Sunday review image


Ask anyone in Islington where they go for brunch, and you’re almost sure to hear about Sunday. This is one of the hottest places in Barnsbury, a breakfast/brunch/lunch place that’s always packed out at weekends – and sometimes even during the week. It’s worth queuing, even in the rain, for consistently well-executed standard dishes and a few more out-of-the-ordinary ones. The pancakes are some of Islington’s fluffiest. Eggs benedict is awesome. Just be patient.
