Brunch in Notting Hill

I have been to London on numerous occasions, but never before had I been to Notting Hill.

I was aware that it was a very pretty place and it was on my London to-do list but I never realised just how incredible this little corner of London would be.

Distant from constant stream of iconic red buses down Oxford street and the non stop city life of the capital, lies Notting Hill.

Walking up the tube station stairs, I felt a million miles away from the huge expanse of the city that you can see whilst standing on The Millennium Bridge. Notting Hill is a humble area that strikes me as being much more personable that the rest of London. Don’t get me wrong, I love the hustle and bustle of the city, but I didn’t feel so much like a tiny fish in a huge ocean here. Notting Hill has a very welcoming and inviting character and I was instantly drawn in to this little pocket of colour and human life.

The coloured houses and shops that line the street invite intrigue and curiosity and it feels as though there is so much to discover here.

We went for Brunch at a gorgeous cafe called Gail’s Artisan BakeryThe rustic bare red brick walls and the warm, yellow lights made it feel so modern and stylish yet very cosy at the same time. I tucked into the most delicious hot chocolate; rich, chocolatey, decadent and oh so good. I ate the smashed avocado on toast which was beautiful. Everyone else’s food looked just as amazing. Brunch is the perfect excuse for an extended meal so I had a great time catching up with some very good friends. It was the perfect day.

If you’ve not been to visit Notting Hill yet, make sure you add it to your London list of things to do. I am sure you will not regret it.

    I have been to London three times now but never to Notting Hill. It looks gorgeous! I will have to visit here when I’m next in the city. I love how personal and friendly it sounds too : ) xx

    Though I’ve visited Notting Hill a fair few times, I’m yet to enjoy a brunch there! The coloured buildings really are very pretty and that french toast looks delicious 🙂

    Ah this is such a dreamy post, Sarah! I always envy the Notting Hill regulars. If I ever visit London again (which I hope I do), this will definitely be the first place on my list. So much beauty x
