Breakfast is something I tend to skip now and again, sometimes just grabbing a cereal bar while running out of the door as a last minute thought. I always make sure the children have cereal or toast so I am unsure why I have such an aversion to it! I think it is probably because there is just so much else to do on a morning that I see sitting down to eat a bit of luxury time I am willing to forfeit it for another 5 minutes in bed!
This morning I knew it was going to be a busy one as we had to head straight into town to drop off paperwork about moving home, pick up paperwork for hubby from the opticians and also check to see if Blogosphere magazine was in WHSmith! Thankfully it was as I was informed I need to go elsewhere to drop off the house papers and hubbys papers weren’t ready so would have been a wasted journey if not for the fabulous mag!
After finding out all the above I was feeling a little frazzled so both myself and Amelia headed off in search of breakfast. Having almost exhausted Durham of lunch time eateries and never been to one for breakfast we headed down towards Old Elvet and came across Chapters Tea Rooms.
Walking inside I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and the greeting, both bright, cheery and welcoming! We were shown to our table and given the menu, from which we chose scrambled eggs on white toast for Amelia and I opted for the Greek Omelette (filled with peppers, tomato and feta cheese)
Looking around Chapters there was a beautiful feel of homeliness, from the pictures and quotes on the wall to the decor, plants and lighting, everything just seemed to ‘work’.
We only waited around 5 minutes before our breakfast as served, Amelia devoured her scrambled eggs which I was rather surprised at as she usually pushes her food around for a while before grazing.
My Greek Omelette was delicious! Filled to the brim with feta cheese, some of which was gently melting away inside, al dente peppers and cherry tomatoes adding to the overall creamy consistency of one of the best omelettes I have ever tried. Washed down with a pretty looking latte, I can safely say I could easily fall in love with going out for our breakfast instead of dinner!
What a fabulous way to start the day and made all the more perfect by coming home to sit outside with freshly brewed loose leaf tea, Blogosphere magazine, my first book from Zoellas Book club and a delivery of Kiehls skin products for me to sample!
Today was a good day!
