A good breakfast spot is always a satisfying thing to stumble upon, isn’t it? That’s precisely what we found, just off of Winchester High Street and the perfect cosy spot for breakfast with friends. Forte Kitchen is a wonderful combination of home cooked food, beautiful decor and excellent coffee – everything you need for a good brekkie.

Forte Kitchen is run by Naomi and Olly, and their intention was to create a cosy, relaxed restaurant where guests can feel at home and enjoy proper rustic British food. I’d say they’ve done a pretty good job achieving this, with their simple but tempting menu, great selection of drinks and quaint, but not cramped seating area. Can you tell I really liked it there?
I opted for smoked salmon & scrambled eggs on sourdough, as did Tom – and it was an excellent choice. We went with our friends Bex (find her blog here) and Henry for a day out in Winchester. Bex chose Eggs Benedict and Henry opted for bacon & maple syrup pancakes. Delicious!
All washed down with cappuccinos, orange juice and tea. Perfect.
If you’re planning on heading to Forte Kitchen for breakfast, I’d recommend arriving when they open their doors at 9am (on the weekend) as the restaurant fills up very quickly, and they don’t take bookings for breakfast. Grab your companion and make a day of it in Winchester – there’s lots of great places to explore and things to do!
If you do visit, let me know what you ordered! Everything looked so delicious…
