This bar and restaurant in Marylebone is known for serving Peruvian-inspired dishes with a touch of British' best for years now, and we simply adore their culinary offerings. Their rustic cooking techniques and expertly-made cocktails with the use of British herbs and seasonal berries are to die for. For a weekend brunch, we're especially looking forward to try the their hot smoked salmon served in a warm bowl with vibrantly green wild garlic, roasted barley and a poached egg. Definitely a must when you visit!

Gail's Artisan Bakery
This adorable coffee shop in 128 Wardour Street is perfect for city lovers who want to seek the best caffeine offerings in the metro this weekend. Apart from coffee, they also offer cakes and other treats for a delightful experience. If you're looking to pair your espresso with something palatable, then order the caramelised garlic bread or the French dark sourdough, or maybe the lovely cinnamon buns they do for a brilliant accompaniment. And in case you can't leave the house because you have allergies or flu, the best thing about Gail's is that they deliver!

Their Oriental offerings include the "gai yang" which is a grilled chicken leg with jaew dipping sauce as well as the "som tam", a green papaya salad in Bangkok or Isaan style which we love!
