The Piano in Radcliffe on Trent is a super little café to pick up a spot of lunch or even brunch during the week. Located right on the main street running through the town it has become a bit of a local fixture over the last 7 or so years. They say that they serve up authentic Italian fare, and they also serve up many of your lunch and brunch classics too, something for almost everyone.
It was a bit of a drive away from the office, but Alison ‘My partner in Crime for this MyFoodHunt’ and I decided it was worth taking a little extended break and an escape into the country for our lunch. Some days you just have to!
I had my eye on Breakfast and Alison had her eyes on Brunch… a win-win situation then hopefully
So what did we eat?
All Day Breakfast
I selected Breakfast No. 1 which was described on the Piano menu as “2 pieces of bacon, fried egg, baked beans, tomatoes or mushrooms, 2 slices of toast & butter, tea or coffee” for £5.90
This sounded like a right bargain, breakfast and a pot of tea for under £6! I chose mushrooms over tomatoes and tea over coffee. The hot drink arrived quickly and I was happy to see a pot that I could squeeze at least 2 cups out of.
The actual breakfast was a enjoyable affair, fried and crispy slices of bacon always make me happy, a fried egg with a nice runny yolk added more delight to my plate.
The mushroom were tasty and although they did not look visually too enticing they were good enough for me.
I had a couple of slices of toast that I used one to make beans on toast, the other for egg on toast. It always works for me when I do that.
Sometimes you get a little pot of jam so that you can have a breakfast desert after your savoury egg and bacon, no such luck today though 🙂
I was very happy with this bit of basic breakfast fare, it ‘hit the spot’ and kept me going for the rest of the day!
I was glad that I didn’t make the jump up the price point to get Breakfast No.2 which was the same plus sausage, chips, and an orange juice for just £7.40.
I don’t think I could have eaten all of that!
Alison went for one of the ‘slightly’ vegetarian options picking the Eggs Florentine. This was described on the menu as “Poached egg & spinach served on toasted ciabatta with Hollandaise sauce” and was also looking good value priced up at £5.90
I liked that you got two properly cooked poached eggs and just a dollop of hollandaise sauce on top, that sauce is nice in this dish when there is not too much smothering the stack.
I understand that the ciabatta was well toasted and a pretty good vehicle to hold that spinach and egg combo. I myself like an English Muffin in this dish (TBH I like the versions with salmon or ham 🙂 .
It all was very well received and there was no food left on either plate!
The Breakfast Menu
I quite like eating at The Piano, I have been in before and tried out their Croque Madam, a Club Sandwich, and some of their Homemade Lasagna
They were all good!
If you were wondering, yes they do have a Piano inside!
