Brunch in Peckham
This sunny little café/restaurant sits along busy Rye Lane in the heart of Peckham. Adding to the growing offering of great eating spots in the area, Tupi serves brekkie, brunch & dinner. We headed South to try their brunch menu bringing together South American & European influence.
We tried the halloumi with guava jam (£4) to start. A simple but lovely dish, it started the meal with the tropical flair promised by the menu. Whilst halloumi is on menus everywhere, it was nice to try it paired with something different.
The mains have a selection of dishes that sound filling, hearty and full of flavourful ingredients. We tried the Tupi super brunch (£10) and the Crushed peas & quinoa fritters (£11). The Tupi super brunch was chock full with delicious healthy ingredients. Avocado, chia seeds, quinoa, kale, pumpkin seeds, broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes make up this dish, I added a poached egg (£1 extra) and the dish was super tasty, so fresh and filling but incredibly light.
The fritters consisted of green peas and quinoa and served with aioli, tomato jam, avocado and a choice of rocket/bacon eggs. The jam, aioli and perfectly poached egg worked so well with the lovely fritter texture and they all had great pops of flavour.
We had a well-made cappuccino and a pot of English Breakfast tea (dairy free milks are available). Tupi also have a wide range of fresh juices, smoothies and milkshakes if caffeine isn’t your bag.
Tupi is a relaxed spot for brunch in Peckham and also have a generous happy hour 7 days a week. The café is stripped back in décor with lots of light and has a relaxed feel. The food, with South American twists has a punch of both flavour and freshness that made for a lovely brunch. We would certainly recommend this cosy space for well made, fresh and hearty dishes. There is another branch in Elephant & Castle – South Londoners are spoilt for choice here! Non south Londoners, we think it is worth the journey!
