Boondocks is the second restaurant from Chef Bea Vo and one of the most authentic American diners in London. Having just relaunched their brunch menu which is served on the weekends (9am-2pm), Boondocks is definitely one to check out. As recommended by Founder and Head Chef Bea Vo, the Roasted Strawberry Pancakes are ideal for the sweet toothed among us or the Bojangles for those who prefer a savoury option.

Housed in a Grade II listed building, Christopher’s is a modern American restaurant set over three floors making it a great option for a fancy brunch. The weekend brunch menu features healthy superfoods as well as the usual brunch options. We’d recommend the Chocolate Brioche French Toast served with vanilla ice cream. Brunch is served on weekends from 11.30am-3.30pm – we’d advise you to book in advance.

With a menu that is sugar-free, wheat-free, dairy-free and alcohol-free you might wonder what it is that Redemption actually serves. Well you’ll be pleased to know that London’s first alcohol free, vegan bar and restaurant offers great-tasting, beautifully-presented, Instagram-worthy dishes. The most popular item on the brunch menu is the buckwheat pancakes and having tasted it ourselves, we can understand why. Spoil yourself without spoiling yourself and indulge in guilt-free dining at their Notting Hill or Shoreditch restaurant.
