What better way to start the day than by sharing margaritas and churros with friends? Stop by Madera at Treehouse London for plenty of savoury Mexican dishes: flavour-packed pan plano (Mexican-style flatbreads), fajita bowls and more, plus bottomless churros to top it all off!

Madera is especially great for vegans seeking Mexican brunch in London. They offer a dedicated vegan menu featuring a breakfast of tofu, black beans, grilled tomatoes and papas bravas, as well as carefully formulated vegan carne asada and vegan ceviche. And no matter what your dietary preferences, you’ll surely delight in the bespoke cocktails (and the view from the rooftop bar)! With fresh seasonal ingredients and margarita flavours like passionfruit and guava, Madera has bebidas ganadoras beyond compare.

2. Primos Mexican (Finsbury Park)

Primos Mexican puts a fun, competitive twist on Mexican margarita brunch with their Bottomless Bingo Brunch every Saturday! Enjoy tacos with your choice of filling – chicken tinga, sundried tomato and aubergine, fresh chorizo and potato and more – alongside bottomless margaritas, palomas or Aperol Spritzes (you can even try all three!).

In addition to the great food and drink at Primos Mexican, you’ll also get to take part in their Mexican Lotería: bingo with colourful cards instead of numbered balls, during which you’ll even have the chance to win prizes! From the games to the brunch to the bottomless tequila cocktails, you’ll have a beautiful (and beautifully authentic) time at Primos Mexican.

3. Barrio (Shoreditch)

When it comes to lively Mexican bottomless brunches, Barrio in Shoreditch delivers everything you could want and more. Think quirky neon decor, nonstop 80s music and delectable Mexican cocktails… in other words, a fantastic bottomless brunch event you’ll want to come back to again and again!

At Barrio’s La Isla Bonita brunch, you’ll receive a welcome cocktail followed by unlimited Prosecco, Sol beer or spiced-rum sangria. Of course, there’s also plenty to eat in order to balance things out: Mexican-inspired beef and chicken burgers, queso libre vegetarian options and even vegan dishes. You’ll finish with churros and chocolate, enjoying nostalgic 80s hits from Cyndi Lauper, Eurythmics and Madonna all the while.

4. Santo Remedio (London Bridge)

Santo Remedio offers some of the most delicious, authentic Mexican food in London, and their weekend brunch is no exception. At Santo Remedio’s London Bridge restaurant (they also have a smaller café in Shoreditch), you’ll find mouthwatering tamarind-and-orange-glazed chicken tacos, hibiscus enchiladas, baby potato flautas with avocado salsa, and so much more.

That’s not even to mention the many tempting drinks available – as part of Santo Remedio’s £33 add-on brunch deal, you’ll get bottomless margaritas, sangria, Cava and Mexican beer. If you’re willing to splash out a little extra, we’d highly recommend a custom Santo Remedio cocktail, like their mezcal negroni or clementine daiquiri – and to end brunch on an equally high note, there are churros con cajeta and Mexican “chocoflan” for dessert. Trust us, you won’t regret indulging in these exceptional flavours of Mexican cuisine!

5. Caldera (Hackney)

Caldera is just the brunch place if you adore Mexican margarita brunch, but your friends or family tend to prefer a more “traditional” brunching experience. This Mexican fusion spot has a menu that’s equal parts familiar and experimental; dishes of the latter nature include their pumpkin, spinach and potato enchiladas and their ribeye steak tacos with padrón peppers.

For those who aren’t quite so avant-garde with their brunch tastes, Caldera also has more classic menu items like huevos benedict with bacon, fish tacos, and dulce de leche churros to tuck into. You can wash it all down with bottomless margaritas, Prosecco and even fresh fruit juice – marvelling at the warm colours and compelling artwork of the restaurant’s interior as you do.

6. La Bodega Negra Cafe (Soho)

Upstairs at La Bodega Negra Cafe, you’ll discover one of the most exciting Mexican margarita brunches in London! With bottomless margaritas in classic, hibiscus and frozen flavours – or your choice of beer or Prosecco if margs aren’t so much your thing – this is just the place to kick off an amazing weekend.

