We recently tried the ‘Best of the Brits’ Urban Picnic Brunch at Vida Downtown, inclusive of Pimms, the best of British sandwiches, scones and afternoon tea sweet treats, (oh and more Pimms); a little bit of home from home!
We loved on arrival they gave us a little tube map and ‘oyster card’, and everything around the Brunch had a tube station sign. Quirky, and fun. We sat inside, which in hindsight, we would suggest sitting poolside for a little more atmosphere, but throughout the Brunch offering you will find different buffet style food stations to fill up your picnic basket (there is also a brilliant healthy offering of fresh fruit & veg which we appreciate isn’t the norm for Brunch, but we found it to be actually quite refreshing!), as well as a help yourself wine cellar (fabulous and dangerous all at the same time!). The Brunch then offers an additional menu for bigger classic Brit dishes such as fish and chips, and hearty roasts, that are served directly to the table. To finish you can find some old English favourite desserts such as sticky toffee pudding, crumble, and lemon drizzle cake. Yummy! If you are feeling homesick as a British expat, this is definitely one for you!
