Looking to brunch in the Clapham & Battersea area? Look no further. Here’s the best breakfast spots to start your morning like a local. From a Londoner!
There’s nothing like brunching in Clapham and Battersea.
The Southwest London hub is pumped with a young millennial crowd, local vibe…and mysteriously good pancakes.
Without further ado, here are the best breakfast and brunch spots in the Clapham and Battersea area (don’t worry, you can walk it off in Clapham Common or Battersea Park later).
Best Breakfast & Brunch in Clapham & Battersea
1. Social Pantry
Sitting cosy on Lavender Hill — Social Pantry is the kind of Clapham breakfast spot that makes you feel like a local from the moment you walk in.
Seasonality is their speciality here, so expect to trade your avocado on toast for things like Bramley Apple and Cardamom Porridge (delicious) or Oakwell Black Pudding.
Must-Try: Smoked Bacon and Marmite Butter Crumpet
2. NO 32 The Old Town
Some places just scream morning brunch, No 32 is one of them. Made for socialising the all-day brunch hub sits on a first-floor roof terrace with miles of Clapham Common views to enjoy.
If that wasn’t good enough, they also curate playlists specifically for brunching, talk about a Clapham brunch.
Must-Try: House Made Bircher Bowl
3. The Breakfast Club (Battersea Location)
Time to rise and shine by the river, brunch in Battersea style. Biasedly speaking The Breakfast Club is one of my favourite breakfast spots in London (no matter the location).
The daytime cafe serves oodles of American favourites; from pillow-like pancakes to disco hash browns. Plus their Battersea branch is one of the only locations that serve bottomless brunch — win!
And in case you’re wondering, yes, there is a Breakfast Pub.
Must-Try: Classic All-American
4. Lost Society
The Lost Society will make you rethink what it means to do breakfast (in a good way).
Their bottomless brunch is a Clapham and Battersea brunch favourite, including endless mimosas or bubbles and on-arrival drinks (Mexican Coconut & Lychee Martini anyone?).
Chow it down with all the avo on toast you can handle or a classic Full English.
Must-Try: The Very Full Breakfast
Honestly, you should visit BabaBoom for the name alone, but I digress.
Now if you’re looking for a typical brunch in Clapham, BabaBoom isn’t it. But if you like kebabs (and not just the 2am on a night out on a dodgy street corner kind) they’re calling your name.
Indulge over their charcoal cooked highlights (like their cauliflower infused kebab) and pair with mouthwatering craft beers and homemade hummus to match.
Must-Try: Chargrilled Cauliflower Kebab
6. The Candlemaker
Step back in time (with brunch of course) at The Candlemaker. An ode to the 60’s this colourful pub boasts an outdoor garden, heated pods…and funky wall art.
Try your hand at their Tizzy Dizzy’s Bottomless Bingo Brunch for 3-hours of singing, dancing and of course, a bottomless bubbly brunch in Clapham.
Must-Try: Sweet Vegan American Pancakes
Get in Clapham, we’re going to Mommis. Think Miami meets Venice Beach, meets Peru, meets Japan, meets really good brunch spot you take dibs for finding.
Quench your thirst and fill your stomach with their signature Mommi Bottomless Brunch (the Mommi’s Boy Brunch Burger…heavenly) and disco grooves all morning long…
Must-Try: Mommi’s Boy Brunch Burger or Build Your Own Brunch
8. The Perky Nel
Sometimes all your want for your breakfast in Clapham is a dog-friendly pub and a solid (or liquid) brunch. Hello Perky Nel.
The no-fuss sit down overlooks Clapham Common and is perfect for switching from your football to a Bloody Mary in minutes.
Must-Try: Huevos Rancheros or Truffled Eggs Benedict
9. The Clapham North
Of the same branch, The Clapham North is another great Clapham & Battersea brunch spot to kickstart your weekend.
Cosy in with their Pork Belly brunch or skip onto a Sunday Roast (there’s veggie options, too).
Must-Try: The Pork Belly Brunch
Brickwood is the kind of place you meet that friend you said you’d catch up with weeks ago but you forgot so you make up for it with a really good brunch spot.
The local gem is known for their friendly staff, Brekkie Burritos and amazing bread and coffee, inspired fully by Australian and New Zealand cafe culture.
Must-Try: Brickwood Burrito
