South Kensington Brunch – Al Fresco

Is there anything better than coming home from a trip and discovering a brand new killer brunch spot in your hood?

Well not exactly my hood, but a leisurely walk from my hood.

Which is still pretty great.

Particularly if you’re four legged.

As soon as we heard about this place (by “heard” naturally I mean “saw on Instagram during an infinate scrolling sesh”) we were out of the door faster than you can say “walkies!”

Feeling really very happy in my new best ever jeans.

They feel like fancy pants designer jeans, without the eye watering price tag.

Find them here, stock up! Also check out the below while you’re at it.

Happy to be home with my favourite little chap, especially having had such success smuggling sunshine into the country.

We took a trip down Exhibition Road (between The Natural History Museum and The V&A) onto the ever-busy pedestrianised bit of South Kensington.

It has all but been taken over by delicious little restaurants, Parisian bistro style tables and chairs spilling out into the courtyard.

Just the place for a spot of brunch al fresco.

Browns and Rosie is a gorgeous little Aussie style café serving up cracking coffees and beautiful bites.

Grab a table outside, sit in the sun and soak up some of those Aussie vibes.

Things really don’t get any more hip than tumeric lattes, matcha lattes, acaii bowls and avocado toast.

Instagrammable it may be.


Most definitely.

If it’s hot, grab an acaii bowl (add almond butter and thank me later), the avo toast is good…

…the baked eggs with jamon are sublime.

Served with toast for dipping and guaranteed to cure even the most brutal of hangovers.

Or in my case, jet lag.

Tumeric is my new obsession, not just because of its sunshine yellow hue (which if you ask Julia will stain anything it comes near to!) but it has countless health benefits.

One quick Google will tell you “Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.”

Fans say it fights cancer, depression, bad digestion, inflammation, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, it’ll improve brain function, and even make you a bacon sandwich if you ask nicely.

Let’s just say that as someone who doesn’t live on acaii berries and sun salutations, I can use all the help I can get. Even if it does come in a latte!

You know what they say, it’s never too latte to start taking better care of yourself!

(They do say that, right?)

All brunched up, full of beans (or turmeric) and ready to tackle another day.

Jet lag banished!

Even if we did have to take a break or two on the walk home…

I blame Custard.

He blames me.

We make the perfect team.

    You can make your own-heat milk to very warm, not hot, add turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon and honey. I also like a bit before of fresh ginger for bite. Yummy and good for you.

  • Acai bowls for days! Always makes me think of the SNL sketch Back Home Baller- “Bowls, bowls, all types of bowls”. Also how do you keep the tulips from dying??

  • Payton Heilman

    Try Ginger Turmeric tea. It’s a game changer.

  • The tumeric latte sounds fantastic, I have to try it!

  • Kate

    Looks like such a pretty spot. Never actually heard of turmeric lattes before now! x

    what a lovely post Rosie, your dog is looking cuter and cuter on every post he’s featured <3
    the brunch cafe looks amazing, the food looks fab and I've never even heard of turmeric latte, what a revelation, I want to try this place out on that alone 😀

  • The food looks incredible and I’d love to try it next time I’m in London – it’s very California too! Pressed Juicery makes a fab turmeric and orange juice with a nice balance and a great taste that I always try to pick up. I’ve had friends obsessed with the stuff for years!

  • I love this whole look! The bag with the flowers and Mr Custard’s bandana…it all works <3


  • What a gorgeous little place! Speaking of turmeric, I swear by the stuff. A little turmeric in my dinner whenever I can keeps infections at bay!

    This looks like an amazing spread!! Turmeric is incredible and so versatile! We use it a lot in Persian cooking – onions, lentils, turmeric, a dash of cumin, salt pepper, over rice, and you have a full healthy meal right there!!

  • Oooh this does look loevly, I’ll have to add it to a hotspot to try!

  • What a cute pup! I’m going to seek out a tumeric latte!

  • Greetings from Australia! Hooray for sharing love for Aussie-style cafes. We love a good brunch on weekends, and I have to say your spread of food looks like a typical cafe breakfast over here.
