Food: Sunday

Best for Brunch


Stepping into this squeeze of a café in north London is like falling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland: the interiors are small and the portions huge. But don’t worry, shrinking is wildly unlikely.

Sunday is a laid-back neighbourhood restaurant on a pretty residential street in Barnsbury. It’s so laid-back that it doesn’t have a website, let alone reservations – be prepared to wait in line.

The dishes are what draw the crowd. As well as fresh fruit, yoghurt, granola, pastries and all manner of eggs are the likes of corn fritters topped with kiln-smoked salmon, avocado, tomatoes and crème fraîche. Pulled-pork waffle benedict is drizzled with tangy yuzu mayonnaise, while brioche French toast is scattered with diced banana and drenched in salted caramel. Then there are those fluffy buttermilk pancakes: what’s brunch without pudding?

Aside from Monday, the kitchen is open throughout the week and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. But really, as you might have gathered, lazy Sundays are what it does best.
