On Sunday, we made an impromptu decision to treat ourselves to weekend brunch at Cafe Murano on Bermondsey Street. Angela Harnett’s restaurant is around the corner from our apartment, so we didn’t have far to go. We sat on the terrace under an umbrella and shared three delicious dishes and coffees. We’ve eaten lunch and dinner at this restaurant before and have always had a wonderful experience. If you’re looking for the best weekend brunch near London Bridge, places to eat on Bermondsey Street or SE1, you’ll love Cafe Murano.

Weekend Brunch Cafe Murano Bermondsey Street Menu
Cafe Murano is an Italian restaurant serving Gnocchi, Spaghetti, Ragu and other Italian delights for lunch and dinner. The weekend brunch menu is concise, which I like because it means less dithering. We decided to share the Chard and Ricotta Puff Pastry Roll with Mixed Leaf Salad. I make something similar myself at home but with spinach, feta and filo pastry, okay maybe it’s not that similar! Because this was a pastry dish prepared by a professional, it looked and tasted so much better than my effort! The simple mixed leaf salad was fresh and full of peppery flavour.

We loved the Mozzarella with Green Beans, Peach and Walnuts, it was so creamy, and we enjoyed spreading it over the sourdough toast. I particularly enjoyed the peaches with the mozzarella; it is something I will attempt at home. It was the most expensive dish on the menu at £14.

Oh my god, the Ricotta Pancakes with Apricot and Honey Compote were the best I’ve ever tasted. I’ve been dreaming about them ever since. The pancakes were light and fluffy with a lemony taste, rather like lemon curd. I enjoyed the compote because the apricots tasted slightly tart. I’d recommend you try these pancakes if they are on the menu.

The other brunch options included a Nduja Smoked Cheese Toastie, a Bacon and Fried Egg Brioche Bun, Cured Salmon with Scrambled Eggs and Baked Eggs with Spicy Tomatoes. Also on the menu was a Fruit Salad, Croissant, Pain au Chocolate and Sourdough Toast with Butter. The prices for the main dishes are £7-14. You may want to add a Coffee, Juice, Smoothie, Bloody Mary, Bellini, or Mimosa.
Everything at Cafe Murano is spot on. The interiors are stylish, the staff are friendly, and the food is amazing. It’s well worth booking a table whether you want weekend brunch, dinner or lunch.
