The Wolseley City Breakfast Menu

The Grand European Café’s focus ensures that Wolseley City’s breakfast menu includes a delightful range of options. Start with something small and sweet like pain au chocolat or banana bread with vanilla butter and fruit compote. For those preferring lighter fare, there’s a variety of cereals and fruits, including caramelised pink grapefruit or lemon yoghurt with granola and fruit compote.

The hot breakfasts are particularly enticing. The full English breakfast is hearty with eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, black pudding and mushrooms. They also have Benedict or Royale eggs. I had no hesitation in selecting the Florentine version, featuring perfectly wilted dark green spinach, fluffy muffins, and creamy hollandaise sauce. Having tried to make this during the pandemic, I appreciate the difficulty of getting this dish right! Meanwhile, my partner savoured The Wolseley’s special fishcakes with poached eggs and hollandaise.
