We all know Shoreditch is bursting with all kinds of amazing brunch spots. Clerkenwell, Southbank and Chelsea are also huge poached egg paradises; but the City is slowly working its way into this part of the foodie scene, too.
There’s still a long way to go, but a handful of budding dining destinations are breathing even more life into the area, one eggs Benedict at a time. Here are four of the City of London’s best brunches.
These guys started out as humble coffee roasters, making London a much better place for caffeine lovers. They then expanded into food and cocktails around the area before opening up their swish restaurant and bar at the Bloomberg Arcade. Here, they serve incredible coffee alongside great classic brunch dishes. There’s no messing about with theatrics or overly quirky ingredients. Instead, they do Moorish buttermilk pancakes, a mighty impressive full English, and plenty of other brunch time favourites. A trip to Caravan City will never disappoint.

This City seafood spot offers up a super special fishy weekend brunch menu, aptly named ‘brunch off the boat’. For this special experience, diners start off at their very own oyster and Bloody Mary station – yes, they have an entire section dedicated to the two. Guests then move on to starters and main courses, made from fresh and locally sourced seafood that can also be enjoyed with bottomless Prosecco or Moët and Chandon. Because, why not?

The Moorish menu at Bad Egg is designed to be a bit messy and altogether mouthwateringly good every day of the week. We’re obsessed with their cheese-packed burgers and homemade tacos, but the pulled pork, kimchi and beans on toast is also a wonderful treat. They were also one of the first to bring bottomless brunches to the City and are known for turning Saturdays into all-day parties. Refreshingly unpretentious and one of the City of London’s best brunches.

Gordon Ramsay himself may be slightly terrifying, but his City restaurant is one of the best places to grab a classy bottomless brunch. Choose an egg dish or a main as well as a dessert before downing as many glasses of Prosecco as you can possibly can – testing the waiters’ speed and efficiency in the process. We also love their weekend beef Wellington special for a slightly alternative brunch experience. This bougie British speciality is done to perfection at Bread Street Kitchen and can be complimented by delicious wine pairings.
