Bottomless Brunch @ Aubaine, Liverpool St

Baby sis was coming to visit and I was super excited as we haven’t spent any one on one time in agessss, so we had to do something fun. And boozy. Hmmm I wonder where this is leading.

So I did some bloggy research and after reading two pretty good reviews on Boozy Brunch and Island girls in the city, I decided on a bottomless brunch at Aubaine.

How had I never been to Broadgate Circle? It’s hidden behind Liverpool St station, a cute courtyard with loads of cool places- including a Franco Manca, who knew! This would be lush for outdoor drinking in the summer.

Aubaine has a shabby chic feel with low lighting and sweet décor. We sat in perfect proximity to the pastry table and bar.

We got in fairly late at 2pm, so the room was fairly quiet but still had a nice atmosphere. It seemed a little more tame than Jones & Sons and New St Grill brunches, which was nice as there was only the two of us, and we also had lots of chatting to do.

So the deal is one of the best I’ve seen, £15 unlimited brunch plates add £15 for unlimited prosecco– it was also nice to see white or red wine on there too. Obvs we went for bubbles.

The staff were quick off the mark, we had our first glass within minutes of sitting down. You can also graze on the fresh pastries and bread throughout. The carb fest began.

I had a fresh raisin swirly thing. Jess saved herself for the good stuff.

We both started with eggs beni, they said small plates and they meant it, as mush as I love quality, I need quantity- luckily this place has both. Soft poachies, thick cut ham and creamy holandaise, yum.

As soon as our forks were down we were asked what we’d like next and glasses were topped up. Happy days.

Mini English breakfast– amazing sausage and slow cooked mushy beanos.

Avocado on sour dough with perfect yolk porn (egg quota met for the entire week now) and toms. It could of done with a pinch of chilli flakes, but nice chuncky avo pieces and garnish made up for it.

Teeny tiny beef burger, which was tasty. I think if I had bought Mike along he’d of laughed and ordered 10. But for us girls it was nice to keep it light.

That all came in quick succession, so after about 45 mins we had a breather and got down to some serious drinking.

We finished on something sweet. I had the French toast drenched in syrup and cinnamon, wowzer it was good.

Jess got a cutsie pot of granola, yoghurt and fruit.

We had such a lovely afternoon at Aubaine. It was perfect for more of a quieter catch up in a chilled location. We got a cheeky top up after our 2 hour slot too. Food was decent quality (boss sausage & poachies) with fun friendly staff. The deal was excellent value. 

The fact there was only two of us meant the food kept coming pretty fast and the top ups aplenty. The mini plates were great, you could try each thing off the menu and not feel podged. This would be great if you were doing an all dayer, which we then did….

We skipped across to The Queen of Hoxton and carried on the party. A party on the rooftop. In a wigwam. So bloody cool.
