The best of boozy brunch in Brixton

 

Brixton is known for some of the quirkiest places in town. It’s David Bowie’s birthplace, it’s home to a restaurant staffed entirely by prisoners, and of course Electric Avenue; aptly named as it was the first street in the area to get electric lights.

Located just a couple of miles south of the river and oozing bohemian vibes, Brixton is overflowing with art, culture, music, some of the best street food in London and some of the best brunch spots too.

Brixton houses an array of delightful venues that will cure your hangover; here you’ll find everything from healthy options, to honey-jerk chicken wings, to wood-fired artisan pizzas. If you’re looking to visit Brixton to absorb the surroundings (and plenty of mimosas), we’ve selected our favourite bottomless brunch spots to help make the decision a little easier.

Three Little Birds

Three Little Birds is a Jamaican-inspired restaurant & rum bar with a bottomless brunch option serving unlimited Prosecco, Rum Punch and Jamaican Mary. During the weekend, they serve their two-hour bottomless brunch alongside authentic Jamaican dishes such as ital stew and curry goat with rice and peas.

A unique take on Caribbean-style dining, Three Little Birds allows you to share plates with your party to sample their range of varied and delicious flavours. However, they update their menu a few times a year to liven things up so you might want to visit often to make the most of the dishes. What’s more, since 2017 they’ve been supporting a worthwhile local cause, adding a discretionary £1 to diners’ bills and buying food for Norwood & Brixton FoodBank with the money raised each month.

You’ll find Three Little Birds located in the heart of Brixton but if that’s fully booked, thankfully they have another restaurant down the road in Clapham.

Price: Bottomless brunch £35 – two dishes, £40 – three dishes

Cattivo

We love Cattivo, it’s a hidden gem. And at only £26pp for a two hour bottomless boozy brunch it’s an absolute bargain. Based a stone’s throw from the station on Ferndale Road and set over two levels, Cattivo is a stylish restaurant and cocktail bar sitting across from its sister, Canova Hall. All of their Italian-inspired food is extravagant and homemade, with options like ‘nduja and taleggio arancini, truffled scrambled eggs, and squash and sage frittata. You can’t go wrong with the house fried chicken though, they even have a vegan version. Get ready for a big night because Cattivo has a DJ, a cocktail club downstairs and a late night license until 2am every weekend.
