Best things to do in Ouseburn


3. Munch Some Brunch with Ernest…

There are loads of great food spots in the Ouseburn (and I’ve covered plenty more coming up soon).

But of them all, Ernest is the most well-known.

They call themselves an “independent cafe bar,” but they’re most famous for their brunch offerings. Among the breakfasty bonanzas, you’ll find all the egg variations you could ever imagine (plus loads more you probably can’t imagine), homemade porridge, cinnamon French toast, and one of the best English breakfasts I’ve ever had.

All the food is hearty and tasty, and loads of it is locally sourced.

Other than brunch, they serve grazing platters, hash bowls, lots of lunch and dinner options, and a massive range of interesting drinks.

If you’re only gonna eat at one place in the Ouseburn, it should probably be here.

On top of all foodie fun, Ernest is also a popular late-night spot, especially on weekends. They often host lots of interesting events (usually advertised on Facebook), including DJ sets, markets, seasonal specials, and more.
