Notting Hill is the kind of place where a good day is guaranteed.
But the only thing that could make a day of vintage shopping at Portobello Market, pottering around pastel houses and feeling like you’re in going to run into Hugh Grant at any moment (still waiting) is adding some brunch to it.
Out of all the brunch spots in London, Notting Hill’s breakfast places are hard to beat. Whether it’s bottomless brunching in a cozy Italian cafe to impromptu morning catchups over a full English in an Instagrammable cafe it’s hard to outdo a West London breakfast, so let’s not try shall we? Here’s 10 yummy places to start your morning in Notting Hill the right way.
1. Farm Girl Café
59A Portobello Rd, London W11 3DB
After Rose Mann moved to London she decided to make her mark on the coffee scene—Aussie style. Founded in 2015 Farm Girl Café is the perfect place to spend a morning in Notting Hill for a guilt-free brunch—with all items deliciously health-conscious.

I’m always wary of wildly popular breakfast spots like Eggslut. Will it live up to the hype? Well, my fellow egg fanatic, I’m proud to say it does.
The L.A turned Notting Hill brunch spot was founded out of a love for all things eggy—and the menu shows it. If you’re in the mood for the classics take up their Bacon, Egg & Cheese (piping warm brioche bun included) or spice it up with their Gaucho Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich.
They also source nearly all of their goods from British producers, meaning all your breakfast is as fresh as it comes.
