Tuesday is Food Day - Cheese & Alfies

Breakfast!  It's the best meal of the day!  And as you probably already know it's my favourite meal to eat out, especially with The Girls or with The Boy.  A couple of weekend ago The Girls and I popped along to Cheese & Alfies in Christchurch, famed for it's quirky cafe-bistro style. 

Cheese & Alfies is situated in the historic part of Christchurch on a cobbled lane.  It's bright marine-blue exterier is eyecatching and inviting.  With tables and chairs outside and an eclectic mix of furniture inside it's a warm and welcoming enviornment.  They serve Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch and Dinner and the menu is full of fresh, simple and family-friendly food.  Plus they often have an offer on.

It being breakfast I would normally opt for Pancakes but on this occaision I thought I'd try the Pan Haggety (sauteed potatoes, ham, egg and gryure) and I wasn't disappointed.  It arrived in a skillet and was enough to feed and army!  The egg was cooked perfectly with a nice runny yoke. 

The Girls had Pancakes (I wasn't jealous at all! And yes I will be having these next time!) and the Small Pan Breakfast (also served in a skillet).  The photos below just don't do it justice!

With a pregnant lady among us the staff at Cheese & Alfies were friendly and accommodating of her request for a fully cooked egg ,and also welcoming of the Mum and Baby in our group.  We were very well looked after, and after all that food I can't say I didn't have a little nap on the sofa when I got home!!  (Don't tell the Boy!)

If you've not been to Cheese & Alfies before I'd definitely recommend it, I've only been for breakfast but am looking forward to an evening meal soon.  In fact I enjoyed breakfast so much The Girls and I are going again ina couple of weeks! 

Oh and don't forget to check out their website and their Facebook Page.

Happy Tuesday my lovelies. xx
