Don’t leave the kids at home — include them! Weekend brunch doesn’t have to be stressful... We’ve rounded up the top spots to bring the tots.
2 Sir Simon Milton Square, London SW1E 5DJ
Inspired by the lauded Italian restaurants of NYC, Hai Cenato is spacious and lively. There are plenty of pizzas to please everyone, alongside some sophisticated offerings from the grill. Inventive — and strong — signature cocktails will calm nerves should one of the little ones have a meltdown.
Adam Handling Chelsea
75 Sloane St, London SW1X 9SG
Featuring a modern British menu, Adam Handling Chelsea is a local favourite. The extensive breakfast menu offers all the classics, done right, and served with a continental selection of breads, meats, cheeses, cereals, fruits, and yoghurts. Delicious snacks (try the cheese doughnuts) and a children’s menu means there’s always something for everyone.
The Serpentine Gallery, West Carriage Drive, Hyde Park, London W2 2AR
Ideally located in the center of Hyde Park, Chucs Serpentine is a more casual offering from the West London chain — but it’s just as delicious as its fancier siblings. An easy menu features brunch classics alongside a few pizzas and some finger foods; enjoy a sampling before spending the afternoon strolling with the children through one of London’s most beautiful parks.
27 Cale Street, London SW3 3QP
A casual Chelsea go-to, the comprehensive brunch menu at Tom’s Kitchen’s features classics with a twist and excellent roasts. The vegetarian breakfast board is healthy and great for sharing; the children will adore the fluffy French Toast. The relaxed environment can comfortably accommodate the whole family and feels cosy and homely.
40-41 Rathbone Pl, London W1T 1HX
A beautiful and festive atmosphere is one of the best parts of Circolo Popolare. The delicious brunch menu features classics with an Italian twist — we love the fluffy ricotta pancakes. Vegan options mean there’s something for everyone, and spectacular desserts mean the children’s sweet tooths are satisfied.
4-6 Russell Street, London WC2B 5HZ
London’s iteration of the New York-stalwart serves French bistro classics and is an excellent option for a family brunch. Brunch officially starts at 10am, but they are open from 9am should you have a house of early-risers. The savoury menu, with perfectly crafted egg dishes, appeals to adults while the children will enjoy the perfect pastries — try the Brioche Feuilletée with Nutella.
27 Poultry, London EC2R 8AJ
Weekend brunch at The Ned guarantees there’s something for everyone, with ten restaurants. Simplify things and arrive at noon on Sunday for their massive Sunday Feast, served across all their restaurants, which includes everything you—and the children—could dream of. Spend time relaxing and eating at your leisure while the children play in the expansive space, and make sure to indulge in the custom Bloody Mary cart.
20 Upper Ground, London SE1 9PDLocated on the Thames, the view is definitely one of the draws of this British restaurant. While the children enjoy watching the passing boats, partake in bottomless Mimosas. The little ones can order easy classics such as Macaroni and Cheese from the Kid’s Menu—plus, they eat free between 12-4pm every weekend—as you enjoy a selection of ridiculously fresh seafood.
Aldwych, Canary Wharf, Shochu Lounge Soho locations
With three of their London locations offering brunch, Roka is always convenient. A comfortable, loungey environment allows for relaxed dining, and their mainly sharing-style Japanese brunch enables children to graze and try many different things. The set menu includes red wine, white wine, and prosecco during the meal.
