You Had Me at Brunch
Brunch – our favourite meal here at Ivy. The weekend just doesn’t seem complete without it. Whether you’re after a full English Breakfast, scrumptious banana maple pancakes or something more adventurous, London most certainly has the place for you.
Ffiona's in Kensington offers all the of the of the classic brunch dishes to start your day off right. Serving up arguably one the best brunches in London you’ll be treated to scrambled eggs with oak salmon, black pudding and Bloody Mary's among the many other scrumptious dishes on offer. Located near to some some of London’s greatest museums why not make a day out of it. Or if you feel you’re needing to walk off that big brunch a stroll in nearby Hyde Park could be just the ticket.

If you’re looking for a taste of Down Under then head no further than to Darcie Green – a canal boat turned restaurant ideally located right next to Paddington station. If you’re feeling like a taste of home, or wanting to see how they do brunch over on the other side of the world then head on down for a delicious feast including treats like some delicious smashed avocado or banana bread sandwiches. You can even pop on over to the sister boat, May, for a quick history lesson of Paddington.

For a healthy twist on the traditional brunch, why not try Farm Girl Cafe in Notting Hill. Getting there early to secure a spot is a must but it’s worth it for a chance to sample their delicious organic menu. You won’t be able to resist snapping a few pics of their delectable dishes and their unique interior. Try their signature smoked coconut bacon, which isn’t really bacon at all but still satisfies those bacon cravings. A brunch here will have you feeling healthy and invigorated, leaving you to explore the wonderful Notting Hill area.
