Everyone has dreams, and although it may seem a little silly, one of mine was to be able to wake up in the morning and stroll down to a cafe for breakfast. Might not seem like much of a dream, but so far I’ve never lived near anywhere with a nice enough cafe. So, no pressure on The Chorlton Eatery then! Everytime we walked past it looked quite busy, so we had high hopes that this might be the place for the perfect English Breakfast. It scored very well with me indeed.
The breakfast usually comes with black pudding and mushrooms, but the waitress said I could swap them for other things, so I got extra sausage and bacon. It might not look fancy, but there is a fine art to a fry up, and this ticks a lot of the boxes. The sausages were flavourful and nothing was too greasy. The toast and butter was delicious. It looks like they cheated a bit with the egg, but it was runny, so job well done there. I’m definitely of the opinion that beans should be kept separate if possible, so I liked that too. My other half tried the Mediterranean Breakfast, which consisted of Turkish Sausages, scrambled eggs, feta, olives and halloumi. There was also half a small baguette and jam.
I didn’t get a look in at any of this, but apparently it was all excellent. It wasn’t exactly cheap at £14.00 for two of us, but because I enjoyed it so much, I think it was good value for money. I’ve seen some other places serving breakfast round Beech Road etc, and I’m sure I will get round to trying them, but when it comes to a simple breakfast I think this place has got it right. Next time I have a hangover that needs a good kicking, I know where I will be heading to!
