This week we’ve done the hard work for you, we’ve scoured the Pixie app and selected 5 of the top places to brunch in across the capital.
So come Saturday morning leave your weekday worries at home and whittle away the day surrounded by poached eggs, pancakes and your favourite paper at one of these great independent cafes.
Finks Salt and Sweet, Highbury
A deli and eatery by day and night, the vibe at Finks is relaxed and cool. Brunching here feels like sitting round your kitchen table with friends, only you don’t know the other people, the food is better and the coffee stronger and smoother. Head here when you have time to spare, because once you’re in you won’t want to leave.
Ben’s Canteen, Earlsfield
Head to Ben’s when you want a boozy brunch. For Ben created this independent in Earlsfield for exactly that purpose. A cross between a cool pub and a restaurant, he wanted to create somewhere for the people of this community to come together and relax in at the weekend. And that’s exactly what he’s done, our advice – take a group of friends and order a Bloody Mary.
The best of British seasonal flavours are promised at Salon, and that’s exactly what are served. Classic dishes, created from only the finest local, seasonal ingredients are given unusual twists; think scrambled eggs with ‘nduja or smashed avocado with pig’s cheek lardons. If you want something different that’s guaranteed to be delicious, Salon is for you.
Stamford Larder, Stamford Brook
Simply charming. Expect a mismatched collection of vintage furniture, friendly faces and award winning cupcakes to greet you at the door of Stamford Larder. Cosy and comforting, this cafe in West London is perfect for when you want a few home comforts in the city.
Bright and bold. Delicious food served anytime of the day in a creative, open space. Head to Cream when the sun is shining and you’re extra hungry.
