Three Places to Brekkie This Month

Dickie Fitz in Fitzrovia
If you follow me on Instagram (or any social media, for that matter) you will know that I have three main obsessions: puppies, flowers and, last but not least, brunch.

Brunch is the most important made-up meal of the day, and it's big business in London. After all, what else is there to do on a Sunday morning?

I had every intention to post this at the beginning of February but life got in the way, so here you have it: three brunch spots to try this month (okay, two brunch, one brekkie), three weeks later than planned.

Better late than never, right?

1. Andina
Andina Replensih menu

Inspired by traditional Peruvian cuisine, Martin Morales' menu at Andina boasts some of the most exotic, exciting brunch dishes in the city.

This year, Mr. Morales has collaborated with fitness buff Harry Jameson to create the Replenish menu, comprising an array of nourishing dishes to enjoy pre- or post-workout. Just the ticket after a Body by Frame session, standout plates include the steak with eggs and avo and the Claras Claritas Рan egg white omelette topped with sweet potato and amarillo chilli. My pick has to be the oat, quinoa and kiwicha granola with Greek yogurt, lucuma pur̩e and maca (pictured).

2.  Dickie Fitz (Brekkie not Brunch, but still darn tasty!)

A bright, shiny opening from the land Down Under, Dickie Fitz is a new, Instagram-friendly brasserie opening this month in Fitzrovia. With Sydney-born chef Matt Robinson at the helm, Dickie Fitz proves you can't beat an Aussie brekkie.

Though there is not a specific brunch offering just yet, the breakfast menu boasts ultra-healthy bowls such as the spiced fruit salad, laced with caraway, and slightly naughtier plates including zucchini fritters with grilled halloumi and the scrumptious-sounding buttermilk waffles, studded with salted peanuts and topped with fresh strawberry syrup. But, please note, this one actually only serves breakfast – NOT brunch. You can enjoy the aforementioned delights until 10.30am on weekdays, 11am on Saturdays – so it's one for the early risers.

3. Bernardi's
Brunch pizette at Bernardi's

Having spent a few summers in Italy, I have grown very fond of traditional Italian cooking. If you are in a similar boat, you'll be delighted to hear about the new weekend brunch menu at Bernardi's in Marylebone, where you can now enjoy pizza for breakfast until 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Pizette toppings include spinach with soft egg; n'duja with egg and basil; and devilish chocolate and hazelnut. Also worthy of note are the banana bread with lemon curd; scrambled eggs with Cornish crab and courgette fritters with avocado and tomato. Plus, you can have your brunch with some punch – make mine the rhubarb Bellini.
