Best for: An impressive Bloody Mary menu
With its modern furnishings and decadent morning menu, 45 Jermyn Street is a fantastic location for a Mayfair brunch which exudes glamour and sophistication. Owned by Fortnum & Mason and with a central St. James location, the restaurant has established itself as a serious contender in the ranks of Mayfair business brunches, owing to its indulgent dishes and immaculate service.
You and your brunch guests will be greeted with a diverse menu which prioritises classic favourites alongside healthier options. Not to mention, the extensive Bloody Mary menu, which offers six variations of the traditional brunch cocktail including a non-alcoholic option and a Japanese-inspired Hinomaru Mary, makes 45 Jermyn Street the ideal location for a long brunch to discuss strategy or when celebrations are in order.
Best for: Duck-centred dishes
Duck & Waffle Local is the more accessible version of its sister restaurant located in Heron Tower, London, but you can expect similarly delicious food and drink regardless. For a more relaxed setting, this restaurant offers a bright and modern dining space, and is a quick solution to a pre or post-meeting brunch in Mayfair with colleagues or clients. Situated in St. James’ Market, you’ll be able to enjoy the central location and explore the city after you’ve eaten.
Unsurprisingly, the menu places duck front and centre with brunch dishes including the decadent Duck & Waffle special with confit leg, fried duck egg and mustard maple syrup as well as a tempting braised duck eggs benedict option. Sweeter options include fudge & brownie buttermilk waffles and a selection of freshly baked pastries, all of which can be ordered almost instantly from the bar as you arrive.
Best for: Modern European cuisine
There are few Mayfair restaurants which enjoy the same reputation as breakfast and brunch at The Wolseley, making it an excellent option for showcasing the best that London has to offer to for colleagues or clients. Located next door to The Ritz, the atmosphere is professional and sophisticated, creating the ideal ambience for a business brunch that stretches long into the afternoon.
The breakfast menu is served until 11:30 am, after which an all-day café menu is available. As such, post-breakfast time you can continue to take advantage of delicious egg brunches served in several ways, including a number of glorious omelette variations, alongside a selection of soups, salads, sandwiches or crustacea and caviar for meetings which require a little extra indulgence or celebration.
Café and wine bar
Best for: Low-key coffee and pastries
Created by master sommelier Xavier Rousset, Comptoir Café and Wine daylights as a café and moonlights as a wine bar. As such, it’s the ideal location for any business brunch in Mayfair, allowing you to continue a relaxed morning meeting into the afternoon and beyond. This welcoming setting offers a low-key, casual atmosphere with a rustic interior reminiscent of provincial France.
Brunch options include a classic viennoiserie served alongside a high-quality cup of coffee, which is also available for takeaway if it’s intended to fuel a busy morning in the office as opposed to a sit-down brunch. The brunch menu also includes tempting light bites such as smoked haddock and watercress omelettes, with an extensive wine menu to accompany your brunch when the time comes.
Best for: Quick, informal brunches
Popina’s Mayfair eatery is a more casual option for a business brunch, but nevertheless boasts a mouth-watering menu available daily from 8 am until 3 pm. Inspired by trips to the market in her youth, owner Isidora Popovic prioritises local seasonal produce to ensure a deliciously fresh menu for brunch patrons. Seating areas are available, but Popina’s provides an excellent solution should you wish to bring brunch back to the office, with cakes and sweet pastries available over the counter, alongside delicious coffee.
Dishes available on the menu are varied, ranging from traditional egg-based brunches such as soft scramble to more unique egg dishes such as Popina’s Ranchos with lime guacamole. Sweet and savoury toasts are also tempting with toppings including peanut butter, banana and toffee or citrusy avocado depending on you and your guests' predilections.
Whether you’re searching for quick supplies for a mid-morning meeting, or a longer brunch to encourage networking or elaborate on client strategies, the Mayfair brunch scene offers an impressive range of choices.
