A couple of weeks ago I received a lovely message inviting me to try out a breakfast from Easy Eats in Ealing Broadway inviting my family and I to try one of their breakfasts. Even better they said they could deliver it to us.
Breakfast delivered?! Wow – I’ve lived in London for 20 years now and yet this possibility has never occurred to us. So that was the first exciting thing!
We looked at the menu on Deliveroo with great excitement and the children were in great suspense on Saturday morning waiting for it to arrive. It certainly took the pain of his football training being cancelled away from my son! It arrived promptly and we scurried about getting it all laid out as there was a LOT of food!
Our vegetarian children opted to share a large vegetarian breakfast between them “to save room for pancakes and waffles” – good decision! The vegetarian breakfast looked out yummy actually and I think I’ll try that one next time. It consisted of avocado, fried egg, mushrooms, baked beans and halloumi cheese. This made it an idea sharing breakfast for the kids as my daughter doesn’t like avocado and my son doesn’t like halloumi! The English breakfast that my husband and I shared was huge and delicious. There were a range of different breakfast sizes available. My husband wolfed all his down but I’d probably go a size smaller last time – although the dog was very grateful to get a sausage and a rasher of bacon! We got the breakfast deals with a hot drink and the children enjoyed sharing a hot chocolate with theirs.
There is a HUGE variety of breakfasts on offer with Easy Eats – other options available include savoury crepes (definitely want to try these too!), baguettes, sandwiches, toasties, crepes, Paninis and more. The do loads of different sweet pancake, waffle toppings and milkshakes as well as
We also got some smoothies and fresh fruit juices to make us feel a bit healthier! They were delicious and there was a good juice of flavours. I had the Strawberry Delight smoothie, my husband the Pineapple Sunset and the kids a fresh orange juice and fresh apple juice. I think if I were to be really picky I’d like to see a few more options for smoothies. And please Easy Eats if you are listening- fresh watermelon juice would be AMAZING! Ok I said I was being picky. The choices available are great!
Oh my goodness were we spoilt with desserts. A delicious pancake with the most perfect consistency, sprinkled with strawberries and chocolate sauce. A scrumptious waffle with banana slices and chocolate. We also got a tray of brownies – to eat another time and they were a gooey paradise.
The food was all packaged well and kept nice and warm. We used some of the boxes to store left overs and kept the brownies for the next day as it would have been too much otherwise. I also forgot to mention they sent us some complimentary pain au chocolate as well which kept beautifully fresh until the next day. You can definitely get carried away when looking at their menu so it’s good that some of the food was able to be kept for another meal. We didn’t waste anything!
We had this breakfast delivery during lockdown which was a wonderful and luxurious treat. Will definitely be treating ourselves to a breakfast delivery again. My husband was thrilled by this discovery! An Ealing cafe that delivers breakfast and good coffee – what a find! The kids have already suggested that it would make a wonderful birthday breakfast treat. For everyone in the family, including the dog and any guests we have staying!
Now lockdown is over, I would also like to go to eat in their cafe in person. It’s a great new addition to the range of cafes and breakfast options in Northfields and offers something different with the amount of choices and it’s international mix.
You can find out more about Easy Eats on their website: Easy Eats or via their Facebook page Easy eats | Facebook. and do follow their Instagram feed to see lots more photos of their mouth watering breakfast, brunch and lunch options.
Easy Eats is currently serving by takeaway or delivery only. The options for delivery are Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo. I think they are also developing an online ordering facility, direct from their website. The Northfields based cafe is open from 8am to 2pm every day.
Hey it’s been a tough year – why not treat yourself this weekend? Here’s one last picture to tempt you …
