A weekend breakfast picnic is the perfect way to start your weekend.

Bypass the ridiculous lines at the latest breakfast hotspot and experience a change of pace with a relaxing picnic surrounded by nature.

With autumn officially here, it is our last chance to get out before the mornings turn too chilly. The grass is green and the temperate is perfect, not too hot, not too cold.

What you’ll need?

  • A picnic rug
  • An extra blanket incase it gets chilly
  • Pillows
  • A mini speaker to play your favourite tunes
  • Food – Because you can’t have a picnic without it
  • Company (optional but recommended)

What to eat?

  • Muffins- We have included our favourite recipe below! Muffins are easy to transport and with temperates a little brisk in the morning, a warm muffin will provide the ultimate comfort.
  • Croissants- The ultimate crowd please- Make sure you don’t forget the strawberry jam!
  • Fruit- It makes you feel better after you’ve eaten 3 croissants.
  • Warm drinks – We recommend freshly brewed coffee, hot chocolate or tea.
