Delicious food, stunning views and Paradise Pods, Coppa Club at Tower Bridge is the perfect spot for any occassion! Whether it be breakfast/brunch, drinks or dinner, this venue caters to all events. With its famous Paradise Pods (igloos), the Tower Bridge branch overlooks the river Thames and is the perfect outdoor eating spot for those sunny, summer days!

You can pre-book tables/Paradise Pods on their website, but the latter do fill up quite quickly, so try to book as far in advance as you can! The restaurant also has three other locations in St. Paul’sSonning-on-Thames and Henley-on-Thames. I had lunch at the Tower Bridge location and the food was delicious and not overpriced.

Eggbreak & Notting Hill

 

IMG_7558

A 3 minute walk from Notting Hill station, Eggbreak is a small egg-focused café on the quiet street of Uxbridge St. I had been recommended this place about two months ago by my boss in work and have been dying to try it ever since!

The food was absolutely delicious and very reasonable. Given that we went early in the morning and during the time of Ramadan, there was no queue, but on a normal weekend expect to queue for at least 20-30 minutes.

The famous Portobello Road is only a 12-15 minute walk from Eggbreak if you fancy heading down for some vintage shopping. At the heart of Notting Hill, this road is home to the world’s largest antiques market, with everything from fashion/clothing, food, bric–a-brac and antiques. It is definitely worth the visit!

One particular Vintage shop I would recommend is Goldsmith Vintage. It is also right opposite Electric Diner which is also great for brunch and Electric Cinema which is a luxury, boutique cinema that serves food and wine – perfect for a rainy day.

 

Granger & Co

IMG_6911

Created by the Australia food writer and restauranteur Bill Granger, Granger and Co. is one of my favourite brunch spots in London! Located in Clerkenwell, Notting Hill, King’s Cross and Chelsea (my favourite) the menu doesn’t disappoint with its fresh, healthy ingredients and modern twists on classic dishes. The food is simply delicious!

I love the Chelsea branch – it is right off Sloane Square and is absolutely glorious on a sunny day! Queuing is unfortunately a given at this place, due to its popularity, but it is definitely worth the wait!

If you have a sweet tooth, and are ever in London, then L’ETO is the place for you! With cafes across six locations in London, and three cafes internationally, L’ETO is constantly continuing to grow. I have visited their branch on the King’s Road several times, and am still continuing to go back. Just a 10 minute walk from Sloane Square tube station, this branch is located in the salubrious and stunning area of Chelsea. The Saatchi Gallery (free entry) and Duke of York square are also just down the road, and shopping is right on your doorstep.

I have always had a soft spot for cake, and when you walk into the L’ETO cafes, you are immediately hit with the most beautiful spread of cakes, cupcakes, tarts and brownies, that are simply irresistible However, it doesn’t end there. L’ETO also have the most delicious array of salads and savoury dishes, from super healthy Buckwheat & Mushroom fritters and Honey Roasted Pumpkin & Kale, to French Toast and Strawberry & Banana Pancakes. They have Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner menus, whilst also offering a catering service and a personalised cake service.

Mud

Located in the heart of Tooting, Mud is the perfect brunch hideaway for those living in South West London. Small in size, the café does not take bookings, but is definitely worth the wait. Foodwise, the main focus is on coffee and brunch, with the brunch menu being served until 3pm every day.

On this particular occasion, I had the Corn Fritter Stack (along with all my other friends who were in attendance) and they were simply divine! Stacked one on top of another, with smashed avocado, a poached egg and the option of streaky bacon, this dish could do no wrong!

Additional Info:
Service: From start to finish, the Mud staff were nothing but accommodating, helpful and friendly. Although Mud does not take bookings, the staff did not keep us waiting too long, and did their very best to ensure we got a table as soon as possible. Once seated, ordering was quick and easy, and the waiting time for food was no longer than 20 minutes.
Pricing: Mud’s prices are standard for a brunch menu, with main courses averaging at around £8, sides £3.50 and drinks anywhere from £2-£5 depending on whether it is a coffee or freshly prepared juice.
