Brunch like a champion at German Gymnasium. This Kings Cross venue hosted the indoor events for London's first Olympic Games in 1866, but these days it is a slick restaurant, bar and outdoor terrace.

In its first life, German Gymnasium was exactly just that- built in 1865 for the German Gymnastics Society, the building was England's first purpose-built gymnasium and was funded by London's German Community. 

These days, it's one of the best Breakfast spots out there. German Gymnasium gives a nod to the site's German heritage with a range of Mittel-European dishes on the menu.

Located in the heart of King's Cross, German Gymnasium’s beautiful Grade 2 Listed historical building is divided into three parts: Our ground floor is home to the Grand Café, serving up your favourite German and Mittel-European fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Upstairs, our Restaurant takes diners on a journey around the lesser known aspects of German cuisine, with a sophisticated seasonal menu. Sharing the first floor with the Restaurant is the chic Meister Bar, the ultimate cocktail destination in Kings Cross, emulating the evening glamour you’d find in Berlin.

Start your day properly throughout the week with a hearty Breakfast in the Grand Cafe. We recommend trying one of their 'GG Specials', a variety of German-influenced dishes such as a Berlin or The German Gymnasium Breakfast- a feast of Scrambled eggs, Nürnberger sausages, Black Forest ham, tomato, mushrooms, potato rösti and sourdough toast
