Big up to the Torino for keeping prices down, food tasty and the smiles coming for free - Hayley Matthews
During the summer holidays I've loved taking the boys out for breakfast but my hunt for a good local cafe where the locals are making the food has been a challenge. We've not gone away this year again, so getting out for the occasional breakfast gives us a little holiday feel.
It also means less mess, we're out of the house early and there's no time for electronics. On my breakfast ventures I've taken them to Morrisons, Wetherspoons, Greggs - you know, all the fancy spots that we can get to fairly quickly before they get too "hangry." However, I much prefer local than going to big chains and I always try to keep the local economy going in troubled times. So when a friend messaged me wanting to meet for breakfast at her new local, I happily accepted.
You might be familiar with this place - The Torino bar and cafe that sits on the corner of Restalrig Road. Well, wow! I love the name of the cafe and also how great value it is in a time when prices are sky rocketing.
If you're in the Restalrig area and happen to venture out for a breakfast roll at The Torino, ask for the lovely Kerry and tell her I sent you. She'll make sure you get some extra tasty black pudding on an extra fluffy white roll and a steaming hot coffee for a reasonable price. You'll also get a smile for keeping your breakfast local - for free!
