With Japanese minimalism and a no laptop policy, Kuro Eatery is a relaxing place for a quiet contemplative breakfast in Notting Hill. Although Kuro means black in Japanese, the café is muted neutral tones and clean lines.

The menu has a Mediterranean slant, inspired by the Greek chef, with a small selection of carefully prepared dishes including homemade granola, poached eggs with spiced hollandaise, and a very tasty grilled cheese kimchi.

The coffee is smooth and balanced; carefully prepared and well-presented. It’s currently our favourite Notting Hill coffee.

Kuro also has a take-out coffee place next door and a bakery just around the corner on Bayswater Road. For a local Saturday morning ritual, grab a coffee and pastry and head down to the nearby Notting Hill Farmer’s Market.

Kuro Eatery / 5 Hillgate St, W8 7SP | Nearest Station – Notting Hill Gate | Reservationsonline | Hours – 8 am to 4 pm (Tuesday to Friday) / 9 am to 4 pm (Saturday & Sunday)

2 – BEAM

Beam is modern a brunch spot on Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill with a warm community feel, an inviting hubbub, and a smart interior energised by rusty orange accents.

If you’re looking for a Notting Hill brunch to feed a weekend hangover, Beam is the place. The Middle Eastern menu consists of huge platter-size portions with a mixed bag of mezze components including halloumi, filo parcels, sausage, hashbrowns, avocado, olives and feta. While it sometimes feels like they’ve had a fridge clean-out, you won’t leave Beam hungry and the service is efficient and friendly.

They serve All Press Coffee and they do some of the best coffee in Notting Hill.

Beam Notting Hill / 103 Westbourne Grove, W2 4UW | Nearest Stations – Bayswater, Royal Oak, Queensway | Reservations – No, walk-in only | Queue – Yes, on weekends, but you can scan the QR code to register your details so you don’t need to wait out front | Hours – 8 am to 5 pm (daily)


A relatively new option for brunch in Notting Hill, Sunday in Brooklyn hit the ground running with Brooklyn vibes delivered with London sensitivities. The smart interior with exposed brick and hanging plants is a cool spot to hang out on the weekends.

Their sandwich with scrambled eggs, Gochujang mayo and potato crisps is as scoff worthy as the Don Ruben Omelette with mole sauce. The Sunday pancakes with Hazelnut Praline and brown butter will have you dealing with the guilt for the rest of the day.   

Personally, I think the coffee is a little overpriced for the quality but that certainly doesn’t distract from this great brunch option.

Sunday In Brooklyn / 98 Westbourne Grove, W2 5RU | Nearest Stations – Bayswater, Royal Oak, Queensway | Reservationsonline | Hours – 9 am to 4:30 pm (Monday to Friday) / 8:30 am to 5 pm (Saturday) / 8:30 am to 8 pm (Sunday)


Tab X Tab, the semi-industrial-looking hang-out on the Queensway end of Westbourne Grove, is a trendy café with polished concrete, a semi-open kitchen and a selection of coffee-related products for sale.

The small, well-crafted menu focuses on tasty bites such as an excellent Chicken Katsu sandwich with celeriac remoulade, and eggs on toast with creamy mushrooms. For a smaller breakfast option, their house granola is world-class, or you can grab one of their pastries before they all go.

The coffee is by Kiss The Hippo Roasters and it is crafted to perfection behind a concrete bar with very serious-looking equipment.

Tab X Tab / 14-16 Westbourne Grove, W2 5RH | Nearest Stations – Royal Oak, Bayswater, Queensway | Reservationsonline | Hours – 8 am to 4 pm (Monday to Thursday) / 8 am to 5 pm (Friday) / 9 am to 5 pm (Saturday & Sunday)


Farm Girl is a bright dog-friendly café hidden behind a small courtyard just off Portobello Road in the heart of Notting Hill. The relaxed warehouse feel of the space, lined with green tiles, is extended to the food which has a focus on healthy and no-fuss sustainability.

The all-day menu has a selection of inspired granola / fruit / yoghurt combos as well as stacked pancakes, fluffy scrambled eggs and internationally inspired creations. The Seoul Eggs with broccoli, kimchi, feta and chilli oil is both zesty and comforting in one soulful bowl.

They do an excellent Australian-style coffee and ventured into new territory with the Rose Latte – a coffee blended with rose water.

Farm Girl Notting Hill / 59a Portobello Rd, W11 3DB | Nearest Stations – Notting Hill Gate | Reservations – No, walk-ins only | Queues – Yes, especially on weekends | Hours – 8:30 am to 5 pm (Monday to Friday) / 9 am to 6 pm (Saturday & Sunday)


Eggbreak is a popular and often very busy, brunch spot in Notting Hill. Set in a converted townhouse, several dining spaces are filled with a homely, pre-loved feel with mismatched chairs, well-worn tables and relaxing music.

