To celebrate Christmas, a lovely little blogger Secret Santa and the end of my work with Bella Italia we decided to go for breakfast and try another menu from my Italian faves where they serve breakfast until 12 and it’s seriously good value. Breakfast is one of my favourite meals to eat out and I love tucking into a big plate before heading off for a day of shopping or a nice long walk. I’m equally obsessed with sweet and savoury breakfasts but decided to go full on savoury on this little trip out. It’s only £5 for all of the breakfast items, including a cooked breakfast/ Full English, pancakes, frittata or anything else. I opted for the Gigante Breakfast and it was insanely good value. We’re talking 3 rashers of bacon, 2 Cumberland pork sausages, tomato, baked beans, crispy potatoes, chestnut mushrooms and 2 fried, scrambled or poached eggs. Served with toasted ciabatta and butter which was delicious.
The Fruity Pancake Stack looked absolutely awesome – 3 buttermilk pancakes topped with sliced bananas, strawberries and creamy mascarpone. Served with syrup – of course. Next on the blogger brunch list was the Veggie Frittata, again for a fiver, eggs, spinach, mushrooms, new potatoes, red peppers and onions. This looked awesome too!
After our fun Secret Santa swap where everyone did seriously well and all bought awesome gifts we tucked into our breakfast with some OJ and tea and had a good ol’ blogger chat. It’s so nice to have friends in the same industry that you can chat to about things that perhaps older friends won’t ‘get’. Do any other bloggers feel like this too?
That’s the end of my Bella Italia content for the time being guys, I’ve loved trialling almost all of the menu and becoming buds with the lovely staff and managers there. You can check out my previous posts about Bella Italia if you’d like. Here’s my first post with some initial reactions, my second that ties in the importance of female friendships chat and my third which is all about the festive treats available at Bella Italia. Thanks for reading!
