Feast your eyes on a delicious stack of churros, a shiny layer of yummy chocolate painted on the bow of one as they sail on top of a deep chocolate sea. This photo portrays the Cuatro Torres of Madrid as well as La Puerta del Sol, some of the most iconic landmarks in the Spanish capital. Take in sights of Parisian architecture. The Eiffel Tower standing proudly on top of a delicious croissant next to the Notre Dame Cathedral, with a smidgen of glossy butter on the side. Or have a closer look at the London skyline, featuring Big Ben, the London Eye and London Bridge that stand together atop a swirl of pink icing and a scrumptious, mouth-watering fairy cake. These are some instances of the fascinating photography work showcased by Brunchcity.

The illustrator and photographer duo Bea Crespo and Andrea G. Portoles amalgamate all their favourite things, creatively exploring various designs, patterns and foods. Focusing on popular global brunch dishes and examining the most-eaten foods, the pair also craft archetypal metropolises out of paper, juxtaposing the two in a vibrant image that captures the essence of the very cities that they represent. The work is clever, fun and creative, and features the best of design and food.

The most iconic foods and cities are brought together in a perfect scene, truly remarkable in its concept and execution.
