Description: The original breakfast and burger company - Originally Feed cafe serving breakfast & hot meals until 4pm. After researching, tasting and being a few stone larger, FEED has found its perfect gourmet burger recipe. After lots of DIY, new furniture & decorating, the first burger was produced and doors opened on the 19th of May 2014. With a simple quality focused menu, FEED has not massively deviated from its original approach - The best honest burgers and breakfast. The Breakfast Company serves English, American & Continental Breakfasts. The Burger Company serves an amazing range of Beef, Chicken & Vegetarian burgers, Fries, Nachos & Dogs.

“I feel bad writing this but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

My fiance was desperate to try this place after seeing the reviews here on TripAdvisor and the picture of the humongous breakfast. We arrived quite early, so we were the only ones in the cafe to start with, but this was nice before it started to get busier!

The cafe has nice simple decor, with an open kitchen. We both ordered breakfast with an Isle of Wight sausage. I asked if I could swap my beans for another sausage - which they were more than happy to do.

The coffee was freshly ground and the breakfasts came quickly. Sausage, bacon, fried egg, tomato, mushrooms, toast, beans and cubed fried potatoes - these were great!!

We both agreed that we were a bit disappointed about the IoW sausage quality; it was basically a larger version of the cheap bargain sausages that you get. We also felt that the bill (£20 for two breakfasts and three coffees) was a little steep for the quality of the food - however you can't quibble about the portion sizes.

In summary the portion sizes were brill, however the price did not match the quality.

“Unsure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

I went to Feed last weekend before a trip to London.
The menu is extensive, they seem to have been to competitors as a lot of their menu is similar! I ordered a Ham Hock Wrap but was advised they had run out of that, ribs and a number of other things on the menu - I ended up with the breakfast, which was nice, the profile picture does not do this establishment justice! However, my breakfast was served on a plastic skillit - not sure if I like this mimic?

Staff were inoffensive, not particularly friendly but not rude,

I will return again as can't say it was awful but expected a lot more from the reviews.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

you gotta come here and have the full english. What is really amazing about this place is that the portion is just about right, and the staff are absolutely brilliant, whatever time you walk in on a sunday morning, ha there you are, a big smile welcomes you and sits you down. And no brainer its full english !!! all the locals eat here, and you chat over whatever you fancy and I promise you will learn something interesting. Try it out when you are down here next, you would love it.

“Outstanding service at breakfast time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We got sick of eating rubbish breakfast at Holiday Inn Express in Gunwharf so decided to give Feed a go about 9 month ago........and what a great choice it was.

The breakfast in here is amazing and good value too, they also take credit cards so if you are away on business it makes claiming expenses easier.

Another thing to add is the staff, they always make you feel welcome and the service is very fast and courteous. Free parking over road if you get lucky otherwise a trip to the parking meter is advisable.
