Kitchen Garden Cafe | York Road

We can’t think of a better way to spend a lazy weekend in the Heath than by enjoying a leisurely brunch at one of the best places to breakfast in the UK! Yep, Kitchen Garden have officially be named one of the best breakfasts in the UK in the Guardian this week – and we agree!  Choose from the avocado brunch, kippers with toast and marmalade (trust us, it’s delicious!) and there’s even a vegan full English for all you folk who are giving Veganuary a go. The Guardian recommend the sweet waffles with maple syrup and bacon or fruit – and so do we (but it’s always with bacon for us!!) Read the full article here.
