Format: Hardcover
Which is a good thing. I gave it to one of my mates who, like me, loves a cafe breakfast. This is wry, affectionate, beautifully judged writing. Worth it alone for the Dorling & Kindersley-esque graphic detailing the different species of chip. Like its subject, pure pleasure.
He doesn't deal with critical issues such as the order of consumption, the role of toast, and the pivotal moment of when to pierce the yolk (and with fork or chip?). But I guess that's for volume 2. Delightful.

Greasy spoons. Fry-ups. Pictures of amusing condiments. This book has everything. Davies isn't going to trouble the Booker Prize judges but that's not his point. This is a funny, easy-to-read, lots-of-pictures celebration of the Great British cafe.

If you like cafes, things quintessentially British, and a good read, you won't do better than this book. It is so passionately written that you can't help but love the author. That he is a dedicated cafe fan comes through both in the humour of the writing and in page after page of delicious photographs. I can't imagine how dreary a person would have to be not to find something to relish in this little book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Only in Britain would we buy a book like this. We know it's not haute cuisine. We know that it's not good for us. We don't care. Everybody who has been touched by the cheery atmosphere and flavours of the local greasy spoon will love this book. It's obvious from the text that the author loves his subject. God Bless the Queen!
