As many of London’s Oxford and Regent Street shops don’t open until after 10am, you don’t need any excuse to fill in the time before shopping with a good brunch. Here are the best options to treat yourself.

1. Ethos

Restaurant, European, Asian, Middle Eastern, Vegetarian, Japanese

If you’re after a meat-free brunch, Ethos has lots to offer. Food is fresh and tasty in this quirky cafe with tree trunks ‘growing’ out of the floor. The breakfast menu is available weekdays from 8am until 11am, and includes a good selection of hot and cold options. Choose from scrambled eggs with avocado, sweet potato and onion crackling, or pancakes with three different types of fruity toppings. You’ll also find granola pots and banana bread, plus lots of gluten-free dishes. Get there early to make sure you get a table.

2. The Cycle Club Café

Cafe, British

Do you need an incentive to get back on your bike? A visit to cool cycle-outfitters Rapha Cycle Club London near Piccadilly Circus might be just the thing to urge you on your way. While you’re there, make sure you take a pit-stop at The Cycle Club Café for their hearty breakfasts designed to fuel and replenish cyclists. The pre-ride menu is small but perfectly formed, offering pancakes, yoghurt, eggs, toast and porridge. Breakfast is served from 8am to 11am seven days a week. For your caffeine hit, choose a cup of Workshop coffee or the featured guest coffee.


Restaurant, Mediterranean

NOPI is the brainchild of Israeli-British chef Yotam Ottolenghi
NOPI is part of the much-loved Middle Eastern restaurant group, Ottolenghi. There are two dining options: a relaxed communal downstairs area overlooking the NOPI kitchen, or the more formal ground floor restaurant. While the breakfast menu is petite, alongside sourdough toast, poached eggs and fruit salad there are some more unusual items. Depending on the season, you could find courgette bake, black rice with coconut milk or beef brisket hash. If you need a little extra boost in the morning, Bloody Marys and Prosecco are available to order from 10am.

4. Berners Tavern

For an upmarket start to your day, look no further than Berners Tavern. Awarded the GQ Best Restaurant Interior 2015 and AA Restaurant Of The Year 2014, Berners Tavern is under the direction of Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton. Breakfast is available from 7am to 10.30am all week. Treat yourself to Berners Tavern granola with Scottish raspberries or for something more filling, there’s the Full English. If eggs are your thing there are lots of options, from Eggs Royale to Lincolnshire Poacher cheese and smoked ham omelette, all using free-range Clarence Court eggs.

5. Dishoom – Carnaby

Restaurant, Indian

The Kingly Street branch of Dishoom is the latest of these popular Bombay-inspired restaurants. Breakfast is available all week and is a good choice if you like spice. Bacon lovers will find it hard to resist Dishoom’s famous bacon naan roll, filled with Ginger Pig’s smoked streaky bacon and garnished with cream cheese, chilli tomato jam and fresh herbs. Less meaty options include the Bombay omelette, kejriwal (two fried eggs on chilli cheese toast) and ‘never-ending’ house porridge. To truly capture the Bombay spirit, sip a cup of house chai tea on the side.
