Boozy Brunching at Balans

My top pick for today is Balans Soho Society, located in Kensington (187 Kensington High St, London, W8 6SH) and Soho (60-62 Old Compton Street, London, W1D 4UG). Breakfast is served between 8am and 12pm everyday and brunch is served from 8am to 5pm on weekends. George opted for The Soho Full English (£9) whilst I had 2 eggs any way (£5). My eggs were poached and cooked to perfection, accompanied with bacon (£2) and avocado (£2). We were greeted by a friendly & attentive waiter, festive music and an extensive brunch menu that any hungover party-goer would die for! Balans offer “remedial action” in the form of Bloody Mary’s (£7.50) and Bucks Fizz (£7.50) and plenty of other cocktails and “hair-of-the-dog” tipples to take your fancy. After a night full of Sauvignon Blanc this place is a haven, and upon a quick scan of the room we realised that we weren’t the only ones who had come here to seek aid from the night before. As Balans’ website says, “brunch without prosecco is just a sad late breakfast.”


The food was all cooked beautifully, not an overcooked egg or fatty piece of bacon in sight. Balans also offer sweeter options such as French toast and pancakes. Check out the menu here:
