I Gigi is a general store selling a range of individual and beautiful pieces of furniture, clothes, gifts, and decoration pieces. This chic store also has a cafe on the first floor, serving freshly cooked breakfasts. The I Gigi cafe has a beautiful layout, as owners Alex and Zoe are experts in interior design. The cafe is small and intimate, with a clean, light design featuring white walls, wooden furniture and big windows. The breakfast menu is small, and best if you’re only looking for a small bite to eat. Organic ingredients are used, and you can choose from classic dippy eggs to an antioxidant-packed Acai smoothie. You’ll find a good choice of coffees and Teapig teas, or for a treat on a cold morning, try the Hot Choc-O Lait: a block of Belgian dark or milk chocolate on a stick, served with milk and whipped cream.
Treacle and Co is a small, cosy cake shop on Church Road. You’ll see a stunning range of cakes on display, but Treacle and Co actually serve great brunch too. You’ll only be able to have brunch here on Sunday, but it’ll be worth the wait when you see what’s on offer. The brunch menu gives a great mix of savoury and sweet dishes, and you can order something smaller, or a full English breakfast, depending on your appetite. Try the full breakfast which comes with crispy bacon, sausages, black pudding, eggs, roasted cherry tomatoes and hot, buttered toast. Or if you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, go for the vanilla pancake stack with a choice of different toppings. Treacle and Co is the perfect setting for a cosy yet stylish Sunday brunch.
