Brunch, one stop shop

THEME MEALS

Lazy Sunday morning give way to a day that requires all chores to be completed yet one yearns for a laidback brunch.

Imagine if your spa visit, shopping market and kid’s activity class come toge­t­h­er at your brunch venue to allow you to multi-task! This is possible with the new trend of theme brunches in the City.

Delhiites love their brunches and more so with the winter setting in. The restauranteurs are aware of the same and draft a menu as per the desires of gourmets. But with time, they have realised that providing only food options at the restaurant isn’t sufficient in a time when almost every other place is organising a brunch.

The theme thus becomes essential and varies from one restaurant to another. While the shopping and spa needs are kept in mind by Harem Meeza, engaging the kids becomes important for Life Caffé and Yum Yum Tree.


“We have a kids special buffet comprising mini pizzas and burgers with live pasta stations,” says Nawal Prakash, consultant of Life Caffé which has, “activities for kids such as caricature workshop and painting competition. There is also a chocolate tattoo expert placed at the venue who is becoming a hit among the tiny-tots.”

All this just to appease the kids? “Yes, ofcourse because it is an old rule that if the kids are happy then their parents will come along on their own,” he adds.

A similar approach is shared by Ravi Sethi from Yum Yum Tree who feels that it is important to engage the kids to enable parents to enjoy their brunch. “We have a dedicated area for kids where they can indulge in painting animals made of terracotta, mats, T-shirts and even caps. This encourages them to learn som­ething while their parents enjoy their brunch,” says Ravi.

But if shopping is on the to-do-list, then head to Harem Meeza for it has a souq and even spa set up within the restaurant premises! So pampering thyself with a manicure and purchasing a scarf while you enjoy a lazy brunch is not so difficult anymore. “The choice of a souq was made keeping in mind the Harem Meeza’s interior based on Middle-East.

Since souq is a middle-eastern concept, we thought it would gel well with the whole experience of a brunch. The spa was a must for brunches are associated with relaxation which can be provided by only pampering oneself,” says Sonia Mohindra from Harem Meeza.Now you know where to go for your next Sunday brunch!
