* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Elegant styling – the venue is a former bank made over in the style of a European brasserie – and a handy position by Spitalfields Market help win brunch and business recommendations for this all-day venture. Its ratings are indifferent though, and it takes some flak for “poorly executed food that doesn’t merit the price charged”.

“Relaxed, casual and cool” all-day brasserie, right by Spitalfields Market, whose handsomely decorated, “bustling” quarters “get especially busy for weekend brunch”.

This all-day Spitalfields brasserie (no relation to the Out of Africa writer) offers a “very enjoyable” menu from brunch to dinner, with “entertaining and helpful service”. “The basement private dining area feels like a retro drinking den”.
