Sparrow London brunch

Served on the weekends, Sparrow’s brunch is somewhat next-level. They don’t just serve pancakes, they serve Sri-Lankan appam pancakes. Their eggs Benedict comes with extra-thick hand-cut bacon. Their granola comes with ewe’s milk yoghurt. And it’s all fantastic.

Details: Bottomless booze? No | All you can eat? No | Set menu? No
