London: Brunch and Bubbles

Brunch and unlimited prosecco to start your weekend madam? - I'm in!

Bottomless Bunches are taking over London, and what a fabulous idea they are! Kick-start your weekend with glass upon glass of the fizzy stuff, or cure the Sunday hangover with a chilled glass of unending bubbles - what's not to love! And on the Saturday morning of my little London trip we decided that a bottomless brunch was the way forward. 

We popped along to The Jam Tree in Clapham, in the heart of the Old Town. It's a really lovely vibrant and colourful place, big, bright and airy and ideal for whiling away a couple of hours over toast and prosecco. And I definitely want to head back at some point for their 'Jammy Cocktails'.


As soon as we sat down we had the prosecco ordered - well as it was bottomless we wanted to get started! The lovely waiter simply delivered our first bottle to the table as we inspected in the brunch menu. 

They do all classics. But I went for Eggs Benedict and my sister opted for Avocado and Poached Eggs on Toast. Both were just perfect and hit the brunch spot.


Now the best part about bottomless brunch has to be the unlimited prosecco - I'm not going to lie to you! You're given two hours at your table and we managed to sip our way through a bottle, or two, and were decidedly giggly by the end. It was such a luxurious way to while away the morning.

We spend the next few hours wandering around the pretty boutiques in Clapham, picking up knick knacks and birthday outfits. 

By the time we got back to Balham we were feeling a little nibbly so headed into Brickwood, Balham. 

It's bustling and buzzing little cafe, which such a good reputation you may have to wait a little for a table, but this just gives you time to drool over the homemade baking on display! The shack-like interior is really 'London cool' and it had such a great atmosphere, everyone packed in discussing weekend plans.

I mean just look at the monster scone! It was immense! (But the perfect accompaniment to a delicious chai latte) 

Snooze the rest of the day away, before you get ready to get all dolled-up and head out for Saturday night gins!
