The best brunch venues close to our Northampton Serviced Apartments

Brunch is the ‘new’ fashion meal of the day generally enjoyed on week-ends as a social get-together. There is ‘brunch on the run’ or making the most of this special meal time and going to an eatery that offers the perfect ambiance to sit back and enjoy a tasty treat. Brunch has also become more popular as a ‘dinner date’ alternative based mainly on it being less expensive even when accompanied by alcoholic beverages. To help our guests staying at either the Centro or Pinnacle serviced apartments we have compiled a list of local places to choose from.

Nanna’s Kitchen

An independent eatery. Nanna’s Kitchen brunch menu includes a variety of home-cooked dishes made from fresh ingredients sourced locally. Food is freshly prepared so not a restaurant to visit if you are in a hurry and expecting speedy service. They cater to all dietary requirements – vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy free. Breakfast or brunch are served Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday 11 – 3pm. You can find them on Kettering Road, NN14AH (1 mile walk or car journey).

The Red Lion

Tucked away in the idyllic Northamptonshire countryside village of Brafield-on-the-Green. Brunch is served from 10am to 1pm week-ends only. Located 36 Bridle Path, Northampton, NN7 1BP (5.2 miles from Centro Serviced Apartment).

Academy Coffee Haus

This quaint eatery is based in the centre of Northampton. A great place to go for a tasty brunch and a superb coffee poured by one of their highly skilled baristas. Great care is taken to make all tea or coffee orders to perfection. The Academy Coffee Haus have a well priced brunch menu that competes favourably to the high street coffee chains. They serve a traditional full English, a vegetarian option, breakfast roll and toast options. They are open 10am to 4pm daily. Located at 1 College Street Mews, NN1 2QF, which is close to the Grosvenor shopping centre and Royal and Derngate Theatre.


Breakfast/brunch is served daily from 9am to 11.30am. They are renowned for their scrumptious American style hash browns. Their unlimited breakfast also includes eggs, bacon and sausage or the option of a continental.

There are a limited number of places that offer a brunch menu in Northampton in and around the town centre. There is, of course always the option of visiting a local bakery and then taking advantage of the fully equipped kitchen in one of our Cotels serviced apartments to make and serve your own brunch – although having someone else do the cooking and cleaning on a week-end can be a real treat, which is why we have shared places we know that we hope you will enjoy!
