Today is a busy day for us. We have some preparation to do for Point & Shoot's fifth show in Brighton going back up tonight at The Warren: Main House, and we are all a bit tired from seeing the movies last night or skyping with family in Australia, who are seven hours ahead of us. So something simple for today's entry - and if it's not entertaining enough, check out today's photo for our movie moments... that might be more fun.
Anyway, another food one that we had to tick off the list. #11: Go for breakfast at Breakfast at Tiffany's.
A bit of a chain restaurant from what we can gather, there are few locations around Brighton and Hove. Tyler and Robert ate at one when they first arrived and weren't enamoured, but were willing to give it a whirl again, but there was no way we were getting Tamara near a greasy spoon! Fair enough, when you eat as well as she does, there's no going back! So we chose the one opposite The Warren and St Peter's Church. Nice and close to home. Plus, we were pretty hungry at that point and couldn't be stuffed walking too far.
It's a bit of a drizzly day today, and we were pretty keen to get out of the rain and into the warmth of Breakfaast at Tiffany's, and it was nice to see a few people eating their late breakfast/ brunch. The decor was like a less in-your-face American diner, with pictures of Marylin and Audrey all over the place, and comfortable, simple table and chair settings. We've been getting used to paying a fair bit for our meals here, so were pleasantly surprised but a bit suspicious when we looked at the prices and found we could get a breakfast and a coffee for £5! And the choice was reasonable too!
The food was served fairly quickly, which was impressive. And Tyler and Erin, the coffee snobs of the group, dared to try a coffee... hmmm. To be honest, this was not the nicest way to start the day. The food, while cheap and plentiful, was not very nice at all. And the coffee was drinkable, but not what we would enjoy. Maybe this is all because we're lucky in Australia to have so much fresh produce and we eat very well. Even over here in Brighton we have eaten at some great, though a bit pricier, food places. So the verdict was that we prefer to cook at home or eat at a more expensive place. Even Robert agreed.
We do have this to say though - the customer service was excellent. The staff were super friendly and really relaxed while obviously trying to do their best to look after and please all their customers. Nice work guys.
While we probably won't eat here again, we'd recommend this place to anyone who is serious about their budgeting for breakfast. Or maybe go to try a jacket potato? Or just the toast? The toast was nice.
