Steve finally conceded that out of all of them he wanted to try Gas but he wasn't sure if it would be too busy as when we walked past it the first time it looked pretty packed. Anyway we decided to re trace our steps and try. The glorious sunshine meant that all the outside tables were taken but when we walked in one of the helpful staff members directed us to one end of the large communal table and we soon settled into our spot.
The full name of this place is Gas Eatery and Supplies and the Gas refers to gastronomy as opposed to cooking with gas. Breakfast options are made to order and on a menu whereas lunch options involve gazing into glass cabinets filled with goodies; pastries, sandwiches, tapas style dishes and salads.
We decided to try a bit of breakfast, lunch and tapas by sharing a Mediterranean breakfast, some lamb kofta meatballs (lunch) and one serve of the chicken and halloumi sausages (tapas) with a small Greek salad so we get our 5 a day and all washed down with some English Breakfast tea. It was just what we needed.
The Mediterranean breakfast consists of a lamb sausage, bacon, feta cheese, toasted Turkish bread, a fried egg and a mound of home made baked beans. The beans were yummy; smoky and tomatoey with bacon bits and everything else on the plate was good too. The Greek salad was also very good with nuts and olives strewn throughout and a delicious creamy feta dressing. We enjoyed the lamb koftas although I did think there was probably a touch too much tomato sauce as it was quite overpowering but it just meant that we didn't eat all of the sauce so no biggie. Chicken and halloumi sausages were different and the bacon wrapped round each one was a yummy touch but I'd be happy to try something else next time.
Really enjoyed a relaxed breakfast / brunch / lunch here and would be happy to return.
