The Kingston Brunch Guide
The Kingston Brunch Guide
Come rain or shine, the foodie havens of Kingston await. Offering ideal spaces for al fresco brunching through the warmer months, and cosy hideouts when the skies aren’t as bright, there’s something to satisfy those cravings here. Whether you’re in need of a celebratory midday meal, or a little pot of sunshine to take home post-croquette, these are the best Kingston brunches.
WORDS: CONNOR STURGES
One for coffee snobs, both aspiring and practising, Fortunella is a haven for lovers of the bean. Savour coffee made from Allpress, a London-based coffee roaster and espresso specialist established in New Zealand. Pair your flat white with a generous slab of coffee cake before your amble along the river.
A chain brasserie with all the charm of an independent outlet, Browns is best for celebrations. Come for the Smoked Pancetta Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple Syrup and stay for the bubbles; enjoy unlimited prosecco, bloody marys and bellinis, or step up your boozy brunch with endless Moët & Chandon Impérial Champagne for a little extra.
Haché Riverside Social
Soak up the sunshine at this popular riverside spot, where thirsty brunchers battle for a coveted outdoor spot along the river in the summer months. Choose two courses and sip on bottomless prosecco, Aperol spritzes, and bloody marys – dishes on offer include Chargrilled Halloumi, Arancini, and the mighty Haché Full English.
Cakewalk Patisserie & Coffee House
When the Patisserie Chef in charge has been creating cakes for the Four Seasons Hotel for almost two decades, you can rest assured your sweet slice will have some oomph. While the cakes at Cakewalk Patisserie & Coffee House may steal the show, their lunch options are just as noteworthy. Expect simple, organic, and homemade produce you can enjoy with all the family.
Best for boozy brunches with class, Côte’s offering is something to celebrate. Opt for a classic brunch dish or light main (Moules Frites for the win) and enjoy your choice of a hot drink or juice, plus a glass of Baron de Marck Champagne.
Warm interiors and walls filled with lovingly homemade produce bring the people of Kingston into this little slice of Portugal almost subconsciously. For an alternative brunch experience, order small plates of croquettes and traditional pastries, before scouring the shelves and departing with your own jar or packet of sunshine.
