Hi I’m Becky and I think with my belly 80% of the time. I get notoriously hangry and my finace generally fixes it by suggesting brunch.
I love brunch. It’s the best meal of them all. At the weekend, we’re a terrible couple at getting up and embracing day. We both really, really love sleeping. The only rule The Geek has only given me in our whole relationship is that I’m not allowed to wake him up before 10am on a weekend unless it’s an emergency or I’m doing something. With this rule in place, breakfast is forgotten on a weekend so we embrace brunch. We love discovering new places and in the past year or so, we’ve found some wonderful hidden gems across Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire.
These places are out of the city centre. Wolverhampton is slowly on the climb and it’s brilliant to see it. I think these independent small businesses are really helping Wolverhampton too. Each one is wonderfully quirky and do an awesome brunch. So, without further ado, here’s Blogger & The Geek’s top 4 spots:
My colleague at work recommended me this. It’s located off the Stafford Road in Wolverhampton near Fordhouses and on the way to the M54 junction. The Geek and I love it. It’s a cute little cafe selling an array of breakfasts, toasties, cakes and jacket potatoes. My favourite is definetely the tiger bread toasties. It’s completely spoilt me for toasties as the bread is beautifully thick and they smoother it in all the cheese. Another bonus is that it’s reasonably well priced with breakfast for 2 and a coffee costing around £10.00. Keep in mind though that it can get busy at the weekend!
2. Gluttons for Nourishment
My first discovering in the Wolverhampton brunch quest after the same colleague recommended their afternoon tea for my Mum’s birthday which I did a post on here. It’s the cutest vintage cafe in the village of Tettenhall that sells the best homemade cakes. They have gorgeous doorstop thick slices of cakes which finish a lunch date here perfectly. The Geek’s also a huge fan of their pancakes; they are super light and fluffy and come with the usual bacon and maple sauce. Delicious!
The Village is our current favourite at the moment and is the pricier out of the 5. I did do a post on our first visit here but since then, we’ve gone back time and time again. Located in the South Staffordshire village of Codsall, it’s part bakery and bistro and the sells the most amazing food. All the breads for their menu is made fresh from the bakery. One of my favourites off the menu is the salted beef on rye bread or the 3 cheese sourdough toastie. It’ll fill you up for the whole day. Last time The Geek and I went we needed a 2 hour nap afterwards (in our defense, we were up since 8) and didn’t eat till the next day.
This is my dog friendly go to. It’s off the old Wombourne train line near Smestow Valley Nature Reserve. it’s our go to place to finish off a long dog walk. It sells perfect lunch snacks as well as the most delicious cakes. The coffee and walnut one is my absolute favourite with a latte. The one thing I really love about Cupcake Lane is that you can sit outside on the old station platform and they provide blankets, the dogs have water bowls and there’s even a mini childrens play park.
These are just a few of our favourite spots and we’re always on the look out for more. If your local and know of anywhere, let me know in the comments!
