I haven’t spent much time in Brixton but my friend Lauren is constantly raving about it, so when she suggested brunch at Canova Hall, I jumped at the opportunity.
The first thing you notice when you walk into Canova Hall is how (surprisingly) big the place is. The hints of old-school charm are brought to life by the new-school bustle of Brixton residents.
You can just as easily imagine brunching there on a Saturday morning as you can sipping a glass of wine on a Sunday evening.
I ordered the “Big Bacon Sandwich”, which comes with bacon, fried eggs, roast mushrooms, tomatoes, triple cooked chips and nduja ketchup. I was feeling pretty rough so asked them to remove everything but the bacon and eggs! (please don’t judge me *Chris Brown voice*)
Lauren had the avo toast, which she wolfed down before I could get a pic! I lie, I was too distracted by my bacon to remember to take any.
However, you can’t go to brunch and not have pancakes right? So we ordered a portion to share. I was definitely more impressed with the pancakes than the bacon sarnie (*gasps* I know, I’m shocked too)
All in all I wasn’t blown away by their food but absolutely loved the vibe of the place. I’d definitely come back for a drink.
…And off we went to explore some other Brixton spots…
There she is! Say hi to Lauren, my camera woman for the day! (she had no choice tbh)
Brixton definitely has many more gems, and the best Pasteis de Nata I’ve had outside Lisbon! Can’t wait to share more great spots with you guys.
Ok, bye now!
