Never mind what you did last summer, we know what you did LAST NIGHT. So shake off the cobwebs and cure yourself with everyone’s new favourite meal … BRUNCH. Be it boozy and bottomless or cool and casual, brunch is one of the fastest expanding food trends in the UK right now (we think it is to do with all those amazing Bloody Marys on offer!). With so much choice, we have narrowed down the list to the top 5 places in London that will have you back on the road to recovery.
Mac and Wild
It ain’t called wild for nothin’ – just look at that gargantuan Scooby snack! A feat of burger engineering packed with black pudding, bacon, fried hen’s egg, caramelised onions, tattie scone and lorne sausage all in a floury bap …. will leave you saying jeepers! To wash it down, Mac and Wild offer bottomless brunch cocktails from a Bloody Scotsman to a Bloody Mary. Don’t mind if we Scooby-dooby-doo!Book your wild brunch here ->
Buzzfeed says, “If you’re over traditional brunch, branch out at Bunga Bunga. Antipasti, pizza and bellinis. Wow”. Marie Claire has described it as “hilarious” and “practically the stuff of legend”. There’s so much chatter about Bunga brunch parties online we just had to see for ourselves. Every Saturday, this bar and pizzeria turns into party central with two hours of DIY bellini kits and a three course brunch complete with a stage set for the next Beyonce! Eat and sing your heart out at karaoke – it really is one of the most lively “brunch” parties in London.Brunch parties are the best kind, book here ->
How do you like your eggs in the morning? We like ours on a rooftop with a backdrop of the London skyline! Eat like a king at The Darwin Brasserie housed in the famous Sky Garden spanning three storeys showcasing exceptional views of the city. This Sunday, do brunch right and choose a main from sirloin steak to confit brisket, and did we mention the starters and desserts are unlimited from the buffet bar?

A favourite on the London scene, Oklava is a contemporary Turkish restaurant bringing the flavours of the middle east to brunch! If you’re feeling a bit worse for wear on Sunday, round up a group of friends and plan to share cheeses, olives, pastirma sausage with fried eggs, menemen and seasonal fruits! Don’t forget the drinks, you have the choice of Turkish Bloody Mary or why not opt for traditional Turkish coffees.
Thanks a "brunch" to these London hotspots for catering to our late morning desires. Where would we be without you! Hungry for more?
