We love an eggcuse for an awful pun. What we love more is eggs! This Monday (10th October) sees the start of British Egg Week… No, we’re not yolkin’ it is a thing apparently. We at Secret London hatched an idea and have been on the (chicken) run for London’s best restaurants with eggs on the menu to help you celebrate Egg Week.
As the name would suggest, this Nottinghill Restaurant serves up some delicious eggy dishes including the eveeeeeeeeer so trendy avocado toast served with poached eggs – perfect for your #brunch instagram. Breakfast is served till 12 and after that Eggbreak also (among other things) serves burgers, chicken wings and house stuffed flatbreads. We just hope they don’t take their name too seriously and start breaking eggs all over the place.. hahahaa, we’ll see ourselves out.

2. Barge House
This gorgeous little riverside cafe/restaurant with it’s chic interior and open patio-style doors give the impression of dining alfresco and make Barge House the most idyllic brunch spot. Their signature brunch dish has got to be their breakfast bread bowls topped with melted cheese and a golden egg. Chose from classic English breakfast bowl, salmon and leeks or spicy chorizo and hot peppers.

3. Hoppers London
We’re definitely happy to see that Sri Lankan food has made it’s transition to edgy London cuisine. This delicious family style Sri Lankan and Tamil influenced restaurant specialises in hoppers, dosas and roti. We recommend (you guessed it) the egg hopper which is a savoury, bowl shaped pancake with a tasty gooey egg in the middle.

This health food restaurant specialises in sushi, nutritious curries and juices but what really eggcites us is their scrambled eggs. Abokado offers three eggs scrambled on their own or topped with your choice of avocado, bacon, smoked salmon or roasted tomatoes.
There’s one dish all egg lovers need to try at Caravan and that’s the baked eggs! Eggs baked with tomato pepper ragout, Greek yoghurt and served with sour dough toast this dish is as delectable as it is pretty. With locations at Kings Cross, Exmouth Market and a new Bankside restaurant coming soon you really have no eggcuse to eggnore this yolky delight. You can never make too many egg puns.
6. Bad Egg
Eggs are the star at this hip casual eatery. We recommend the njuda, cheese and fried egg fries for a spicy, melty, moreish side dish. Pair it with an order of scrambled egg breakfast tacos or cheeseburger hash. And on weekends why don’t you indulge in a bottomless brunch with your choice of three selected food items with unlimited breakfast cocktails for £35?! ‘Cos what could be better than eating eggs while getting pissed?

With years of experience as pop-ups and street food market stalls Yolk definitely knows a thing or two about what makes a good egg. They started with one mission: to create the perfect eggs Benedict and from there they took off… Try one of their poached egg pots served until 10:30am choosing between Benedict, Florantine, Royale and many more.
8. The Good Egg
Boasting house smoked meats and seasonally changing menus, The Good Egg is understandably a popular brunch stop. Offering breakfast burritos stuffed with eggs, chorizo, potatoes, cheese and hot sauce or Shakshuka, (a dish of baked eggs with peppers in a tomato sauce), as just a few choices on the menu you’ll definitely find something to satisfy your yolky cravings.
