The all-new Sports Café menu for 2017 arrives on Friday 27th January, but here at Under the Treetops, we’ll be bringing you a smattering of inside scoops between now and then.
Today, we’re talking breakfast – the most important meal of the day, and brunch – our favourite meal of the day (not to mention the chicest way to style out a ‘second breakfast’).
If you’re headed straight to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise in the morning, you’re probably after something light that won’t hold you back as you zip down the Rapids.
How about a fresh fruit platter, a layered yoghurt and granola parfait, or one of our freshly made smoothies? Green Kick is loaded with the good stuff to keep your energy levels tip top until lunch – kale, kiwi, cucumber, spinach and apple.
But then there are the days when only a cooked breakfast will do. And don’t fear – we’ve still got your favourite Full English (and a vegetarian option, of course) as well as all the side orders to really make it your own (the day we don’t order an extra hash brown is how you know that’s really our evil twin).
For those with a big appetite and no immediate plans, there’s the famous Sports Café Champion’s Breakfast: two sausages, two slices of grilled back bacon, two free range eggs (fried or scrambled), grilled tomato, mushroom, baked beans, two hash browns, toast and orange juice. Phew.
And then there’s brunch, the most stylish meal of the day. The perfect excuse to eat fancy breakfast food and drink champagne (how about a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut from the new drinks menu?). All the brunch dishes are served until 4pm, so you can take it as slow as you like.
On our brunch menu you’ll find perfectly scrambled free range eggs, ham hock hash, smoked salmon and the always-Instagrammable sliced avocado on toast with pepper relish.
Keep checking back over the next few weeks, as we bring you exclusive news about the new craft beer selection, artisanal teas and – finally – the big reveal itself.
