We were at the airport at breakfast time which admittedly does limit the options – I’m always amazed at the people you see knocking back a couple of pints at 7am, but I suppose they are on holiday! Personally I don’t really want a burger at breakfast time (though I haven’t ruled it out!) which means there are not so many choices on offer.
My boyfriend wanted a full English which meant that a couple of places were out; we chose therefore Garfunkel’s as I’d eaten dinner at the chain before (though not for a long time) but never had breakfast. He had his full English, which came with bacon, sausage, fried egg, baked beans and toast; it would also have had mushroom and grilled tomato but he asked to leave these off and was offered extra bacon instead which was appreciated!
I don’t really do full English and don’t like omelette but wanted something more substantial than pancakes, so I chose a toasted ham and cheese sandwich. It came with an option of chips or hash browns and since this was breakfast time, I decided to have the hash browns. Unfortunately the hash browns were very oily and overcooked and while the sandwich was OK, I was quite disappointed. My boyfriend’s full English was fairly good but he had the same overdone hash browns. Little were we to know that this was still a lot better than the breakfasts we would end up having in our hotels in Mexico!
