Eat – The Kitchen at Dunlavy
For a gourmet brunch experience in a gorgeous atmosphere, head over to The Dunlavy. Situated in lush trees with floor to ceiling windows and dozens of crystal chandeliers, the dining space makes for a perfect mid-morning hangout. You cannot go wrong ordering the Avocado Toast or the Chinese Chicken Salad. If you’re in the mood for a delicious smoothie, we recommend the Banana & Jam.

Indulge – Sweet Paris
With crepes to die for and the cutest decor, we just had to do a visit to Sweet Paris. The menu is extensive and any crepe you can dream up, Sweet Paris can offer. Nutella, caramel, strawberries and bananas – our mouths are watering just at the thought. Are crepes not your thing? No problem because waffles, milkshakes and Nutella hot chocolate are also up for order.
