This gorgeous Covent Garden brunch spot is the perfect place to fill up before popping down the road to catch a West End matinee. Opt for the 'Chef Selection' menu and receive six Peruvian dishes to share - think beef saltadito, sea bream ceviche and churros dipped in dulce de leche.

How a boat that. Paddington based Dacie & May Green is a must-visit for any budding Instagrammers out there - with a cosy ground floor deck and sunny rooftop terrace, this waterborne eatery is sure to elevate your brunching game.

Six Storeys on Soho

A central Soho townhouse known for its elegant interiors and velvet furnishings, Six Storeys transforms into a lively late-night venue as dusk falls. However they happen to know a thing or two about brunch too - their three-course bottomless menu includes fancy kebabs, mounds of Eton mess and unlimited espresso martinis.

If you're on the hunt for a beautiful brunch, Megan's will not disappoint. Regularly frequented by the well-heeled residents of West London (including a few familiar faces from Made in Chelsea), this Mediterranean-style eatery is known for its signature dishes including their moreish Turkish cheese fondue and baked shakshouka.
