Breakfast at The BREWery – Sileby

This morning on a very rare and exciting day off together, Eliza and I decide to indulge in a bit of Breakfast at a lovely little café called The BREWery situated in Sileby, Leicestershire.

The BREWery is a family owned business and has a truly rustic and homely feel to it, with a vintage like interior and various weathered wooden shelves lining the first wall, full of various teas, cakes, and cutlery. Behind the wooden counter there is splendid arrays of chalkboard menu’s all with delicately hand-written food choices. As it was breakfast we decided to go all out- both requesting the beloved Eggs Benedict.

Eliza went neutral with her choice of drink and chose a green tea, while I went for the more extravagant and novel a banana milkshake, complete with a flurry of marshmallows, cream, and chocolate shavings.

We sat down on quite a traditionally set table, with vintage style seats. All around us there were solid armchairs or high stools and wooden crates fashioned into makeshift tables.

Our favourite thing in the café was the sign written in scrabble letters which read: “There’s no WIFI in here so you’ll have to talk”, Yes! Conversation is the best! No to being anti-social, which would be ironic if you’re in a café with someone reading this blog.

Now, on to the Benedict, Egg-xactly what I needed! When breakfast hits, you want an equally delicious, equally uplifting dish – trust me the BREWery’s egg’s benny is the one for you. The eggs sit proudly on top: flavoursome. The yolk drips down (not too runny!) The streaky “Stars and Stripes” style bacon has a nice tender touch. The muffin wasn’t soggy with a hint of crispiness and the chives were a high five on top! Oh, and the hollandaise sauce? Need I say more? Gorgeous.

But what really made it for me was the company. It isn’t often I get the chance to sit down with my beloved wife on a laid-back Saturday and tuck into some truly awesome breakfast. I’m usually pumping away at the Lady Astoria coffee machines, serving Mocha Italia, and watching weekenders enjoy their breakfast. So, thank you for the welcome and the good company The BREWery! We will be visiting again soon.

If you are ever in the neighbourhood we would highly recommend you give The BREWery a visit. The vibe is chilled, the food delicious and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Why not give The BREWery’s website a look?

Five stars from us!
