Set your alarm for London Brunch Fest - a festival devoted to all things brunch-related


Updated 27/8/18 with full menu details

Whatever your brunch preference, be it bottomless and boozy or smoothie-bowl-themed, there's no denying that London is home to some seriously good, tremendously varied breakfasts. In fact, the biggest problem is finding the energy to get out of bed and go and try them all.

Now, the good news is you'll be able to sample a big range of brunches all in one go at London's first brunch festival, hosted at the Old Truman Brewery. There'll be lots to try, including plenty from vendors, cocktails, coffees, kombuchas and sweet pastries - so maybe skip dinner the night before.

That's all on top of the many talks, discussions and activities like a Bloody Mary workshop from the founder of The Picklehouse, and 'RIP Clean Eating: The Alternative Brunch Wellness Plan'.

Each of the restaurants will have a special festival menu for the event, and one signature dish where they'll be attempting to one-up each other to take home the title of 'Dish of the Festival'.
