The inaugural London Brunch Festival throws open its door this weekend to the city’s discerning brunch-goers. Here’s everything you need to know before you go…
London’s first ever brunch festival opens its doors this weekend bringing the very best of the city’s brunch scene to The Old Truman Brewery. Cafes, restaurants and street food vendors will deliver an international twist to the inaugural festival this weekend, each with a specially curated festival menu as well as one signature dish. Bring stretchy trousers because the line-up is a good one. Waffle On will be there with the best waffles in London – as awarded by Evening Standard. They’ll be joined by Urban Pantry, Cafe Miami, The Joint, Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, Benito’s Hat, On Cafe, Finest Fayre, Mac to the Future and Arancini Brothers. Visitors to the festival will have the tough task of voting for the Dish of the Festival following two days gorging on avocado and Mimosas.
Hackney-based The Pickle House will be taking up residency for the weekend to serve up said Mimosas, along with their renowned Bloody Mary’s. Real Kombucha ’s pop-up bar will serve ‘fermentation at its finest’, and The Gentleman Baristas, Origin Coffee Roasters and We Are Tea will be serving their premium coffee and tea. In addition, The Urban Cordial Co will be providing their lovingly handmade seasonal cocktails alongside a dedicated Prosecco and Mimosa bar.
For those with a sweet tooth, scrumptious baked goods and desserts will be on offer in the marketplace area, provided by the likes of Pophams Bakery, Naked Dough, The Flour Station and Sweet Nothing Bakehouse.
