Breakfast: just for the rich?

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

In case you did not see the news today, according to a shock report in the Daily Telegraph, the cost of Breakfast is going up.  Business correspondent ‘Harry Wallop’ – no, really, that’ his name – tells us that “for a full English breakfast you now need a fuller wallet”.  Tea is up nearly 20%, bacon by almost 10% – and eggs, bread, orange juice and coffee are all up by at least 4%.  It doesn’t actually say, but presumably the numbers are compared to the same time last year.

In the light of such devastating economic implications, should we abandon Breakfast Wednesday until we’re all in management and can afford it once more?  Shall we pawn our bicycles to buy the bread?

Nah .. we’ll press on and take it on the chin, like the true Brits that we are.  Here’s to breakfast – whatever the cost!


yes, i know i was late

but i got there in the end (after a long trip from down south) so apologies if you’d given up and left already

so i had breakfast, and small and quick though it may have been, was also quite nice – but then you can’t really go wrong with coffee and toast, or at least if you can i don’t want to know about it

the next breakfast (october 11th) will be somewhere much more central, and so be awkward for everyone to get to – if you have any suggestions, post here (even if you have to sign up to do so – come on it’s dead easy)

anyway i’ll leave you with a picture of some coffee, for no other reason than i could really do with a cup myself, but don’t have time to make one right now o_O


Come and eat this September

at the N19 cafe on holloway road, just down from archway tube station – i have no idea if it’s any good or not, but it’s in the area everyone suggested last time so hopefully it will be alright

anyway, september’s breakfast will be on wednesday the 13th from 7.30 onwards (though i might not be there quite that early, given it’s a hell of a trek from blackheath)

joel is apparently organising something stateside, so i’ll leave him to provide info on that…
