London’s Newest Brunches
Brunch: savoury or/and sweet dishes served all day with a couple of cheeky cocktails. What’s not to like?
Since Londoners are always in search of the next best brunch, we’ve selected a few just for you. Have a great weekend.
Mac & Wild Wild’s Brunch
Ever wondered what a Scottish brunch might be like? Both sites of Mac & Wild, in Fitzrovia and Devonshire Square, are offering a brand new Spring brunch menu. So what’s on the menu?
Toasted Candied Bacon Sandwich with béchamel sauce and spiced bone marrow gravy (£7.5), Smoked Haddock Potato Pancakes with caramelised mustard onions and poached hen’s egg (£8) and last but not least the Scottish breakfast (£12): a Scottish version of the well-known English breakfast.
And it’s all as delicious as it sounds. All their produce comes from Scotland (you can almost taste the Highlands) and they don’t mess around with their whiskies either. Their bottomless brunch (for £18) is served alongside a bloody Scotsman (a bloody Mary with the brown liquor).
WOLF’s Italian bottomless brunch
Not only will WOLF in Stoke Newington very soon start serving their new brunch menu – but it is also created by new Head Chef Karla Knowles who previously worked at the lovely Petersham Nurseries. Available on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 4pm, the menu includes sweet dishes like the Polenta Pancakes with persimmon jam & mascarpone as well as cheesy plates like the Baked Gorgonzola with chargrilled focaccia, rhubarb chutney & lemon. Those craving their eggs in the morning will also be pleased as a whole egg section will be featured, with dishes ranging from Fennel Sausage with deep fried egg, flat gnocchi & caramelised Tropea onions to Morcilla (blood sausage) with pancetta, blistered Datterino tomatoes, poached eggs & focaccia bread. Cocktails and bottomless options will naturalmente also be on the menu.
Just in: WOLF is launching WOLF II in the City which will also serve delicious breakfast/brunch dishes from Monday to Friday like the Wild boar waffle filled with tender wild boar & gooey fontina cheese, served with their special ‘Ammazza’ sauce.

A group of mates got together to serve fresh and seasonal dishes in Balham. Their brunch menu sounds like a family reunion, with the Brother Special (scrambled eggs, chard, asparagus & beetroot cured salmon on toast for £9.8), the Step Sister (sweet potato, courgette and feta fritters, avocado and spinach, kale, turmeric yogurt & poached egg for £9.5) or even the Sugar Daddy (cinnamon french toast brioche, mixed berry & rhubarb compote, vanilla infused Greek yogurt for £8.5).
But we’ve got to admit that it’s the In-Law that sound the best (for once): salt beef, Brother Marcus rainbow slaw and fried egg in a bagel (£9.5)
