There’s stiff competition for the title of best brunch in Notting Hill. This chic neighbourhood is packed with breakfast and brunch spots that make for the perfect leisurely meal.
Looking for Notting Hill’s must-try breakfast brunch places? We’ve got you covered.
Best Breakfasts and Brunches in Notting Hill
Chic boutique hotel The Laslett is one of our favourite places to bed down in Notting Hill, but we’ll let you in on a little secret… you can enjoy their excellent breakfasts even if you aren’t staying in the hotel.
The breakfast menu is brimming with classic favourites – like Smoked Salmon on sourdough, eggs any style, buttery-flaked pastries that come with homemade jam – it’s all delightful.
Wash it all down with a range of teas and coffees – or perhaps a Bloody Mary or Champagne cocktail if you’re feeling celebratory.
Breakfast and brunch at The Laslett is available from 7:30 AM to 11 AM on weekdays and on weekends from 7:30 AM until 2:30 PM.
The cafe’s signature Aussie cuisine pairs fresh flavours and nutritious superfoods for a wholesome start to the day. Think Açai bowls, turkish eggs and avo on toast (of course). Although they are on the pricey side, the portions are generous.
It wouldn’t be one of the best breakfasts in Notting Hill without a wide selection of drinks. There’s no alcohol on the menu, but you can get a variety of delicious coffee, lattes, and teas.
After something a bit different? Try the Liquid Gold tea; it has turmeric, ginger root, honey, black pepper, and lime.
Pretty unsurprisingly given its name, Eggslut is all about eggs. If you can think of it and it uses eggs as the main ingredient, they probably have it.
Opt for classic eggs or try eggs with bacon, cheese, sausage, portobello, and more. Ingredients are sourced from British farmers and there’s a focus on only using the freshest and best-quality produce in the menu.
Not sure what to go for? Try the house specialty – coddled eggs sat atop a potato puree, topped with grey salt and chives and served with slices of baguette.
It also has the significant upside of being one of the more affordable breakfasts in Notting Hill.
Of all the independent brunch spots in Notting Hill, Golborne Deli stands out as a long-time local favourite.
The deli is known for its tantalisingly good range of produce, so it’s quite fitting that they put on one heck of a breakfast.
This is a menu that celebrates the best of Mediterranean cuisine – the breakfast menu features an extensive choice of filled ciabattas like the enticing Tricolore – a tasty mix of avocado, buffalo Mozzarella and tomato with basil pesto.
The breakfast and brunch menu is available all day – perfect for those days when you want an indulgent lie in followed by a late brunch.
Did we mention that the coffee is great too?
Lowry & Baker
We couldn’t write a guide to the best Notting Hill brunches and not feature Lowry & Baker – a self-described breakfast and brunch restaurant.
You can’t help but be charmed by Lowry & Baker, not least because of their totally banging all day brunch menu.
Offering the kind of food it’s worth crossing town for, they pride themselves on the fact that they make most of their ingredients in the cafe.
Homemade granola? Naturally. Homemade brioche topped with eggs or berries and ricotta? Coming right up. There’s a reason that people find themselves returning to Lowry & Baker again and again.
Granger & Co.
You’ll find Bill Granger’s Aussie Granger & Co.s dotted all over London but the Notting Hill outpost is particularly good.
Serving breakfast until 12pm, Granger & Co is a firm favourite among the locals, thanks to their fresh breakfast items that are designed to start your day off the right way.
There are plenty of vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as meaty options – it’s a bit of a cliche to say there’s something for everyone – but it really is true in this case.
Beloved by Notting Hill’s fashionable set, 202’s extensive breakfast menu covers all the bases – from the more traditional Full English and Kedgeree with Poached Egg to contemporary faves like Buttermilk Pancakes with crème fraiche and blueberry compote.
If we had to pick one winner though, it would be their French Toast – buttery brioche topped with your choice of caramelised banana or crispy bacon and maple syrup. It’s every bit as good as it sounds.
Nab one of the outdoors tables for some of the best people-spotting opps in Notting Hill, or cosy up in the rustic-chic interior – the service is just as good either way.
Ottolenghi is one of the long-standing darlings of London’s culinary scene. For good reason – his Middle Eastern-inspired menus are full of gastronomic hits you’re never quite able to replicate at home with the same success.
You can get the whole menu to take away, but if you want to eat in, you’ll need to be quick: there are only ten seats inside the cafe. Add to that some of the best baked goods in Notting Hill it’s safe to say that the competition for those seats is fierce.
Delve into the chocolate and hazelnut brownie, or take a bite of the polenta cake with pistachio. Whatever you opt for, you won’t be disappointed.
Bluebelles of Portobello
Located right on Notting Hill’s famous Portobello Road, Bluebelles of Portobello is a wonderful coffee shop that also happens to do a pretty wonderful breakfast.
The menu ranges from bakery items, egg pots, cereal pots, or a French toast croissant with fresh berries (yum), and there are vegan options and gluten-free options available too.
If you want the full local experience, choose to sit outdoors on a sunny day – so very Notting Hill.
The Tin Shed
The Tin Shed is another Notting Hill brunch spot that is popular with the locals. They are open every day for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, and you can enjoy bakery treats, vegan dishes, eggs, or a full English breakfast.
Enjoy a leisurely morning as you indulge in their homemade meals – it’s the perfect place for an authentic Notting Hill brunch experience.
Chucs Westbourne Grove
Chucs is a neighbourhood gem – in the summer, there’s no better place for a breakfast in Notting Hill than on their manicured garden terrace.
These guys go hard on the breakfast front – the extensive menu is filled with tantalising options including Eggs Florentine and Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough. On the healthier side, you can also opt for Chia Bowls and House Granola with Fresh Strawberries and Yoghurt.
Daylesford Organic is such a household name that it might come as a surprise that they have a few select London outposts – including this one in Notting Hill.
They are open every day, with indoor and outdoor seating. Their food is organic from their own organic farms, and they hold themselves to high environmental standards.
When you’re finished eating, this is the place to stock up on homemade breads, artisan cheeses, fresh fruits and vegetables grown in their own garden or meat from their farm in the Cotswolds to bring home.
You can trust the people behind Soho House to get brunch right… and they do.
The Electric Diner serves a French-American menu, with a lot of delicious dishes to choose from. Where a lot of Notting Hill’s breakfast spots double down on healthy dishes, Electric Diner isn’t afraid to throw in a few indulgent dishes too. Case in point? The Philly Chilli Cheese Dog – a hearty dish laden with flavourful chilli. Same for the Honey-Fried Chicken, which manages to be simultaneously crispy and moist.
Go hungry, you won’t regret it.
