The Weekender: Sunday Brunch Ideas

If there's anything EDL loves, it's a good Sunday brunch. So much so, we threw a brunch party that one time. That one didn't go too well so we went back to the drawing board to fix some things. This time, we think we have it all figured out. The details will be released in due time.

Until then, here are our top Sunday brunch picks. 


1291 Akin Adesola St, Victoria Island, Lagos
0809 662 2288

delis lagos

FOLLY: Ask any of our Instagram followers what EDL's favourite restaurant is and I'm sure they'll tell you Deli's (or RSVP).

NOSA: From the natural light to the import beer, it's really easy to see why Delis is my favorite spot in Lagos right now. 


6 Musa Yar'Adua Street. Victoria Island, Lagos


FOLLY: Last time we were here, management told us they'll be moving to a new location soon.

NOSA: They're moving to some place off Awolowo Road, I think. And we all know Awolowo Road is the 5th circle of hell so you probably want to get to Mansilla before they move. Brunch is from noon till 3pm.

The Foundry

Plot 288B Ajose Adeogun Street, Victoria Island. Lagos
0809 654 0409. 0809 654 0408


FOLLY: The Foundry is a guilty pleasure of mine. After going to Casa Lydia for so long, The Foundry gave me something new to transition into.

NOSA: Foundry can be real inconsistent with their brunch, but as long as their regular chef is back from church, their brunch offering is excellent. 

FOLLY: In addition to the food, there are two other things I particularly like about this spot. They are the comfortable couch like chairs and the pseudo privacy the booths give, and the familiar faces as many of the waiters have been there for years.

Bistro 7

273 Kofo Abayomi St, Victoria Island, Lagos
0807 668 7777


FOLLY: I don't go here as often as I'd like because I don't think it's worth the money. I think it's the endless people watching that keeps me coming back.

Southern Sun

47 Alfred Rewane Rd, Ikoyi, Lagos
01 280 5200


FOLLY: Bistro 7 is beans compared to how expensive Southern Sun is. So if I hardly go to Bistro 7, I seldom go to Southern Sun.

NOSA: The food, in itself, isn't that great. The entire package, however, is excellent. I mean, you're getting bottomless mimosas. NOBODY else in Lagos does that.

FOLLY: I don't even go here for the food, I'm only ever here for the drinks.
