While we were in Padstow back in October, we spent a lot of time thinking about food, eating food and researching where to eat next. So, with that in mind, let me show you our rather spectacular breakfast!
We decided to go out for breakfast at Rojano’s, which is near the harbour front and tucked away down a side street. Rojano’s is a slightly fancy italian restaurant, owned by Paul Ainsworth, who has another two restaurants in Padstow – No’ 6 and Padstow Townhouse.
Dinner at Rojano’s is a favourite of ours – you simply have to try their garlic dough balls, they are out of this world – but I’d never been there for breakfast before. We opted for a bowl of yoghurt, fresh berries and granola to share (pictured above – yum).
I decided (after much deliberation) to go for smoked salmon and cream cheese on a crumpet, topped with a poached egg and with a side of bacon. Scrumptious! Both T and Dad opted for their version of a full english – which also looked delicious, but they dug in so quickly that there was no photo opportunity!
After breakfast, T and I mooched around the side streets, mainly looking at what was on offer in the various bakeries (all of which was very tempting!). Despite the chilly (and drizzly) October weather, we had an ice cream each – mint choc chip for me, my favourite – and spent the rest of the day exploring.
Beer! Personally, I don’t like it – at all – but T and Dad do, so we popped into a new shop in Padstow, called Padstow Brewing Co. Their brewery is based about 5 minutes outside of Padstow, and they have a huge range of beers, ales and ciders. The shop is very aesthetically pleasing, and is complete with some comfy chairs and a tasting corner!
T and Dad had a taste of the beer options – both thoroughly enjoying the process – while I enjoyed their cider, which was very nice indeed! The cider was called Padstow Sunshine Cider, and I would definitely recommend giving this a try if beer isn’t your thing, but you want to join in on the fun!
We left with a few (but not toooooo many) purchases, and spent the rest of the evening relaxing in the cottage before heading back out for dinner. A lovely long weekend in Padstow – and I’m looking forward to returning soon, hopefully!
