We are currently awaiting a new fridge freezer and thus eating our way through the old one. This recipe is a really quick and easy soup for the winter months ahead, and will make short work of a bag of frozen peas! Continue reading “Pea Soup with Crispy Bacon”
A decent breakfast cafe on your doorstep is essential for good weekend living, and where better to brunch than Montys in Bruntsfield.
First thing – make sure you book, Montpeliers is always packed at the weekend, but they are great at squeezing you in if they can.
Recently refurbished, Montpeliers is now a very lovely, bright space with a French cafe feel – lots of light wood, huge windows, wrought iron features and exposed lightbulbs. The crockery is cute and cool at the same time, and the breakfast menu is delicious.
For a really serious brunch you can choose The Fully Monty – ‘the biggest brunch in Bruntsfield’. However this time we stuck to what we know best.
Perfectly poached eggs benedict with really crispy bacon and a good hollandaise sauce….
And an indulgent stack of banana pancakes with butterscotch sauce and creme fraiche.
Looks tasty right? Next time we go I’ve got my eye on the Mexican tortilla or the french toast, but that’s all for now.
Enjoy brunchers. x
