Best Breakfasts & Brunches in Stoke Newington 

The Yellow Warbler

Great coffee and even better food, The Yellow Warbler is a wonderful spot for your breakfast needs. The first thing we love about this spot is that they offer you whipped up lattes (insanely good dollops of whipped cream on top of your milky coffees or frappes!). 

The homemade soups are delicious and the sandwiches are made with so much love, you won’t be able to resist them. For pastries, toasties, coffees or soups – this is your place. 

We also highly recommend the sausage rolls baked with mustard into the pastry. Each bite is a masterpiece. 

Head to The Yellow Warbler for quality coffee, locally sourced pastries and very friendly staff. 

Petit Coin 

For the best brunch in Stoke Newington, head to Petit Coin. This is somewhat an institution on Stoke Newington Church Street, a famous place for independent shops and a warm community. 

The way the pastries are displayed is potentially the cutest thing we’ve ever seen and it’s hard to get enough of it. It’s even better when you taste them! The Turkish pastries are to die for, so definitely try those. 

There are plenty of vegan bites to eat and a delicious tea and coffee selection. It’s known to be one of the friendliest cafes in Stoke Newington and we can certainly see why. 

The Muddy Puddle 

A unique café in Stoke Newington that is laptop-friendly and full of good vibes. It’s a little slice of relaxing heaven right in the centre of Stoke Newington and a great place if you’re freelance and have some work to finish up. 

They serve wonderful vegan food that is loved even by the non-vegan eaters. We recommend going for the Vegan Full English, it’s the most comforting breakfast we’ve had in a while and when the sun shines through the window – there’s, quite frankly, nothing like it. 

Drury Coffee Shop 

There are a few Drury coffee shops scattered about town but the one in Stoke Newington is by far our favourite. 

First of all, there’s no wifi in any of their shops because they don’t want the focus to be on work. Instead, avert your gaze to the pretty books decorating the walls.

The vegan breakfast seasoned with scrambled tofu and creamy avo is incredible. But, they also make amazing French Toast. This isn’t the type of place you go in for a quick bite to eat, this is a place when you go and take a deep breath and unwind with delicious coffee and breakfast. 


Esters is a gorgeous little gem of a breakfast and brunch place in Stoke Newington, serving the most delicious coffees and food you need first thing in the morning. 

One of the best breakfasts in East London, they cook a short and creative menu from scratch inspired by local produce and grown by small farmers in Cambridgeshire, Sussex, Kent and sometimes even East London. 

The menu is typical of a slightly more upmarket brunch spot, and although it’s not a big menu they sure do get creative with their ingredients. Their poached eggs are delicious – in fact, all their eggs are. 

We also love their french toast and the tasty vegetables topped in a salsa verde. 

The Blue Legume

Tucked away on Stoke Newington’s Church Street is The Blue Legume, a café that does smashed avocado and poached eggs on sourdough so very, very well. The best brunch Stoke Newington has to offer? We think so.

This is your go-to for all your proper brunch needs and those Sunday morning hangovers. The breakfast menu is incredible, but there’s also a range of paninis, salads and specials for all-day dining.

The waiting time is short, the food is delicious and you’ll want to order several coffees once you taste that first one. There’s also gorgeous seating outside where you can watch the world go by. 

Practical Tips for Finding the Perfect Stoke Newington Brunch

  • Have a few places in mind that you want to go to in case they’re busy at the weekend, usually you can’t book for brunch so make sure you have some back ups. 
  • Try the specials or go with something a little bit off-piste, it’s always fun to try out new meals you wouldn’t usually order!
