A festival dedicated to brunch is coming to London this summer!
London’s only festival dedicated to brunch is returning for a second year!
Returning to The Old Truman Brewery, the festival will bring 10 Brunch Headliners all under the same roof. Completely unique to this year’s festivities, every headliner will create an exclusive dish for the event to be served alongside their menus.
Chefs have been set the challenge to create their take on the ultimate brunch dish that will be showcased exclusively at Brunch Fest, only available for the public to try over the course of these 2 days.
Brand-new names so far confirmed this year include the recently launched Avobar, London’s first all-avo restaurant in Covent Garden; Le Swine AKA “the master of the bacon butty” according to Time Out; Brother Marcus, the Balham brunch spot with al fresco dining.
There’s also The Farmer’s Mistress, the ‘naturally naughty’ comfort food eatery in Battersea; The Espresso Room bringing their brunch dishes from across London to Brick Lane; and Brickwood, the aussie inspired neighbourhood cafes located across South London.
These names will join returning brands Urban Pantry (winner of the UK’s best breakfast at 2019’s National Breakfast Awards) and Waffle On, named best waffles in London by Evening Standard.
Brand-new to this event this year will be the addition of Sweet Street – a whole room dedicated to the sweet side of brunch.
Those with a sweet tooth will be in heaven with confirmed brands such as A Pie Party selling sweet pie by the slice; Naked Dough, London’s first safe to eat, raw edible cookie dough cafe; DAPPA , a soft serve vegan ice cream brand; Butter Believe It, a London-based bakery selling cakes, brownies, cupcakes and doughnuts.
Plus Smith and Sinclair with their premium flavoured alcoholic cocktail confections; Barnes Pancake Co selling all sorts of pancake varieties; and Poptails by LAPP serving 100% natural gourmet cocktail-sorbets.
If that wasn’t enough, official sponsor, Longbottom & Co will be on hand with their dedicated Bloody Mary Bar and there’s a load of other drinks to keep you hydrated. Those looking for fizz will be thrilled to see not 1 but 2 prosecco bars from Bubble Bros. Plus, essential caffeine hits will be provided by speciality coffee roasters, Origin Coffee and Urban Baristas while luxury bottled cocktail company, buveur, will serve Espresso Martinis throughout the weekend.
A fruity option can be found at Capucana serving batidas mixed with their handcrafted Cachaça, Brazil’s national spirit, made from fermented sugar cane. Alongside their fruit batida, the team will of course be serving brunch-themed cocktails including a cereal batida.
