Comprising of breakfast dishes as well as the full a la carte selection of lunch dishes, expect very sumptuous of food for those rather special brunch occasions at The Delaunay.
Flesh & Buns
Flesh & Buns, London's first restaurant dedicated to steamed buns and Japanese drinking and food, located within the bustling Seven Dials area in Covent Garden, Flesh and Buns is now a pretty excellent choice when it comes to weekend brunch too. Love those fluffy steamed buns with a variety of filling? Cocktail on arrival? Chips, dips and edamame? Not to mention dessert and most importantly unlimited Prosecco, red wine or white wine?

Asides from their wonderfully moreish menu you can kick your afternoon off with bottomless mimosas, Proseccos or gently spiced Marys. Jar Kitchen's mantra is "we believe there are a few things in life that simply can't be beaten. Good food is one of them". Here, here!
One of the great things about Jar Kitchen's bottomless brunch is that you can switch drinks throughout, therefore, not limiting yourself. Winning.
You have the table 2 hours from the start of your reservation with a friendly reminder 15 minutes before they need the table back. So if you're after attentive staff who will keep your glass topped up for the whole two hours, but you're after more indulgence, then order the doughnuts to finish, with salted caramel and rhubarb dips.
So there you have it, what better way to kick off the weekends and refuel your shopping energy than to stop and indulge in an afternoon eatery delight, which you can find throughout London.
