Whether you’re on the hunt for a Bloody Mary, a stack of pancakes or a breakfast burrito, South London has loads of great brunch options. Check out our favourite spots south of the river. 


Coal Rooms 

The menu at Coal Rooms speaks for itself. Choose from; corn tacos filled with pumpkin mole, chimichurri and London Fettle, the much-loved cured bacon sandwich, or a full English for two, comprised of smoked jerk goat sausage, smoked pig’s head black pudding, fried duck eggs and bone marrow butter mushrooms. Delicious.
