Patisserie Valerie Windsor (breakfast) Saturday 13th August 2011

Venue:- Patisserie Valerie, Windsor Royal Station, Windsor. SL4 1PJ
Tel:-       01753 858955

My partner had a full English (£7.95) which consisted of two fried eggs, 1 cumberland sausage, 3 rashers of bacon, a tomato (halved), a portion of mushrooms and two rounds of granary toast.
I had the poached eggs (2) and Bacon (3 rashers) with two slices of granary toast (£6.60) plus an extra serving of mushrooms(£1.55).
To drink an Americano coffeee (Illy) - £2.70 and a fresh orange juice at £3.05.

Total cost of meal - £21.85

Service was efficient and breakfast was served piping hot, the fried eggs were complemented on, the poached were ok. Bacon was good and the toast was plentiful and hot - came with TEN portions of unsalted butter! The coffee was good served in a large cup (bucket!) and came with a seperate serving of hot milk. The orange juice was very large and very good value for money. The sausage was thought to be too coarse by my partner.

Overall the meal was about average and we have eaten cheaper and better in other local venues.

Patisserie Valerie is an excellent patisserie as long as you want to use it as a patisserie, the cakes are to die for and are all home made. They do an excellent order service for special occasions and have yet to find somewhere better. Snack meals and afternoon tea are available all day and I would recommend these - but breakfast, sorry, very average try somewhere else.

  1. Great start. Look forward to reading more. I think that background goes very well with stories about full English breakfasts.
