Book & Brunch Sundays
at Lowndes Bar & Kitchen

Book and Brunch Sundays

Books, brunches and Sundays are three of my favourite things. In fact, they might even be my top three things. Add in beautiful Belgravia, supporting an independent book shop and delicious food and I’m literally in heaven.

Book & Brunch Sundays at Lowndes Bar & Kitchen are adding a little literary bliss in Belgravia, by teaming up their gorgeous brunch with local indie book shop Belgravia Books, who include a brand new paperback specially selected by themselves, as part of the brunch, for you to keep.

Home Sweet Home Brunch
(and win £100 to spend at TK Maxx!)

Poppy-Loves-TKMAXX-Home

To say that I was jetlagged when I arrived in Seattle, is a gross understatement. But, take that to a whole new level and you’ve nearly got to the state I was in when I arrived home in London on Friday morning.

I could barely see straight I was so tired… but I had to stay awake. I was on a Keep Awake Mission, determined to not let the jet lag beat me… so I abandoned my suitcase full of dirty laundry and headed out for a walk in the sunshine (sunshine!) in Walthamstow.

Brunching on Baker Street

Bill's-Baker-Street-Brunch-Poppy-Loves

I find that things get sorted out over brunch. Problems are solved, difficulties are unpicked and the world is put to rights. It’s my favourite meal hands down. Apart from cake and tea. And yes, that’s a meal.

Brunch is made even better when you can share it with a bestie, and that is exactly what I did last week, at Bill’s on Baker Street.

Berlin Brünch has arrived

German Gymnasium

I have never taken a trip to Berlin (I REALLY want to go) but even though I’ve never been, the whispers of the legend of their famous brunch has travelled over the seas and is something I’ve always longed to indulge in… (not the main reason I want to go to Berlin, but yes, it’s up there).

Aussie pals, an evacuation
and brunch at Granger & Co

Grange and Co

They know what they’re doing in the latte department. Ho yes.

Years ago, I worked in North Carolina as a Camp Leader for Camp America. I did it for three years and had around 180 teenagers in my charge at any one time. Let’s not think about that.

I was also responsible for the counsellors, who were looking after these teens. These counsellors were from all over the world, and included Lou from Brisbane Australia and Ami from London.

Anyway, they met on camp, they fell in love over a cook-out campfire and now they both live in Oz. And obviously this happy ending is ENTIRELY down to me.

Lazy Breakfast at Green Room Café

Green-Room-Cafe-Stoke-Newington-29

I recently met Gem in Stoke Newington for a late and lazy brekky. I’m not sure what time breakfast turns into brunch, but this was around 11:30. So definitely brunch territory, but I felt that by calling it breakfast I could justify a late lunch as well.

Green Room Café is situated on the ever so pretty Church Street in Stoke Newington – it used to be only a florist, but now the back has been transformed into a bright and airy café, with a very large eating space outside as well, where you can sit, nibble and natter in the sunshine amidst the plants and flowers.

Sunday Brunch on Saturday.
At Sunday. (Confused?)

Sunday brunch

I got back from hopping around the Greek islands on Friday afternoon, tired and weary from all the travelling… So on Saturday morning, I woke up ravenous and in need of glorious yummy sustenance. LM and I headed out into the great sunny outdoors to hunt down a brunch to end all brunches.

And we found the mothership.

Brunch at The Montagu

Brunch at
The Montagu

I’m sorry? ‘All-I-can-eat’ and as much complimentary Prosecco as I can handle? Really? Oh, ok then. And I think I’ll take my pal NJ with me too. Because a) she’s lovely and b) she can drink more Prosecco than me.

I already love the Hyatt Churchill. For this reason. And this. But the amazing New York style Buffet Brunch at The Montagu, really has made me fall in love with it even more.
