An Ode to a Lazy Sunday Brunch | Self Care

April 19, 2018

When I was younger and lived at home Sunday was all about the Sunday lunch. But as a fully fledged (I can say that now I’m almost a home owner right?!) the Lazy Sunday brunch is my thing.

Close friends of mine know that I’d quite happily make brunch plans on a Sunday over roast dinner plans. It might just be me, but I tell you what, when I’m hungover brunch wins. Not that I’m hungover much anymore… My Saturday night’s tend to be quieter these days, with the whole saving to buy a house thing. But I do like a lie in on a Sunday, and brunch is that meal between breakfast and lunch that most of my Sunday’s happen to require. Our Sunday dinners when they happen later in the day tend to be quite different too. Maybe we’re a bit backwards or something?!


With Sunday there’s nothing quite like the smell of cooking bacon, or slightly burnt toast coming from the kitchen. The steaming hot, comforting cup of tea that can put the world to rights or the coffee that wakes your brain up. Dr W and I mainly plan weekends around or at least to involve brunch of some kind. One of our most recent was this croissant filled with melted cheese, ham, avocado and chilli jam. It was glorious, tasty and perfect for a lazy Sunday.


My Top Brunch Recommendations

Here are a few brunches that I seriously loved and would recommend you check out:

My rich and delicious Black Pudding Baked Eggs recipe.

Dr W created this amazing Cheeseburger Hash recipe with leftover burgers.

My most decadent bottomless brunch at Le Pont de La Tour London.

My favourite wholesome brunch in Worcester at Wayland’s Yard.

One of the best girlie brunches I have ever had at Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston.

An alternative brunch at Zouk Manchester.


So let me know, are you like me the mega brunch fan? Or are do you prefer the roast dinner laden Sunday? How do you celebrate Sundays?

    Ooooh I do love a brunch – especially if booze is involved. Boston do incredible brunches – I am very fortunate that I live 5 minutes away from one (although not so fortunate for my bank balance!) xx

      Hahaha! It would definitely be dangerous if I lived that close!

    Cheese burger hash sounds AMAZING. Have you ever tried the cheese burger toaster from Home Sweet Home in Manchester? I think you’d like it. What isn’t made better by burgers?!

      It was amazing! Yeah the cheeseburger toastie is totally the best!

    For us, Sundays are a quick breakfast before Church and then a Sunday dinner. Brunch is for Saturdays!

      To be honest I like an indulgent breakfast on both days 🙂

    I am a brunch fan too, as much as I do love a Sunday roast. My favourite has to be a poached egg on toast, even better if avocado and bacon are involved!

      Avo, bacon, eggs – the perfect combo!

    Oh, I’m with you! Brunch beats a roast hands down – I’ve yet to try bottomless brunch but intend to. Good luck with the house buying!

      Thank you – we’re almost done with the process! Moving next week 🙂 You definitely need to check out a bottomless brunch!

    It’s interesting to read about your family traditions. For me (or I should say us), Sunday is never been about food. Sunday is all about activities for us.

      We would go for a long walk and come back to have Sunday lunch. Dr W and I are much the same, although with moving house we’ve been making the most of lazy Sundays because we are usually very active on a Saturday!
