Breakfast in Cambridge review

Breakfast in Cambridge – Are you in a rush, away from home, don’t fancy breakfast on your own or are you looking for a special treat? You might know the obvious places to get your early morning fix in Cambridge, but what about the less obvious ones? Breakfast has become quite trendy these days. The most fashionable name for breakfast these days is Brunch. Although some of the food might be Brunch components, Brunch is a meal on its own and is served from 11 am to 3 pm. Brunch is an offering of both breakfast and lunch dishes, which most of the time is served in a buffet style. You can look forward to typical lunchtime food such as soups, quiches, salads and hot and cold meats and breakfast food such as eggs, bacon, sausages, muffins, pancakes and coffee and is often served with sparkling wine or cocktails. It’s a great way of entertaining and the options are endless.

Breakfast in Cambridge

Did you know, that the English invented Brunch and that it took the American’s a long time to take it on too? The meal was inspired by hangovers and the clever idea of Guy Beringer to get his fellow drinkers out of bed.  It was a bit of a surprise to me, that this great meal wasn’t invented on the continent as it’s very popular here.

My inspiration to give you the low down on one of my favourite meals of the day, started when I was out and about with clients resisting the tasty smells of bacon baps and innovative brunch dishes at Hot Numbers inviting Eggs Benedict at Fitzbillies and stories about the best Turkish breakfast in town.  I do hope to find an Asian breakfast too as there is nothing better than a steaming bowl of Thai soup and exotic fruit to start the day, even if you’re not in paradise.

You can expect short reviews as I would hate you to trawl through pages of text. Instead, it’s better to tuck in.
