EDITORS NOTE: Sadly, Matterhorn no longer deal in brunches.
For those who love Matterhorn, there's now a whole lot more to love. For those who’ve never been, this is the ideal way to whet your Matterhorn whistle.
Executive Chef and co-owner Sean Marshall is a bit of a brunch lad at heart, so after a'la'carte-ising the evening menu over the last year (he and Mark Keddell bought Matterhorn back in November 2014), was keen to re-introduce the brunches that were once part of Matterhorn’s repertoire.
You’ll see there’s a raw section, reflecting our desire to eat lighter, cleaner and greener (bet you’ve never eaten a smoothie from a bowl with a spoon before huh?), and a cooked section with corn fritter and eggs benny classics, as well as new delights like confit duck leg hash, or fennel and white onion tart with ox heart tomatoes and persian feta. Wiping drool as we speak.
The drinks similarly range from the raw and fruity, to the jump-starters (Flight coffee several ways, including with buffalo milk), and the get-my-Sunday-groove-on cocktails.
We visited on a lazy Sunday morning, with cruisy tunes setting the vibe, a gentle breeze blowing through the courtyard, and staff superb as always as we munched and slurped our way through a few dishes:
And then finished with a slice of delicious house-baked summer stone fruit frangipane tart. What more could a girl want? (Other than a personal masseuse called Sven...).
10am to 3pm, Saturdays and Sundays. And watch out for further ‘Seanising’ of the evening menu soon too.
