My Top 5 Brunch Spots in Hull

Brunchin’ has got to be one of my all time favourite things to do. I absolutely love eggs and I truly believe breakfast can be consumed at any time of the day. When I moved away, I relied so much on social media, local websites and TripAdvisor reviews for food recommendations. So when I came back to Hull, I asked Google ‘where’s the best brunch’. The results were poor. So here I am, bringing a comprehensive list of my top places to hit for a cracking brunch.

Nibble @ The Dock, Queen Street, Hull – 5/5

This spot is kind of tucked away but once you find it, you are rewarded with a breakfast menu that will have you salivating within seconds. I’ve eaten here a few times; I’ve had the traditional full English breakfast (you just can’t beat it) and the egg in a hole. The presentation is amazing, making it perfect for those drool-worthy Instagram shots. It will no doubt make all your friends extremely jealous. I’d recommend booking a table or be prepared to wait, I promise it’ll be worth it. And guess what? Your furry friends are welcome too. (

The Barista Cafe @ 141 Newland Avenue, Hull – 5/5

You will not be disappointed with the coffee here. And I can confidently say the food is just as good. I ordered the Barista House Benedict, which surprisingly came with avocado and bacon. This went down a treat and the flat white ticked all the boxes. I adored the exposed brick and the pretty floor tiles. I have to go back asap to try more of their appetising dishes. (

Drewton’s Farm Shop @ The Drewton Estate, South Cave – 4/5

So this isn’t technically in Hull but it is worth the drive out to South Cave. This rustic farm shop and restaurant serve up all the traditional dishes from scotch eggs to afternoon tea. You can also buy plenty of homemade pastries and meat from the deli to devour at home. I’ve ordered the Drewton’s award-winning Yorkshire breakfast time and time again. All the ingredients are locally sourced so this reflects in the price. I’ve knocked one point off because of its rural location. For selfish reasons, I wish it was closer. Although I’m sure my bank account would disagree. (

Vanessa Delicatessen & Café @ 21-22 Saturday Market, Beverley – 5/5

Located in the ever so popular market town of Beverley, this deli come cafe is a popular spot for local produce and home baked sweet treats. I’ve been here more times than I can remember for cake, sausage sarnies, hungover breakfasts and deluxe egg bennys. They serve the drinks in the cutest cup and saucer, I always want to steal them. Looking good is just as important as it tasting good, am I right? (

Riverhouse Coffee Co. @ 147A High Street, Hull – 4/5

Nestled between all the best pubs in Old Town, you’ll find this small cafe, full of chilled vibes and tasteful decor. I ordered the poached eggs with halloumi and ‘shrooms. I am instantly drawn to any halloumi dish on a menu. It’s like a sixth sense. This is little different to a ‘regular’ breakfast but my taste-buds were more than satisfied. The menu is less traditional, so try something new. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. (

I don’t know about you but all this food talk is making me hungry. A few more won’t hurt; so here are the runner ups:

  • The Village Green – Richmond Lane, Kingswood, Hull
  • Walkers of Well Lane – 1 Well Lane, Beverley
  • Cheval of Willerby – Green Lane, Hull
  • Millers Raywell – Raywell Lodge Park, Riplingham Rd
  • Thieving Harry’s – 73 Humber Street, Hull

And last but not least, my never ending list of places to try:

  • Brunch Club – 39 Skillings Lane, Brough
  • Kitchen – 2 Bridgegate, Howden
  • Simples Cafe – King Street, Hull
  • Urban 44 – 56 Hull Road, Hessle
  • Handheld at Home – 321 Beverley Road, Hull
  • Cave Bar & Kitchen – 67 Market Place, South Cave
  • Blondes – 106 King Street, Cottingham
  • Zoo Cafe – 80b Newland Avenue, Hull

Have you got any recommendations for me? I’m happy to travel for good food. Please share them below!

  1. Hi Jess, Amy Heward mentioned your fabulous foodie write-ups to me. I run a little place in Barton Upon Humber called the Old School Canteen. It’s located in the former atmospheric Wilderspin School on Queen Street, which is now a museum. It’s over the bridge but we’ll worth a visit. I hope you can find the time to come and sample some of our great food and coffee.
