I’ve compiled a list of the ten best weekend brunch restaurants in Southwark. We moved to this amazing part of London three and a half years ago, so we’ve eaten a lot of breakfast and brunch throughout the borough! I’m a big fan of brunch because it is a combination of breakfast and lunch. I order vegetarian or vegan brunch options, so my photographs show non-meat dishes. If you are searching for the best weekend brunch in Southwark, you will enjoy reading my article. My list is in alphabetical order. I hope you find somewhere excellent to eat brunch in Southwark!
Ten Best Weekend Brunch Restaurants In Southwark
The Albie Restaurant Blackfriars has an all-day menu with breakfast and brunch options. I recommend the Sweet Potato Rosti (above) with Poached Egg, Goats’ Cheese, Kale, Pine Nuts and Dill Yoghurt. The Eggbreak Benny, Eggbreak Royal, BTA Bap (Bacon, Tomato and Avocado) or Nutella French Toast sound delicious. Read my Albie Restaurant Review here.
Bobo Social Elephant and Castle is a great place to hang out at the weekend. The area has gone through a lot of regeneration, with Sayer Street being the restaurant hub. I’ve tried the Vegetarian Breakfast (above), which was excellent. They also serve a Full Breakfast, Shakshouka, Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine and more. Read my Bobo Social Review here.
Cafe Murano Bermondsey is where you go for a top-notch brunch by Angela Hartnett. The weekend brunch menu is concise yet yummy. I loved the Spinach and Ricotta Puff Pastry Roll and Ricotta Pancakes (above). Other options include a Bacon and Fried Egg Brioche Bun, Cured Salmon with Scrambled Eggs, Asparagus with Roast Tomatoes and Poached Egg and Baked Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce.

Caravan Bankside has a delicious brunch menu. I can vouch for the Fried Jalapeno Cornbread with Fried Egg, Black Beans, Tomato, Chipotle Salsa, Yoghurt Curds and Coriander (above). Other tempting dishes are Slow Cooked Pork Belly with Kimchi Pancakes and Hot Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs on Toasted Sourdough. Read my Caravan Bankside Review here.
Lantana London Bridge is an Australian café. The weekend brunch menu is brimming with beautiful dishes. I always enjoy the Wild Mushrooms on Sourdough (above), Courgettes and Cheddar Bread with Halloumi and Corn Fritters with Halloumi. You’ll appreciate the Cinnamon French Toast, Veg Big Bubble Benedict and Duck Hash. Read my Lantana Review here.
Provisioners Tower Bridge is part of The Dixon Hotel. Their brunch menu is small, but it has everything you need. I have fond memories of the Provisioners Flat Bread with Halloumi (or Bacon), Fried Egg, Avocado, Sweet Chilli Jam, Crème Fraiche and Rocket. Eggs Florentine, Benedict and Royal are also available. A Full English Breakfast or Veggie English Breakfast are perfect if you are ravenous. Pizzas and Wagyu Burger may appeal if you are feeling more lunch than brunch! Read my Provisioners Review here.
Terry’s Cafe Bankside is an institution and a must-visit if you are a fan of traditional breakfasts. I always enjoy a Vegetarian Full English (above) because it is comforting and satisfying. The Fry Up section lists meat, vegetarian and vegan options of the Full English. Breakfast Rolls, Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs, Buck Rarebit and Beans on Toast are also available. Read my Terry’s Cafe review here.
The Table Bankside specialise in brunch. I’ve tried quite a few dishes, including the Breakfast Stack with Homemade Baked Beans, Sweet Potato, Herby Mushroom, Chickpea Patty, Wilted Spinach, Poached Eggs and Hollandaise Sauce. You’ll also be impressed with the Benedicts selection, Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes, Sweetcorn Fritters, Sweet Pancakes and Waffles. Read The Table Review here.
Watch House Tower Bridge/Shad Thames combine their own blends of ‘modern coffee’ with a well thought out menu. At the weekend, you can treat yourself to Vegetarian, Vegan, or Full House Breakfast made with quality ingredients like Cacklebean Eggs. Sweetcorn Fritters, Avocado on Toast and a selection of egg dishes are also available. Read my Watch House Review here.
Where The Pancakes Are Bankside is where you need to go if you know you definitely want pancakes. My favourite is the Hummingbird Pancakes with Cinnamon Poached Pineapple, House Cream, Pomegranate, Flaked Coconut, Lime Syrup and Zest (above). I prefer Sweet Pancakes like the Banana Marshmallow, Forest Berries and Strawberries. The Savoury Pancakes come with a choice of Pulled Beef Pastrami, Salad or Greens.
