Cafe corner in the Dickson shops is a busy place of a weekend morning. You don’t really choose which of the cafes you eat at, rather taking wherever there’s a spare table with shade.
This means that the cafe which makes the most money is the one which can churn the customers fastest.
We took a seat at Hudsons and enjoyed the talented buskers, playing perhaps a touch too loud.
Ordering at the counter got us a number on a stick and in the time it took to buy a newspaper our drinks had arrived with the food not far behind.
Tasteless tomatoes. Ropey scrambled eggs. The bacon was OK.
My date’s pumpkin fritters caused her to remark that perhaps pumpkin is not suitable for frittering, although it reportedly tasted fine and the hollandaise sauce was particularly good.
While we were eating our empty glasses were whisked away time is money after all.
The atmosphere is great, but in my opinion there are better breakfasts to be had for the money elsewhere.
