If there is a city in the world that I cannot enjoy more brunch food, it’s definitely in the one of London. In my last visit seeing old high school friends, I tried more than 7 avocado toasts and came up with the conclusion of building a blog post comparing and contrasting each and everyone of them. Shoutout to the one of Hubbard and Bell, my favorite.
- Nº 11 Pimplico Road: avocado toast, crispy halloumi burger and pancakes with coconut yogurt and raspberry spread. Big interior space for large groups and two exterior tables that are the best for a small party of 4 on a sunny day!
2. The Locals Cafe: Omelette with truffle and matcha pancakes. Small space, bad service but delicious food.
3. Megan’s: Avocado toast and Nutella danish cookie. Excellent service, excellent food, and big space with 3 floors.
4. Ellen’s cafe: Avocado toast. Too pricey for the quality of food.
5. Soho house greek street: Chocolate caramel cake. Only for members of Soho house club. Slow service.
6. Kahaila Limited: Small coffee shop in Shoreditch village. Their desserts are insanely creative and delicious.
7. Hubbard and bell: my favorite in London! I believe this one was my favorite in the city because of the whole wheat bread, fresh avocado and and lemon squeeze.
8. Farm girl: one of my favorites too. They have a really nice French waiter that was really polite and sociable with us!
9. Peggy Porschen: dreaming about a Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen reunion eating cupcakes with chocolate frosting and red velvet cakes? Dreams become true in Peggy Porschen.
10. Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings: Please reserve ahead of time for weekend brunch to be able to get a spot.
Below is a small list of favorite venues to visit near the brunch places:
1. Visit Notting hill village: I recommend arriving to Notting Hill, put your name in the list of Farm Girl and meanwhile waiting for your table (which can take up to an hour due to the demand of this brunch restaurant) walk around the Notting hill’s streets. You can take pictures in the colourful houses and buy souvenirs in the markets close by.
2. Visit Carnaby street: ideal to visit while shopping around Regent’s street, Oxford street and Piccadilly Circus. They have cute small boutiques with creative souvenirs to take back home.
3. Visit Shoreditch village: walk around creative graffiti walls, food markets and alternative shops.
4. Visit Harrods mall: Get cupcakes in Harrods food lounge while getting your Chanel or Prada bag!
5. Visit: Hyde park: Run, jog or simply walk around in this beautiful park.
6. Visit: Saatchi gallery
7. Take a picture at Toyroom’s flamingo wall
