London isn’t short of places to go for a brilliant brunch but finding the best of the new brunch menus can be a challenge. From a bottomless sushi to stunning Mediterranean platters, we’ve got it covered in our roundup of the top five best new brunch menus to try in London this month.
What? Bottomless modern Japanese food with an Aussie twist
More details: Pacific’s new Sunday brunch menu is a sushi lover’s dream. Ten new dishes, including creations like Sushi donuts and Sashimi tacos, encapsulate the restaurant’s Japanese offering with a fresh Aussie twist, and there’s also a great selection of warm plates like Chicken karage and, in a nod to Executive Chef Shaun Presland’s Aussie roots, miniature burgers with melted mozzarella centres. The food is unlimited but save room for one of Pacific’s Sunday Soothers; a Pacific Mary or a glass of Aussie Jumpin’ Juice wine will go down a treat.
How much? £30pp for unlimited food.
Blueprint Cafe, Shad Thames
What? A three-course Great British brunch with stunning Tower Bridge views
More details: Boasting what is arguably one of the best views of Tower Bridge, the new Sunday brunch menu at Blueprint Café is a feast for the eyes, too. You can opt for two or three courses featuring brunch staples like Avocado on toast as well as sweet and savoury French toasts – the savoury comes with brioche, gruyere, ham and poached eggs, while the sweet option is soaked in fig leaf scented custard and topped with crushed pear.
