What was once the playground for coal workers has now become a place for friends, families and locals to enjoy weekends on the riverfront at the newly-developed Circus West Village.

With an assortment of brunch options and fitness classes such as spin at Boom Cycle and power hour with Union Station Yoga, Battersea is raising the bar when it comes to Brunch n Grind fun!

So… thinking with our tummies first and being suckers for swanky interiors, neon art and tasty cocktails, we decided to head straight to No. 29 Power Station West to check out their weekend brunch offering for you guys.

The low-down

Firstly, lets get the drinks sorted. With the elderflower and earl grey fizz flowing, the cocktail menu certainly helped ease us into a leisurely morning of girly chat. Catching up with our Brunch n Grind bestie, Amy, we sat and gossiped in the gorgeous teal velvet booths while perusing the menu.

TIP: try and secure one of these comfy spots when you book, they’re perfect for groups of 4-6 people.

Brunch on the bank

Food up next, the brunch list includes favourites such as the triple cheese and truffle toastie, creamy field mushrooms and butter beans on toast, eggs royal and the signature breakfast burger. Believe me when I say there’s more than enough options to keep everyone happy.

Coconut pancakes

Vanessa opted for something sweet and went for the coconut pancakes served with sticky caramelised banana and creamy coconut yoghurt. While I was lured for the breakfast bowl with short grain brown rice, poached egg, avocado, spinach, cucumber and spring onion served with a chunky slice of salmon. Amy ordered the sourdough bruschetta which came with roasted tomatoes, dry cured bacon and breakfast mayo. These dishes were all fresh and warm and got five stars from us!

Leaving enough room for dessert, we went for the coconut chia pudding served with soft poached pear and a very autumnal fig cheesecake with hot pomegranate tea. YUM!

The verdict

Combining friendly service and lovingly-prepared food served in a smart setting, No.29 Power Station West gets all the ticks from us. It’s the perfect venue to refuel after a sweat sesh at Boom or a run along the river. With a beautiful terrace too, brunch on the water will be on our to-do list when the weather starts warming up next year.

Circus West Village is definitely in our top three locations for Brunch n Grind action. Because the area is still relatively undiscovered, the vibe is relaxed, friendly and fun. Get down there quick and take advantage of a gorgeous part of London that isn’t jam-packed with tourists yet!
