The Weekend Warriors Guide to Brunch
Posted in: RESTAURANTS AND CAFES
Brunch is pretty much one of the things we all look forward to during the weekends; it's the perfect reward for having the job well done at work. However, brunching with your favourite people comes the keen planning so you get things right. You never want to be the group that shows up at the brunch spot five minutes before they close, right? Planning ahead is one of the best ways to become a brunch warrior every weekend. Below we give you tips on how to brunch like a true-blue weekend warrior:
Location, Location, Location
Village East, 171-173 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3UW, United Kingdom
Brunch is as much about the food as it is about the location. You never want to be in a group of 5 or 6 and the restaurant is no more than a hole in the wall. You also don’t want to pick a place that is in the middle of nowhere, and no one can find it. Location is one of the most important parts of brunch, so be picky. Even if the place has the best waffles on the planet you don’t want to be over crowded and spill your coffee over them because it’s too crammed.

As casual as Brunch might be you still need to make reservations. Brunch is best enjoyed with a group and parties of 5 or more have to make sure they are calling ahead. A quick call to a restaurant ahead of time can be the difference between your group getting served in a timely manner or your group being so disorganized you cancel plans. Calling ahead is also a basic courtesy to a restaurant to prep for you as well.

The last thing you want to be is that group that takes 10 hours to order and then holds up the whole restaurant. Take a peek of the menu ahead of time and this will significantly cut the wait time down, and leave more time for real conversation and Mimosas. Also when you browse ahead it can help the restaurant serve you faster, meaning more time to actually enjoy the experience.
Sharing is a great way to being the cost of brunch down (and leave room for more Mimosas). Often time’s restaurant will have Bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Mary’s, which can cut the costs of drinks. Brunch is also a large meal and sharing plates can one make the meal more interesting and most importantly leave a few extra bills in your pocket after a weekend out!
Remember LRBS (Location, Reservations, Browse & Share) and your brunch adventure will be as smooth as the latte waiting for you at the café!
