I booked brunch here for my boyfriends birthday. It was a great choice. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The food, we had the high society eggs benedict, was delicious.

With chic European café style and a buzzing bohemian ambience, Balans Soho Society Seven Dials Café serves up an eclectic all-day menu of gourmet international dishes, popular brunches, and all kinds of signature cocktails.

Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and morale boosting cocktails, the Balans Soho Society menu reflects the restaurant’s libertine outlook. Savour the pulled pork wrap with bourbon-flamed barbecue sauce and triple-cooked chips, Cornish crab linguine with chilli, or the Infamous Balans Burger, packed with Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, dill pickle and red onion. Brunches here are hugely popular, with classic recipes like eggs Benedict sitting alongside more contemporary options, like Cornish crab with pink grapefruit, squid ink crackers, avocado purée, and wood sorrel.

The plush interior at Balans Soho Society in Covent Garden provides the perfect spot to sample something indulgent from the eclectic cocktail list. Alongside the fine wine selection at the bar, there are a great selection of wonderfully inventive signature cocktails.

A stylish, bustling eatery in one of London's most vibrant areas, Balans Soho Society Seven Dials Café is a 3-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Lovely place, very central ie right next to the bar we were drinking in. Lovely light and airy café, very minimal decor. Small menu but the food was amazing. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Very reasonable for such a central and popular touristy area. My only gripe was that the wine we wanted wasn't available but the staff did let us taste an alternative

    We went for a late brunch on a Sunday, the place was rather empty, still we waited for a long time for our food. My friend asked for pancakes with banana and berries and was told there will be a surcharge as the menu included only one option (banana OR berries). She said it’s fine. When the food came, we counted 4-5 thin slices of banana and 3 berries. Not to be petty, but charging £2 for 3 berries seems a bit steep, even if it’s Covent Garden. When we asked for the bill, again, we waited for a long time, even though at that time, there seemed to be 2 tables occupied.
    Won’t be coming back very soon to be honest.

    The service we received was exceptional from all members of the team. From the greeting to the quality of food and drink we were treated with the utmost care and genuine hospitality. This was a birthday celebration and we enjoyed wonderful meals from the new Summer Menu which we would highly recommend!

    Restaurant was half empty but food took a long time to get to the table. We had lunch because brunch is only available on weekends.
    I ordered the hamburger and when I opened it the bacon and cheese was missing... of course the waitress said sorry and the problem was solved, but you get an idea of how the kitchen works.
    Expensive cocktails.

    What a wonderful brunch! We were warmly welcomed, enjoyed the most delicious pancakes and coffees and had top class service!

    GREAT staff and the regular great food, menu and atmosphere of Balan's. Only downside is that they'd ran out of a lot of items in the menu and didn't offer anything to make up for it. Surely not the serving staff's fault, but of its management.

    The staff at Balans were very lovely,
    and the perfect side of attentiveness and leaving us to it,
    for our important meeting.

    The food was really great, the poshed up Eggs Benedict went down very well!

    Many thanks for everything!
    Hoping to come again soon,

    Love coming to Balans, and this branch particularly nice for brunch. Manager and staff friendly, and a good range of dishes. Like new summer desserts.
