Hi, what are you looking for?


London brunch breakdown: Berber & Q, Haggerston

What’s on the menu? It’s a Middle Eastern/North African-inspired grill house so don’t be expecting eggs Benedict and fry ups. Here it’s all about baked eggs, dollops of yoghurt, grilled lamb and piles of warm pitta – all with a healthy dose of mezze thrown into the mix. Must-orders include the Israeli breakfast (for two), the lamb kofte and shakshuka. The rosemary lemonade is the ideal, refreshing accompiament. If you need a hair of the dog, it offers a Middle Eastern twist on a Bloody Mary.

Where is it? 338 Acton Mews, a railway arch in Haggerston just off the Regent’s Canal between the Kingsland Road and Queensbridge Road, up the street from Trip Kitchen and Bar on Acton Mews. Combine your brunch with a walk down to Broadway Market and London Fields. It doesn’t have any outside space and plumps for a dark, sultry ambience, so it might not be the right choice for high summer days.

Berber & Q

Dark and sultry: Berber & Q’s interiorWho’s behind it? Josh Katz and Mattia Bianchi who are both ex-Ottolenghi). Katz takes his inspiration for Berber & Q from his various travels: Mangal restaurants in Turkey, kebab houses of Istanbul, food stalls in Marrakesh and the Shipidium in Tel Aviv – as well we childhood visits to falafel shops and Middle Eastern grocers in north London.

When can I try it? From 11am-3pm on Saturdays and Sunday.

Cheque out: £30 for two without cocktails.

Book it: Unfortunately they don’t take reservations. But get down there asap – it’s still a relatively well-kept secret that they’ve started doing brunch;
