Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day but brunch is certainly the trendiest. In a predominantly grey and concrete city, Londoners are particularly fond of a booze-laden brunch. To help you curb your hangover and your Sunday morning hunger pangs, we’ve curated a selection of the city’s very best brunch offerings.
Isabel has became a staple amongst discerning diners from Mayfair and beyond. This is no quaint brunch spot. The restaurant and bar is frequented by the city’s most fabulous and hedonistic crowds. Isabel has a spectacular all-day brunch menu that serves up the fine establishment’s off-centre take on traditional breakfast dishes. Our reccommendation: The fluffy scrambled egg and smoked salmon served with homemade potato rosti.
The Good Egg, Stoke Newington
Since its opening, The Good Egg has had Londoners queuing around street corners for a chance to sample their shakshuka. Founded in 2013 by a trio of like-bellied friends, the eatery is a delightful mix of Israeli, New York and Middle Eastern influences. Inspired by Tel Aviv’s thriving food scene, this spot offers scrumptious with a hint of the exotic.
Dirty Bones, Shoreditch
Dirty Bones is East London’s take on the quintessential NYC brunch hotspot. With the expansive bar, restored marble columns and ambient lighting, Dirty Bones is the birthplace of American-inspired over-easy chic. Order yourself a bottle of prosecco or a Pimm’s cup to accompany your egg’s benedict or buttermilk chicken and waffles.