They have a varied Middle Eastern-inspired menu with flavoured yoghurts spicing up several dishes. The eggs benedict with tahini hollandaise, aubergine and cream cheese is rich and delicious, and the Mexican Omelette is full of zest. They also have a great selection of sweet treats.  

Coffee is by Origin Roastery which is based out of Porthleven in Cornwall.  

Eggbreak Notting Hill / 30 Uxbridge St, W8 7TA | Nearest Station – Notting Hill Gate | Reservations – No, walk-in only | Queue – Yes, on weekends | Hours – 8 am to 3 pm (Monday to Friday) / 8 am – 5 pm (Saturday & Sunday)

7 – HAYA

Haya is a neighbourhood brunch spot in Notting Hill serving a delightfully different brunch with Israeli influences. Exposed brick and concrete walls, modern art, and dappled sunlight give it a warm, relaxed vibe.

In typical Israeli fashion, the brunch options are ideal for sharing. The fried halloumi with honey is delicious and decadent; the smoky Baba ghanoush packed with punch, and the shakshuka rich and satisfying. The winner, however, is their excellent homemade bread.

Coffee is disappointing and not really a focus, but they have a great selection of cold-pressed juices which are a better option. For great coffee in the area, read our guide to the best coffee in Notting Hill.

Haya Notting Hill / 184A Kensington Park Rd, W11 2ES | Nearest Station – Notting Hill Gate, Westbourne Park | Hours – 12 pm to 10:30 pm (Monday to Friday) / 11 am to 10 pm (Saturday & Sunday)


Occupying a corner position with large windows and a bright interior, Granger & Co have been dishing up crafty food to boisterous crowds since Australian chef, Bill Granger, opened his first outpost in London. 

While they are quickly being overshadowed by newer kids on the block, the weekend queue snaking down Westbourne Grove is a testament to the enduring popularity of the place.

Acclaim was swift for their signature scrambled eggs – a luxurious plate indulgence; but the rest of the Australian-inspired brunch options are fresh and seasonal. Kimchi melts and healthy grain bowls are complimented by a full Aussie.

These days, however, some of the dishes need to be shared in order to gather enough tasty morsels. The corn fritters which once came with a punchy chili jam are now paired with fairly lackluster under-roasted tomatoes. The chili egg roll with mango pickle, however, is unbeatable.

Coffee production is mastered by the experts behind the large marble bar featuring a very serious-looking cold-drip filter.  

Granger & Co Notting Hill / 175 Westbourne Grove, W11 2SB | Nearest Stations – Notting Hill Gate & Bayswater | Reservations – No, walk-ins only | Queues – Yes, get there early on weekends | Hours – 7 am to 10:30 pm (Monday to Saturday) / 8 am to 9:30 pm (Sunday)


The Electric is a Notting Hill Brunch institution. Set in a cavern-like hideout with cosy red booths and a diner-style open kitchen, it’s the perfect covert location for Notting Hill celebrities.

Fry-up classics dominate the breakfast menu, which switches over to brunch at 12 pm offering a wider selection of dishes including an excellent vegan burger and decadent waffles.

After several years of going to the Electric, the avocado on toast with poached eggs is still our go-to, but it also gets our vote for the best classic Full English in Notting Hill.

The coffee from Grind Roastery is one of my favourite coffees in Notting Hill. It’s not a bad idea to have one with breakfast, then get a takeaway as you stroll around Portobello Market.

Electric Diner / 191 Portobello Rd, W11 2ED | Nearest Station – Notting Hill Gate | Reservationsonline | Hours – 8 am to 12 am (Monday to Wednesday) / 8 am – 1 am (Tursday) / 8 am to 2 am (Friday & Saturday) / 8 am – 11 pm (Sunday)


Henderson Bar & Kitchen in the Laslett – a smart boutique hotel in a Georgian terrace house on a quiet residential street – is a stylish Notting Hill brunch option.

The small modern dining room is a lovely place to eat, but the heated outdoor terrace overlooking the regal architecture of Notting Hill is a great setting for brunch.

Breakfast spots are prioritised for hotel guests, so it may be difficult to get a spot. But, from 12pm brunch on the terrace is open to non-guests and it’s the perfect start to a slow weekend. The menu has a wide selection of interesting dishes including substantial salads, burgers, and various forms of benedict.

