After a week off the big breakfast is back again and this time we’ve sent out our foody into The Cornfield Bakery to sample their full English breakfast.
“I’d never actually ventured into The Cornfield Bakery before and in fact I certainly didn’t no they had a Café in the shop so I was pleasantly surprised when I was asked to go here this week.
My first thoughts were that it was very small inside and I wasn’t sure where my breakfast was going to be made, but as I asked where I could purchase a breakfast I was ushered upstairs to a different seating area where I could order my breakfast and take a seat.
The Cornfield Bakery has a lovely little seating area which although small has a wonderful view of the road below so I naturally chose a window seat so I could watch the hustle and bustle of the Thame shoppers as they carried out their day to day activities.
As I scoured the menu I found the full English breakfast and to my delight I’d found Thame’s cheapest breakfast so far at £6.10, so off I went to place my order at the breakfast kiosk. As I sat back down at my table with a view I pondered if this could be the best value for money breakfast in Thame.
It wasn’t long before I could make up my mind as my breakfast arrived around 10 minutes later. My initial thoughts were that the plate was a little bit small for a full English breakfast as the beans had taken over the plate and started attacking the sausage.
Plate size aside this was a lovely breakfast the beans were piping hot and the toast was a nice temperature. As with any full English the egg and sausages are key to getting it right and this breakfast didn’t disappoint. The egg was well cooked with the happy medium between runny and under cooked being found, and the sausage certainly didn’t taste like a cheap version which is quite common among breakfasts at this value – my only gripe was that there was only one sausage but at £6.10 I don’t think you can go wrong. The bacon was well cooked and there was a good ratio of meat to fat which is always a plus point. The only downside was that the tomatoes tasted like they could have been left on a little longer.
However overall this breakfast is great value for money with the only real downside being the presentation of the breakfast – if like myself you didn’t know The Cornfield Bakery had a seating area for breakfasts then I’d definitely recommend you give this place a go, you might even be lucky enough to get a window seat and have breakfast with a view like I did.”
