Bourne & Hollingsworth, Clerkenwell
Worth a visit to see it’s ‘Garden Room’ alone, this super-cool Clerkenwell hotspot, offers classic brunch dishes like Huevos Benedictos (chorizo, avocado, béarnaise sauce and pico de gallo salsa) and Crispy Potato Hash – best enjoyed with bottomless Bloody Marys and Bellinis.
Bad Egg, Moorgate
Already gaining a cult following in Moorgate, Bad Egg’s Fried Chicken, Caramelised Banana, Maple Syrup & French Toast are all standout hits on their bottomless brunch menu, which also includes unlimited Bloody Mary’s, Prosecco or Mimosas for £30 per person.
Bring the spirit of Latin America to your Sunday at Coya where you can tuck into a contemporary Peruvian menu and enjoy unlimited Champagne, Peruvian Punch and Bloody Marys, to the sound of international DJ sets and regular live music performances. Did we mention there’s an interactive guacamole stand?
Dishoom, various locations
Whether you opt for contemporary King’s Cross or the garden-themed terrace in Shoreditch, Dishoom is a real crowd pleaser when it comes to brunch. The Bombay café puts an Indian twist on British classics – think the ever-popular bacon naan and spicy scrambled eggs, chilli cheese toast and hug-in-a-mug cups of chai.
We can’t get enough of Brixton-based Kricket’s refreshing take on Indian good. Their unmissable brunch includes Goan sausage rolls with layered paratha, coriander chutney, pickled red onion and curry leaf mayo amongst other sweet and savoury delights.
Kurobuta, Marble Arch
Boasting live DJ’s and a freshly cooked buffet of build-your-own ramen, fried chicken, beer grilled steaks, salmon sashimi pizza, miso soup, sushi and sashimi, Scott Hallsworth’s western take on Japanese is the coolest party brunch in the capital. Don’t forget you receive unlimited beer, wine and a cocktail on arrival.
Lima Floral, Covent Garden
For brunch with a healthy twist try Lima Floral, a Peruvian outpost with brunch delights that include tasty Quinoa Porridge and Amazonian Chocolate Mousse for dessert. To leave feeling virtuous enjoy yours with a healthy smoothie, or indulge with four glasses of Prosecco for an additional £10 per person.