Henderson Bar & Kitchen / 8 Pembridge Gardens, W2 4DU | Nearest Station – Notting Hill Gate | Reservationsonline for brunch | Breakfast hours – 7 am to 11 am (Monday to Friday) / 7:30 am to 11 am (Saturday & Sunday) | Brunch Hours – 12 pm – 3 pm (daily)

11 – AKUB

Akub is a contemporary Palestinian restaurant spread across four levels of a Victorian townhouse on the backstreets of Notting Hill. As a relative newcomer on the Notting Hill brunch scene, they’re serving up an innovative dish in a cool space.

The décor is soft muted tones with natural wood and exposed brick. On the second floor, escape to a courtyard illusion with a large olive tree and glass roof.

Traditional flavours are presented with love and care by Akub’s acclaimed kitchen. Try a selection of dishes with punchy zaatar, smooth labneh, spicy green chill, and slow-coked tomatoes and you won’t be disappointed.

Akub / 27 Uxbridge St, W8 7TQ | Nearest Station – Notting Hill Gate | Reservationsonline | Hours – 12 pm to 3 pm (Tuesday to Friday) / 11 am to 3 pm (Saturday) / 11 am to 4 pm (Sunday) / Closed Monday

For a cosy, homely brunch in Notting Hill, Bluebelles of Portobello offers a great selection of sweet and savoury bites in a relaxed well-worn setting. Located on the Golborne Road end of Portobello, it’s in a great location to enjoy the less-touristy side of Notting Hill.  

The menu spans everything from bowls to buns; toasts to classic brunch dishes. They have a good selection of vegetarian options including a veggie stack with a crispy potato rosti, fried halloumi, avocado and mushroom, and a zesty green breakfast with guacamole and feta.

They also have salads and sandwiches if you find yourself in this part of Notting Hill later in the day; the perfect time to stroll the Golborne Road market.

Bluebelles of Portobello / 320 Portobello Rd, W10 5RU | Nearest Station – Westbourne Park | Reservations – No, walk-ins only | Queue – Generally not too long | Hours – 9 am to 3:30 pm (daily)


The cute and kitsch Lowry & Baker has an element of originality that is sometimes lacking in other Notting Hill brunch spots. A non-formulaic approach to delivering a classic breakfast puts you among a well-worn space with all the charm of Nana’s kitchen.

The homestyle menu has a good balance of options including homemade granola, decadent pancakes with maple cream cheese and a berry compote, through to healthier options with avocado a key feature. The benedict was delightfully fresh and full of life and the sourdough toast delicious.

Coffee by Monmouth rounds out breakfast in this very cool yet understated café, while the 70s music filled the space with a great energy.

Lowry & Baker / 339 Portobello Rd, W10 5SA | Nearest Station – Westbourne Park | Reservations – No, walk-in only | Queues – No | Hours – 8 am to 4 pm (Thursday to Tuesday) \ closed Wednesday.


The Golborne Deli & Wine Store provides the fuel that stokes the vibrant community energy in the eclectic heart of Notting Hill, just off Portobello Road.

With friendly service, a street-side terrace surrounded by the flea market, and quality produce, Golborne Deli gives you a taste of the true local experience.

Celebrate their passion for food with one of the best brunches in Notting Hill. Made from ingredients handpicked from the deli, the menu moves from the deliciously admirable (avocado and feta on toast), through to the necessary: a hangover-busting big breakfast in both traditional and vegetarian varieties.

They also have a fantastic lunch menu and drop-in wine tastings where you can sample their thoughtful selection of big names and small artisanal producers.

Golborne Deli & Wine Store / 100-102 Golborne Rd, W10 5PS | Nearest Station – Westbourne Park | Reservations – No, walk-in only | Queues – Weekends only | Hours – 7:30am to 7pm Monday – Sunday | Wine Store – 11 am to 8 pm (Monday – Sunday)


We’ve lived in Notting Hill for many years and it’s safe to safe we’ve tried every brunch place, at least once. Here are a few you may want to consider, that didn’t quite make it onto our list.


The original Ottolenghi in London still produces top-quality Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes, however, the Notting Hill deli is now take-away only. The daily menu is available from 11 am each day.


Daylesford Organic is a popular cafe and deli in Notting Hill with a chic vibe and a beautiful display of seasonal produce to take home. Many dishes are sourced from their own farm in the Cotswolds.


L’Eto is a classy eatery with clever breakfast classics such as an eggs benedict on a mushroom puree, a perfectly crisp hashbrown, and fragrant basil oil. The service is a little on the professional side, but their exquisitely decorated cakes are hard to go past.


The Tin Shed is a lovely neighbourhood space which is often considered a hidden gem when it comes to brunch in Notting Hill. In our opinion, the food has slipped a little recently, but there’s not denying it has charm.


Buvette is a French-inspired cafe with an intimate atmosphere and small plates. They have restaurants in several destinations across the world including Paris, New York, Tokyo and Mexico City. Unfortunately, the Notting Hill version doesn’t live up to the others.
