Love brunch? Good, because the London Brunch Fest is returning to the Truman Brewery for two days next weekend, Saturday 31 August and Sunday 1 September.
The capital’s brunchiest restaurants (yes, that is indeed a thing) will be serving up everything from avo on toast to slow cooked beef benedicts.
This year’s big headliners include Millennial favourite, Avobar who will be serving up, you guessed it, avocado boats topped with salmon and poached eggs, along with Brother Marcus who will dish out all things ‘Yummy Mummy’ – falafel, tabouleh, aubergine with lemon, parsley and beetroot tahini.
Other worthy shoutouts go to the Aussie guys and gals at Brickwood. Their ‘The Bomb!’, banana bread with cacao cream, salted peanut butter and pecan brittle, topped with shaved Tim Tams, is definitely worthy of a place on your dessert list.
You can also get waffles from Waffle On – think poached rhubarb and lots of strawberries piled on a golden crispy waffle – but it might require an extra visit to the gym.
New on the line up this year is Sweet Street. It’s essentially a room dedicated to the sweet side of brunch only.
The cookie monsters at Naked Dough, the Vegan ice cream experts of DAPPA, cake queens Butter Believe It and Smith and Sinclair, purveyors of the finest boozy cocktail confections, will be calling the space home. Pack an extra stomach.
Speaking of booze, there’s lot of it. A dedicated Bloody Mary Bar masterminded by the team at Longbottom & CO will be on hand to make sure you’re fueled until the early hours.
Prosecco will be thrown out by the lads at Bubble Bros (they will have plenty), and if coffee is more your kind of thing, Origin Coffee will 100% be there to sort that niggling caffeine fix out.
In addition to all the food and drink, there’s a packed schedule of talks, workshops and demos planned, all to the sounds of some resident DJs bustin’ out tunes – because, atmosphere.
Tickets to the brunch shindig cost £12.50 and cover two sessions that take place on both Saturday and Sunday between the hours of 10am and 1:30pm and 2pm to 6:30pm (5:30pm on the Sunday).
The ticket includes entry as well as access to all the talks and discussions taking place on the main stage.
Food, is sadly, not included, though for every ticket and meal sold, a meal will be donated to the charity, Magic Breakfast. A very good reason to treat yo’self.
