Breakfast At The Family Tree, Whatstandwell

The Man Bird and I like a leisurely breakfast at the weekend as you know dear reader, and this week saw us poddle over to Whatstandwell to visit The Family Tree cafe. It is a lovely spacious room with nice neutral decor and plenty of features such as sash windows with shutters and a cosy log burner at one end of the room.



The main body of the cafe is given to regular tables and chairs and then there are several squashy sofas at the other end to sit at if you prefer. When we arrived there were plenty of people already in having food and drinks, and several of them had their dogs with them, so for those of you who like to take your fur baby with you then the Family Tree is just the place for you.



The staff were very smart and polite and the premises themselves were very clean, so we were looking forward to a pleasant experience. As usual His Nibs had the Full English breakfast, and this one comes with a slice of toast and a cup of tea or filter coffee included in the price of £6.50, and I had the Eggs Royal and a Latte.

Before long our food was being placed before us and it was piping hot and very tasty; The Boy Wonder loved the thick rashers of bacon and said that the yolks of his eggs were the brightest he’s seen. The Black Pudding was a nice thick slice too and was a good quality version, and the tomato was grilled nicely so that it was nice and squishy.



There were plenty of mushrooms and a nicely crispy hash brown that was pleasingly soft in the middle. The baked beans were in a separate little dish on the plate so that they didn’t make the toast soggy, which is always a nice touch. Needless to say The Man was very impressed with his breakfast here.

My own Eggs Royal were equally yummy; the muffin had been lightly toasted and both eggs were poached perfectly so that the whites were set and the dazzling yolks were nice and runny. Generous slices of Salmon had been concertinaed over the top of the eggs and garnished with a fresh herb sprig so that the dish looked as lovely as it tasted.



A nice amount of rich Hollandaise sauce was the last touch and tasted lovely too. I have had Eggs royal at several places and these were as nice as others I’ve tasted, so we were both more than a little pleased with our food at The Family Tree.

The tea and coffee were both nice too, so all in all it was a lovely relaxed way to spend an hour or so together. There is ample parking just across the road from the premises so you don’t have to faff about too much, which is always a plus point in my opinion.

If you haven’t been before then I heartily recommend you give this little beauty a try, they do vegetarian options too as well as breakfast baps.
