A couple of weekends ago Adam and I went for lovely walk in Arundel and it was the perfect opportunity to pop into one of my favourite brunch spots. The Loft is situated right at the top of a shop called Sparks Yard which sells all sorts of quirky homeware and hosts a menu of breakfast, brunch and lunch items from pancakes to burgers.
But first things first. What I really love about The Loft is the atmosphere. It always has a bit of a buzz about it, with customers and staff that are super friendly. On top of that I love the complete mix of people and generations you get in there as we were surrounded by a complete mixture from families with young children, to couples like us. I began my brunch with what any good brunch starts with, a vanilla milkshake.
Next up it was pancakes. I’m still yet to try anything on their lunch menu as every time we go there I get suckered in my these bad boys. Stacked 5 high with a healthy drowning in maple syrup and you’re good to go. The pancakes here are always so fluffy, I just can’t resist them.
For Adam, it had to be The Works: Smoked back bacon, sausage, local free range eggs, vine cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, homemade rosti style hash brown & homemade baked beans. This is a definite quality over quantity number when compared to other cooked breakfasts but this only works to its advantage. The homemade baked beans are a particularly nice touch with a really fresh tomato taste.
We polished it all off rather quickly and debated staying for cake for a bit but regrettably resisted! If you’re ever visiting Arundel (which I’d highly recommend anyway) this is definitely the perfect spot for a casual bite to eat.
I’ve already started scheduling in more ‘walks’ around Arundel just so I can come here more. I also saw on their website that they do also do Private Hire and I can imagine this being such a fun place for a birthday party!
Next time I go I’m going to try and venture onto the ‘Lunchy’ part of the menu and try the Veggie Bhaji Burger because I saw the table next to us with it and it looks AMAZING.
Until next time!
