This morning I decided to go to BHS (British Home Stores) for a fry up type breakfast. £3.49 bought me a mug of tea and eight items for my breakfast. I found it hard to choose eight items and went for seven instead - a sort of sausage, two slices of cold bacon, a thin sliver of black pudding, baked beans, a hash brown, tomato and some complimentary toast. The cafe there is huge and would seat at least 500. However this particular morning there were three diners, myself and two old ladies. Whilst I was waiting to be served another lady customer said that it "was good to get a choice ". I nodded and really wanted to say - "hey that's buffet breakfasts for you!"
The plated breakfast sat on my tray for three or four minutes while the sole assistant dithered about with a fried egg and then came to the till to serve me.
The main breakfast wasn't that hot in temperature and the tea was scolding. I felt obliged to take a picture just so you can see the meal. I probably won't go back again.
I have no idea what the sausage was made of and the hash brown was a bit crusty.
