In this post, I’ll be sharing where to find the best brunch places in Covent Garden including where to find the best bottomless brunch in Covent Garden, where to find the best bottomless brunch in Covent Garden on a weekday and things to do in Covent Garden after you’re done brunching. Shall we?
The Best Brunch, Bottomless Brunch & Breakfast in Covent Garden
1. Salvador & Amanda
8 Great Newport St, London WC2H 7JA
If Spanish brunch is your thing you’re officially mandated (by me) to visit Salvador & Amanda. Because life without tapas is like a heart without love, as they say.
Fill your morning with their cosy Spanish ambience, classic breakfast tapas and their incredibly delicious Signature Sangria.
Lucky for you, they’ve also got one of the best bottomless brunches in Covent Garden — where you can wash down endless Spanish wine, beer or Sangria with their Breakfast LOCO, or enjoy their Breakfast Grande if you’re looking a *less tipsy* start to your morning.
Must-Try: Truffle Mushroom Egg Hash
2. Dalloway Terrace
16-22 Great Russell St, London WC1B 3NN
Decorated to the brim and quintessentially British, this Covent Garden brunch spot has made a name for itself as one of the best brunches in Covent Garden (it’s also named after Virginia Woolf!).
£35 per person will privy you to their incredible bottomless brunch (Covent Garden style of course) including a coffee and tea, freshly squeezed juice and delectable breakfast starters and mains. If you’re looking for a bottomless brunch in Covent Garden for a weekday, it’s on Thursday & Friday too!
Must-Try: Baked Shakshuka with smoky chorizo
26 Southampton St, London WC2E 7RS
Think of Abuelo as where Australians met South Americans and decided to make breakfast together. The Covent Garden brunch spot and family-owned business is a true farm to table, with all their brunch options ethically sourced (and incredibly yummy).
Its homey atmosphere and chilled vibe make it a great spot for a Sunday brunch in Covent Garden, catching up with friends, or making some new ones.
Feast over their speciality Huevos Divorciados De Turco breakfast or take it down under with The Big Bondi. Whatever you do, don’t you dare leave without trying one of their empanadas (well, you can…but you’ll regret it).
Must-Try: Vegetarian Empanada
4. Dishoom Covent Garden
12 Upper St Martin’s Ln, London WC2H 9FB
From Bombay with love Dishoom easily has one of the best brunches in Covent Garden (let alone London).
With the crème de la crème of Indian cuisine at your fingertips, a visit here is like stepping on the continent itself.
The Parsi Omelette is especially delicious. But I’ll admit it’s equally tied with the Keema Per Eedu power breakfast (with a fresh homemade bun).
Must-Try: The Big Bombay & homemade buns
5. 26 Grains
1 Neal’s Yard, London WC2H 9DP
From savoury Egg Brioche Buns to Pumpkin Salads it’s one of the loveliest vegan and vegetarian-friendly brunch spots in Covent Garden. And because of the seasonality of the dishes, you never fully know what you’re gonna get, so prepare for a surprise!
P.S – If you’re looking to brunch in Covent Garden outdoors there’s some cosy outdoor seating here with a great view of Neal’s Yard!
Must-Try: St John’s Pastries
6. Drury 188-189
188-189 Drury Ln, London WC2B 5QD
Drury 188-189 was made for one purpose — to eat, drink and chat. Mission accomplished!
It’s been voted one of the best brunches in London, with a friendly vibe and fresh and organic breakfast finds that keep the locals coming back (and back).
Basically, if you’re looking for a brunch in Covent Garden to take your health-conscious friend (while you veg out on their brioche French toast) this is the place for you.
Must-Try: Organic Porridge with Blueberries, Strawberries, Chia Seed and Coconut Flakes
7. Big Easy
12 Maiden Ln, London WC2E 7NA
I’ve had a love affair with Big Easy since I moved to London, and it’s not going away anytime soon.
The All-American BBQ Shack serves up the very best of USA goodness…and a dang good bottomless brunch in Covent Garden.
Pay a visit on the weekend to try their Free Flowing Bubbles Weekend Boozy Brunch. Which I’ll admit, sounds way too good to be true (but it is 😉).
Between the prosecco, Big Easy Brew, Frozen Mojito or red and white wine and choice of Limitless Bar.B.Q, Texas Dry Rub Steak or succulent lobster, it’ll easily be the best 34.5 pounds you’ll spend all season.
P.S – It’s also a great spot for a family brunch in Covent Garden!
Must-Try: Anything Bar.B.Q (they do it so well!)
8. Ping Pong Dim Sum Bottomless Brunch
23-24 Maiden Ln, London WC2E 7NA
Okay, so Dim Sum might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of brunch in Covent Garden, but if you’re coming to Ping Pong, it’s worth skipping the bacon and eggs.
The lovely Chinese restaurant serves all things dumplings (handmade with love) and of the most delicious bottomless brunches in Covent Garden.
For £35 you can enjoy 90 minutes of Ping Pong’s bottomless goodness — fit with creative cocktails or endless bubbly and a set Dim Sum menu
P.S – There’s a Vegetarian Dim Sum too!
Must-Try: Chicken & Cashew Dumplings
11-12 Russell St, London WC2B 5HZ
Tuttons is a lovely little bistro tucked in the middle of Covent Garden. Popular with the theatre crowds, it’s a great spot to have brunch in Covent Garden before enjoying a show in the West End.
The star-studded interiors will instantly make you feel like you’re dining in Hollywood. But lucky for you, their menu still maintains its British routes, including a heavenly Traditional English Breakfast and Eggs Royale.
Must-Try: Traditional English Breakfast
4-6 Russell St, London WC2B 5HZ
Finishing off the best brunch spots in Covent Garden with a hats off to Balthazar — a legendary NYC Parisian style-bistro.
Just a stone’s throw away from the Opera House a weekend brunch here is usually a special occasion (champagne brunch in Covent Garden anyone?).
All dishes are also made from the finest of the finest ingredients, so even though their menu may mirror other brunch spots in London, trust me, they’ll taste a lot better.
Treat yourself to a classic Balthazar steak and eggs or head stateside for the morning with their New York pancakes (topped with fresh banana and maples syrup). As long as you pair it with a Mimosa of course.
Must-Try: Eggs Benedict with Frites
