The Herald on Sunday - - THE COOL LIST BRUNCH SPOTS -

to in­ter­rupt a jour­ney through the moun­tains, or as a re­viv­ing feast the day after some se­ri­ous hill-walk­ing. Mhor 84, one of the sis­ter venues to fine-din­ing star Monachyle Mhor, is there for those mo­ments. It’s a mo­tel, res­tau­rant, bar and cafe and its break­fasts, served from 8am un­til 11.30am, are be­yond mor­eish – though it’s hard to imag­ine any­one would be want­ing more after they’ve eaten a “big break­fast”.

YOU could call this a brunch, but it’s more of a bran­quet, in­clud­ing ev­ery­thing from a carvery to an ex­tra­or­di­nary patis­serie se­lec­tion. The word bran­quet isn’t in com­mon use just yet, but it should be, to al­low a dis­tinc­tion to be made be­tween a reg­u­lar brunch and the feast on of­fer here. The ho­tel ran its In­ter­na­tional Brunches over the sum­mer, which proved so pop­u­lar they were ex­tended to Christ­mas. All of this in the glam­our of the ho­tel’s atrium un­der the glow of the Ge­orge Singer light­ing in­stal­la­tion. Priced at £32.50 per adult and £16 per child, from 1pm to 4pm. res­tau­rant still works on the same prin­ci­ple – home­less peo­ple train and work there and cus­tomers are en­cour­aged to “pay for­ward” meals for the home­less. It’s a qual­ity brunch too, of­fer­ing but­ter­milk pan­cakes, av­o­cado on toast with salsa and wa­ter­cress, or baked eggs with ched­dar, spinach, toma­toes and black beans, as well as some fizz on the side.
