Breakfast at Bills

Before we headed off to the BBC Good Food Cakes and Bakes Show myself and my sister headed to Bills for breakfast. I had heard great things about Bills from lots of bloggers and vloggers, so was very eager to try it out.

The interior was really cool, with a huge array of products for sale lining the walls, but it wasn't so cool that you feel out of place. 

We grabbed a menu each and started debating what to have. The waiters and waitresses were that perfect mix of leaving you alone to a leisurely breakfast, whilst also being attentive enough that you never wanted for anything. I really like that there was a brown paper bag in each cutlery pot, so if you wanted to take something home with you it was really easy to manage it. Good idea Bills!

Nat went for eggs royale, which is smoked salmon and poached egg with hollandaise sauce on sourdough toast, topped with pumpkin seeds. I didn't get to try any, but I was assured that it was really tasty.

I went for the vegetarian breakfast, not because I am a vegetarian, but because it sounded like the most unusual thing on the menu. It was two slices of sourdough toast, one topped with hummus and tomatoes, the other with guacamole and mushrooms, with poached egg and lots of sweet chilli sauce. It was incredible. A complete taste sensation, and something I will be recreating for Rich at some point. The mixture of flavours and textures worked wonderfully together and it was a light but satisfying start to the day. 

Happily full, we headed off to the Business Design Centre to start our day of cake eating, which you can read all about here.

I can't wait to go back to Bills again, hopefully for lunch or tea this time, as I have heard that they're yummy too!

  1. Bills do some really great food! I'm lucky enough to live within walking distance of the original store, so I've been scoffing their delicious dishes for years. I can heartily recommend their cocktails too- especially the amaretto sour :) xxx

    1. You are very lucky! I have since discovered that they have one in York, so I will be visiting there as often as I can from now on :) x
