A Kiwi-type cafe in Seven Dials (‘kopapa’ is Maori for ‘gathering’), its weekend brunch has been extended to 9.30am-4pm. Try the ricotta fritters with avocado, roast grape salad and pistachio caramel sauce for £8.90.
This “kind-of Jewish deli with cocktails” in Covent Garden is the perfect spot to hole up on a wintry afternoon. The New York-style menu (meatloaf; pastrami sarnies) is complemented by US-style service. Mains from £6.
The Breakfast Club
There’s really no excuse for missing out on this London institution, serving Yank-style brunch (think fry-ups served with pancakes and bacon and banana French toast) to an Eighties soundtrack. From about £8.
