Best Brunch in Balham
Brunch has long been an institution and, when we opened Arlo’s in Balham in July 2016 it was with a clear focus not only on our British native breed, grass-fed and (very) high welfare beef and steak and our cocktails but also with a clear and unremitting focus on Brunch. We wanted to offer the Arlo’s take on the brunch classics, to create and curate the Arlo’s version of Brunch for the good burghers of Balham, Battersea, Clapham and far beyond. We wanted the Arlo’s brunch to be the very best brunch out there.
We like to do things differently at Arlo’s, to seek out improvements, twists and tweaks rather than change for change’s sake. Innovation is great fun, and a chef’s role is by its nature innovative, though we would only offer innovation when accompanied by outright deliciousness.
Armed with this simple and yet elusive goal we set out tasting and testing our Arlo’s Brunch – and we are delighted with the results. For the meat-lovers we’ve choice galore from our version of the full english, our “Full Arlo’s” with bavette steak, chorizo, free-range fried eggs (Clarence Court Burford Browns. Always), the umami-laden mushrooms and vine cherry tomatoes to our Bavette Steak Benedict with oak-smoked hollandaise or Croque Moo’sieur – our steak-take on the timeless classic.
Whilst we take our meat very seriously indeed we’re no less focussed on fresh vegetables in all their variety. Our Vegan Arlo’s is fast become a Balham brunch favourite as are the heady Wild Mushrooms on Truffled toast with black truffle mustard, white truffle oil and summer truffle salt from our friends the Truffle Hunter.
Our Shakshouka with house Burning Bear sauce, baked eggs and grilled sourdough is already an institution.
Add to these our hand-roasted Union coffee, cold pressed English apples or Spanish oranges and, but of course, every cocktail under the rising-brunch-sun from a Mimosa or Bellini to our Bloody Mary or Espresso Martini and you will find everything you need for brunch at Arlo’s. For the virtuous and for the fruit-forward we have freshly blended passion fruit and mango smoothies or our ever popular queen of the green smoothies with kale, spinach a hint of mango and coconut water.
Arlo’s – the best brunches in Battersea and Balham, served every day of the week until 3pm.
