Best Places To Brunch In London

Written by City Relay

Did you know that the word “brunch” was coined by Guy Beringer in 1895? The British writer published an article in Hunter’s Weekly and argued the benefits of combining breakfast and lunch instead of the typical early dinner after church. Who would think that this dining experience would survive more than a century of practice? In London, we are serious about our “brunch” so if you want to immerse yourself in the culture, here’s a list of restaurants that serve the best brunch in town.


#1 Farm Girl

This trio of restaurants is known for their combination of special coffee and the food experience. Their focus is not only on food but personal wellness as well. They use high-quality and sustainable ingredients as a key to success. To this end, they cater to a wide range of diets, including vegan, gluten- and lactose-free. Each location bears 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.

Notting Hill – 59a Portobello Rd, London, W11 3DB
Soho – 1 Carnaby St, Soho, London, W1F 9QG


#2 Duck and Waffle

Brunch in the clouds with an all-around dining experience. This restaurant is high up in the sky and it provides breathtaking views of London, giving guests a literal elevated brunch experience. It takes 40 seconds to reach the 36th floor placed 230 meters into the air. The food is sourced locally with seasonal ingredients making it an ever-changing experience. Designed by CetraRuddy, the decor combined with the open kitchen is a sight to behold.

#3 Mildreds

In 1988, Dianne Thomas and Jane Muir had a dream to see a restaurant flourish – specifically, one focused on serving an array of international vegetarian cuisines. Back then, the idea was inspired by the gift of youth and Mildreds grew to become a local food hero. Since the opening of the first Mildreds, they have opened four others in different locations, 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.

Soho – 45 Lexington Street, London, W1F 9AN
Camden – 9 Jamestown Rd, London, NW1 7BW
King Cross – 200 Pentonville Rd, London, N1 9JP
Dalston – 1 Dalston Square, London, E8 3GU


#4 Farmacy Kitchen

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. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The concept and primary goal of the restaurant is to promote healthy eating and lifestyle organically, which causes the menu to change with the seasons. They also create awe-inspiring cocktails and smoothies, which are incredibly refreshing.
