Brunch is getting a makeover. Now that summer is finally here – albeit with a few rain showers thrown in for good measure – we’re almost certain you’ll be on the search for the best outdoor brunch spots in the city. Luckily for us Londoners, the city has a plethora of options. 

From boozy brunches to avocado toast with riverside views, these are the best outdoor brunch finds to head to this summer. 

Top Outdoor Brunch Spots We Love In London

The Good Egg

The favourite of so many, The Good Egg has become renowned for its eggy content. As you’d expect, most of their dishes come served with a healthy helping of eggs. Expect brunch dishes such as salt beef reubens stacked with smoked cheddar, garlic kraut, Russian dressing and pickles; fish hash with potatoes, harissa mayo and aleppo fried egg; and babka French toast steeped in custard and seasonal fruit.

Their Soho branch is where to head for outdoor brunching though, home to a heated, covered courtyard, perfect for all of the British weather this summer throws at us.

For those partial to minimalist interiors, head to No 197 Chiswick Fire Station for interior inspo and delicious brunching options. And their muted white and wooden colour palette seeps into their walled garden, hidden at the back of the restaurant. In the summertime it becomes flooded with sunlight and provides the perfect backdrop to any brunch occasion.
