Looking to brunch in Canary Wharf? Start the morning with skyscrapers as your backdrop (and a bottomless mimosa or two in hand) with the best breakfast spots in the city — from a Londoner.
When someone says Canary Wharf, a few images tend to come to mind. Tall skyscrapers, busy bankers, city life.
But today, I’m here to add one more. Yummy bottomless brunch (with the city as your backdrop of course).
Having lived just a stone’s throw from Canary Wharf, I’ve lucked out on trying on all the best brunch spots this shiny part of town has to offer. And of course, I’m happy to share.
In the post, I’ll be breaking down where to find the best boozy (and non-boozy) brunch in Canary Wharf.
Including the best bottomless brunch in Canary Wharf and breakfast places in Canary Wharf that’ll leave you beyond full and happy (I’m looking at you Big Easy). Let’s get into it!
1. Big Easy Canary Wharf Bottomless Brunch
Crossrail Pl, London E14 5AR
At this point I should be an official sponsor of Big Easy, I’m always talking about them! But for good reason.
The American B.B.Q shack is a Canary Wharf favourite for its stateside grub, live music and boozy brunch. But back to the brunch bit.
An exclusively weekend affair you can take up Big Easy’s bottomless brunch for just £34.50. Including your choice of unlimited prosecco, frozen mojitos, red or wine white or the infamous Big Easy Brew.
From Juicy dry rub steak (Texas-sized of course) to fresh red lobsters, this is definitely a Canary Wharf breakfast for the books.
Must-Try: Frozen Mojito
2. Gaucho Brunch Canary Wharf
29 Westferry Circus, London E14 8RR
Gaucho’s Argentinian cuisine has held the hearts of Londoners since 1994, coming to the UK with a mission to bring the world’s best steak to the UK.
Don’t worry, if you’re vegan/vegetarian there’s an excellent Burrata (overflowing with tomato, pistachio and maple syrup vinaigrette might I add) and Smashed Avo with crème fraîche to die for.
Otherwise, you can dig into their prime Rump Steak and Eggs or Brisket Muffin to start your day off right.
On the drinks side, there’s everything from Aperol Spritz to Bloody Marys, or house favourites like Rekorderlig (Rhubarb, lemon & mint cider) or Botanical No.1 to sip through the morning.
The Electro Brunch Feast will set you back £52.50 whilst the Premium Electro Brunch Feast (including a Pornstar Martini, Domain Chandon or an Espresso Martini as your drink options) £62.50.
Must-Try: Brisket muffin or Burrata
3. Bokan Canary Wharf Bottomless Brunch
40 Marsh Wall, London E14 9TP
If you like your breakfast with a view, read on. The award-winning rooftop hangout is one of those breakfast places in Canary Wharf you hope isn’t in it just for the Instagram appeal. But lucky for you, the food’s pretty great too.
Once you reach the 37th floor of Bokan you can treat yourself to an eclectic brunch of everything from foie gras brioche to Salmon & Haas Avacado.
Brunch starts at 12:30-3:30pm on Saturdays (last orders at 2pm) and Sunday 12:30-4:00pm (last orders at 2:30pm). Their menu also changes with seasonality (and they haven’t seemed to update it) so be sure to give them a ring before you go!
Must-Try: Foie gras brioche with Bramley apple, lovage and hibiscus
4, Park Pavillion, 40 Canada Square, London E14 5FW
If free-flowing wine is your thing, this might be the Canary Wharf brunch spot for you. Welcome to Roka.
The acclaimed Japanese robatayaki cuisine is anything but your ordinary brunch spot. So be prepared to switch your pancakes and bacon for stars like gyuhireniku no pirikara yakiniku (a beef fillet sprinkled with chilli, ginger and spring onion) or kinoko no kamemeshi (a delicious mushroom hot pot with truffle).
Brunch starts at £49.00 per person or £65.00 with a bellini on entrance and red, white or rose throughout your brunch.
Must-Try: sake no peri peri maki (spicy salmon and cucumber maki)
5. The Breakfast Club
1 Crossrail Pl, London E14 5AR
Okay, okay, so it’s not wagyu steak with dramatic Canary Wharf skyline views, but it is The Breakfast Club, and it’s pretty cool if you ask me.
My visit to The Breakfast Club in Canary Wharf!
Founded by two besties from Yorkshire with a *slight* obsession for American culture, The Breakfast Club has become a cult classic in London for their signature dishes like The Classic All-American (fluffy pancakes, bacon, sausage, home-fried potatoes and eggs and oozes of maple syrup) and naughty favourites like Fried Chicken French Toast.
But that definitely shouldn’t stop you from enjoying their amazing range of treat-yo-self breakfast finds and incredibly delicious (£6!) cocktails.
Must-Try: The All American or The Full Monty (vegan/vegetarian alternatives available for each)
6. Pergola Canary Wharf
Crossrail Pl, London E14 5AR
Natural ingredients. Boho decor. Wharfside views. We’re going to Pergola.
As a new kid on the Canary Wharf brunch block, Pergola’s had a lot to prove. But with a bottomless brunch offer that almost seems too good to be true, they’re officially welcome to the East side.
A morning filled with tunes, Samba dancers (yes, you read that right) and all the Bloody Mary’s you can handle, it’s definitely the best breakfast place in Canary Wharf for a good time.
£35 per person will grant you two hours of endless Prosecco, Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas, Aperol Spritz or their own Pergola Punch. And for £50 it’s the same, but with a delicious 2-course brunch.
Must-Try: Full Plate and Sweet Buttermilk Pancakes
7. The Sipping Room
West India Quay, 16 Hertsmere Rd, London E14 4AX
Last (but certainly not least) we’ve got The Sipping Room.
A gorgeous Grade II building overlooking the docks — it’s the perfect place to catch up with friends, Canary Wharf style.
The menu’s completely seasonal, so you’re always in for a surprise. But hopefully the Warm Baked Jalapeño Cornbread and Buttermilk Chicken & Waffle are here to stay.
Must-Try: Full Works
