Brunch, anyone?

Since moving to London almost two years ago now, brunching has become my weekly ritual. Saturday or Sunday, a free morning (or afternoon!) means the chance to visit a new brunch hotspot. With so many lush bistros, breakfast clubs and restaurants across London serving eggs in more ways than you can imagine, i couldn’t not share my love for these cute places. Below I’ve formed a little list of mine and my friends favourite bruncheries in London, with a few lines about each in case you want to give them a try!

The Good Egg (Stoke Newington)

Stoke Newington’s The Good Egg is everything you’d want (and more) for your weekend brunch trip. It’s quirky decor gives a cosy feel amongst the buzz of people chatting away over coffee. You’ll be spoilt for choice over the menu, listing tasty instagrammable foods made with high quality ingredients yet maintaining a friendly, street food vibe. I highly recommend the Shakshuka – it really is to die for. 

Green Room Cafe (Stoke Newington)

Just down the road is Green Room Cafe – a unique and shabby place which from the outside appears to be a run down sort of florists, selling magical wild flowers and rare plants. However, hidden beyond the florists lies a perfect brunch spot, decorated in plants upon plants and chunky sourdough loaves. Here you’ll find brunch with a twist – most foods are homemade and seasoned with homegrown herbs, adding unique flavour. The juices and smoothies are as bright as the rainbow and fruity as hell. Try the ‘beans on toast’ if you fancy something a little different!

Scarlett Green (Soho) & Daisy Green (Marble Arch)

The ‘Green’ chain brings an Australian brunch and coffee vibe to the city, with each bistro individually designed to give a cool, chic feel. With music to get you in the mood, Soho’s Scarlett Green is a vibrant and trendy hang out, loved for it’s bottomless brunch and charcoal toast. Daisy Green is the laid back sister, very chilled with a lush salad display and delicious Aussie menu serving their infamous ‘holy f*ck hollandaise’.

26 Grains (Covent Garden)

Down the hidden back streets of Covent Garden is Neal’s Yard, where you’ll find the idyllic 26 Grains. Originally only serving the most beautiful porridge bowls and coffee, there is now a savoury menu including yellow Dahl, eggs and halloumi. 26 Grains is entirely organic and vegetarian, supporting local produce and health and wellness. About the size of your average garage, 26 Grains has limited indoor seating but tables outside allow for people to enjoy the quirks of the yard over a bowl of ‘Nordic Pear’ porridge – (unbelievably good!).

Deliciously Ella (Mayfair)

Homely, vegan, cute, nutritious and delicious. It can only be Deliciously Ella right? This central London gem is the ultimate health spot, serving coffee, shakes and smoothies, cakes, breakfast, lunch and dinner and its ALL vegan! This welcoming cafe and it’s super friendly staff can tell you all about their food products, and what they recommend. You’ll be blown away with the PB&J Bagel, not to mentioned the Blueberry Pancakes and Chai Pudding – all feel good foods made with love. 

Riding House Cafe (Fitzrovia)

Sugar dusted pancakes and yolks brighter than the sun, if you’re looking for quality and sophistication, you can’t go wrong opting for the Riding House Cafe. With a lush decor and pretty cocktails on tap, you can expect great service and buzzing atmosphere here. The great variety menu includes Baked Camembert, Kedgeree and eggs all ways. RHC is perfect for a bottomless brunch with friends or a brief lunch stop off whilst shopping – it never fails to disappoint. 

Happy brunching! 

Love & eggs,
