It must be everyone’s favourite meal of the week in London, but with an overwhelming choice of restaurants on offer, it can be hard to pick where to go. Our guide to the top five places to eat brunch in East London will without a doubt make your decision easier; it is an extremely important decision after all.
Honouring the beloved Iranian-style cafés of Bombay, Dishoom providing more than just your average brunch will guarantee an unforgettable one with an exotic tang. The traditional ingredients and flavour combinations include pineapple-pink-peppercorn jam with a side of chocolate chai tea, tempted yet? The food is not the only impressive thing about this restaurant, as the interiors are truly admirable and upon arrival you feel as though you have stepped out of London into another world. After you’ve visited once you will be hooked, as you know what they say, a ‘Big Bombay’ is the best way to start the day.
If you need a boost of goodness on the Sunday morning after the night before, then the Peruvian menu at Andina packed with superfoods is exactly what you need. Go traditional with eggs and avocado on sourdough toast, or go the whole-hog with sweet potato pancakes and coconut whipped cream. Why not give the ‘Super Bloody Mary’ a go if you really need an extra kick to start the day.
The London Coffee Guide has labelled this Hoxton hotspot as ‘a café with real soul.’ We are not sure about you, but that sounds like the kind of place to have brunch! If you want to get a taste of the best that Embassy East can offer, then their cheese toasties will go down a treat, not to mention their velvety smooth cups of coffee.
A trip to this little gem on East London’s Broadway Market will guarantee nothing but seasonal and organic ingredients and will be sure to spice up your usual brunch routine. The tapas-style menu offers everything from the ‘Moroccan scramble’ to the ‘harissa Bloody Mary’, and if you still need your sweet fix after the spice then definitely opt for the goat’s milk chocolate pot. So sit back, relax and enjoy the rustic interiors and lip-smacking, authentic menu at Poco Tapas Bar.
If you want to avoid trendy health bars and are not interested in having a brunch with an exotic twist, head to Beagle where you will be greeted with a menu offering hearty brunch choices that we all know and love. Drool over their scrumptious ricotta pancakes or sink your teeth into a roast beef sandwich with all the trimmings, there is bound to be something for you. The thing that sets Beagle apart from the rest is its location; appointed within three historical railway arches, you can enjoy your delicious food while admiring the quirky brickwork interiors.
