From Aussie brunches of banana bread to steak frites at Nest and Gaucho via gin experiences at Mrs Fogg’s and live DJs – discover the best brunch spots to see friends, family and work mates this weekend.
The Aussie bottomless brunch at Beany Green
Beany Green founder Prue Freeman is an expert when it comes to weekend brunch: “I’d book some 1Rebel classes beforehand [Rounds, Reshape and Rumble classes are on all morning] or take a walk to Columbia Road flower market and through the East End so you’re really hungry”. She then recommends ordering “the healthy no-carb celeriac with chilli or we do a fancy bacon roll: roti, eggs, crispy onions, spicy sauce and spinach.”
Their bottomless brunch menu is also on hand every day (8am-3.30pm) and 7pm on weekends (last orders at 5.30pm) with one savoury dish, one sweet dish (smashed avocado on charcoal bread and the award-winning banana bread sandwich, thanks very much). It comes with free-flowing mimosas and prosecco for a leisurely 90 minutes for £42.50pp.
DJ brunches at Nest
Every Saturday from 12pm-4pm, Nest hosts brunches on Bishopsgate (grab a table under the blossom tree on warm days) while DJ Spiral takes over the decks for an afternoon soundtrack like no other. With bottomless cocktails (brunch is £15 with a £25 supplement for drinks) created by their mixologists and a menu featuring veggie rarebit, steak frites, brunch burger and eggs, this is the best way to spend your Saturday.
The immersive brunch at Mrs Foggs
Mrs Fogg’s weekend brunches are legendary (plus they’re launching a Sunday one now too) with two courses of delicious food and free-flowing pink prosecco (from £25pp-£45). Taking place on a would-be Victorian steamship with a live band, choose from starters of pastries and cardamom yoghurt, eggs of your choice, full breakfasts (for vegans, meat-free sausage, truffled portobello mushroom, roasted vine tomatoes, spinach, beans and a homemade potato hash brown), waffles and bubble and squeak.
Cocktails and fizz brunches at All Bar One
From 10am daily, All Bar One offers up brunches of delight with berry bowls, truffle scrambled eggs, waffles and shakshuka. Choose from vegan smoothies or, if it’s a celebration, £30pp means unlimited Prosecco, Tanqueray London Dry Gin & tonic, Aperol Spritz or your choice of flavoured Daiquiris. For £10 more, enjoy unlimited Porn Star Martini, Espresso Martini or Long Island Iced Tea.
Weekday brunches at Grind Liverpool Street
Cosy up in a booth and enjoy an incredible brunch menu from Grind. It’s got everything you could possibly be in the mood for: coconut yoghurt, rhubarb, chia seeds, house granola; smashed avocado, poached eggs, chilli, toast; full vegetarian breakfast, eggs as you like, avocado, sweet potato cake, hash brown, mushrooms, slow-roasted tomatoes, spinach, aubergine, baked beans, toast or sandwiches from midday. Their bottomless brunch on weekend is £16 extra for (responsible) drinks. Add a portion of invisible chips for £3 and Grind will match the donation for Choose Love – a charity doing whatever it takes to help refugees and displaced people from the crisis in Ukraine.
Electro brunch feasts at Gaucho
