Everyone loves brunch, and with their new weekend breakfast menu, Galvin Brasserie are getting in on the trend.
As with any good breakfast, eggs are the star of the show here. The Scottish Eggs Benedict were perfectly poached, served with a generous portion of flavoursome smoked salmon, and topped with a masterful hollandaise that managed to be light without losing any of its trademark richness. For something a little more unusual, opt for the delicious baked duck egg with truffle and potato, complimented by sticky sweet caramelised onions and a moreish dusting of Parmesan.
Kids are made more than welcome too, with activity packs handed out upon arrival and a well stocked menu ranging from homemade burgers to mini Scottish breakfasts. At the weekend, kids under 10 eat free, too.
To end on a decidedly adult note, we loved the Champagne breakfast cocktail, given depth by a dash of brandy, and their signature Bloody Mary is a great way to start the day.
