So, as was entirely predictable, the rain was the sixth guest at Breakfast Wednesday on our first attempt at a summer style outdoors breakfast. Fortunately the Park Cafe are prepared for such eventualities (well, it would be quite poor business planning if they were not … ) so we sheltered under their canopy and had a thoroughly decent breakfast.
Our Breakfast Wednesday sign was admired at length by the staff, earning them instant points in our write-up. Not that they really need it, as the food is of top quality and the service cheerful .. and at only a fiver for a full english including your tea or coffee, the price is perfectly reasonable.
I should also note that they appear to be doing a roaring trade from all the smokers who are now no longer able to have a breakfast and a smoke anywhere else due to the new smoking rules. Since the Park Cafe is completely outdoors, it holds instant attractions for the nicotine addicts among you.
If Full English brekkie’s not your thing, there’s plenty of other options – as you can see from the alluringly stuffed serving hatch below. There’s also paninnis and other such healthy fare should you so wish. I would happily recommend this to anyone – even if it’s raining!
