Brother Marcus Review

Top 10 things to know about Brother Marcus:

1)  Some friends get along because they’re almost like family. It helps when they share a common interest, like opening a cafe in which one friend looks after the kitchen, another looks after the front of house, and the third keeps tabs on the finances.

2)  Brother Marcus cafe restaurant in Balham might not be the largest in the area, but queues regularly form outside with punters keen to savour their all-day brunch menus, mouthwatering cakes, and sturdy coffees and cocktails.

3)  The three owners - school friends with a love of fine food - have kitted out the whole venue themselves, including a cosy heated alfresco dining terrace. They also painted the walls and built the seating for the cafe without filling the coffers of multinational Swedish furniture stores.

4)  No corners are cut here in their deceptively simple menu. The Brother Special has one of the most intensely yellow scrambled eggs you’ll see in London and that's without using any Instagram filters. The salmon is equally vibrant, with a hint of purple from the beetroot curing; ultra healthy thanks to an abundance of chard and asparagus.

5)  Provenance is vital to the Brother Marcus culinary trio. The eggs are from St. Ewes Cornwall, whilst the crunchy sourdough you enjoyed in your brunch dish is from The Celtic Bakers.

6)  Feel the familial love for your friends as you munch on a hearty Sister Special brunch dish which is filled with bacon and poached eggs.

7)  The drinks list is longer than the food menu, with a significant portion offering hot artisanal coffees and teas. For the health-conscious, their smoothies are a must-try: avocado, pear and spinach with vanilla is the magic combination that would convince any dedicated carnivore to empty the greens from supermarket shelves.

8)  The cocktail menu is significantly shorter, but all the family favourites are there, from a brother Mary to a mimosa, to an invigorating espresso martini.

9)  Brother Marcus is an all-inclusive household; vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free guests are welcomed with open arms. Check out their divine almond and polenta cakes as well the lemon and lime drizzle.

10) Take the family, take a friend or even dine alone, because this is the type of all-embracing London brunch cafe where you’ll walk out with a full stomach and potentially new friends.
