Londoners are in the grip of a passionate love affair with brunch that shows no sign of abating, but with so many options out there, where oh where to go? The Resident grazes it’s way around the capital to bring you London’s bottomless brunches…
1 Dokke, St Katherine Dock
Dokke is our new favourite hangout. Hidden away among the boutique shops, waterways and fabulous yachts is this dinky, charming eatery that might just serve London’s most beautiful brunch. Dokke is luxury private island specialist Neil Wager’s first foray into restaurant ownership, and as well as the chic, relaxed, my-home-in-the-Med atmosphere he has created in the restaurant-cum-living room, his Asian-fusion menu is a thing of beauty. Try his popular staples like Crispy Potato with kimchi and black pudding, Cloud Egg with crispy kale, avocado and chorizo, or Supergreen Fritatta with kale, edamame, chilli, avocado and fig chutney. The Dokke Breakfast – which masquerades as sort of run-of-the-mill fry up with sausage, egg, bacon, avocado, Wapping Sourdough toast and cherry tomato – is absolutely glorious, too. And they’re all right up there with London’s most Instagrammable dishes. Dining on the waterside terrace on a sunny afternoon here really is the life. Dokke’s bottomless brunch with unlimited prosecco or bloody Mary is served on Saturday and Sunday for £35pp.

2 Bōkan, Canary Wharf
Bōkan, with its beautifully interior designed restaurant, bar and rooftop terrace, is quite the destination. Occupying the 37th, 38th and 39th floors of the Novotel Canary Wharf, those 360° views are really something, so if you’re looking to impress your date, then this is the one. The indulgent three-course bottomless prosecco brunch menu is frankly wonderful. Created by Head Chef Aurélie Altemaire, it features starters like tiger prawn tempura (excellent) and seabream and smoked salmon tartare with yuzu, coconut milk and mango (off-the-scale good). You can even, technically, have steak for breakfast, with the English grass fed beef skirt for two to share, or opt for crispy egg’s royale with hot smoked salmon. And then there’s dessert. The homemade Nutella and whipped mascarpone waffle is a delight, as is the Paris-Brest (choux pastry and praline mousse). After brunch, head up to the rooftop terrace for a digestif with the imposing towers of Canary Wharf for company. The bottomless prosecco brunch is served from 12.30pm-2.30pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays for £49pp. Find the menu here

3 Aster, Victoria
Aster in the shiny new NOVA building (ignore the Carbuncle Cup; we rather like it) serves brunch in true Nordic/French style with lots of fresh, light ingredients like cured salmon and pickles, as well as indulgent French flourishes like flat iron steak with cafe de paris butter. At two courses for £24 or three courses for £29 – plus the option of bottomless bubbles for an additional £17pp – it’s hard to say no. Alternatively, play it safe with just the one Mimosa, or Bloody Mary, or Bellini’s – Aster’s delicious brunch cocktails are £10.50 each. We went for the two-course option, starting with a gorgeous smashed avo with green goddess dressing on rye toast, followed by a potato blini with mushrooms, a perfect poached egg and a rich, buttery béarnaise sauce. Delicious. Brunch is served on Saturdays in the Restaurant and Cafe, and on Sundays in the Cafe, from 11am-4pm. Plus, there’s a live DJs on Saturdays.

35 Rascals’ Boozy Bottomless Brunch, Shoreditch
This bottomless brunch really is bottomless. The brainchild of Ballie Ballerson founders and siblings George and Wenny Anderson (the adult ball pit is just next door), the focus of this Saturday afternoon affair is boozy, uninhibited fun. A Buck’s Fizz greets you on arrival, and you’ll never get to the bottom of it. Then the bottomless espresso martini arrives, and you’ll never reach the bottom of that, either. Then the games began, and it all slides into debauchery. Your saviour ought to be the truffle linguine with meatballs served somewhere around the halfway mark, but it’s a pretty uninspiring dish to be honest and I just picked out the meatballs to keep me on an (almost) even keel. If you’re here for the food, you’re in the wrong place, but if you’re here for a super fun, boozy afternoon out with your mates, then Rascals’ bottomless brunch is perfect. Saturdays 3pm-5pm priced £40pp.
