Brunch has come on a long way since its invention as a hangover cure in 1930s New York. The Insta-staple is easily the nation’s favourite meal of the week, bridging the gap between breakfast and lunch and serving up Basic Bitch favourites from avocado on toast to Eggs Benedict (not to mention bottomless Prosecco and Mimosas). Whether you’re looking for the newest take on a brunch classic (soft-shell crab Eggs Benny, anyone?) or the most Instagrammable latte (Palm Vaults, we’re looking at you) these are the restaurants you’ll find the Grazia team in come 1pm every Saturday or Sunday…

The Table

When you're next looking for a brunch venue for pre or post-visiting the Tate Modern, make sure you head to The Table. We hate going to restaurants that are quiet – whether that's due to lack of clientele or lack of music – but The Table is loud, buzzy and just busy enough, with the open kitchen and sharing tables adding to the atmosphere. The menu comprises something for every palette – whether you're a sweet tooth who wants buttermilk waffles doused in chocolate sauce and ice cream, or a traditional egg benedict fan, or starving and in need of a full English, they've got it. Big hitters include the Stack, which perilously balances ham hock and chorizo baked beans, poached eggs and hollandaise on a bagel, as well as the breakfast bruschetta, which includes avocado, bacon and poached eggs (and comes highly recommended). Oh, and they do burgers and salads too, just in case you're not really the classic brunch fan (seriously,why are you here?). There's cocktails too, of course, and a great selection at that – try the pineapple express for a fun twist on the mimosa.
