Matt Burgess’ Top 5 Brunch Restaurants in London

Matt Burgess, Group Head Chef of Caravan restaurants, shares his Top 5 London brunch restaurants.

The Parlour


Matt says, ‘Jesse is one of the hottest chefs I know, smashing brunch in a beautifully British way. You’ve got to try his arctic roll for a sweet brunch chaser!’

Parlour, 5 Regent Street, NW10 5LG


Matt says, ‘This is my home away from home — great coffee and corn fritters to die for.’

Brickwood, 16 Clapham Common South Side, SW4 7AB; 11 Hildreth Street, SW12 9RQ; Tooting Market, 21–23 Tooting High Street, SW17 0SN

Berber & Q

Matt says, ‘I don’t do traditional breakfast and neither do Berber & Q. Turkish eggs are my go-to when I’m in need of protein with flavour.’

Berber & Q, 338 Acton Mews, E8 4EA

Modern Pantry

Matt says, ‘Anna Hanson has always been a Kiwi hero of mine, and her legendary marmite and ricotta waffle will bring about world peace.’

Modern Pantry, 47–48 St. John’s Square, EC1V 4JJ; 14 Finsbury Square, EC2A 1AH

The Providores

Matt says, ‘Peter Gordon is the Godfather of Kiwi cuisine, brunch and all things fusion. Nearly 16 years on “brunch at Provs” is still as good as it was when I first tasted the brown rice & miso porridge!’

The Providores, 109 Marylebone High Street, W1U 4RX