As well as tasty cocktails, you’ll get some fab flavour combinations from La Bodega Negra’s brunch menu: Mayan poke with sweetcorn and chipotle crema, pork al pastor with pineapple pico, and mushroom tacos with pecorino cheese. Of course, we couldn’t forget the real stars of this brunch – a rocking 90-minute DJ set, and drag performers to keep you singing and laughing all the way through your chocolate & coffee cake! For a Mexican brunch that’s both sassy and sabroso, head down (or up, rather) to La Bodega Negra Cafe.

7. Mestizo (Camden)

Camden restaurant and tequila bar Mestizo does a Sunday brunch that packs a punch. With nearly 20 years of experience, they’ve been preparing tamales, chorizo con papa and other iconic Mexican dishes long enough to perfect them. Combine all this with their bartenders’ tequila expertise, and Mestizo definitely has a Mexican brunch you won’t find anywhere else.

Make the most of it with a few sharing plates, then sip on life-changing margaritas or tequila cocktails – there are 9 different types of margaritas at brunch alone! The watermelon, ginger and jalapeño margaritas are just three of our favourites (you can get them as cocktails or as pitchers for the table). Note that Mestizo’s brunch isn’t technically bottomless, so it may be better to sample things in moderation… but be careful, because after a pitcher of margaritas, you might find it turning into a bottomless one after all!

8. Near and Far (Camden)

If you’re after an American take on Mexican bottomless brunch, look no further than Near and Far, also located in Camden. Their £39 bottomless brunches include two full hours of margaritas, Aperol spritzes, Prosecco, Bloody Marys, or even mocktails (for a lower price!) – all alongside Mexican/American food that’s to die for.

Enjoy nachos slathered in cheese, salsa and guacamole, as well as the classic huevos rancheros and chicken waffles with maple syrup and fried eggs. Indeed, this is one of the sweeter brunches you’ll come across in London, as they also have cinnamon French toast with berries and a key lime pie smoothie bowl on the menu. And those who are gluten-intolerant (or who bloat easily) will delight in the fact that not only is this brunch menu quite varied – it’s also entirely gluten-free.

9. Cheeky Chicos (Clapham)

We couldn’t write an article about the best Mexican margarita brunch in London without Cheeky Chicos. From the unforgettable Apocalypse Margarita – tequila, orange liqueur and pineapple purée – to the Crown Rita blend of margarita and beer, you’ll never tire of their cocktails.

Needless to say, you’ll also find killer Mexican cuisine at Cheeky Chicos, from mini chorizo bites and elote (grilled corn topped with melted cheese, cream and spices) as appetisers to an incredible range of huevos, tacos and quesadillas as mains. There are also plenty of loaded toasts and savoury sandwiches if you’re not in the mood for Mexican! Whatever you decide to eat, be sure to revel in the incomparable drinks (and brightly coloured scenery) alongside it.

10. Mezcalito (Chelsea)

Let’s end on a brunch that’s been touted as “one of London’s best-kept secrets”: the £35 bottomless brunch experience at Mezcalito! Their light-drenched location with indoor hanging vines is just gorgeous – so even as you’re downing your third margarita (or glass of Prosecco or rosé), you can still look around and feel you’re having a classy, Instagram-worthy afternoon here.

But it’s not just about aesthetics, because they deliver on the food too. At Mezcalito, you can order dishes to rival any adventurous Mexican brunch in London, such as chilli-lime chicharrones (pork scratchings) and calamari tacos. You might finish off your meal with platanitos fritos – plantains with condensed milk, queso fresco and just a hint of black pepper – or chocolate-filled churros.

Wherever you go, one thing is for sure: London is an absolute haven for Mexican margarita brunch in 2022, and there are always more to try on the weekends with friends and family. So get out there, have a margarita or two, and say adiós to boring brunches once and for all!
