Top 7 Luxury Brunch Spots in London.


Today I bring you my favourite luxury brunch spots in London. I'm a bit of a brunch addict, and am very slowly making my way around London testing them all out. It's hard because I don't live in London, I live in Surrey, so it takes me an hour to get into central London. Sadly I don't have time to do brunch during the weekdays when I'm in London for work, as, ya know, I have work. 

Anywho, so I bring you this post as part of the brilliant London Linkup. London's brunches are one of the many reasons why I love this city, but I miss the Australian cafe culture and brunch addiction immensely, so every so often I just crave a decent Eggs Benny or French Toast or Pancakes. Cue the following restaurants...

1. Granger & Co, Notting Hill

Now, I first went to Granger & Co a few years ago with Max, he took me there as it's an Australian cafe that does bloody good food. Once I'd tested it out a few times I decided to review it, and it was the first brunch place I blogged about other than Automat in Mayfair (which has since closed down...not ashamed to say I cried, it was amazing). I've been quite a few times since, and I always have exactly the same; The Ricotta Pancakes with Courgette Fries on the side. Trust me, they're insanely good.

2. The Providores, Marylebone

A coupla years ago I was introduced to The Providores, again by Max (he knows me so well!). He knew how much I'd love it, so one Saturday morning we went along and I fell in love with the delicious food and 'Aussie-style' interior. It's actually run by New Zealanders, but their brunch culture is exactly like the Aussie brunch culture, and their French Toast is to die for. But take it from me, always ask them for Greek Yoghurt on the side and the Vanilla Spiced Figs instead of the bacon!

3. Kopapa, Seven Dials

Kopapa in the Seven Dials area of Covent Garden is the sister restaurant of The Providores, and is just as good. It has a much more relaxed vibe, and is an amazing spot for people watching! Grab a seat outside, order some brunch, and make sure you don't leave without trying their incredible sorbet!

4. Ivy Market Grill, Covent Garden

As soon as the email pinged into my inbox telling me the Ivy Market Grill was open for bookings, I booked, and I wasn't disappointed. Their twist on the classic Eggs Benedict is just insanely good, and the restaurant interior just oozes class. I mean come on, who doesn't love spinach and avocado!? Plus, it makes it feel a little healthier! The Veggie Breaky also looked amazing, but skip the courgette fries, they're nowhere near as good as Granger & Co's. The Ivy Market Grill is understated luxury at its finest.

5. Le Caprice, Mayfair

Now, if you're looking for true luxury this is the place to go! It's no secret that it's one of my favourite restaurants in London. Sister restaurant to The Ivy Market Grill, Le Caprice has a wide and varied history, and was even a favourite with Princess Diana. Located just next to my club, it's very handy to pop in to on the way to/from my car, and they do a really really excellent eggs benedict. In fact, it may be the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had. Plus, they do a Jazz Brunch. Sip champagne and eat delicious food whilst listening to live jazz music, what more could you want?

6. Duck & Waffle, The City

If you're over East then you're gonna want to go to Duck & Waffle. Fine dining on the 40th Floor of Heron Tower, they serve a fabulous all-day brunch menu. I adored the signature Duck & Waffle dish, and the BBQ spiced crispy pigs ears are also well worth trying! The service is great, and the restaurant is perfect instagram fodder ;)

7. The Wolseley, Mayfair

Now this The Wolseley the perfect place for old world elegance. I've never been too keen on the service, but the food is very good and it's quite a magical place. Definitely one for either a special occasion or brunch with the girls!

So there we have it! And if you fancy something very different from your normal brunch, why not try the Sake no Hana brunch, Umai Saturdays? The food is delicious and ideal for those who aren't a huge fan of conventional brunches!

  1. I am now craving French Toast right now!! I've sadly never went out for brunch. I either have breakfast foods in the morning (like 6ish) or for dinner but never in the middle! As much as my dad loves his meats, I think breakfast is his favorite meal of the day but he never makes it for brunch. :(

    1. French toast is my favourite! I never know whether to order that or eggs benedict, and it's always a real struggle not to order both!

  3. Fantastic selection, I'm a big fan of Granger & Co - when I went to the Notting Hill one it was wall to wall celebrities though I do like the Clerkenwell one for more space

  7. My mouth is seriously watering. I haven't been to any of these! So sad. Milan has a bustling brunch scene but pancakes and french toast are rarities sadly so I think I'll have to make a special trip next time I'm back in the UK! P.s I would definitely cry if my favourite places shut too, no shame in that at all xxx

  11. I love Providores! It's great on a Sunday afternoon because there's the food market in the car park nearby. You can stock up on provisions and let the kids play in the park. A really nice way to spend Sundays.

  12. Delicious selection! Have you been to The Mirror Room in The Rosewood Hotel for brunch? Overwhelmingly ridiculous selection using produce from their slow food market in the square at the weekend. I died and went to pancakey heaven!

  15. Granger & Co and Duck & Waffle are my ultimate brunch destinations - favorites! I love the inventive menu at D&W ... always pleasantly surprised how tasty and innovative they can be at the same time. x
