DATE OF VISIT Spring 2015
Aware that a new café had opened in place of “Xenophily”, which was here before Ella’s, we decided to pay a visit for Saturday breakfast. This seems to be a pleasant family run establishment, new to Ecclesall Road.
We had the place to ourselves, and so found a table no problem. While we deliberated on the menu, some fresh water was brought to the table, a nice touch.
Drinks are on the blackboard behind the counter, and there is a simple breakfast menu presented by the staff.
Coffees arrived after a very short wait, and were piping hot and strong in flavour, and lasted the duration of our visit.
We all chose poached egg-themed food (one with smoked salmon, the others with bacon). When these arrived we were not disappointed, beautifully presented, and clearly made with lovely fresh ingredients.
Our hosts were always on hand, and checked on our satisfaction, and kept us topped up with water as needed.
OTHER NOTES Pay at the end, clean and tidy, friendly staff, attentive service, pleasant background music, selection of the day’s newspapers available.
