Picture of Top 10 Best Brunch in London

Filed under the categories

Having previously released a short taster of the best brunch in London, we thought it was time to go the whole pig and dish up the bacon. And eggs. And sausage. And muffins. And pancakes. And coffee. And Bloody Mary's. And, well you get the picture. London, resist the urge to eat cornflakes on the weekend. Get out of your jim-jams, splash some water on your face, and seek a more satisfying answer to your killer hangover. There are plenty of excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes in London that offer cooked delights, laid before you, mid-morning to mid-afternoon, that will bring you back to the land of the living.

One Canada Square
Canary Wharf / Restaurant / Cuisine: British

High class ladies drink raspberry Bellinis. Chaps nurse hangovers behind a forest of vegetables in salubrious Bloody Mary cocktails. A live pianist reinterprets Bob Marley's reggae. A decadent Art Deco setting at the base of Canary Wharf's fiscal monument, eerily enticing when the bankers are away for the weekend. The 3-course bottomless brunch on Saturdays is an unusual choice for some, but mark these words: the duck egg, broad bean, caper and shallot starter with sauteed girolles (pictured above); the truffle-like cep ravoli; and the baked New York blackberry cheesecake are all excellent methods for awakening the weekend. See for yourself. Contact One Canada Square directly

Heliot Steak House
West End / Restaurant / Cuisine: Steak House

You could opt for eggs benedict, a chilli fried egg & bacon brioche, or a pancake stack with blueberries and maple syrup, but then this hidden restaurant perched above The Hippodrome casino at Leicester Square was a Bookatable Best Steakhouse in London winner so there's really only one thing to do: order ribeye steak (350g for only £20!), topped by two eggs (to legitimize its brunch status), plus the best fries you've ever tasted, spinach, and a feisty Bloody Mary. Complete your mid-morning of decadence with the divine chocolate Kahlua dessert and a glass of champagne. This is living! Contact Heliot Steak House directly

Marylebone / Restaurant / Cuisine: Peruvian

Pachamama have jumped on the wonderful, unlimited alcohol with your brunch, bandwagon. The unlimited alcohol is a pisco punch, that hits exactly the right note of citrus and misses out on being sickly sweet so you can drink a fair few glasses - although be warned they are pretty generous with the pisco. Their brunch menu is an eclectic selection of Peruvian-Asian fusion food. The star of the menu is the Suspiro de Limena, strawberry and sorrel which is an utterly delicious dessert of meringue, custard and a tart citrus sauce. Contact Pachamama directly

Paddington / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: Scandinavian

Restaurant, bar and café KuPP in Paddington takes inspiration from Scandinavia. The menu is designed for grazing, sharing and social eating. Tuck into dishes that are colourful, fresh and delicious. The Bottomless Smörgasbord Brunch, served on a traditional wooden bord, occurs every Saturday and Sunday (12pm-5pm). Ninety glorious minutes of unlimited smörgasbord refills, alongside a choice of delicious herb and spice infused bottomless cocktails - the Scandi Collins or Aquavit Bloody Mary - or pints of Czech Pilsner Krusovice dispensed direct from their giant silver tanks, all at £30pp. Contact KuPP directly

Kings Cross / Restaurant / Cuisine: Cafe

Lively, bustling and noisy, Caravan is perhaps not the place to brunch if you're nursing a hangover, but for large groups of friends, or families with exuberant children it is the perfect hangout. Food with a decidedly globetrotting flavour is on the menu here, including such eclectic treats as Parmesan grits with girolles and boar sausages, coconut toast with poached rhubarb and poached eggs with aubergine puree and sumac. They're particularly proud of their coffee here too, and if a caffeine buzz isn't what you need there's always a white peach bellini or selection of juices and smoothies with which to wet your whistle. Contact Caravan directly

Dean Street Townhouse
Soho / Restaurant / Hotel / Cuisine: British

For those who wish to brunch in the luxurious environment of a private members' club but without the fees and dress code, Dean Street Townhouse in Soho is the place to go, if only for one of their four house special twists on Bloody Marys, including the brutally honest 'hair of the dog' flavoured with bitey quantities of mustard and horseradish. £6 for a fruit salad may be a bit pushy, but then the ham hock hash with duck egg is only £8.50, and who eats fruit salad for breakfast anyway? Contact Dean Street Townhouse directly

Marylebone / Restaurant / Cuisine: Italian

Situated around the corner from Baker Street Station, Fucina is handsomely modern yet rustic and upmarket yet casual. Fucina's brunch menu comprises all the best parts of authentic Italian cuisine. Choose from the more simplistic brunch offerings of salad, granola or croissants, or go full Italian and nosh on beautiful, handmade pizzas and pasta dishes that will energise your day. Fucina also offers larger dishes if you're still hungry after your pizza so treat yourself with an Italian doughnut with coffee. Contact Fucina directly

The Vincent
Hackney / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: Modern European

The £8 brunch offer here in East London is a good landing point for anyone who can't decide what to have for brunch on the weekend because it includes a bit of almost everything; brunch tapas, if you will. The rest of the brunch menu is substantial and includes a variety of vegetarian and pig-heavy dining options. There's also a sneaky 90-minute bottomless prosecco deal that's worth investing in (as long as you've already bossed it at the gym that morning). If the sun is shining, sit outside on the picnic benches and watch the world go by. Sweet-lovers, be safe in the knowledge that waffles also feature on the menu. Contact The Vincent directly
