The breakfast blog begins. Breakfast is, as many experts proclaim ‘The most important meal of the day’. It can be most simple to the most extravagant. Nottingham stands proud of its many distinguished eateries catering for the many tastes. In the first of an ongoing series, we will endeavor to visit as many of the establishments in an effort to bring you the best places for a good brekkie! Cheeky alley cafes to quirk upstarts, many already have gained a reputation. Nottinghams early bird breakfast pleasers have some unique attributes.


Atmosphere and service Cu copper is warmly pleasant with a rustic charm. Wide open bar area with large displays of spirits and bottles from across the world. Draughts available. 2 lovely ladies greeted us as their first customers of the day. Upon being seated, we asked for their recommendations for a great breakfast. Eager to please for the traditional English. 3 pages of edible goodness in a quality booklet. Vegetarian options abound.

Quality of the food.
Under the Traditional English breakfast, was a subtle recommended option was Add Cu Copper potatoes. Why not push the boat out 🙂 aren’t we glad we did. Delicious! Crispy style chopped potatoes roast style, covered in a scattered of rock salt and cracked black pepper served up in a bowl. English Breakfast at Copper, no grease on this plate a straight thumbs up. Succulent locally sourced sausage unfortunately though the service member could not say where. Disappointing rashers of bacon far to fatty in this instance, not as well done as ones preference. Small amount of beans, large yummy mushrooms. Its a hit and a miss, miss only by a small margin.

A traditional breakfast will set your wallet back at Copper: An acceptable exchange of quality and value 6.95 with the highly recommended Copper potatoes 1.25. We came away with a bill totaling £22 for 2 of us which did include a 3 drinks (2 coffees and an orange juice)  a wonderfully full tummy and high expectations of visiting again.
