14 unmissable brunches that you need to try in Marylebone

Looking for the best brunch in Marylebone? Our recommendations all offer something a bit different - from casual settings to decadent hotels. It’s never too early to start thinking about where to go for your next brunch, and London’s restaurant and café scene is packed with options. Considering Marylebone’s central location, it’s no surprise that it boasts a range of great weekend brunch spots as well as ideal spaces for a weekday meeting - because all meetings are made better when pancakes are involved, right?

Despite the posh postcode there are some fantastically affordable options, with many high-end restaurants offering up brunch menus for a snip of cost you might pay for the equivalent amount of food at dinner time, so it can be a great moment to try the latest hot spots without breaking the bank. Or for something decadent try one of Maryebone’s impressive hotels where you can enjoy brunch and bubbles in a 5-star setting for a special weekend celebration.


Whether you’re after a full-blown fry up or fancy something a bit different, there really is a brunch for every occasion. We’ve included traditional options offering menus filled with classics, right through to impressive spots serving something unique. If it’s a casual bite you are looking for then 31 below or Monocle Cafe both offer relaxed settings, great coffee and reasonably priced dishes. For something fancy, Palm Court at The Langham and the Montagu Kitchen & Lounge both offer glitzy surrounds and beautifully executed menus for those looking to make brunch a real occasion.

Whatever it is you crave, we’ve rounded up a handful of the best below, which are sure to suit every appetite.


Brunch at Fischer's Marylebone

Why: This Venetian-inspired café from The Wolseley Hospitality Group is found right on Marylebone high street. The chic cafe serves up a brunch menu which sees black pudding rosti served alongside Dorset crab with scrambled eggs, or buttermilk pancakes topped with maple yoghurt. If you’re looking to make things boozy, add a glass of Champagne from the impressive by-the-glass selection at Fischer's.
Where: 50 Marylebone High Street, W1U 5HN
Book now: Fischer's

The Montagu Kitchen & Lounge

Three course brunch menu

Why: This versatile brasserie finds its home at hotel Hyatt Regency The Churchill and offers one of Marylebone’s most indulgent brunches. Not just a quick bite on the go, Sunday brunch at The Montague Kitchen & Lounge is a three course affair, serving the likes of rosemary sourdough, poached eggs with lobster and desserts of Belgian waffles and French toast. Those wanting to treat themselves can also add two hours of bubbly to their brunch.
Where: Portman Square, W1H 7BH

Nobu Portman Square

nobu portman square brunch

Why: Technically this is Nobu's breakfast menu, but with dishes like banana caramel soy French toast, and salmon and scrambled egg donburi on the menu, we think its just as appropriate for brunch. There are some more classic brunch options on there too - a full English and eggs benedict, for example - but if you're going to come to Nobu, we'd recommend going with the excellent Nobu favourites, or book from 12 when the lunch menu comes on.

108 Brasserie & Bar 

Brunch with waffles and berries

Why: For a traditional brunch in a chic brasserie setting, head to 108.

Brunch plates in Marylebone

Why: The cooking at this all-dayer takes its cue from Tel Aviv, and its brunch offering is no different.

Ravinder's distinctive flavour combinations translate well to brunch, with dishes like Goan sausage roll with pineapple ketchup, and a buckwheat and pumpkin dosa with coconut chutney both showing off her borderless flavours concept. There are sweet options too, like an excellent saffron malpua with pistachio ice cream, and the dining room is very charming indeed, all plush scatter cushions and chintzy furnishings.
