Looking for the best brunch spots in Camden? Here’s 10 amazing breakfast spots in the area — from an ex-Camdener!
There’s no place in London quite like Camden. Between its punk rock allure, Amy Winehouse spirit and of course, the buzz of Camden Market, you can easily lose hours exploring all the area has to offer.
Once upon a time I called Camden home, and so naturally I got to know all the best breakfast spots in Camden. Now I’m sharing them with you!
In this post I’ll be spilling the tea on all things brunch’in in Camden. Including where to find the best breakfast in Camden, where to find the best bottomless brunch in Camden, the best vegan brunch in Camden, the best halal brunch in Camden, the best asian bottomless brunch in Camden, the best outdoor brunch in Camden and so much more! Let’s breakfast in Camden shall we?
The Best Brunch & Breakfast in Camden
1. Camden Diner
There are some breakfast places in Camden that never change, and even though the Camden Diner has had a name change (formerly known as ‘The Diner) its brunch menu is still as good as ever.
The American-style diner is dripping in hearty breakfast options. So prepare your stomach for everything from Maple Brown French Toast and Home Fries and Breakfast Burritos.
Not to mention, the entire restaurant is decked out in Diner decor, for the full American dining experience of course.
Must-Try: Maple Bacon French Toast
2. Tai Pan Alley
If you’re looking for something a bit different for your brunch in Camden, why not try a bottomless asian brunch in Camden (yes, it exists). Tai Pan Alley is home to some of the best Asian street food in London, and a very tempting bottomless brunch.
Have your pick from their delicious home-cooked brunch menu and 3-courses of Asian breakfast goodness, then wash it down with unlimited Cosmopolitan, Prosecco or Langkawi Island Iced Tea for a full 90 minutes.
P.S – It’s super Instagrammable too
Must-Try: Malaysian Laksa Noodle soup or Bao selection
Commonly known as a pizza place Purezza surprised Londoners (and the brunch in Camden scene in general) this year with the announcement of their new Vegan Brunch menu.
What’s coming? Expect Italian-breakfastfied favourites like Sourdough Bruschetta alongside veggy classics like ‘The Big One’, a traditional vegan breakfast fit with Beyond Sausage, scrambled eggs, wild forest mushrooms, roasted potatoes, homemade Italian style Baked Beans and more! (with an Italian-twist of course).
Must-Try: Vegan Brunch
4. Frida Camden
A big part of Camden’s claim to fame is being home to artists and creatives, so it’s well-fitting Frida’s Camden found a home here.
The vibrant Spanish restaurant pays homage to the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, with a flavourful Latin brunch to match.
I recommend skipping the Full English here and going straight for the Huevos Rancheros (a classic Mexican dish). Which of course, calls for a side of pancakes too!
Must-Try: Huevos Rancheros
Mildred’s is one of my favourite breakfast spots in London, period. So of course it had to make the list for the best brunch spots in Camden too.
The 100% plant-based restaurant serves up a sinfully-good weekend brunch. Fill up your appetite with their harissa v’egg bap with scrambled tofu (and soft herbs) or get a bit more adventurous with options like their Gunpowder Toastie (I’ll let you find out for yourself).
While you’re there you might as well give their cocktails a go too, especially when Blueberry proseccos are on the menu…
Must-Try: Gunpowder Toastie & Smoothie selection
6. Blue’s Kitchen
As an American living in London, I’m constantly on the hunt for American breakfast spots in the city, Blue’s Kitchen has always been high on my list.
Soulful and sexy the American restaurant, bar & club is a hub for comfort food, cocktails and of course, live music. Not to mention a dang good brunch.
Satisfy all your soul food cravings here with their Sweet Potato Hash and Cornbread with Honey Butter, and American pancakes to match.
P.S – They’ve got locations in Shoreditch and Brixton too!
Must-Try: Buttermilk Pancakes
7. Ma Petite Jamaica
Ma Petite Jamaica is the first brunch spot in Camden (and London really) to make Jamaican bottomless brunches a thing. And boy will you be glad they did.
Classics here include their St Anne’s Brunch, filled with Saltfish & callaloo, yam chips, macaroni cheese and sweet corn fritters and fluffy Coconut Rum Cake; paired with 2 hours of unlimited Rum punch or prosecco.
Must-Try: St Anne’s Brunch
P.S – The bottomless brunch here only runs on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm-2:45pm (last seating is at 2.45pm!).
8. Near & Far Camden
Near & Far is where you go to brunch and party…and get an 100% gluten-free meal (one of the only places in London!)
There’s a lot going on here, from quirky cocktails to a roof terrace and a party-filled bottomless brunch every weekend.
Pay a visit to get your hands on their Cinnamon French Toast and 2 hours of bottomless Prosecco, Aperol Spritzs, Bloody Marys (and Margaritas) all for £35pp. It’s rooftop terrace also makes it one of the best outdoor brunch spots in Camden.
P.S – Bottomless brunch here runs from every Saturday from 11-3:30pm and Sunday 12-4:30pm
Must-Try: Cinnamon French Toast
Chicken & Waffles will always be the most interesting breakfast combos in my eyes (and the most delicious), but you’ve got to go somewhere that gets it right. Welcome to Bird.
Disclaimer, this isn’t a breakfast spot in Camden you go if you’re looking for variety. But if you love Chicken & Waffles (and basically every cheat food you can imagine) this is your place.
Chow down on their London’s Original Waffle Burger (a pink waffle stuffed with chicken thighs, cheese bacon and maple syrup) or spice it up with their Chili Cheese Waffle. Plus, their chicken is 100% halal, perfect if you’re looking for the best halal brunches in Camden.
Must-Try: Chicken & Waffle selection + a shake
10. Camden Social
New to the Camden breakfast scene, Camden Social sits pretty on right off Camden High Street, with loads of brunch options to choose from.
Treat yourself to their daily brunch menu of Homemade waffles and Shakshukas or make it bottomless on Sundays with 90 minutes of unlimited Aperol Spritz’ or Bellinis.
Must-Try: Homemade waffles with bacon & maple syrup
