Brunch in Notting Hill: 15 of the best places for your mid morning meal

Whether you’re in search of a bargain in the market stalls of Portobello Road, spending rather more in the boutiques of Westbourne Grove, or you’ve just come for a wander around the garden squares and to gawp at the huge stucco houses, Notting Hill makes for a brilliant London day out. It’s also the centre of west London brunch culture, meaning we’ve had a lot of cafes and restaurants to whittle down before putting this list together for you.


Brunches have seen a real rise in popularity over the past couple of decades, and this is a trend we can’t see disappearing any time soon (a relief for those who don’t fall into the early risers bracket). But what makes this modern mealtime so good? Well, we love that the menus can range between anything from yoghurt and granola to fried chicken and waffles - meaning we no longer need an excuse to eat whatever we want, whenever we want.

Notting Hill brunches vary from egg focused cafes to Mediterranean eateries and even spots that look to showcase lesser known cuisines such as Palestinian. You’ll find plenty of clean eating options with smoothies and plates packed with greens, through to some hearty full-English fry ups, so whether you’re looking to load up on nutrients or cure an almighty hangover, there’s plenty of choice.

Each restaurant below offers a great place to spend a lazy afternoon eating and drinking your way through the weekend, so take a look through and find something you suit your taste. The best brunch in Notting Hill is just moments away.
