What is better than a hearty, good quality brunch?
One with gorgeous view and a whole host of wildlife.
And when I say wildlife, I mean all the animals from moorhens and Canadian geese to the denim-fur clad hipsters and their prized petits pooches. This is Victoria Park; this is the epitome of gentrification.
The Pavilion Café on the edge of the lake has nestled right in on the edge of the lake. And it’s perfect for a glorious weekend brunch.
Admire the hipsters whilst sipping a very fresh apple and beetroot juice.
Reminisce over last night’s party with Monmouth coffee cappuccino.
And let’s not forget the sausage and bacon sourced from the outstanding Ginger Pig butchers. In fact, I could never forget Ginger Pig bacon. I think I would
go crazy become even crazier if I were told I could never eat it again (vegetarians: beware – it will turn you).
The Full English (~£9?) is great. Everything is cooked to perfection. The sourdough toast is moreish and not too dry. The only slightly strange item is the home-made beans, which contain fennel and are just plain peculiar.
Veggies – there are terats for you too. The veggie breakfast comes with spinach and halloumi as well as all the usual items.
The Pavilion Café 4/5 – Breakfast, brunch, lunch? It doesn’t matter. Get your Full English here and enjoy the view.
