Patron Highbury: unique French brunch dishes back on the menu

Discover plates unique to N5 including a confit duck bap, cassoulet on toast and raclette with dauphinoise

We first reviewed the fantastic brunch at Patron Highbury back in the autumn of 2020, when lockdowns were weaving in and out of our daily lives. At that moment it was takeaway-only.

Now the Blackstock Road restaurant is rightfully bringing back its iconic French brunch to its sunny corner spot: in fact, the bright and buzzy vibe makes it the perfect place to start the weekend, with all the ingredients to make you feel like you’re having breakfast in Paris.

Grab a coffee on the terrace with a delicious pastry or devour one of the new, irresistible brunch dishes. The larger menu will feature authentic French brunch plates, each with a modern, exciting twist: there’s raclette toastie with dauphinoise potatoes and caramelised onions, cassoulet on toast with butter beans and traditional Toulouse sausage (see main pic, above), or confit duck brioche bap with red wine reduction, maple bacon and fried duck egg.

Ultimate brunch classics will also have their spot on the menu, including smoked mackerel kedgeree with rich yolk poached egg (pic below) creamy wild mixed mushrooms on toast with Grana Padano shavings, vibrantly fresh avocado tartare, and a Continental board with seasonal cheese, Serrano ham, croissant, French baguette and configure.
