Quirky Brunches in London

When brunch first started being a thing, it was only the richer-than-rich with nothing better to do with their time who did it. But years later, we’ve finally seen the light and not only can anyone unironically feast on an avocado rye bread or a ganache in the middle of the afternoon, but now we can do so much more with that time with some spectacular alternative brunches. So whether you want drag queens with your waffles, some 90s throwback tunes wiping away the hangover or a cheeky game of bingo, here’s all the best quirky brunches in London for your enjoyment.
