Brunch in Battersea
We ventured South to riverside eatery No 29 Power Station West at Battersea Power Station. The bar falls under a collection of modern, airy “neighbourhood bar” openings across London by Darwin & Wallace.
We arrived on a bustling Saturday afternoon to find a lively atmosphere. The bar is incredibly spacious (I mean huge!) with modern armchairs sprawled by floor to ceiling windows for sipping coffee and waiting for your table. The vibe is very modern with mixed furniture, industrial lighting, metallic accents and greenery dotted around.
We kicked off with a classic bellini with prosecco (£7.50) and an oat milk latte with chocolate (£2.95).
There is a small but decent range of brunch dishes on offer including Eggs benedict, pancakes and lighter chia puddings. We opted for the Banana & Ricotta Pancakes (£8.50) with coconut yogurt, maple syrup and warm berry compote. We asked for no banana slices on top which was happily accommodated.
The Creamy Field Mushrooms & Butter Beans on Toast (£8.95) with tarragon, truffle and parmesan was our second choice. The dishes were both light, fresh brunch dishes and we thought they were reasonably priced for the quality and venue.
We finished with an Apple & Cranberry Crumble (£6.95) with ice cream which was unfortunately too dry for our liking.
No 20 Power Station West is a bit of an all rounder and offers a decent brunch in Battersea. The dishes were reasonably priced and the service, ambiance and interiors certainly ticked the right boxes. There were a real mix of groups including families. There was a chilled and cool vibe with the impressive central bar that is great for drinks with friends.
Downstairs has a quieter, moodier vibe complete with a smaller bar, fun neon signage and a free (yes, FREE) photo booth. Their aim to be a neighbourhood bar certainly seems to be taking off and we would certainly pop in again for a cocktail, particularly in warmer weather as the floral riverside terrace looked promising.
