Part one of this series can be found here.

In my previous post, I pointed you in the direction of a few brunch recipes so you could cook a great dish at home.

But how about when you just really fancy some brunch cooked for you?

Here’s a list of resources to help you find a perfect venue, as well as links to some of my favourite brunch spots around the world.

The resources

Where the f*** should I go to eat – A tongue in cheek randomiser based on your location. Mostly this is pot luck, but does throw up some gems. Definitely one for the risk takers.

Urban Spoon – indispensible in Australia, this user focused website has no holds barred when it comes to reviews, and the score can sometimes be the decider between one place or the other. This is ideal if you’re heading out on a city break and want to do some forward planning.

Crave – With focus on the Gold Coast, this is a great resource of all things brunch for one of Australia’s most popular tourism destinations.

The book

loney planet


Lonely Planet‘s new book, the world’s best brunches combines the best of both worlds, recipes AND destinations. Deffo worth picking up. Order it here.

The restaurants

LondonThe Breakfast Club – definitely one of those deemed worthy of the phrase ‘worth the wait’ – be prepared to queue at weekends.

ManchesterSaints and Scholars – Tucked away in leafy Didsbury, this hole in the wall style restaurant is cosy, and the food is excellent and very very reasonable. A full english will only set you back about £6. Bargain.

MelbourneTwo Little Pigs – This is the nicest place I’ve eaten at in Melbourne. Cured meats and gorgeous coffee a plenty. I’d also recommend sharing the generous portion truffle fries as a cheeky addition.

MelbourneFifty Acres – I’ve already reviewed this place, and their excellent breakfast burrito.

BrisbaneReverends – The nicest smashed avo on toast in Australia.(Coffee is incredible too).

Still, whether you’re an eggs or burger type of brunch person, there is no doubt that’s it’s an amazing meal loved by pretty much everyone. Personally, I love how it brings everyone together. I’m always keen to hear of other places, now matter where they are, so let me know your favourite brunch spot in the comments box below.

N.B This and the previous post were NOT sponsored by Lonely Planet, I just LOVE them.
