We’ve partnered with the amazing restaurant app CAKE to give one of you lucky readers a night out worth £200. No, your eyes are not mistaken, £200. We’ve covered the babysitting; CAKE have sorted the food – it doesn’t get much better than that.
As the competition deadline is fast approaching (midnight, 27th June), we wanted to give you some fresh ideas as to where you can splash the CAKE cash. Last time we focused on dinner, this week we’ve decided to brunch it up.
1. HALLY’S CAFÉ, Parsons Green
Fancy going on holiday without having to pack your bags? Of course you do. Walking into Hally’s is just like that. It’s light, bright and serene. It’s as if someone took Hally’s from a sunny beachfront in California and placed her in Parsons Green.
Hally’s serve a variety of brunch items, but it’s their avo on sourdough toast that’s the real star of the menu. Yes, the avocado seems to have gone from zero to food-hero overnight, but with Hally’s avo brunch, you can see why the little fella’s so popular. The dish is light, refreshing, and absolutely delicious. So get down there now, before they run out!
2. SHOT ESPRESSO, Parsons Green
Staying in Parsons Green, we’re going for a 5-minute walk up to Shot Espresso, the trendy place-to-be. If you’re a coffee lover, then you already know about Shot Espresso. If you don’t, then do you even like coffee? Their drinks are rich, smooth, and exactly like coffee should be. They specialise in the stuff, and oh boy, it shows.
How do you like your eggs in the morning? Dean Martin liked his with a kiss, but he would’ve traded that in a heartbeat had he been to Shot Espresso. Their poached eggs are runny, silky, and all so satisfying. Throw in a toasted English muffin and creamy Hollandaise sauce, and you’ve got yourself the perfect match of crafted coffee and fab food.
You can thank us later.
3. DRINK, SHOP & DO, Kings Cross
Drink, Shop & Do is an eclectic café specialising in fun. Visit during the day and you’ll hear laughter, see board game city, and find yourself immersed in a sea of smiling faces.
Brunch is about good food, and even better coffee, right? Not anymore. Drink, Shop & Do have replaced the word coffee with a little thing called Prosecco, and it’s going down a storm.
£25 gets you bottomless Prosecco and an unlimited supply of bagels – our favourite is topped with sun-blushed tomatoes, tapenade and sweet herbs – but there are plenty to choose from. You’ll leave feeling full, merry, and eager to find the nearest bar!
So go on down, let loose, and treat yourself – you deserve it.
And remember, this month we’ve teamed up with restaurant app CAKE to offer you the chance to win a £200 night out in London. Head over to our Facebook page to tell us why you need a night out for your chance to win!
