The holidays are over and a brand New Year lies ahead of us. Many of us made New Year Resolutions and these often include to spend more time with the people that we love. While weekdays are usually busy with work and school, weekends are ideal for reconnecting and spending quality time. If you love to enjoy a meal together but do not want the hassle of cooking and cleaning, consider a brunch outside your home.
Sunday Family Brunch at St. George Lycabettus Hotel
In Athens, we love having a Sunday Family Brunch at the St. George Lycabettus Hotel. The Sunday Family Brunch concept of this elegant Kolonaki Hotel has been successful for many years. What makes the event so unique is the relaxed and hospitable setting, the good choice of brunch dishes and the kind professional nannies offering original activities and quality crafts to the kids.
The Sunday Brunch Menu
I noticed that this year the buffet included healthier options alongside old favourites. There was a good selection of fresh salads, grazing platters with salmon, a variety of Greek and international cheeses, charcuterie and some antipasti.
The hot and cold buffet included perfectly pouched eggs, healthy wraps, bagels, savoury tarts and kids favourites such as juice mini burgers and pasta. The buffet menu is completed with a dazzling array of sweets, pancakes, croissants, home-made vegan banana bread and a chocolate fountain with fresh fruits. There is also a Yogurt Bar, where you can choose your yoghurt and mix with your favourite superfood.
On Sundays, kids are being entertained by Nannuka.com. Activities, games, gifts and many surprises await your little ones. So you can just relax and enjoy your brunch. There’s even a film screening at the Hotel’s Screening Room, every Sunday from 16:00 to 18:00. Popcorn included!
Our Family Experience
Our most recent Sunday Family Brunch visit was on a sunny December morning. Our large table in the La Suite Lounge (6th floor) by the window offered breathtaking views over Athens and even the sea and the islands nearby.
While kids helped themselves at the buffet, us adults had a relaxed coffee before starting to indulge in many classic brunch options. A nice touch was a healthy Energy Smoothie offered at the start of our brunch. We all loved talking to each other and having a quality meal together.
When the kids finished their meal they were off crafting and playing with the other children in the Kids Corner. Later in the afternoon, the kids watched a film in the movie theatre while we had more time to relax, talk and read a magazine. The service at La Suite Lounge was excellent and we found easy parking in the garage underneath the hotel. A Sunday Family Brunch at St. George Lycabettus Hotel is a great way to spend quality family time!
