A hearty breakfast always goes down a treat for me, so after being good all week, I decided to forgo my usual bowl of Weetabix and have a full English with change from a tenner.
I decided to pop into Corner Cafe, which can be found on Victoria Road in the centre of Netherfield.
Its traditional look and feel inside reminded me of those wonderful days as a teenager hiding away from cold with a mug of tea and sausage cob before starting work on the markets with my Dad. I miss these kinds of places: they make a welcome change from the corporate cafes that now fill our high streets so it’s good to know some of them are still thriving despite a lot of competition.
There is a lot of choice on the breakfast menu, with breakfast cobs, traditional breakfasts to satisfy all appetites and a nice vegetarian selection too.
The hunger pangs quickly kicked in as the smell of bacon penetrated my nostrils, so I opted for a ‘Breakfast 2’ from the menu.
This selection is priced at £6 and for under a tenner you get a sausage, two eggs, two bacon, a large amount of beans and chips – although I was given the option to replace these with hash browns, which I did. A slice of toast was also included.
Everything was spot on, from the eggs with their delicious runny yolks, a meaty sausage and quality bacon. It was nice to tuck into a hash brown not saturated in grease and the beans were perfect – good quality and not full of sugar like the cheaper brands. Hats off to the chef, who cooked this breakfast perfectly.
For six quid I must be honest, I wasn’t expecting much on the plate, but I can honestly say I was nicely full after finishing and then washing down the food with a lovely, warm latte.
This breakfast was pretty much faultless and one of the best I’ve had in an awfully long time for that price.
Worth a visit.
