We visited on a gloriously sunny autumn morning and the view from the cafe (when not obscured by delivery trucks) was outstanding. The service was efficient and friendly and the tea came in a proper china tea-pot. From previous reviews I was expecting the full English breakfast to be something to savour but I can only say it was average.
The bacon was nice and not the sort you can buy in Co-Op, shame the same can't be said for the sausage which seemed to be of the "value" brand verity. The beans weren’t Heinz (I like Heinz beans but not many other brands) so didn’t do much for me, they also must have been being kept warm for sometime as they were quite mushy. The fried egg was over-done for my liking but I suppose we are still blaming Edwina Curry for that. The toast was OK and my grilled tomato was as it should be, however two friends commented that theirs was still too hard to have been grilled properly.
My partner (wisely as it turned out) asked for mushrooms instead of the sausage which wasn’t a problem for the staff at all, she reported they were the best bit of her breakfast.
The relativity in the title refers to the value of the breakfast, walking to the café from the train station we passed several outlets offering breakfasts at least a Pound cheaper than Café Blue, but the reviews here made us determined to try Café Blue above all others.
An establishment nearly next door, so having the same excellent views, was offering Sausage, Bacon and fried egg for only £1.99 and it’s hard to see the justification in charging over £2 more just to have some beans and one slice of “Mothers Pride” toast.
All in all an average breakfast in a lovely setting served by a friendly and helpful young lady, but next time I might checkout some of the cheaper rivals to get a good comparison on the breakfast scene in Weymouth town centre.
