London brunch review - Sunday. Some places surprise you. The first time I actually read about “Sunday” was in the Evening Standard on the tube several months ago. In a small bit in a side column “Sunday” was mentioned only with its N1 address and a phone number. I took a picture of it to remember – just in case. And this was a very wise decision to make, because my plan of action to google it, look at their website and – yay – find out everything about it just failed. It failed for a simple reason… there is no website. Yes, I can hear you say “What?” with this surprised look on your face, eyes wide open and question marks everywhere. Yes, apparently London still offers a few spots which are not all over the Internet and social media universe. This made this brunch spot even more interesting for me.

 

I rang a couple of days in advance to make a booking, but no, there is a walk-in policy for brunch at weekends, which doesn’t really matter since you don’t wait longer than 10 minutes. Situated very closely to Overground station Caledonian Road & Barnsbury I would call “Sunday” a pure neighbourhood café. It is small, it is cosy and it invites people to spend their lazy weekend mornings there with a newspaper sipping one coffee after another. The big mirror on the wall helps in two ways – the café seems to be bigger and it also facilitates people watching during you are sucking the straw of your spicy Bloody Mary which is being served in a jar.

 

The service is super friendly and they hardly miss when your face expression changes from satisfied to craving for another drink or dessert. And believe me you want to order more. No matter whether you stick with the more breakfast like dishes, i.e. granola, toast or croissants or you enjoy the egg, chorizo and pancake dishes or you go even a step further and have a proper lunch (the burger looked absolutely sundaylicious!) the high for your taste buds is guaranteed and your visual stimulation gets a kick as well.

 

We go for the “Huevos rancheros with spicy black beans & chorizo” (which I accidently named wrong twice (!) on Instagram, but honestly who cares when you have a colourful picture out of the category ‘Foodporn’ right in front of you?) and the “Corn fritters, kiln-smoked salmon, avocado, tomato, crème fraiche”. I also add one poached egg to maximize the delightfulness. Every bite is Heaven and although we are quite full after silence has taken over and conversation has to be put off for a while we both plea for a chocolate brownie with whipped sour cream and a double espresso. This is the perfect finish – soft, sticky and chocolaty topped off with a strong coffee blend. Is there anything else you can ask for?

 

Do you also want to be all smiles next weekend? Then I highly recommend – go for brunch, London!
