Getting a table at some of London’s most popular spots these days can be harder than getting a seat on your morning commute. We, however, have found the answer to your woes – skip evening meals and head to some of our favourite places for Brunch instead…
NEW TOM’S RESTAURANT
Located in the achingly trendy Westbourne Grove, this really is the place to see and be seen on the weekends. Opt for the Bloody Mary’s which seriously pack a punch and then choose from British favourites such as Egg’s Benedict or a New York staple bagel and smocked salmon. Be warned however though as this place is incredibly popular and you can’t usually book a table, but it’s definitely worth trying your luck this weekend.

Drawing influence from all corners of the world, this is one well travelled menu. Choose from mouth wateringly delicious Orange scented pancakes with blueberries and vanilla butter or Spiced aubergine, gem leaf, goats curd and butternut squash. Whatever you have a taste for, Caravan will have something to satisfy you – or simply introduce you to something you’d never have dreamt of trying before. They’ve even transformed the basement into a working coffee roastery.

For something a little more glamorous head to Convent Garden this weekend and walk on into Balthazar for a serious Full English. The bread is an absolute must, from master baker Jon Rolfe. Balthazar London perfectly mimics its New York contemporary, with red awnings, leather seats and the beautiful antique mirrored walls.
