My growing consumption of breakfast rolls is getting a little out of hand, so I feel restorative action may need to be taken, soon. Once I have the “triple aim” of the 100km walk, the Espresso 100, and the Lunchquest 2013 Guide all completed, the next project should perhaps be “Porridge Quest”, where I will finally attempt to thoroughly convince myself that porridge is tasty.

For now, the bacon butty joy continued at Café Citron, in Blackhall.

The interior of the place treads a fine line between having been perfectly “antiqued” to give it a laidback feel, or just about being ready for a new lick of paint. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. Certainly, it’s bright and tidy, with a good mix of seats, with a particularly comfy looking sofa sitting alongside some more standard tables and chairs.

With my order for a bacon and brown sauce roll and espresso placed, I took a window seat and waited for things to arrive. They did, in no time at all, with both elements looking good.

Lifting the lid on the roll revealed an extremely generous amount of bacon. It looked good and crispy, too. It proved to be a little on the salty side, even for this salty treat, but it was still a damn tasty effort. I munched it with considerable relish.

So overall, I was pleased with Café Citron. The counter woman kept things ticking along efficiently, and it was particularly telling to see so many regular customers calling in for supplies, even during my relatively short stay. I’d be pleased to return, next time I’m out this way, and would be happy to suggest that you visit, too.
