There is only one way to HuffPost UK's heart, and that is through our stomachs... in brunch form - ideally between 11am-3pm, on Saturday or Sunday.
(But we'd just as happily eat brunch at any other time...)
So, without further ado our editors have given the low-down on their favourite places for eggs, coffee, orange juice and all things brunch.
From cheap-and-cheerful to card-melting luxury, your traditional English caff to something a little different, we've got London's brunch scene sorted.
"If you’re an ‘I-must-mop-up-the-alcohol-from-last-night-or-else-I-shall-die’ type of person but the local greasy spoon no longer cuts it, this is the place for you," says traffic and trends editor Sara Nelson.
"The ‘Turkish’ eggs served with whipped yoghurt and hot chilli butter have saved my life on more than one occasion."
"At the top of Heron Tower, this really is a room with a view. And what better place to have brunch than looking over the whole of London," says Brogan Driscoll, HuffPost UK Lifestyle.
"At £14, it's probably the most expensive English breakfast this side of lunchtime, but you won't really give a crap because the view is worth every penny - and the food is pretty good too. If you get in that is, booking is a bit of a nightmare."
She adds: "Wild mushrooms, gruyère, truffle, soldiers is my breakfast of choice."
"This is no namby-pampy eggs and orange juice brunch, this is the kind of brunch that should take three hours and end with you tottering away unsteadily from the table," says Poorna Bell, editor of HuffPost UK Lifestyle.
"The surroundings are classy - think typical high-ceilinged five-star restaurant - which makes it perfect for a romantic or a girly special occasion, and the food is spread out in a vast buffet.
Delicate twirls of salmon, mountains of fresh couscous salads, platters of good cheese are my favourites. Make sure you leave room for pudding though - all those delicate mini desserts and dainty chocolates will turn your eyes into saucer-plates."
She added: "It might seem a little pricy, but considering most afternoon teas are eye-wateringly expensive, £50 for never-ending fizzy wine and food is bang on."

The Good Egg
"Eggscellent, eggstraordinary, eggsquisite - there are plenty of ways to describe the oeuffy offerings of The Good Egg," says Brogan Driscoll, assistant editor of HuffPost UK Lifestyle.
"Try their trademark blue Cotswold Legbar eggs with merguez sausage, in the delicious spicy North African shakshuka (pictured). Mop up the juicy goodness with sour dough bread."
"A popular attraction at various pop-up events last summer keep your eye on their website to see where they will be frying/poaching/scrambling next."

Cortado, Gainsborough Studios, N1 5EA - Every Saturday and Sunday 9am till 4pm.
"If you're on a budget (like I am), tired of greasy spoon offerings and unable to fork out for poncy brunch venues, Dishoom offers a cheap brunch with a twist," says Brogan Driscoll, HuffPost UK Lifestyle. "It's ridiculously good value for central London."
"Try the bombay omelette - a personal favourite."

Dave Leonard, managing editor at HuffPost UK says: "Easily one of Shoreditch’s hidden gems. This Conran owned ‘caff’ serves up one of the best full english breakfasts in London."
He added: "They also have a market shop so after brunch you can pick up fresh bread, cakes and juices."

Food is great, but the setting is better.
Set in a listed warehouse, the recently-refurbished interior of Village East is mix of cosy leather-seated booths, soft lighting and exposed brick work.
The Bloody Mary and Cucumber Mary (replace tomato juice with cucumber) are perfect for the weekend hangover, while the campfire breakfast (slow-roasted pork shoulder, baked beans and fried eggs) is the perfect comforting meal for the morning-after-the-night-before.
The vegetarian breakfast has a bizarre twist (we've never eaten eggs with carrot and quinoa before, but it takes all sorts), but the fresh grapefruit offers a light and refreshing end to a great brunch experience.

"Electric Diner's breakfast of quinoa, avocado, green beans and poached egg holds a special place in my heart -- not only is it bloody delicious, but sets the day up pretty nicely," says Brogan Driscoll, HuffPost UK Lifestyle.
"Located in the heart of busy Portobello Market - the outside seating area is perfect for people watching, the inside is perfect for hiding from the crowds.
"Low lighting, exposed brick work, red-seated booths - even at its busiest, it still feels pretty private."
I popped down to the Montagu, tucked away behind Marble Arch station after hearing they started an 'Italian style brunch'. The room for brunch is light and airy - vast ceilings that can conceal plenty of chatter after a few drinks.
And drinks there are - the biggest appeal is endless Prosecco and the spicy Bloody Marys.
Brunch is divided into three parts - starters, mains and desserts, but my favourite parts were the starter and desserts. Plates of antipasti, cheese, cold cuts and salads were spot on, with loaves of fresh bread. The mains featured an alright steak - but not a patch, we felt, on the first course.
Desserts were a triumph - short stacks of tiramisu, tiny tarts and New York-style cheesecake.
We tottered out thoroughly tipsy and stuffed. At £59 it is at the upper end of the scale, but worth it and perfect for group brunches, we feel.
