It is nearly impossible to create one readable-sized list of the best brunches in London, so I’ve decided to divide it into areas. This is the first instalment – best brunches in Chelsea/Fulham. This area is, in my view, the best for brunch, but I might be biased…
I have mentioned Megan’s numerous times already on my blog, but it really is fab. The decor is so cute and cosy, and the food is equally impressive. I adore the shakshuka with halloumi, but the pizzas are equally as delicious. I strongly recommend you pay them a visit – you won’t be disappointed!

I think this is one of the lesser-known cafés in Chelsea, but it is such a good one to keep in mind if you’re keen for brunch but don’t want to pay a ridiculous price. Their pancakes are divine, as is their scrambled egg with avo on toast. Get the Green Zing juice if you want to feel your health instantly boosted! The staff are also lovely, and the downstairs is a really great place to chill and spend hours catching up with friends, without even realising time has passed!

Gail’s is a chain, so you can find it in areas outside of West London. However, I wanted to mention it because I think the quality of the food here is really impressive, and they offer both a menu to order from, and ready-made items in their fridge and around the café. Their pastries are incredible – I strongly recommend trying them. And get a cookie to go if you can!

Le Pain Quotidien
Another chain, but I again thought this one was worth a mention as their menu is massive; anything you could fancy, they’ll have it. Their scrambled eggs with smoked salmon is fab, as is their vegan breakfast bowl. They have a huge number of vegetarian and vegan options too, and their matcha latte is delicious – I love how the cups are huge and don’t have handles, it makes the drink so warming! If you don’t find yourself in West London then don’t panic, because you’re sure to find a Le Pain Quotidien near you.

This café is a bit of a gem as it is really reasonable, given its location in pricey West London. They serve brunch until 5pm (win! And not actually that easy to find), and the portions are really generous. The staff are super friendly too.

Chairs and Coffee
Another cute little coffee shop, but here they don’t allow laptops on the weekends, making the vibe much more chilled and social. Their sourdough toast with a choice of toppings is so good – you can totally customise it so you’ll definitely find something you’re into. Their chocolate and Guinness cake is also a winner, so pick this up if they haven’t run out of it yet!

A Wanted Man
A bit of a strange concept this one – they do waxing, brows and brunch all under one roof. It sounds bizarre and a bit gross, but it weirdly works. Their menu is really inventive, and it means you can meet the girls for brunch, while also ticking the monthly maintenance chores off your to-do list! Their Lebanese brunch catches my eye on their menu every time I walk past, but I haven’t yet tried it. See if you can get there before I do!

I hope this list has given you inspo for your next weekend brunch destination – if you know of any other great spots, let me know!
