St Andrews Eats; Pancakes at The Vic

Guess who's back with another brunch related post?! Really not that hard to work out it's me considering it seems to be all I'm blogging about these days with my post on brunch at Bread Street Kitchen and the ultimate brunch date in Copenahagen at Mad & Kaffe but I love it and let's be honest, who doesn't love it!

The Vic is one of Saint Andrews's staples. With pretty much the only dance floor in town and an absolute classic of a pub quiz on a Sunday night, I have to say I am a big fan. They recently launched a new menu though so I thought I would pop along and see what their brunch offerings were like and I brought my friend from Germany Danielle along for a second opinion.

The Vic has recently been refurbished inside with the help of "Mr. Doodle" who has created the most incredible mural to Saint Andrews on the walls. Covering the stairwell interior with doodles featuring the most iconic landmarks in the town really helps create a fun vibe and definitely a unique atmosphere.

The brunch menu isn't exactly vast, there are the staple full Scottish and its veggie counterpart, but apart from that there are just a couple twists on some classics and I definitely think an avo toast with feta wouldn't go amiss. However there were three delightful pancake options; blueberry jam and coconut yoghurt, bacon and maple syrup and nutella and toasted almonds. Both Danielle and I decided we were going all out and got the bacon and maple syrup pancakes and they were yuuuuummy. Despite not looking like the biggest portion, the bacon was piled high and we were both very much content till dinner time!

Sadly the day we were there the Vic seemed to be having a bit of an off morning as our pancakes took around an hour to come, but the staff were so apologetic and gave us free tea and coffee so it really wasn't too much of a bother. We were just there to have a catchup but if I was in more of a hurry I would have definitely been a little more agitated. As I go there quite often I can honestly say I haven't had that problem before so it definitely seems like more of a one off experience.

Whilst there are perhaps places in St. Andrews that truly gear themselves towards brunch, the Vic is definitely an option not to be forgotten if you are looking for a really chilled atmosphere and some funky interiors.
