London’s Best Brunches

Apr 24th 2015 | lifestyle | london

In recent times the brunch culture has swept across London and we couldn’t be happier. What better way to recover after a night of partying than by strolling out to indulge in a delicious, lazy weekend brunch? SINTILLATE selects some of the best weekend breakfast and brunch spots available in the capital.




Chiltern Firehouse
London’s most fashionable restaurant is almost impossible to secure a dinner reservation for, that’s unless you’re an A-list celebrity of course. Fear not! The Chiltern Firehouse has an excellent brunch menu available at the weekends and with London set to enjoy a roasting summer, be sure to arrive early to enjoy brunch outside in the charming courtyard. Favourites include Lobster and scrambled eggs and crab omelette. Arrive early!

Duck and Waffle
No 'Best Brunches' feature is complete without a mention of Duck and Waffle. When you're celebrating a special occassion, a sky-high brunch with breathtaking views will always go down well. The signature duck and waffle is a must-order. Book well in advance or arrive outside of peak times to secure a much sought after table!

Jackson & Rye
Trendy Soho hangout Jackson & Rye is modelled on a uber-cool US diner. Popular throughout the week as well as at weekends, you’re advised to book in advance with brunch offered until 4.30pm at the weekends (Thank you!). Favourites here include buttermilk pancakes; prison eggs (scrambled with jalapeno and borlotti beans) and slightly healthier options of an egg white omelette with spinach.

The Wolseley
For an unforgettable occasion, head to The Wolseley. In our opinion, the capital’s best and grandest café. You’ll be in good company with celebrities and royals regularly visiting for their brunch fix. Breakfast is served to perfection here. The clatter, chatter and incredible people watching are, of course, an added bonus! Gaining a solid reputation in recent years, it’s now firmly on many a London visitor’s checklist, alongside nearby Fortnum & Mason.




Riding House Cafe
During the week this brasserie attracts local professionals seeking a bite to eat before a day of meetings. Expect a cool Oxford Street shopper at the weekends and delicious offers to keep you full up for a day of shopping! Favourites include poached pear and strawberry with greek yogurt and granola and the fry ups are definitely not to be missed. The coffee – currently from Allpress roastery is good too.
