Did you think that the idea of breakfast and lunch originated by Guy Beringer in 1895 would surpass more than a century, becoming the modern worlds dining experience craze? In London, it had become a trend before the rest of the world adopted it. Here we have selected a few restaurants which have been taking the brunch scene by storm.


#1 Farm Girl

This trio of restaurants combining specialty coffee and the food experience have a made a great name for themselves in the last three years. Their focus is not solely on food but personal wellness as well, using high quality and sustainable ingredients as a key to success. To this end, they cater a wide range of diets, including vegan, gluten- and lactose-free. Each location bares its own identity but has an overall style: retro and picturesque. Rose Mann and Anthony Hood believed London was missing a key factor in its already sizeable culinary world and they were right. Thereby, Farm Girl became known for pioneering the newfound trend in healthy brunching.

Brunch in the clouds with an all-around dining experience. This restaurant hosts breathtaking views over the city of London, so you can make sure your brunch experience is indeed elevated.

#3 Mildreds

In 1988, Dianne Thomas and Jane Muir had a dream to see a restaurant flourish, which focused on serving an array of international vegetarian cuisines. Back then, the idea was inspired by the gift of youth and Mildreds grew to being a local food hero. Since the opening of the first Mildreds, they have opened four others, each attaining a personality of its own. The initial ideas were retained all the years, keeping the fresh and nutritional dishes to all who sought out the uplifting vegetarian/vegan food experience.

Here you can find an array of food made of plant-based ingredients. The menu is free from dairy, refined sugars, additives and food chemicals. Notting Hill has welcomed it with open arms and Farmacy is a positive addition to the many local eateries in the area and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
