This September, brunch cafes, restaurants and street vendors alike will flock to the Old Truman Brewery in the heart of the East End in celebration of Brunch Fest, London’s first ever brunch festival. Mirroring the delicious melting pot of cultures that reside within London, visitors of the festival will get the chance to try never-before-tasted cuisines from all around the globe courtesy of some of the best-known food vendors around. These include Zoe Adjonyoh’s West African ‘Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen’, Brixton Market’s BBQ extraordinaire ‘The Joint’, Kate Frobisher’s Australian and New Zealand-inspired ‘Urban Pantry’, North Hackney’s ‘Café Miami‘ whose dishes will provide enough #foodinspiration for the rest of the year, the if-you-haven’t-tried-them-yet-you-must-do-so-immediately Italian ‘Arancini Brothers‘, SW4’s ‘On Café‘ serving mouth-watering Asian Dim Sum brunch dishes, and many more.
To help wash down the food baby that at this point may well be apparent, The Pickle House will be serving their notorious Bloody Mary’s alongside Real Kombucha, The Gentlemen Baristas and We Are Tea to name a few. Visitors can also expect sweet treats courtesy of bakeries including Naked Dough and The Flour Station and a carefully curated Marketplace packed full of original and exciting brands sampling and selling treats to take home, so you can continue the festivities.
If the food, drink and treat-sampling offerings don’t satisfy your Brunch-related needs, the London Brunch Festival team have also put together an assortment of events not to be missed. Enjoy panel discussions, guided tastings, masterclasses, how-to’s and workshops that will be sure to hit the spot.
London’s inaugural Brunch Fest is teeming with innovation, and tickets starting at just £15 promise visitors will leave with a full stomach and an inspired mind. Go get your ticket to foodie heaven.
