Pair of breakfasts in Ealing at Côte & Cafe 786
By Aku FuHALAL STATUS Côte will cook vegetarian breakfasts separately upon request. Cafe 786 is fully Halal.
Being big on breakfasts, I’m often trying out what’s on offer at various local eateries; and here’s two worth a mention.
The first is Côte restaurant in Ealing, West London, which doesn’t use shoddy ingredients, putting it a pip above the other half dozen Halal brekkie places in the vicinity.
It’s a nice looking themed-place with friendly staff and efficient service.
They have some good veggie options too, like the full English Vegetarian Breakfast.
And as part of the breakfast deal, it comes with a hot drink and a fresh orange juice.
We also ordered an Eggs Florentine which came on a toasted muffin, along with some French toast.
The mixture of sweet French toast, with my savoury poached egg and mushroom and tomato, was a delight.
The veggie sausage was fine, but the strong spicy taste got a bit irritating by the end.
While the full half of avacoado was a good touch, though hard to finish, overall this turned out to be a satisfying breakfast.
Price-wise, while it wasn’t on the cheap side, it wasn’t extortionate either given the quality ingredients used.
And with cozy, private cubicles, this place makes for a comfortable place to visit, so I will be back although infrequently.
Another breakfast place I went to, and one I’ve been to before, was again situated in Ealing and not too far away on Pitshanger Lane.
Cafe 786 is a small cafe that’s largely visited by locals and school mums, and offers a decent menu.
The giant sausage as always was, to borrow a Poker term, the kicker!
The breakfasts also came alongside a flat white coffee, and a chai latte – a frothy cardamom-infused sweat tea – that was soothingly satisfying.
All in all, a nice option if you’re close by; but not a place to travel to from afar.
