If the thought of opening the breakfast cupboard to greet the dull remnants of a half eaten box of Kelloggs is keeping you horizontal, check out our eclectic array of mouthwatering brunch options; just the thing to entice you out of the land of nod, and into the land of the living…
For Rustic Chic: Marmalade, Brighton
Willy Wonka meets Australian chef, Donna Hay, is how the team at Marmalade describe its style. If you can resist the beautiful cakes on display, the fresh salads are fantastic. Not over-fussy, just beautiful and colourful. And with interesting ingredient combinations that make the mouth water. Great décor, great atmosphere, and an all round great brunch!
For Divine Dining: Alma de Cuba, Liverpool
Take your breakfast to the high heavens in the ambience of Liverpool’s Cuban themed converted church, renowned for delivering the ultimate Sunday entertainment offering in the form of a live Gospel choir. And it’s not just the music that’s geared to tantalise the senses; on offer are such tempting treats as salmon in a watermelon and papaya salad, and a succulent lamb brochette. All this in the company of singers with enough talent to inspire you to join a convent, or at least go home and watch Sister Act.
For Seaside meets Stateside: Dylan’s, Menai Bridge, North Wales
Idyllically situated on the waterfront of the wooded Menai Straits, Dylan whips up a traditional Welsh brunch with an American twist. Welsh bacon in maple syrup, crempogs, potted pulled pork and crab fish cakes are just some of the options to have you salivating over the menu. Couple that with an alfresco balcony overlooking the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, and you have the ultimate brunch spot to bounce out of bed for.
For Farmland Feasting: St Werburgh’s City Farm, Bristol
Looking like somewhere Bilbo Baggins might take up residency, St Werburghs’s is a quirky, rustic and child friendly choice. Much more than an eatery, the City Farm offers free entry to the farm, a community garden, as well as an adventure playground for burning off excess energy. Organic, free range and locally sourced, you couldn't ask for a better choice for bringing you closer to nature, as well as giving the kids all the fun and nutrition a happy meal never could.
For Worse For Wear Sundays: Dirty Burger, Whitechapel
… and dirty it is. Dripping with juicy fat and tomato juice, their bowl of fry up is the kind of food that is capable of mopping up any alcohol in your stomach with the voracity of an industrial detergent. For a more delicate and decidedly healthier option, their tomato, avocado and egg muffin is worth donning shades and venturing out the house for. A simple menu of just four brunch options, it’s perfect for days when you really can’t handle thinking too much.
