If you are a regular reader of my blog (Hi Mum!) you’ll know that I’m recovering from a hip replacement (What? You didn’t know.. well then catch up here right now!) this means I’m off work, stuck at home and lonely. Let’s face it, there really is only so much television you can watch and realistically, how many times can you watch all seven seasons of the Gilmore Girls before you know every episode word perfect (it’s 6 times by the way).
So, the other week Neil took me out of the house and I got dressed and everything and I was treated to breakfast at Boston Tea Party.
See – real actual clothes!
Boston Tea Party have around 19 cafes around the country. We visited our local, here in Plymouth.
I used to work next door to the building that Boston Tea Party sits in, it was a glorious antiques centre and I loved it, I loved walking around in there, when the antiques place closed down, the rather beautiful building sat empty for quite a long time, so it was pretty exciting when Boston Tea Party moved in!
Situated in Sutton Harbour, it is a lovely setting to stop and have something to eat.
Fortunately for me, Boston Tea Party offer a gluten free option, in the form of an award winning sourdough produced by Hobbs House Bakery, you can read more about it here in this blog post by Boston Tea Party.
The menu has lots of options and you can switch out the bread options for gluten free bread. There are also veggie and vegan options available.
So, back to my breakfast. I was feeling fancy so I basically ordered two breakfasts (this is why I’m not thin). First up I went for poached eggs and bacon on the famous gluten free sourdough.
It tasted as fabulous as it looks. The poached eggs were perfect and the bacon is so, so tasty. Neil has eaten here a few times and he says he always has a brilliant breakfast here.
After my pre-breakfast breakfast, I filled up on some toast – more sourdough with the tastiest jam.
I paired this amazing gluten free breakfast with a Fruits of the Forest smoothie.
The smoothie is to die for. So nice and fruity and totally healthy right? It completely balanced out all the carbs I’m sure.
All in all, it was a very tasty breakfast, thanks to Neil for the treat. I’m really glad that Boston Tea Party recognises that us Coeliacs like to eat tasty bread too. The cafe is lovely inside, roomy and light and there is parking right outside, the staff are all super friendly and polite. It is a great place for breakfast and I hope to check out some of the other menu options soon.
