. Thanks for any other great article. Where else could anyone get that kind of info in such an ideal
    method of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week,
    and I am at the search for such information.
