What could possibly be better than brunch? Brunch when you’re high…
…up. High up. Or by a river. Actually, pretty much anywhere in eyeshot of nice pretty Londony things. Here’s a few for your books:
Bōkan offers a truly unique brunch experience: think veal and pork terrine starters and duck breast with loquat mains. Not only is there great grub, but you can also enjoy bottomless prosecco and 360° views of the city from their roof terrace.
You’ll find Bōkan at 40 Marsh Wall, Isle of Dogs, near Canary Wharf, E14 9TP
Perkin Reveller has a prime location on the north side of Tower Bridge, right by the Tower of London. Their weekend brunch menu is reasonably priced (£4.50-£8.50 per dish) and boasts a bunch of winning classics, including eggs benedict and smashed avo on toast. Their selection of topped sourdough toast is the nuts (some of them literally are nuts), and even their porridge is a strong contender.
