But is the breakfast at Morrisons cafe in Hartcliffe worth it?

Typically, the range of a breakfast you can expect at a supermarket cafe is small. It’s not going to be incredible (no plump juicy sausages or thickly-cut bacon here), and there’s generally an guarantee it won’t terrible.

But what it won’t do is cost alot. And at Morrisons in Hartcliffe, the breakfast priced at £4.49 might be one the cheapest in the city. With a pot of tea, the total comes to £5.78. It certainly feels like a deal as I paid up up before walking over to an empty table with numbered order in hand.

It’s a Wednesday morning, just before 9am, and the place is pretty dead. I count just three other lone customers, all eating through their breakfasts to the sound of scanners beeping from the tills nearby.

The food comes out pretty quickly. I went for a small breakfast, and so it’s one of everything. A fried egg, a slice of toast, a sausage, a bacon rasher, half a tomato and a small pot of Heinz baked beans.

The waiter is friendly and offers to get my cutlery before leaving me to the warm plate of food. It was.... as I expected. A standard supermarket breakfast. Nothing too bad not to eat, but then nothing you’d rush back for.

The egg yolk was runng and the sausage meat was perhaps a little too salty and, dare I say it, processed. The bacon could definitely have been crispier.

But in this time of a cost-of-living crisis, a delicious breakfast at Flourish costing £13 is not within everyone’s price range. Even at legendary greasy spoons likeThe Fountain Cafe in St George a regular breakfast costs £5.50, and at the zero-rated hygiene The Oak Tree cafe in Gloucester Road, a breakfast costs £6.50. Breakfast at the now-closed Colosseum in Redcliff cost £5.

So at £4.49, the small breakfast at Morrisons might just be unbeatable for price in Bristol - just don’t expect too much in quality. As my penny-pinching grandmother used to say; ‘it’ll do’.
