The Royale with Cheese, available in sausage, salmon belly, or veggie options, is a brunch revelation that will make you question your life choices if you pass it up.

Fear not, non-porridge enthusiasts, as 26 Grains caters to all tastes. The flatbread with halloumi, pickles, garlic yoghurt, and golden beetroot is as pretty as the porridge bowls, and the roasted delica pumpkin, paired with lentils, goat’s curd, and scattered chillis, is a wholesome delight
