What’s nicer than a pancake date?! The newly reopened NQ brunch favourite you NEED to try. Their full menu is seriously impressive, but the pancake stacks have my heart (Biscoff, funfetti, bacon & syrup) head down for a dreamy little brunch session and enjoy a selection of seriously good cocktails including Bloody Mary’s and Mimosa’s. There’s plenty of classic breakfast items too, and even club sandwiches!
