A nice way to spend a weekend morning. Breakfast at The Coast Bar and cafe in Cowes.
It was a busy place to be. The numbers of people pulling suitcases stopping in for breakfast before heading for the RedJet told us that many people were heading for home after spending New Year’s Eve in Cowes.
Despite being local, we rarely go to The Coast and I always wonder why we are so infrequent when we do go. The ambience is really nice… all wood, leather chairs. The staff are friendly – yesterday we had two absolutely delightful waitresses who could not do enough for us – despite the busy morning. Husband-Gusto’s many requests for coffee refills were fulfilled quickly with a huge smile. They even had board games on the counter which kept Baby-Gusto amused.
2016 is going to be my Year Of Tea.
Husband-Gusto’s Full English (minus the baked beans) was very good he said. Although his gold standard is the 7-item breakfast on Red Funnel Ferries, and this was almost as tasty.
But the real standout meal was my Eggs Florentine.
Two softly poached eggs on wilted spinach and English muffins. The hollandaise was absolutely wonderful. It was light, creamy and lemony. This was a total joy.
I could really get into breakfast. 🙂
Two ‘new’ bloggers are blogging from the Isle of Wight also. Rosy has written some desperately funny blogs and her latest details her adventures on the Island.
Reniera has newly relocated with her gorgeous family to the Island and has some fabulous recipes and adventures and stories to recount.
Happy New Year!
