To brunch is a lifestyle choice, and it’s one that we take very seriously. If you’re looking for a local spot with fresh and beautiful food — and a bit of whimsy to boot — here are our picks for brunch this weekend:
New to the streets of the City Centre, No. 35 Restaurant is a bright and friendly option for those who like fresh, locally sourced food. Start with an artisan coffee and pastry, then order one of the truly filling breakfast options to keep you going all day. We recommend the Smashed Avo: A thick slice of sourdough toast smothered in avocado and topped with a couple poached eggs. Add smoked salmon or bacon for a decadent treat.
No need to book ahead; they have plenty of space.
Cafe Chambers Cafe Chambers is steeped in the history of the United States, which makes its classic American breakfasts uniquely on brand. It’s said that the original contract for the Mayflower was drafted inside the cafe’s walls, and Chambers retains a lot of that early modern charm, especially if you snag a table upstairs, where you’ll get a unique view of the Cathedral. This is the place to fulfill your American pancake dreams. After indulging in the all-day breakfast, wash down your meal with a thick milkshake or a fresh, fruity smoothie. We’re such fans that we’ll often pop in just for a frozen drink to sip as we amble around the city.
