Best Breakfasts & Brunch Spots 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 

Head to Petit Coin for a stellar brunch. 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. The Muddy Puddle is 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, serving the most delicious coffees and food you need first thing in the morning, although they also employ a strict ‘no laptop’ policy at certain times.

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 fried eggs with a kimchi apple relish are delicious. 

We also love their french toast and the tasty vegetables topped in a salsa verde, but we think the showstopper is the squash and barley salad.

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. 

This is your go-to for all your proper brunch needs, from the American pancake stack through to the oozy and delicious french toast, 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. 

The Good Egg

Combining culinary influences from New York and the Middle East, The Good Egg in Stoke Newington is one of the most sumptuous and varied brunch spots you’ll find anywhere.

If you’re heading there during the week, you can book in advance for up to six people, but don’t try during the weekend, you’ll receive short shrift. However, it’s worth walking up and getting your weekend fix at this amazing eatery.

We adore the vegan bowl of muhamarra, confit beans, dressed beats and pitta, and were also seduced by the smoked haddock hash. They also have an awesome cocktail list to go with locally brewed beer, and a beautiful range of coffees to kick start the day.

215 Hackney

Another spot with a Middle Eastern slant on the brunch experience, this socially conscious cafe is a brilliant place to kick off your day.  

215 Hackney works in partnership with the War Child charity to promote peace with a fusion of Tel Aviv’s street food scene, Syrian delights, and rustic Palestinian cuisine.

Sounds great, right? So what should you choose once the menu lands in front of you? We love the Morning Palestine, a Jerusalem bagel topped with honey and butter served with a couple of gorgeous fried eggs. Alternatively, try out the Cypriot halloumi, topped with dak dak salad and pickles. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Oh, and we also recommend the Kale Kick smoothie to get your day off to a flyer!

Acoustic Brasserie

Head a little west from the Middle East and you’ll find yourself submerged in the Mediterranean Sea. If you want a taste of Mediterranean cuisine to kick off your day, check out the many brekkie and brunch treats on offer from Acoustic Brasserie.

Choices range from croissants and buttermilk pancakes with a wonderfully alluring range of toppings to eggs (we love the chorizo omelette) and the range of cooked delights (the vegan feast!),

Want something a little heavier to help work through a hangover? Check out the Keshkek Brunch or aptly named hangover cure burger that comes topped with all sorts of treasures.

The Parlour

The Parlour markets itself as a brunch restaurant with a menu that’s stacked full of awesome homemade treats and you know what… It’s not wrong. 

Kick off your day with tasty Borek, complete with spinach and feta, or the Cumberland breakfast that also has egg, portobello mushroom, tomato, hash browns and, of course, beans. 

Looking for something sweeter to begin your day? No problem. Their classic pancakes come with melt-in-your-mouth butter and oozy maple syrup. We’re also a big fan of their chicken burger seemingly named after Italy’s legendary midfielder Andrea Pirlo!
