The Good

We were off to a brilliant start with the Breakfast Croissant Burger. Topped with two gorgeous sunny fried eggs that were just waiting to be poked, we just couldn’t wait to dig in. The croissant was fresh and flakey, it’s crisp outer made way for a fluffy and comforting inner. Within the open burger sandwiched slices of avocado, crispy bacon and of course we had to add an extra hash brown in there – as if this wasn’t breakfast-themed enough!

Our breakfast concluded on a sweet note with the special of the day, the Waffles. Freshly pressed in house, the waffles’ golden outer offered up a pleasant crunch that made way for a spongy and soft inner. They proved to be absolutely irresistible when soaking up the sweet berry compote as well as a caramel sauce. The cookie crumbs offered an additional crunch component, and a generous helping of vanilla ice cream tying together.
