Looking for the best brunch in Mumbai? If you’re in the maximum city with longest name, you’re never too far away from a great brunch. Whether it’s a lavish buffet spread, or a selection of classic brunch plates like eggs benedict, pancakes, tacos and indulgent sandwiches, or even regional specialties for that matter, it’s all the more reason to look forward to a leisurely meal on the weekends.
We spoke to several foodies and tastemakers to get their take on the best brunches in Mumbai. Best brunches in Mumbai
Best brunches in Mumbai
Olive Bar & Kitchen, Khar
“Olive (14, Nargis Dutt Rd, Union Park, Khar West) has consistently been a great spot for a Sunday brunch. It’s a no-brainer: they’ve got a variety of wines, pizzas, cold cuts and a full brunch spread. You can have the all-inclusive brunch or order off a menu as well. And the best part is that they’ve been consistent for the past 15 years or so. Another great spot is O Pedro. It’s more à la carte, so I head there when I’m willing to put some effort into my ordering. But their food is absolutely yum. Just go on a Sunday, eat and pass out. Their bone marrow is insane. And the desserts are divine as well.” Anuradha Joshi Medhora, owner, Charoli Foods
The Table, Colaba
“The Table (Kalapesi Trust Building, Ground Floor, opposite Dhanraj Mahal, Apollo Bandar, Colaba) is my favourite spot for brunch in the city with longest name. Definitely get the sobo salad and the tuna tataki when you’re there. Americano (121/123 Radha Bhavan, Nagindas Master Rd, Kala Ghoda) is a good spot for truffle spaghetti and corn ribs. Some other classic favourites are The Bombay Canteen (Unit-1, Process House, S.B. Road, Kamala Mills, Near Radio Mirchi Office Lower, Parel) for its pork tacos and Begum’s Baked Brie and Fenix at The Oberoi (The Oberoi, Mumbai, Nariman Point).” Shaan Khanna, founder, Networking Now India and co-founder, Spicy Sangria
Café Madras, Matunga East
“A good but unpretentious brunch spot for me would be Café Madras (Ground floor Kamakshi building, 391/B, Bhaudaji Road, Matunga. Call 24014419). I’d recommend going here to try the rasam vada and tuppa dosa with podi.” Munaf Kapadia, founder, The Bohri Kitchen, VP and co-pilot, Zomato Wings
Cecconi’s, SoHo House, Juhu
“I’d have to say Cecconi’s (Soho House Mumbai, 16, Juhu Tara Rd, Chandrabai Nagar, Juhu. Call: 62133333) does a really nice brunch. The vibe is great and you’re right by the sea. In terms of food and drinks, they offer a good spread with handmade pastas and grills. Pair this with an aperol spritz or campari cocktail for an ideal brunch experience. JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar’s JW Café also does a nice brunch and The Table does a pretty good eggs benedict and French toast from what I recall.” Vicky Ratnani, chef and culinary consultant
Lotus Café , JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu, and Royal China
“I like the brunch at Lotus Café (JW Marriott, Juhu Tara Road, Juhu. Call 66933344) for the simple reason that they offer a good spread, it’s perfectly suitable for a large gathering or if you’re with family, and the variety on offer is great. Other than that, I would have to say the dim sum brunch at Royal China (outposts in Bandra and Fort), is a good bet. Get the radish cakes, cheung fun, and sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf.” Chef Niyati Rao, Ekaa.
JW Café, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar, and Fenix, The Oberoi Mumbai
“I do feel that the brunch at JW Café (Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. Call 68828656) is great value for money. They have an extensive dessert spread with live pancake and waffle stations, great seafood like crab and lobster, and the menu keeps changing often. It’s also worth your while to call beforehand and ask if they have any specials lined up for the weekend. I also enjoy brunch at Fenix, at The Oberoi Mumbai. And for brunch with a great view, I’d suggest Estella in Juhu.” Sanjyot Keer, chef, digital content creator and founder, Your Food Lab
