Best for Brunch

Best for Brunch

Brunch is a wondrous meal. A magical cross of opposites, breakfast and lunch, sweet and savoury, that basically justifies making a meal out of dessert and getting quite squiffy before midday. What’s not to love? That said, there is nothing more disappointing then a bad brunch. This is something you have to get out of bed on the weekend for for pete’s sake!  Luckily, these bad boys are well worth a bit of rise and shine.

    This doesn’t sound very “brunchy!” (and in fact does not do breakfast)

    A meat-lover’s paradise in central Spitalfields, heralded as one of the best steak joints in London.

      Hi Daniel,

      You’re right. They used to do the Hawksmoor breakfast at Spitalfields on weekends, but no more. If you have a free weekday breakfast it’s well-worth checking out at the Guildhall branch though. It’s a total meat odyssey.


  • Josh


    Excellent for breakfast/brunch. Similar to the Wolseley


    • admin


      Josh, good shout, we agree with you on the Delauney. Don’t worry, we should have a review up shortly.
