“This humble bakery is home to some of the best bread in the city, baked fresh every day next to the cafe, which makes the best bed for its Mexican-style huevos rancheros."

She said: “'I'm a bit astonished that we made the list, especially when you look at the kind of restaurants listed. It's great to know that casual brunch and real bread and pastry are valued so highly.”

The Eat List has been compiled by Time Out editors and contributing writers who have travelled the country to dine their way through hundreds of restaurants.

James Manning, Global Projects Editor at Time Out, said: “The Time Out Eet List reflects the way people across the UK, and the world, love to eat right now.

“We prize the places that combine great cooking with atmosphere and service, with an unashamed bias towards great-value restaurants you’ll want to visit again and again.

“There has never been a better time to dine out in the UK, and this is your essential guide to the best spots for every occasion.

“At Time Out, we’ve eaten our way through countless restaurants for more than 50 years on our quest to discover the best of the city.

“Time Out’s recommendations are made by expert, independent local writers and our reviewers visit anonymously and pay their way.

“It's a given that for a venue to make one of Time Out’s recommended lists the food has to be amazing, but we're looking for a whole eating experience that’s truly memorable."
