There's nothing better than spending a long and lazy morning catching up with friends. Sometimes you just want to take things easy, so why not head out for brunch? Here in Guernsey we’re spoilt for choice, so let us guide you through some of our favourite kiosks, cafes and restaurants to set you up for the day.
From an authentic Croque Monsieur to a freshly baked croissant, COCOis likely the closest you’ll come to feeling like you’re in France this year. We also love pretty much anything they serve with eggs. For a true Parisien feel, grab a paper and a chic scarf to keep you warm and have your coffee on the outside tables that spill out on to the pavement. La vie est belle!
With one of the most extensive breakfast menus around and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere The Kiln at Oatlands is a firm favourite of ours. And it seems we’re not alone, so be sure to book in advance!
Tucked away in a cellar bar in a quiet street in the centre of town, Fat Rascal is a popular brunch spot, with something for everyone. Classics, Benedicts, pancakes and french toast... or if you're feeling more adventurous try the Rascal Rancheros grilled tortilla or Turkish eggs. Look out for their Bottomless Brunch specials - be quick when they come around, they book up fast!
Why not start your day on the driving range, and place your breakfast order while you practice your swing. The Bar and Grill is right next to the range, and you can order while you play, using their handy app.
The view is unbeatable, and the food is pretty good too! From soft boiled egg with soldiers to Rocquaine Bay oysters, there’s something for everyone at Octopus. A popular choice for families and for those who want to while their days away with a cappucino and a sea view.
Probably the best bacon buttie on the island… we should know, we’ve had a few over the years from Richmond Kiosk.
Who says you can’t have cake for breakfast? We say. call it brunch and follow it up with a bracing walk along the coast. The portion sizes at Cobo Tea Room might make it difficult to follow through on that walk, so maybe it’s best to get that in first! And actually, the tea room has a great breakfast menu at the weekends, so bring some friends and stay a while.
An old favourite. Their recently revamped breakfast menu has a few traditional favourites and a couple of surprises too. You can sit in the front and watch the world go by in the Pollet, or choose a window table at the back with views over the harbour… and don’t forget the terrace out back if it’s a nice morning. Christies is a hidden gem for sure.
If you're looking to combine brunch with a dog walk , then Surfside at Poirt Soif is the place for you. With sheltered outdoor seating, it’s the perfect spot to bring your pooch and enjoy a bite to eat and coffee. There are special doggie treats for you pooch too, so no need to share your sausages.
