Here goes the last blog post of February – where’s the time gone? This one is all about my number one babe, brunch. Brunch is serious stuff in Berlin and that’s what I like to hear! Brunch is *probably* my favourite food group and I am all about breakfast food at any time of the day. When we headed to Berlin we were really excited about the coffee culture and the tasty brunch treats. Here are my fave three destinations that we hit up whilst we were in the German capital.
La Bottega Linka is one of the best places in Prague for breakfast or brunch (and even lunch actually, we went there twice on our trip!). It’s a seriously cool industrial-feeling cafe with incredible food.
We discovered this place on Instagram, naturally, and headed there for our first meal when we’d landed in Prague. We needed lunch! For our first meal we had a picnic style lunch of different salads and then bread and freshly cut meats and cheese. They have a deli in the cafe with all of these ready to go and everything looked amazing. We had such a delicious lunch and we spied this ‘Sweet Breakfast’ on the menu so decided to book for our last morning in Prague.
Brunch, the meal of our generation, right? I don’t think anyone’s eaten as much #avocadotoast or eggs with a side of coffee than Gen Z, right? Definitely and I’m not complaining. Brunch has to be one of my favourite meals ever and it’s basically what all of our holidays and trips revolve around. During our Dublin trip, we headed to the well-recommended San Lorenzo’s, a New York/Italian style restaurant in the heart of the city centre. You can check our their brunch menu or read on for a taste of our experience!
Brunch is probably one of my favourite meals, it’s got to be said! I’m always super hungry for it because I’ve basically skipped breakfast and when it comes to 11 am, I’m so ready for a feast. We headed down to Pieminister to try their new £5 Brunch menu. I know what you’re thinking… Pies? For brunch? Not sure.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Said, someone once and now everyone’s stolen their saying. But, still, it is super important to eat breakfast because you’ve essentially been ‘fasting’ all night whilst you’ve been asleep. I don’t believe that you need to eat at a certain time, like an hour after waking, or anything like that because I’ve not seen evidence that it really matters. I usually eat about 1-1.5 hours after waking up on weekdays and it’s definitely within 30 mins on weekends when showering before eating is 100% not necessary.
I’m always on the look out for tasty places for coffee, breakfast and brunch and when I discovered Bold Street Coffee in Liverpool it fast became my favourite place in the city. Hands down! I mean, I loved Slim’s Pork Chop Express for our evening meal but Bold Street Coffee was so good we had breakfast there twice in two days. I just couldn’t get enough of those scrambled eggs and bacon.
Brunch is big business in Barcelona! We found that breakfast, brunch, and lunch were super easy meals to find great places to eat but dinner was a little more difficult. That said, here are my top 3 (& a bonus doughnut place) eateries in Barca for an amazing brunch. Whether you love a healthy brunch or a giant stack of pancakes I’ve got something for you here.
During our Oxford escape we discovered The Handle Bar, an amazing hidden cafe and restaurant tucked into a side street in the middle of the city centre. They serve brunch all day which is amazing as we got there around lunch time but didn’t fancy an actual lunch in terms of a salad or a burger so we opted for some serious brunch goals. The menu was packed with pancakes, granola, brioche buns and your classic breakfast choices too.
If you’re looking for a seriously amazing brunch and you’re in Manchester city centre then you need, need, need, to go Federal Cafe Bar! We hunted these guys out on Instagram before we headed to Manchester the other weekend as we, as you probably know, love food and we love to discover new places.
A few weekends ago I headed ‘down London’, as my Nan would say, to see one of my gorgeous best friends in her new flat. We had the most food-fuelled couple of days and it was awesome. I wanted to share the places that we headed to with you guys just in case you’re heading to Brixton anytime soon! There were a million and one amazing looking cafes, pubs and bars that I wanted to try but these were the ones we ended up with and they were all delicious.
