We all know that Mother’s Day is a time to spoil the most important person in your life, your mum, but when the treat you have planned turns into something special for the whole family, you know you’re onto a winner!
Typically after a week of sunny, mild weather, Mother’s Day was a dull and wet affair, but that didn’t dampen the celebrations as tucked away in leafy Cobham, Surrey, Fego was a hive of Mother’s Day activity.
Awarded a place in The Times ‘25 Best Places for Brunch’ 2014, Fego’s is proud of its love affair with food and its extensive brunch menu is something to behold. From gourmet Brunch Burritos to Spicy Scrambled Eggs to Boston Triple Beans on Toast or Buck and Bunny (classic rarebit with grilled thick-cut bacon and fluffy poached eggs), and not forgetting the sweet toothed amongst us who would happily devour an ‘All American Pancake Stack’, the menu alone is a joy to read!
With the option to add a Bloody Mary or glass of Bucks Fizz with any brunch order you can certainly go to town, but for those who want to opt for a healthy alternative there’s an array of fruit based delights such as Greek and Granola Sundae Berry or Berry Chilly to choose from.
Fego’s also caters fantastically for coeliacs with a full and diverse gluten-free menu that includes many of the delicious dishes from the main menu.
This was our first time at Fego’s, but it was nothing short of a delight. Not only was the food scrumptious, the staff were friendly and attentive, the prices were reasonable and as it was a special occasion, the simple gesture of giving every mum a homemade fairy cake to take home was the cherry on the top!
We may have only just begun to explore the brunch menu, but we will most certainly be coming back. Although trying to decide between one of the gorgeous homemade afternoon sweet treats or a full blown evening meal will be no easy feat – we may just have to do both!
