You can get so much bang for your buck in this cheap UK city, including at French Village. This is one of Botanic Avenue’s best breakfast spots, a deli, bakery, wedding caterer and restaurant all in one. The breakfast and brunch menu runs until 2 pm and focuses on local, fresh produce served on funky china plates and set at rustic wooden tables. The theme is French-chic with a little Belfast charm thrown in.
The breakfast menu includes a full or mini breakfast with a side of fresh sourdough bread; fluffy pancakes filled with berries, syrup and jam, or a French Village hash, which includes sautéed potatoes, peppers, chorizo, onion and spinach topped with egg and bread. Don’t leave without a takeaway banoffee pie or mini cheesecake, which are the real shining stars of this cozy establishment.
