Boozy and Bottomless or Hearty and Wholesome: 11 of London’s Best Brunch Spots

EL&N MARKET PLACE LONDON MOBILE 2

There aren’t many activities with such fierce competition as there are when it comes to choosing the best brunch in London.

The best meal of the day; the perfect ‘catch-up with friends’ spot that doesn’t require waking up too early; a brilliant fusion between early morning foods and lunchtime dishes… a great London brunch is never a bad idea.

In true London fashion, there’s a brunch for every occasion. From the wholesome pancakes and coffee combos to the vegan-friendly brunches in London and the bottomless brunch extravaganzas (complete with dancers, live music and DJs) – you’ll find your new 11am foodie favourite in one corner of the capital city or another.

Read on for our top brunches in London!

Brunch at Farm Girl is the perfect midpoint between indulgent and healthy. Just a short walk from Notting Hill Gate Station you’ll find the OG Farm Girl, home to its unique country farmhouse feel crossed with a California coastal vibe. Brunch here is something special, combining damn good Australian coffee with organic, colourful dishes. 

Everything at Farm Girl is sustainably sourced and organic, which means you can feel good about stuffing your face while digging into the likes of smoothie bowls, avocado toast, Turkish eggs and plenty more. Everything here’s also pretty healthy, which is the excuse you (didn’t) need to treat yourself to a pastry, too.

Italian food might not be your first thought when someone mentions brunch but it’s something you’ll definitely consider once you’ve heard about the incredible menu at Harry’s Dolce Vita. This fancy Knightsbridge spot is laid back yet stylish, providing the perfect weekend backdrop for a Mediterranean-infused brunch. 

Come here for regular brunch dishes stepped up a notch: think crab Benedict, waffles with bacon and blueberries, and plenty of delicious, traditional Italian offerings. Cocktails follow a similar streak of adding a twist to a classic, with a long range of aperitifs and an even larger number of fancy G&Ts to keep you suitably hydrated.

COYA’s Inca brunch takes Peruvian dining to new levels. Not just a brunch but an ‘immersive brunch experience’, live entertainment and Latin energía are served here along with Peruvian favourites to keep you buzzing. Perhaps not a brunch spot if you’re staunchly a fan of avo, eggs and a strong coffee but definitely one if you’re looking to branch out from the norm, head to COYA for Chilean sea bass, Arroz Nikkei and colourful cocktails. 

Brunch here also comes with spectacular performers, Latin beats and the promise of dancing before dessert is served. It’s brunch that definitely sets the tone for a spontaneous, fun afternoon. Wave goodbye to your previous plans of heading back home when it finishes.

Feeling swish? Aubaine is the place to go for a stylish London brunch where you’ll take just as many photos of the decor as you will of your meal. And what a meal: as you might expect from this Mayfair location, Aubaine’s brunch menu is mouthwatering. 

It’s certainly one you’ll want to have a scroll through before you arrive, so as not to frustrate your brunch companions with how long it takes you to slowly work your way through reading the entire menu. Eggs play a leading role on the menu here, along with lobster Benedict, smoked salmon and toasted brioche. Not in the mood for typical breakfast food? There are also salads, sandwiches and small plates to gaze at. Plus the cocktail menu, of course.

EL&N Cafe is undeniably one of the most Instagrammable cafes in the world. Which automatically makes it a brilliant spot for brunch in London, too. Fortunately, the food here is just as delicious, coming in with a range of equally as pink lattes, smoothie bowls and rose-tinted pastries. 

Hot chocolates come adorned with a Nutella rim and molten chocolate domes, while dishes are served with edible flowers and plenty of colour. There’s an entire menu page dedicated to a rainbow of lattes, and a large range of vegan and vegetarian options means everyone is impressed here.

Serata Hall is known best for two things: its incredible coal-fired pizzas and its equally – if not more – incredible bottomless brunch. Come here with an empty stomach and a desire to stuff yourself silly with chilli hash browns, truffle scrambled eggs and buttermilk fried chicken. 

Boujee Bottomless Brunch, as it’s known, comes with the unmissable option of a “Make-Your-Own Bubbly Cocktail Tray” including all you need to make lots of Strawberry Royale, Bellini, Mimosa, Kir Royale and Empress Cocktails between you and your friends. Brunch alternatives on the manu include a huge list of pizzas that’ll definitely line your stomach.

Rhythm and Brunch is the name of the game at 100 Wardour Street. Taking place every Saturday, it’s four hours of lively music with either a two or three course menu and plenty of bottomless Prosecco. 

Pick between starters, mains and desserts (and sides if you’re super hungry) and stick around after the party for when this cocktail bar takes on a slightly more sophisticated style. It’s a weekend London brunch that’s an event all by itself. It’s also in the heart of Soho, which means there are loads of places nearby if you want to continue the party afterwards.

You’ll take friends to Roka for brunch who’ve visited London a few times before and feel they’ve already completed the traditional London brunch circuit. Because Roka does things a little differently. Plates of delicious Japanese dishes work their way in front of you, punctuated by bottomless bubbles or wine and a suitably vibrant atmosphere. 

Wave goodbye to avocado on toast because, at Roka, you’ll discover the best brunches are made up from sashimi, gyoza, glazed baby back ribs and salmon fillet teriyaki. Upgrade to the premium Robata selection if you’re really looking to impress.

Grind’s buttermilk pancakes are something to write home about. So are the breakfast burritos, sweet potato harissa cakes and one-pan eggs. In short, everything you’ll feast upon during brunch at Grind is delicious. Especially when paired with 90 minutes of Prosecco or Bloody Marys. 

The best thing about Grind is that it’s a perfect brunch spot no matter whether you’re popping by after a workout for a quick bite to eat or you’re gearing up for a long day with your friends and a drink or two (responsibly) in hand. The millennial pink and green backdrop just adds to the occasion.

Bluebird brunch is a classy affair, which is probably what you’d expect if someone invites you to brunch in Chelsea. Home to a restaurant and cocktail bar, weekend brunch at Bluebird takes a little from column A and a little from column B to bring you French toast and praline pancakes alongside Fevertree cocktails and some magical G&Ts. 

Indoor and outdoor seating means you’re safe to book a table at Bluebird whatever the weather, and a smart-casual dress code is an opportunity to pull on some of those fancy clothes that’ve been patiently waiting at the back of your wardrobe all year.

Brunch at Dalloway Terrace is perfectly wholesome. The kind of place you’d go for a long overdue catch up with friends, before heading off for an equally as wholesome afternoon cycling around Richmond Park or something equally as fun. Dig into a two course menu of rainbow açai bowls, Cornish crab cakes, paprika spiced potato hash and eggs Florentine (among many others) while sipping on coffee and juice. 

It’s a non-alcoholic brunch (although you can supplement with cocktails if you wish) that acts as the perfect beautiful backdrop for a weekend morning in London. In true Dalloway Terrace style, the decor changes here throughout the year. Come along season to season and witness a stunning array of blooms and greenery in every direction.
