Lantana Café Shoreditch

Who would say no to a bottomless brunch? Head to Boondocks and choose their Bootsie Brunch Special, which entitles you to a choice of bottomless tea or coffee, a glass of OJ or a Bloody Mary, followed by a choice of any main and any two sides. Even better? The bottomless option is just £18 per person, which makes it extremely worth the dip in your pocket.
How do you like your eggs in the morning? Choose from poached, fried or scrambled and pair the eggy goodness up with the likes of muffins, sausage and american cheese dishes. Or maybe you have a sweeter tooth and fancy a pancake with drizzled in maple syrup and whipped cream? The choice is yours!
Fancy a turkish brunch with a twist? Head over to Oklava if you’re looking for a healthier in-between breakfast and lunch option. Your tastebuds may be tempted by the Black Sea Cheese Pide with Soft Egg, Caramelised Onion and salad. Or maybe you’re looking for something a little heavier to fill your appetite between brunch and dinner? The Seftali Kebab with Rred onion salad and lemon is one of Oklava’s most popular selling dishes! Lunch is 12-3pm and dinner 5.30-10pm.
A more classic and more popular for lunch and dinner, but equally as nice for brunch is St Leonards. If you’re looking for somewhere that is a little more British and traditional with their food choices, you may want to head over to St Leonards for quail eggs with forest salt. The smoked pigs head with tabasco sounds super scrumptious on some grilled stockholm bread.
Or maybe you fancy something from the dinner menu, but for a more fulfilling brunch? The flamed mackerel and smoked eels are classic meals that are difficult to find elsewhere – let alone somewhere that do them completely perfectly.
The brunch options are endless, so you will need to make a number of trips into Shoreditch to really appreciate the many different brunch highlights in one of the best areas of London. Where will you go first?
