The Best Breakfast in Birmingham at Browns Brasserie & Bar.

Our trip to Birmingham ended on a fantastic high as we attended Browns Brasserie & Bar for a delightful breakfast. They are located on the outside of the Bullring, opposite gorgeous views of St Martin's Church and Selfridges. The building is gorgeous, even from the outside it's hard not to be tempted in, and once inside it's like a little world of foodie heaven. 

We were greeted by delightful staff and we were lucky enough to meet manager Ranjit, a passionate and welcoming man leading an equally happy and enthusiastic team. We were shown to a lovely table near the window, and even though we'd brought the rain from Wales with us, we still had a beautiful view and relaxing vibe.

The restaurant is very spacious, with lots of quirky areas, such as the photo framed wall leading upstairs and the balcony; perfect for enjoying long summer evenings with delicious food and drink. 

Victoria, one of the very lovely waitresses, offered us tea and coffee and noted our order; Warren opted for a Traditional Breakfast and I couldn't wait to try their Eggs Benedict.

Our food arrived and it looked (almost) too good to eat. Warren's breakfast looked so tasty, and I felt truly spoiled with my breakfast; it was picture perfect. 

We tucked in and, for once, we were pretty lost for words. The food was not only presented in a beautiful manner, but it was all cooked to perfection. The portions were spot on, and we couldn't help but notice how high quality the ingredients were. The sausages were the best Warren has ever eaten (and that means a lot, he's a sausage expert!) and the combination of food on my plate was esquisite.

All the items on the menu are extremely well priced, with Warren's breakfast priced at £7.50 which included sausages, bacon, toast, beans, eggs (cooked to your own preference), and a half grilled tomato (it also includes mushrooms and black pudding but Warren chose to not have these items). The Eggs Benedict is priced at £7.95 and each element was perfectly put together, and each mouthful was a total taste delight!  

Their loose leafed tea is priced at£2.50, and I managed to squeeze four cups of tea out of the pot! Warren's coffee was £2.50 and it arrived with frothy hot milk, a perfect addition if you wish to add it to your drink. This means breakfast would have cost just over £20 for two of us, such a great price for a such an enjoyable experience.
We think Browns Brasserie & Bar is a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful part of Birmingham; the views are stunning and the access to the city, shops and night-life is perfect. As for the staff, well they made us feel so unbelievably welcome and at home, it was hard to leave! They're a very special bunch and I can't wait to go back and sample their afternoon tea (£13.50 per person) which looks delicious and perfect for visitors of Birmigham to enjoy after a long day shopping in the vibrant city.
I can't recommend Browns highly enough; it has all the charm and delight a restaurant should have, and it's easy to see how it transforms from a relaxing breakfast venue to a vibrant restaurant for evening dining and meeting friends. 

We had the perfect start to our day and it felt incredibly special to discover such a little gem in the heart of the city. We can't wait to go back!
