During the last month, we had a problem with our site and I wasn’t able to post a blog. But all is OK now, and I realised that I had failed to mention that our favourite cafe at Hornsea Mere had a new Autumn Menu. Guess who sampled it for Breakfast on another beautiful sunny Sunday morning? Yes. That’s right. Me and Erik.
You’ll be amazed what’s on Hornsea Mere Cafe’s new menu. So much to choose from. This huge blackboard described the breakfast and savory foods, and just reading them made your mouth water. Round the corner, the other blackboard described the hot drinks, cold drinks, (including Prosecco, which made me smile as I love a glass of it) and a selection of sweet treats – something for everyone at any time of day.
Erik and I sat outside in the sun, just relaxing and marveling at the sun reflecting in the shimmering water of the Mere, and the endless mix of birds of all sizes, from fluffy chicks, various sized and coloured ducks, geese of every description and the odd swan floating in the morning sun. It is surely a special place.
Then our breakfasts arrived. Erik had ordered Black Pudding, Fried Eggs and Chutney, which he declared ‘fabulous’. I had ordered Welsh Rarebit Crumpets with a side order of grilled tomatoes and juicy mushrooms and it was absolutely delicious. These breakfasts at the Hornsea Mere Cafe are such a special treat, whether you just want a Full English Breakfast, or want to try Eggs Benedict, Croque Monsieur, a Goats Cheese Omelette, Duck Hash with Fried Egg and Piccalilli or even a Fried Chocolate Sandwich. Even a simple Bacon or Sausage Sandwich. Vegetarians are also catered for, so no problems there.
Ham, Eggs and Chips and Smoked Haddock Fishcakes, Burgers, Cornish Pastie and Steak Pie are all available daytime eating, plus lighter bites such as Houmous and Tzatziki to nibble on. Sandwiches hot and cold are on order, including Rump Steak, Grilled Cheese, and Smoked Salmon, Crayfish or Crab or just simple Ham. Side portions of chips, for those with a hearty appetite. And then there are the desserts. But that’s another day.
Hornsea Mere Cafe is also hoping to open on various evenings for special events, and I believe that a Folk Evening (with Food) is about to be announced. Sound great, and for us it’s just a 5 minute walk down the road, so I am keeping my eyes open on the Hornsea Mere Cafe facebook page for the announcement.
Tickets will go quickly, I think, so if you are interested, have a look. May see you there.
