Going for brunch is probably one of my favourite things to do over the weekend. Whether it’s to go and relax with my hubster, cure a hangover or catch up with friends. Below are three of my favourites I like, each for a very different reason.
1. Raoul’s (105 – 107 Talbot Road, London W11 2AT) is most definitely my top choice. I also tend to order the same things each time I go there. I know what I like, right? That would be the potato cakes with poached egg, acai smoothie and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup, normally to share, of course. Unpretentious, relatively easy to get a table at, friendly service and consistently good food.
2. Cépages (69 Westbourne Park Rd, London W2 5QH) is a relatively new spot in the area. It has a lovely Frenchy atmosphere, excellent music and most amazing wines. Apart from brunch menu, you could also branch out to explore their tapas options that also include oysters. Their eggs royal and eggs benedict are definitely top notch and perfectly filling. It will be very difficult though not to try any of their wines, so be prepared to drink some.
3. Granger and Co (175 Westbourne Grove, London W11 2SB) is a very trendy place on Westbourne Grove. You will recognise it by a long queue outside. If there wasn’t such a queue outside, I would go more often to have their sweetcorn fritters and I would probably share their ricotta hotcakes. If you dislike waiting in the line, either go early or after 2pm.
So then, what are your favourite spots or have you been to any of the above?
