Who doesn’t need a new brunch spot in their life?
More importantly, who doesn’t need a new brunch spot that includes hilarious puns in their menu?
I had frequented West Didsbury’s Thyme Out Co a couple of times just to be certain it was good enough to recommend for you guys (it’s a tough job, but I do it for you). And I am happy to report that this place should jump-frog right to the top of your weekend brekkie list.
But enough (sc)ramble; let’s get into the good stuff.
Sunday mornings for me comprise the 3 B’s (no)Bra, (no)Brush and BRUNCH.
Simply, I don’t feel like anyone should have to adhere to normal social regulations on a Sunday; whether you be a chap or a lady – I encourage you to embrace your bed head in favour of enjoying your first meal of the day in true comfort.
Rolling out of bed, I shrugged into the closest clothes I could find; grabbed a pair of sunglasses to hide half of my face and excitedly called on for my best friend like a giddy (but sleepy) six-year-old.
Setting off in search of sustenance; we arrived outside Thyme Out at approximately 9:45am post-power walk, feeling energised (somewhat) and ready for a feed.
We opted to sit outside to enjoy the fleeting bout of sunshine, ordering up a bountiful, vegetarian feast to satisfy our growling appetites.
Woah there meat-eaters! I know, I almost lost you there; but stick with me, I promise you it’s worth it.
Whist Thyme Out Co serve up some bangin’ bangers; their vegetarian options are not to be missed.
First up, take their Veggie Burrito.
I did some customisation with this one, and the final result was not juan to be missed.
Halloumi, avo, scrambled egg, tomatoes, spinach and mushrooms.
Totally chomp-able and perfect if you’re looking for something to sink your teeth into.
Next, their ‘Come’n Avo Go If You Think You’re Hard Enough’; worth ordering just to say it out loud.
It’s avocado toast to you and me, but a trendy avocado toast nonetheless.
Smashed avo with feta piled lavishly onto crunchy (almost brittle) sourdough toast and topped with sun blushed tomatos, coriander, chilli, garlic and lime.
Achingly fresh-tasting and you can even add a scattering of cripsy parma ham if you really fancy.
The ‘Veg Out’ was a generous spread of halloumi (serious door-wedge chunks), veggie pudding, poached egg, perfectly poppable vine tomatoes, portobello mushroom, avocado, beans and sourdough toast – phew!
Last but certainly not least, the Banana Split Pancakes; a devilishly naughty afters that you can still totally count as breakfast.
The fluffiest of pancakes, dressed with panfried banana, blueberry, candied pecans, maple syrup, vanilla & hobnob cheesecake hollandaise.
Sounds flilthy, no?
It tastes even better.
Thankfully, brunch needs no excuse – so be sure to get yourself down there pronto to sample all they have to offer. The place gets busy fast, and bookings are a no-no, so try and get there before 10am if you don’t want your eggs with a side of a 40 minute wait.
and Avo’ good time y’hear!
