dumbwaiterThe Dumb Waiter is a regular of ours when we’re in the Laines. There are a wide range of reasonably priced breakfasts on offer with lots of extras giving you the opportunity to mix and match a tailor made fry up to suit any particular tastes, including plenty of vegan options too. The colourful decor outside extends inwards, with brightly stenciled walls  covered in posters and local artwork creating an arty, community feel perfect for ths side of town. There is also the choice of eating outside in the garden or in front of house. We choose to eat upstairs today, which is a nice and quiet area with a lovely big window giving us a great view of all the frenetic shopping going on down below.

There is nothing negative to say about the service, which  is fast and friendly, though they rather foolishly waylaid D on his way back from the toilets and entrusted him with carrying the drinks to our table; inevitably resulting in a rather deadly trail of tea and coffee  snaking its way up the stairs.

Breakfast is delicious. The meaty comes with mushrooms and chunky golden potato wedges.  The egg looks a treat, cooked sunny side up on a fried slice. The sausages are flavourful and overall D voted this breakfast one of the best so far.

My bubble and squeak was a chunky, tasty addition and the veggie sausages are nice and spicy tasting.

Toilets are ok with plenty of reading material on the door to keep you occupied. Both breakfasts, complete with drinks, come to £12.60 which is fairly good value round these parts. We really like this place – it’s a friendly, relaxed place to enjoy a yummy breakfast with plenty of choice on offer.
