WEEKEND MEANS BRUNCH TIME!
Hi everyone, would you enjoy a brunch this weekend? For sure you would and it is exactly the reason why I thought that writing about my TOP 5 best affordable brunches in Central London for students. All these places are no-booking restaurants which means long queue!
Muriel’s Kitchen is the fairytale brunch for me, as everything is nicely presented and its decoration seems to come straight out of Alice in Wonderland, especially with these lovely swing chairs. Moreover, this place is really pleasant for a brunch or tea and great value for money.
The brunches choices are really wide, even if you are vegetarian, which is important to mention. Hence, from pastries to bagels, full English breakfast and extremely tasty smoothies, there’s something for everyone!
My favourite food? The Champion’s Breakfast which is a crushed avocado with fresh chilli & honey dressing on sourdough toasted bread with your choice of poached or fried organic Clarence Court eggs with British streaky bacon or smoked salmon, approximately 13£.

Another place for brunch, another atmosphere, the Breakfast Club is the most famous Brunch in London and this is .. an American Brunch (which means bacon, guacamole, tortilla and maple sirup..yummy) and this spot is friendly and the food tastes delicious.
My favourites? The Avocado & Poached egg with fresh chillies, basil, lemon juice & pumpkin seeds on multigrain bloomer with bacon or chorizo £10 and the Posh sausage sandwich Sausage (veg available), smoked Applewood cheese, Portobello mushroom & red onion chutney £7.
However, the only drawback will be that you need to wait hours and hours in the queue to get inside and get your Brunch… it’s a victim of its own success but it’s definitely worth it!
