Little Poms, a new local cafe, has finally opened, and we enjoyed breakfast there last Sunday.
The decor is lovely and bright. I like the fact that the kitchen is in full view, complete with large pots of boiling water for perfectly poached eggs. Black tiles on the kitchen wall complement the black and white china plates. Some blue bentwood chairs among the brown ones all add to the ambience.
The menu seems aimed at brunch. There were also yummy-looking pastries and scones available, and prices are reasonable. Stephen was sorry there was no traditional big breakfast, but was consoled with baked beans, poached eggs, chorizo, etc, on Turkish bread. I chose poached eggs and a potato rosti, which came with tasty tomato relish, and I was delighted to find they use loose tea leaves. The tea things are elegantly glass, and the tea was weak as requested. I forgot to ask for a lemon slice, but I’m sure that would have been available.
The toilets are unisex – a nice touch in these days of fluid genders. This cafe is a welcome addition to the north-east corner of the city centre, and will be popular I’m sure.

and we’ll go there another day.”
