Aussie Sunday Brunch at Timmy Green 🌿


Sunday brunch has become somewhat of a tradition for me and my friends, whether we're venturing across London to try the latest spot we've all seen on Instagram, or curing our hangovers in our local Wetherspoons (you can call that brunch, right?!). 

Last Sunday we decided to branch out and visit Timmy Green in Victoria. Victoria isn't an area I've really visited, which is odd because it's so close to my house, so it was lovely to check out the local area in the sunshine, admittedly while dodging tourists left, right and centre as we got closer to Buckingham Palace. 

Timmy Green is part of the 'Daisy Green Collection', a group of restaurants and bars across London, all inspired by their Australian heritage. Timmy Green was named after their founder Prue Freeman's late brother, a true Australian cowboy, whose legacy inspires so much of the menu - so you can expect to see lots of prime grass fed meats, small plates and of course, their famous Aussie brunch. 

Located in Nova, Victoria's newest development, Timmy Green is just steps away from Victoria Station (perfect for that post-brunch food coma!) and a short walk away from Buckingham Palace and it's surrounding parks. Set over two floors, Timmy Green seats around 150, so although they don't accept brunch reservations, you won't be waiting long...in fact, we didn't wait at all, and that was at peak time on a Sunday morning. 

The interiors were what drew me in at first, the space is light and airy, and the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The atmosphere was calm, and we were never rushed (even when paying the bill), which made it the perfect place for a long overdue catch up and of course, some good food. 


We started off with some coffee and drinks from their extensive drinks menu...I was tempted by a cocktail but it was pre midday so decided a smoothie would be a more acceptable option! I opted for the 'Go Bananas', a concoction of banana (obvs), fat free frozen yoghurt, low fat milk, agave, banana chips and bee pollen whist my friend went for the 'Green Detox Juice' with freshly squeezed cucumber, spinach, celery and apple - uncharacteristically healthy for the both of us...you can tell a summer of socialising is starting to catch up! 


The drinks came beautifully presented and were seriously delicious, the perfect start to our Sunday morning. After drinks, we made a start on the extensive brunch menu, and in an effort to deviate away from my usual avo toast (although their avo on charcoal did look seriously good - serious food envy when the man next to me ordered it!), I went for the coconut bread french toast with thick greek yoghurt, fresh and freeze dried raspberries, mango, shaved coconut, 10.8 bee pollen, and pure Vermont maple. Although it was a change for me, and anyone who knows me knows I'm one of those people who always orders the same thing, I was not disappointed. Apart from the dish being the prettiest thing I think I've ever eaten, it was so tasty (and gluten free too!), I savoured every last bite and would have definitely gone back for seconds! 

My friend ordered the buttermilk blueberry pancakes with fresh blueberries, mascarpone, pure Vermont maple and and maple bacon - as you can see, we both had a touch of the sweet tooth that morning. They looked amazing, and after trying a bite, I can confirm that they were amazing...the food envy was back with a vengeance. 

After we'd suitably stuffed ourselves, we paid and headed out into Victoria to enjoy the sunshine and walk off our food. We took a stroll past Buckingham Palace and played tourist, and then through St James's Park to see the swans and bask in the sunshine - the perfect end to a lovely brunch! 

If you're looking for a new brunch spot, that's not hideously overcrowded or demands a ridiculous wait to be seated, then look no further than Timmy Green - I'll definitely be visiting again!
