A hearty breakfast always goes down a treat and for me: a cob stuffed full of bacon sausages and eggs is the perfect way to start the day. I decided to trade in my usual bowl of Shreddies and had a massive breakfast cob with plenty of change from a tenner.
I decided to visit Heidi’s Cafe, which can be found on Westdale Lane and is close to the shops in the centre of Gedling village.
It is clearly popular with tradespeople and locals who seemed like regulars.
There’s a good choice on the menu, with breakfast cobs, all-day breakfast, cold cobs, burgers, gammon, egg & chips and hot dogs among the choices.
I could feel hunger pangs as I looked up at the menu on a chalkboard so knew instantly what I was going to get. A breakfast cob.
The cob is priced at £6 and for under a tenner you get a large cob containing 2 Bacon, 2 sausage, egg, hashbrown, mushrooms, beans or tomatoes
Everything is spot on, from the eggs with their delicious runny yolks, meaty sausages and top-notch salty bacon. It was nice to tuck into a hash brown not swamped in grease and the mushrooms were perfect – not watery or slimy.
I was offered a choice of tomatoes or beans to go inside my cob and opted for beans. The quality of the bread ensured it wasn’t reduced to mush by the bean juice.
It’s pretty much faultless and the best breakfast cob I’ve had in an awfully long time both in terms of quality and price.
You can find Heidi’s at 43 Westdale Lane East Carlton, Nottingham, NG4 3JN
