Oh, brunch. The stuff sent from the gods to get me outta bed in the morning ??
Pancakes with caramelised ‘nana AND endless cocktails in the AM is about 12039% better than cornflakes ain’t it?
Last Sunday Matt and I ventured to Brixton to check out this snazzy new brunch spot, Canova Hall.
We both walked through the doors in AWE.
It is possibly the most beautiful spot I have ever visited for brunch / tea / cocktails. So wonderfully thought out, the finest attention to detail and well, it was just the bloody DREAM.
Designed by the genius folks at Red Deer, you will find marble topped tables, fairy lights adorning the ceiling, freshly cut flowers, 1920’s style booths and more cocktails you can shake a stick at.
But let’s start with tea, shall we?
In possibly the sweetest little teapots ever.
We pondered the menu…
Inc. the bottomless brunch because YOLO…
I was so very tempted to go for the avo on toast, but I made a break for it and went for the pancakes instead. And I’m glad I did, look at these beauties…
They weren’t as American as I thought (thick ‘n’ fluffy) but with the caramelised banana, fresh fruit, ricotta and walnut, it was delish.
Matt chose the Italian baked eggs – I can always trust him to make a good brunch choice…
Wood roast potatoes, spinach, ‘nduja (?) tomato sauce and pizza bread.
The only downside was that the eggs were a slightly over done and the pizza bread was a little stale – but that doesn’t matter when it’s dunked in DELISH tomato-y sauce. Ooft.
OH and of course, the cocktails. My favourite was the Martello Rum Punch – Over-proof and dark rums, cherry bitters and fresh mint. ?
P.S Martello Hall is Canova’s sister in London Fields and also provides a corker of a brunch if you happen to be east.
We left feeling satisfied and a little tipsy… If ya can’t drink cocktails on a slow Sunday morning when can ya!?
I cannot wait to visit Canova Hall again, we have already started planning birthdays, big ole brunches and nights out (they sell pizza till close, genius). Also, if ya freelance or like to work from coffee shops – you can set yourself up here with free wi-fi and bottomless coffee for only £10 a day… How bloomin’ kewl is that?
I would absolutely recommend a visit to Canova Hall, I already know you will love it. Check them out here.
If you are on the hunt for more brunch in London (I always am ?) I would recommend the following…
Thank you SO much to the wonderful folk at Canova Hall for such a lovely experience in exchange for a review. Of course all love for brunch, tea and cocktails are all my own.
