The Best Places to Eat Brunch In Worcester

As a student, living on a budget, something that is widely considered non-essential is treating yourself to brunch. Something I wasn’t too pleased about when beginning my student lifestyle. Why, just because our money is tight, should we give up what I’d argue is the most important meal of the day?

After three years of living and studying in Worcester, I have found a way to incorporate brunch into an unreasonably tight and unwavering budget. Below are just a few of my favourite spots to enjoy without breaking the bank.

Black and Whit3

In the three years I have studied at Worcester, Black and Whit3 has quickly become one of my favourite places to enjoy brunch. I have eaten the majority of the dishes on the menu and am yet to find something I haven’t enjoyed.

With Poached Egg on Toast, at just £5.89, stacks of pancakes for £6 and a Bacon Sandwich for £3.50 brunch has never been so reasonable or so delicious.

Since the Covid lockdown, Black and Whit3 has been refurbished and boasts more seating and beautiful décor that matches the quality of the food. If you haven’t been already, it is must-visit brunch spot with the loveliest staff and the tastiest coffee.

Coffee Warehouse

I stumbled into Coffee Warehouse, slightly hungover, following my first Halloween as a student and was craving a full English and a bucket of black coffee.

Coffee Warehouse did not disappoint.

You can buy their super six breakfast, with everything you need to sort out the excess vodka for just £4.99 or, treat yourself and get the full English for an extra three pounds. Alternatively, get the student staple of beans on toast for just £3.99.

Be The Change

Boasting a breakfast burrito for £5.50, a monster breakfast bap (roll)  for £6.50 and shakshuka for £7, Be The Change Foods is one of my favourite spots to drop into as a student living in Worcester. The entirely vegan menu is delicious and affordable with coffees available in an endless array of alternative mylks.

My personal favourite thing to eat here are the brownies. I know its not strictly brunch food but, you can still have dessert after brunch. Right? The brownies come in so many flavours my favourites being Oreo or Biscoff, and you even have the delights of blondies and the Worcester famous brookies.

While studying or living in Worcester, this café is a must.

Steam

If you fancy a sweeter brunch, Steam Coffee Shop has you covered. They are now making homemade Nutella croissants, so grab them while they are hot!

Alternatively, enjoy their all-day breakfast selection, the majority of which will set you back less than a fiver. The bacon baps are a particular favourite washed down with a perfect cappuccino, what more could you ask for?

Fred’s of Worcester

Fred’s of Worcester is another great place to enjoy a reasonably priced and extremely tasty brunch. The pancakes start at just £4, as does the eggs on sourdough toast.

If you are feeling particularly extravagant, your deadlines are getting a little too much or you are enjoying brunch for a special occasion, Fred’s offers bottomless brunch. The ultimate way to enjoy my favourite meal! Order anything you fancy as a main course, add a pastry, a coffee and then bottomless, all you can drink, fizz. The perfect way to enjoy your weekend.
