Every pocket of the globe needs a great local cafe. Somewhere to walk to on a Sunday morning knowing the smell of coffee and a paper await. Kettle Cafe has recently popped up in Lathlain much to the delight the locals piling in for honest home cooked fare.
Our friends who all live close have been singing Kettle's praises since it opened. Breakfasts are my favourite catch ups so we quickly snapped up the opportunity to check it out. The cafe has a breezy neighbourhood feel with warm furnishings and welcoming staff. There are cosy and intimate tables for lovebirds, larger tables for groups and the rustic communal table is perfect for spreading out the paper. The rugrat friendly corner is right by the low, lounge style seating for parents to enjoy their meal whilst the little ones play.
The breakfast menu is short and simple and the counter filled with sweets and muffins for those wanting a sweeter start to the day.
I can never understand my boyfriend at breakfast time. He always orders what I think is the boring option, this time the classic free range eggs poached with avocado and bacon which was wolfed down in seconds. The lemon and thyme polenta served with creamy mushrooms, rocket, thick shavings of parmesan and a drizzle of basil oil caught my eye so I added a serve of poached eggs on top. It was warming and hearty, tasting like a Winter breakfast should.
Kettle Cafe is a quaint little cafe just perfect for this corner of the world.
