The Times has listed the places chefs like to eat brunch and one Birmingham cafe has been recommended.

Introducing the list, The Times said: “No long and lazy weekend is complete without brunch. Everything about it is laid-back, from the loose timings (anything from early morning to mid-afternoon) to the eclectic menu.

“Sweet American-style pancakes? Yes please! Classic full English? Why not?! This selection of favourite brunch destinations from some of the UK’s leading chefs includes an Indian-influenced menu in Bath and an Australian-style one in Belfast.

“The settings may vary, from a beachfront café in Margate to a converted shipping container on a Bristol wharf, but what they all have in common is great food, relaxed dining and the perfect space in which to fortify yourself against the week ahead.”

Stu Deeley, chef-director of Smoke at Hampton Manor in Solihull, recommends CanEat as a top brunch spot and it’s where he enjoys food with his wife Tash and their two young children.

He added: “It’s child-friendly and with a garden for the drier months. My go-to dish is seven-minute eggs with gochujang mayo, sesame, coriander and toast.

“All the bread is baked in-house, and the cakes are outrageously good.”
