The Pudding Pantry, Nottingham
Three food-loving friends created this outstanding Nottingham institution specialising in sweet treats (don’t miss their fluffy pancakes with homemade salted caramel) but never at the expense of some very fine savoury fare.
Weekday breakfasts are a joy, but weekend brunches are the stuff of dreams, with handmade sausage rolls, garlicky mushrooms in the full English, and bruschetta with beautiful mixed toppings.
Courgette & sweetcorn fritters, avocado, coriander, salsa, sour cream, £6.50.
