If you’re too tired to get up for breakfast but too hungry to hold off until lunchtime, brunch is the way to go. Everyone loves a good brunch. More often than not, it’s a chance to indulge in some less than healthy food, have a mindless gossip or quick catch up with some friends and drink one too many cups of coffee. Here are our favourite spots for a charming weekend brunch in the Richmond borough.
The Original Maids of Honour
288 Kew Road, Richmond, TW9 3DU
The Original Maids of Honour serve up a range hot and cold mid-morning refreshments, available from 9am to 11:15am (8:30am to 11:15am on weekends). Be sure to head in after 10am if you’re planning on enjoying brunch, as opposed to breakfast, alright?! They’re known for their excellent service and even better food, with popular items including Eggs Benedict, Scotch Pancakes and their traditional Full English. Of course, they’ve also got tea and scones and other sweet pastry treats. Check out their Morning Refreshment menu here.
Never knew scones can taste sooo good, they are super tender and moist little lovelies. This vintage cottage shop has been around since 1860, reminds me of my countryside road trip in Cornwall with @suansuk and the lake house Cameron highlands with hubby❤️ #theoriginalmaidsofhonour ##londonfoodie #londonbreakfast #sconesjamclottedcream #englishbreakfast
By The Bridge
424 Richmond Road, Twickenham, TW1 2EB
This cosy, Art Deco-inspired cafe is a real gem. Known to locals for having the “best takeaway coffee” and the “best breakfast in town”, you’d be bonkers not to give By The Bridge a try – if you’re on a quest to find the best brunch in the borough, be sure to stop by for a taste of their delectable French Toast or hearty Breakfast Wrap. Head to their website for all the information you need.
The Albert Deli
2 Worple Way, Richmond, TW10 6DF
Now, if you’re looking for a place with choice, this is your place to go. Winner of the 2013 Deli of the Year London award, The Albert Deli is known for fresh, delicious food, friendly service and a lively atmosphere. From the ‘Full Albert’ (two free-range fried eggs, two Wicks Manor sausages, two bacon, roasted tomato, pan-fried mushrooms & toast) to the Belgian Waffles, Boiled Egg and Sausage Butty, come prepared for your mind to boggle and your mouth to water. More info, including their menu, available here.
Pickle & Rye
31 Sheen Lane, East Sheen, SW14 8AB
Their tagline is “American. Homemade. Goodness.” and that is precisely what’s on offer. Serving up some authentic American breakfast and brunch options, such as Buttermilk Pancakes and Scrambled Eggs New York style, this unique little eatery has become a staple in East Sheen’s food and drink scene. It’s evident in every dish how much care, passion and precision is implemented by the team at Pickle & Rye and you’re bound to fall in love with the warm, friendly ambiance, but be careful – there’s a risk you could become a regular!

The Press Room
29 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 3SZ
For some people, brunch is more of a social occasion as opposed to an opportunity to enjoy a full-blown meal. If that’s the case for you, we’ve got just the place – The Press Room. The coffee is perfected, the atmosphere is calm and the people-watching possibilities are endless. They’ve got an incredible range of hot and cold drinks, specialising in the art of good coffee, and even have a small array of pastries and cakes if you get a little peckish. All the ingredients you need for a sublime Saturday morning! Find out more here.
