Brunching at Oslo

There’s hope for hospitality with the news of the vaccine, and as we look forward into 2021, here’s one of London’s best brunch spots to add to you ‘must-visit’ list. You can either enjoy food indoors with your household or outside with friends.

Drawing on a Nordic aesthetic, Oslo, just a stone’s throw from Hackney Central station, is known for its buzzing bar, superb food and live music. Over lockdown, the Hackney favourite has spiced up their weekend brunch menu taking on the best bits from lunch and breakfast. You can now choose between breakfast classics, Norwegian sharing boards, salads and burgers.

But don’t expect a classic bar with standard bar food – instead, expect a wholesome brunch that keeps you going until the end of the day all seated in a stylish Nordic interior. Available from 11am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, the menu has a huge range, starring our family of fabulous eggs.

We’ve heard the one to go for is the Nordic Cure, a delightful combination of Clarence Court Burford Brown’s, chorizo, bacon, avocado, grilled peppers, homemade chilli beans and halloumi, all piled high on a waffle – what’s not to love? And for the veggies, go for the Veg Cure, where they simply swap out the bacon and chorizo for a portobello mushroom and cherry tomatoes.

If you fancy giving the Nordic Cure a try head to 1a Amhurst Road, Hackney, London E8 1ll. For more info about this beautiful brunch spot, visit their website here.
