Brunch for Two at Aubaine, Selfridges London

There’s nothing better than brunch in London… When you wake up too late to call it breakfast but feel far too cool to label it lunch!

At the weekend we were in the mood for some serious brunch so we headed to Aubaine in the Oxford Street Selfridges.

Hidden on the 2nd floor behind the luxury shoe department (we nearly missed breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner!) is this pretty little restaurant.

From floor to ceiling the attention to detail is fantastic and the atmosphere is cool and relaxed.

We were greeted by a very friendly waiter who seated us in the prime spot, the French style terrace.

Complete with mirrored French doors and hundreds of draping purple wisteria, the decor and ambiance was absolutely stunning!

We were ravenous so ordered a mid-morning feast.

Giant croissants with butter and homemade jam, light and fluffy, some of the best we’ve had in a long time.

All washed down with coffee (for him), tea (for her) and fresh orange juice.

For a moment we lost ourselves and forgot we were in the big smoke, it felt as though we were down some Parisian back street, in a shabby little cafe overlooking the Eiffel Tower… ‘oui s’il vous plaît’.

Back to reality…

If you are ever in London and looking for a lovely setting for brunch, Aubaine is the place for you.

It’s also in prime location for a spot of shopping afterwards too (if you haven’t already been tempted by all the beautiful shoes on route).
