“The Big Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Regular visitors here. The menu is varied with all palates catered for. Great for lunch or an afternoon snack but if it's breakfast you're after, look no further!! If you're starving try the "Beast" if youve not eaten for days there's always the "Mega Beast". Husband and I have one between us and never finish everything, but you can get a take away carton for leftovers if needed. Seen many a burly builder attempt the mega beast solo and have failed. Not for the faint hearted. More importantly the food is actually really good. Very tasty as well as epic value for money. Staff are lovely, nice atmosphere and plenty of seats. If they served bigger pots of tea I'd move in!

“Amazing breakfasts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

I had breakfast in Uplands Diner last month on the recommendation of one of the Uplands Market stallholders. I had an amazing vegetarian breakfast and my boyfriend successfully tackled 'the beast' which was huge! The ingredients are all really high quality and the best thing is the total cost of our meals including drinks was under £15 - amazing value!

The menu has a huge range of options (not only breakfasts - they do jacket potatoes, burgers, lasagne, etc.), all at decent prices and the staff are really friendly.

We are planning on going again after the next Uplands Market and have recommended to our friends.

“Most Welcoming Business!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my university friends have been visiting here since the first year of university. We are in our final year and about to graduate and will definitely miss this place! It was always there when we couldn't be bothered to cook or simply had a horrid hangover!! I always have and probably always will recommend this place to others as I've always enjoyed my visits. I'm sure we'll have to arrange a reunion here so that we don't go too long without visiting! keep adding more to the menu and never get rid of the milkshakes!

“BEST BREAKFAST EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

There is nothing better than a greasy spoon when you fancy it and I have yet to be let down by this little gem!
With something to please everyone you cant go wrong by taking family or friends. It is great value for money and fills you up for the day no matter what you have. It may not be the healthiest of places to choose to eat but if youre going to eat some greasy spoon meal then you may as well do it properly and enjoy it!
