Brunch is the ideal setting for commiserating with friends about how you just can’t party like you used to. By the time you’ve had your hair of the dog and soothed yourself with more bakes or bacon than one should ever rightly indulge in, you’ll be restored and ready to turn a Sunday write-off into a Sunday take-off. Who knows where the day might take you’
The Pink Plantation House
This is where to go for a proper Creole experience. There are standards like pancakes and the ubiquitous English breakfast, but what really sells the Pink House, apart from its gorgeous views and garden, is the Creole breakfast. Nowhere this side of Assou Square can you get such fantastic light floats, served with garlic butter. Have with saltfish or herring and cucumber, or substitute a satisfying serving of breadfruit, and you are good to go. Going Creole doesn’t mean giving up the finer things at all, so pair with a passion fruit or gooseberry mimosa and Start your Sunday with a fizz.
Live music, bay views and culinary delights. What’s not to love about brunch at The Landings’ Yacht Haven Restaurant’ This is where the uber-chic go to linger over breakfast. Elegant loungewear is a must, so pull out that broad-brimmed hat and your Chanel sunglasses. Enjoy an extensive buffet with ribs, steak, shrimp, and local offerings of pepperpot and accra. Live action stations for omelette, stir fry or pasta mean that you get it your way, every time.
The family-oriented brunch buffet is a Sunday lunch really, though there is the concession to breakfast with eggs, sausages and bacon. But you won’t want eggs and bacon when you can have roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, scalloped potatoes and sautéed vegetables. Live music, an al fresco deck right on the beach and flowing mimosas and life is good.
Chef Bobo’s morning choices are served on a marina-front deck in the heart of Rodney Bay. In theory, you could make a day break in Saint Lucia’s party district after shaking a leg or hogging the mic at karaoke. Then take an early-morning dip at Reduit Beach and hit The Edge for some sustenance. Choose from one of the breakfast platters, including the Saint Lucian breakfast: saltfish, bakes, local jam, cucumber salad, coconut water or juice and fresh fruit, or order a la carte to design your own omelette or filling breakfast smoothie.
