The Green Tomato

03.07.2009 The Green Tomato, 100 Western Road, Brighton.

greentomatoThe Green Tomato describes itself as a Deli cafe, with a range of fresh made sandwiches, baguettes and wraps to eat in or take away, as well as some delicious sounding and reasonably priced salads and specials- and the Hot Chicken Salad with chicken, mixed leaves, tomato, cucumber, olives and french dressing for £3.95 looked particularly scrumptous. They also serve a range of All Day Breakfasts which of course is why we are here. I ordered the Veg (2 sausages, 2 eggs, 2 hash browns, tomato, mushrooms, beans and toast) and D the Big One ( 2 eggs, 2 bacon, sausage, beans, 2 hash browns a choice of tomato or mushrooms and toast) both cost £4.95 and drinks are extra.

While waiting for the food we have a chance to check out the interior. The Green Tomato has a fresh contemporary feel with comfy black leatherette seating contrasting nicely with the pastel mauve and mint green walls. Reading material on offer includes a selection of red top tabloids and freebie local magazines and newsletters. Madonna’s greatest hits are playing in the background (Vogue,  Justify my Love etc) which is always a good thing in my book. Service is friendly and  efficient. Drinks arrive quick and the coffee is delicious and hot – served in a big round mug with extra nooky bonus points awarded for using fairtrade sugar.

Eggs are served sunny side up and the veggie sausages, while not at all sausage like, were particularly nice. D appreciated the hash browns, an unusual addition in most meaty breakfasts, and overall said this was one of his best. Toast was of the thick white doorsteppy variety. As you can see from the photos, portions were good and generous, making this an all round breakfast experience we definitely will be coming back to repeat.
