So as we’re such a big fan of brunching, I mean who isn’t we’ve decided to start sharing out favourite brunch places in Cardiff and thought we’d start the series off with the Pieminister Bottomless Brunch.
We both fell in love with Pieminister when it was sat Glastonbury festival in 2014! Pie and Mash when you’ve been rained on and partied too hard was the start of a great relationship, so as soon as we saw they were offering Pieminister Bottomless Brunch we booked it in straight away. If you follow us on Social Media you’ll know we’ve made it our ‘thing’ to test out a different bottomless brunch a month. I mean is there really a better way to catch up.
We were both immediately drawn to the Pieminister Bottomless Brunch as not only did it has pies it also had Aperol Spritz on the menu for bottomless drinks and we’ve both jumped on that Aperol trend! You can see the Pieminister Bottomless brunch menu here.
When we arrived we couldn’t wait to get stuck in and ordered an Aperol Spritz straight away each. The first round took a while to come in all honesty but after the slow start it was made up for and as each drink was delivered we were asked if we wanted to order the next one. We had Aperol Spritz, mimosas and prosecco. They also have a Bloody Mary but it isn’t something either of us would choose!
The menu has four food options, 3 of which are vegetarian (it’s so nice to have more of an option when it comes to a menu then one!) it also has a vegan and gluten free option.
L went for Morning Glory which was a sausage and bacon pie with cheesy bechamel and a baked egg! I went for the Sunny Pie up which was a red onion and rosemary veggie sausage pie with bechamel and a baked egg. All the option come topped with garlic potatoes, crispy kale and vine tomatoes with a side of smoky baked beans! You can add sticks to the pie like on the regular menu and neither of us could resist adding a stick of halloumi!
After washing down the pies with a few Aperol Spritz, Prosecco and Mimosas we couldn’t resist ordering dessert, I mean is dessert ever a bad idea? We went for the vegan option of Salted caramel, pecan, treacle & sweet pie crumb and oh my it was delicious!
The Pieminister Bottomless Brunch is one of the most reasonable out there for only £20 and it didn’t disappoint, after a slow start we weren’t sure if we would be impressed but it was so good and really good value for money. It’s definitely one we’d go back for!
We’ll be sharing more of our favourite brunch spots soon, I’ve shared my thoughts on Grey’s at the Hilton Cardiff here and it’s still one of our top options and we’ll be sharing an updated review soon!
