July 14, 2013 Breakfast, West End No Comments

In the continuing battle between the forces of sleep and train travel, I had another mad dash out of my abode to the station, this morning. With the usual leisurely bowl of bran flakes foregone, I was in need of food for the train journey, so called in to Lezzetli.

I’ve reviewed their other branch, on Dundas Street, previously, awarding it the coveted exceptional Soupquest status, so I was confident I’d be looked after well in this branch, on Haymarket Terrace.

My torrid affair with breakfast rolls shows no signs of concluding, despite my weak efforts. I eyed the Stoats porridge pots as the words “scrambled egg and bacon roll” left my mouth. One day…

With an accompanying espresso in hand, the cheery counter folks were soon bidding me adieu, as I vigorously ambled towards my westward ho train.

Once aboard, I unpacked my item, which due to it being a soft roll had been rather squashed in transit. It had a good amount of both egg and bacon on it.

The bacon was really good, with thick, back bacon neatly crisped at the edges. Much as the roll from Agoo 2, I really like bacon prepared in this way. The scrambled eggs were OK, but without the salty bacon accompaniment, I think they would have been a little bland, so perhaps a twist of pepper, or similarly peppy seasoning, may have helped.

So overall, I was really pleased with Lezzetli, once more. The place is friendly and welcoming, with the counter people keeping the constant queue ticking along with due rapidity. Their breakfast roll hit the spot, with the bacon particularly good. I’d be happy to suggest you pay them a visit, when next you’re in the vicinity.
