Brunch at The Modern Pantry


I think most brunch loving Londoners are aware of The Modern Pantry by now, I've certainly been there myself a fair few times, but it's one of those places that is so good that I think it's more than worth mentioning again!

The Modern Pantry is pretty much always fully booked, and you may be wondering what makes it so superior to the millions of other brunch options in London? Well, quite simply, TMP really is of superior quality. I can't say it's one of my frequent favourites as it is a bit of a trek to get to and the prices are too high to make it a weekly thing, but it's most definitely the place I go to when I feel like going out for something a little bit more special. TMP uses unusual ingredients combined with more common recipes to create some really interesting brunch dishes, many of which you probably won't have seen on a menu before!


So, off I went yet again on Sunday, bringing with me a group of friends of whom none had visited previously but all of whom plan on returning at some point! I had the smoothie of the day for £4.50 which was melon and pineapple - though honestly, I didn't actually like it that much! Nevermind.

For my meal, I had their pancakes with a difference! Raspberry and ricotta pancakes with berry and licquorish compote and creme fraiche for £9. The only problem with this meal is it takes an extra 20 minutes to make which meant my friends were all stuck waiting for mine! I do love this meal though, it's surprisingly healthy tasting for pancakes and it's really delicious.


The common choice throughout my friends ended up being the £8.80 option of sweetcorn, feta, green chilli & curry leaf waffle with smoked streaky bacon and maple syrup, which you can see in the image at the top of this post!

The Modern Pantry is located in Clerkenwell (EC1) and you can view the website here! Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays and you can book online through the site - I really would recommend you do this as I've rarely been lucky getting a place if I haven't booked! The food is a little on the expensive side for brunch, but it's unique, healthy, and delicious so most definitely worth it!

  1. Oh man, those pancakes look to die for! I love raspberry flavoured anything, and I bet the ricotta made them so light and fluffy!

    1. I knew I'd love them because raspberries and pancakes are basically my most favourite of things! They were really unusual tasting, definitely worth it.

    1. Pancakes are pretty much my favourite thing so trust me when I tell you that those are some good ones ;) I have been known to go to the breakfast club at about 10pm before, so I personally think no, there's plenty of time, head over!
