Milkwood, Herne Hill

Who doesn’t love to Brunch!

It’s what the weekend is made for. While the sun is shining this beautiful October it is the perfect time to wrap up warm, chuck on those sunnies and head out for a weekend stroll.

Clocking up those steps and then replenishing with a healthy brunch is always a perfect way to start the day.

Brockwell Park

This weekend I went for a beautiful stroll around Brockwell Park, beautiful and full of life, the park is made up of a multitude of activities to suit all. My friend, Sasha, and I went for a morning coffee and a walk. As we strolled out of the park and into Herne Hill, our stomachs began to rumble, so we went on a hunt for some healthy replenishment.

Brunch In Herne Hill

Nestled in the heart of Herne Hill lies a delightful little kitchen+bar, Milkwood.

We were greeted by the friendly staff and quickly proceeded to our table. The decor is delightful! Subdued lighting and wooden walls – it really made for a cosy stop to brunch.


Sasha and I sat down and quickly ordered some drinks. Sasha rebooted her caffeine levels with a cappuccino while I choose one of the fresh smoothies Strawberry, Cucumber and Mint, to rehydrate.

Fresh, tasty and oh so juicy! I would definitely give this smoothie a try!

Best Eggs in Herne Hill

We then made our way to the brunch menu. From the simplicity of eggs any way on toast to the regulars of Eggs Royale, or the sweetness of pancakes…Milkwood caters to all tastes.

Sasha and I ordered. Sasha (little miss sweet tooth) indulged in the Blueberry Pancakes as I ummed and erred between the Eggs Royale and the Avo and Eggs on Sourdough…

 Avocado always wins!

My oh my! I made the right choice. The avocado was gorgeous! Smooth and seasoned to perfection. The eggs broke perfectly and the yolk meandered through the avocado and toast. The pea shoots added a perfect crunch. The garnish of jalapeños and chilli added a dimension to the dish that married well with the flavours.

Every mouthful was delightful. Filling as it was – the dish was light and flavourful and really sets you up for the day.

New Jersey-born Sasha tucked in Blueberry Pancakes as she reminisced on a trip she had to New York. As a connoisseur to the American breakfast she remarked on the delicate flavour of the pancakes which instead of cream had creme fraiche which matched the sweetness with an ounce of sourness to balance the meal.

Full, warm and bellies content. We mused at on how reasonable the brunch came to. Barely over the £20 mark, we left full of smiles to continue our weekend stroll into Brixton.

If you are seeking a weekend brunch and stroll I would highly recommend this little gem in the heart of Herne Hill.
