London, DalstonBrunswick East, a hidden gem

Australian run Brunswick East is hands down one of my favorite brunch spots in East London.

It’s a bustling haven with instagrammable breakfasts and some of the most delicious and interesting brunches in the capital. It’s seasonal, local and organic and is a hidden gem in the heart of Dalston.

It’s tucked away in the corner of Gillet Street Square and the tables spill out into the courtyard during warmer months – you usually have to be quite savvy about grabbing a table in the sunshine! They have now expanded their inside space, which they share with Yoke Yoga Studio, making it a year round Glowcation.

The little things

Every time I’ve been to Brunswick East, I have left feeling glowing with satisfaction. The food is definitely a show stopper and eating outside makes it even more worth the visit. There’s also free wi-fi.

The green juice test

Their menu doesn’t offer a green juice but they do have a ‘Super Green Smoothie’ with avocado, spinach, banana & matcha, a ‘Cleanse’ juice with carrot, lemon and ginger and a ‘Fuel’ juice with beetroot, apple and celery.

I went for a ‘Cold Buster’ hot juice which was lemon, ginger, turmeric & pepper and the perfect Winter pick me up.

What we ate

Admittedly, every time I’ve been to Brunswick East I have ordered the Cauliflower Toast (plus I always go with a friend so I can sneak some of theirs too).

I ordered the Cauliflower Toast again… it’s insanely good –  a wonderful stack of  homemade Cauliflower Bread with caramelised onion jam, avocado, a poached egg and drizzled with sunflower tahini.

My friend went for the Autumn Hash which resembled a giant hash brown loaded with a fried egg and equally delicious!

We drank our way through a chai latte with oat milk, a freshly-squeezed orange juice, the cold buster juice and finished off with a heavenly vegan snickers bar. I couldn’t help myself.

What else?

Brunswick East also do a Yoga Brunch on a Sunday with Yoke Studios – an hour and a half of yoga and then a delicious brunch. They have also opened a second space in the Haggerston Railway Arches.

The bill

Cauliflower Toast  £9.50
Autumn Hash  £11.50
Cold Buster Juice  £3.50
Orange Juice  £3.80
Snickers Bar  £3.50

What made us glow?

Always the Cauliflower Toast!
