Top 5 Insta-worthy Brunch Spots in London

Let’s just say me and my sister are not the most easy-going kind of people. We don’t just stroll around until we find a place to eat that looks good enough. We PLAN. And since she moved to London a few months ago I’ve had the chance to be there more often too. We both are breakfast and brunch people so we decided to find the best places in London.We basically have 3 criteria: delicious food, beautiful interior, and good coffee. So every time I go to London to visit, we have a spread sheet to plan each day from morning till night. So believe me when I say these places are very well researched.

Here are the Top 5 Brunch spots we have found so far:

1. Farm Girl

I first heard about Farm Girl in a blog post from Tanya Burr (Read it here). Her pictures looked gorgeous, so we wanted to try it out for ourselves. We decided to sit outside, which wasn’t a problem despite the colder weather, as they have heating lamps.

I love their rose latte, but it’s not for everyone. I love flowery tastes in coffee (my favorite coffee ever is the lavender latte at Square Cafe in Pittsburgh) but my sister tried it as well and did not like it at all.

The pink tables are so cute, and the food absolutely delicious! We can never decide on what to get so me and my sister usually end up getting three meals to share.

You can’t make reservations, so make sure you arrive early!

2. Clerkenwell Grind

Grind has several locations, but the Clerkenwell one is my absolute favorite. This place ticks all the boxes: Perfect latte art, amazing food, gorgeous interior (hello marble table!).

I decided to go for the sweet potato cakes and they were so good, a little spicy, and a welcome change from the eggs benedict I usually get.

If you want to take pictures, try to get the round table in the corner by the window! definitely th best lighting.

3. No. 11 Pimlico Road

Brunch at No.11 Pimlico Road

No. 11 Pimlico Road is so cozy and has great food. Recently I’ve noticed that there are more and more places that are just named after the street they are in.

This place is so cute and cozy, it feels like a living room. I loved their tea too. It’s only a little walk away from Peggy Porschen Cakes, so if you are still a little hungry after breakfast you can pick up some cupcakes there! The eggs benedict come with lots of spinach here, yum!

4. The Ivy Towerbridge

All Ivy locations are amazing. My previous favorite was the Ivy Chelsea Garden (and don’t get me wrong I still love it, but their new location right by the Tower Bridge is breath taking. If you sit outside you have an amazing view of London’s skyline. This place is a little more fancy, but definitely worth it!

5. Chiltern Firehouse

This old firehouse is now home to a luxury hotel. The building is beautiful, and they offer delicious brunch, breakfast (and food in general). I love that you get all the pancake toppings and you can asseble them yourself!

Try to get a table by a window or sit outside, because it gets a little dark in there. I can’t wait to go back to try their french toast. Apperantly celebrities love this place too! So keep your eyes open when you are there 😉

If you’ve been to brunch in London, you probably know that it’s always a good idea to reserve a table!

    great shots and interesting reviews! gotta love cute places like these. Insta-worthy restaurants and cafes are mushrooming here in Jakarta, Indonesia as well. Some if not most are rather disappointing though, because the cuisine is not nearly as good as the decorations. It’s like they prioritize people coming and taking pictures over people enjoying the food and actually wanting to return for it.
