Breakfast at Snax in the City

Snax in the City is a small cafe and cob shop on Derby Road just about 5 minutes walk up the hill from the Maid Marian Island and next door to Tough Mary’s Bakehouse.

I have had my eye on this place for a while for possible breakfast opportunities but until recently I have been unable to be in town early enough in the morning mid week to try them.

Until now!

At the moment I have a shared workspace nearby so I happily was able to pop in before work to grab some much needed greasy spoon action to help kickstart my day 😎


Menu wise it was a pretty simple set of choices between a cooked Full English for £6 or some sort of Breakfast Cob from £2.90.

Initially I contemplated a cob thinking I would get sausage, bacon and egg which would have been £3.90 with the add-ons.

I had some time on my hands and there was a table free so I ordered the Full English2 Sausage, 2 Bacon, Egg, Beans, Tomatoes & 2 Toast” and took my place in the window table with hopeful anticipation


Somewhat pleasingly I saw that I had two eggs, total bonus as I was only expecting one.

The bacon was hidden from view behind one of the eggs it was that really thin bacon, tasty enough but not that photogenic.

A further glance at the plate and you may think I had 4 sausages but no I just had two sliced in the middle presumably to assist with a quick cook on the flat plate grill.

I had declined the opportunity for tomatoes as I guessed they were probably going to be tinned ones and I just can’t handle those first thing in the morning.

To make up for that I seemed to have double beans divided equally to each side of the plate!

The haters are really going to hate this plate, but I really liked it! It was all kinds of wrong and right at the same time.

I love a breakfast scoff and I like it down and durty, don’t get me wrong gourmet can be good but you are not getting it at these prices and no-one is looking for fancy when they come to a classic British cafe!


Snax in the City are located at 64 Derby Road, Nottingham, NG1 5FD

Its fairly small inside with a few tables and window seats, it felt cosy and the staff were friendly enough.

I enjoyed listening to them debate the merits of a cottage pie that they had just cooked and was going to be a special. It was like masterchef judging for normal people.

I’ll be back for sure 😎
