I noticed this place on a recent trip to Halesowen to meet a friend. Not wanting to miss out, the following day, 4 of us went to see how good the breakfasts are. Firstly, its not trying to be anything but a greasy spoon. Its the first place that I […]
A mediocre breakfast. 2 greasy sausages, 2 slightly undercooked bacon, beans, mushrooms, a fried egg, toast and a hash brown. There are plastic sheets covering doilly type table cloths. I didn’t feel particularly clean.
A hearty breakfast, great value, (the photo doesn’t do it justice). 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 eggs, (OK one of them was broken), loads of sautéed potatoes, beans and toast. A big portion. We all paid the extra £1.00 for our coffee too. Its literally a stones throw from New […]
I was going to order a Full English, from this old school Greasy Spoon – but it was filthy – so I went with a bacon sandwich. I ate it very quickly then went outside. When I got home, (I was on my bike), I still smelled of grease and […]
Another classic greasy spoon. The place was busy – lots of builders and construction types in their high vis jackets. Cheap ingredients, cooked perfectly well. A decent breakfast of 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 hash browns, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, egg and a couple of rounds of toast.
Classic Greasy spoon. Great breakfast, lovely staff. Cheap ingredients – but you know what you are getting. Its the sort of place that they ask you how much sugar you want in your coffee and put it in for you. Don’t let that put you off, its wonderful! BBC […]
The cafe/Deli/sandwich shop is near the clock in the jewellery quarter of Birmingham. Its an OK breakfast. The portion size was good, but they served the broken egg – which to me is a no-no. The ingredients were cheap, the setting wasnt lit well enough and service took quite a […]
Another classic greasy spoon. Cheap ingredients, cooked perfectly well. A large breakfast of 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 hash browns, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, egg, fried bread and a couple of rounds of toast. That lot, including coffee/tea cost just £4.95! If you like a ‘dirty’ fry up, if you […]
Situated near the ‘Floozy in the Jacuzzi’, it’s a greasy spoon. Cheap breakfasts done well. My friend and I both ordered the same breakfasts – but they were both different?! I got: 2 sausage, 2 bacon, fried egg, 2 toast, mushrooms, black pudding, beans and tomatoes. Seriously good value for […]
Good value breakfasts, spotlessly clean. An immaculately clean cafe, with mod like artwork. The place was staffed by a couple of young ladies that being honest, didn’t seem to want to be there, though they were efficient. They do an array of breakfasts, based on English historical figures, (Nelson, Churchill, […]
