Unhealthy greasy cafe option!!
OK, here's a question: What's the best cafe OM'ers have been to for a damn good pre hike breakfast?
The bakers in Hathersage in the Peaks does it for me. XXL size bacon oven bottom (trans: giant cob/bap/roll). Cannot be beaten!!! Size of a steering wheel, about ten rashers and keeps you going all day.
The Baker's at Hathersage should be legendary, or shut down for the good of my arteries...
However, the cafe/shelter/shop/safety system in Horton-in-Ribblesdale has the emotional vote... They even do a healthy and a veggie option...
The Good Life Cafe in Mammoth Mountain....
....the fried fish and poached eggs are the biz....bit of chili...some salsa...fresh cornbread...
There's a pub on Skye that serves Guinness with a fry-up first thing in the morning on a Sunday.
The Big Rock Cafe in Pothmadog gets my vote.
Hey Mick, what's the name of the pub in Skye? I'm up there over easter so may give it a try.
Sig's are a waste of bandwidth...

I can't remember the name of it Ian, but it was in Broadford. We were on the way home after a mad weekend in the Cuillins, and saw a sign saying 'open for breakfast'. A greedy person in the company asked if there was any chance of a drink. Mine host replied that it was illegal to serve drink that early. With a wink! Not many places where you can get a Guinness with your bacon 'n eggs early in the morning!
Damm! Only Sunday? I'll be off the island the second sunday up there on my trip. The first sunday I'll be setting off on my stroll down the island with a lightish sack on my back filled with new, light stuff I'm still expecting to arrive soon.
Now if you know of anywhere on Skye for the Saturday morning feed up afterwards or even the Friday night feed up after finishing the walking. Perhaps somewhere on the way back northwards from the southern tip heading up to that town on the eastern side (foget its name).
I still like the van at Ribblehead. If you have arrived their early for a nice long walk in that area it is a welcome sight to see the guy drive up and set up. It is worth the ten minute wait while he gets everything fired up. Might not be the best or the biggest of portions but the tea is wet an' warm plus the bacon is tasty. Eggs are just the right side of done too.
It is really annoying me but I found a really good place in the Lakes. I just cannot remember where or what it is called. I can almost taste it now. They do say taste and smell is more evocative than sight or sound. Smells often bring back memories that sight can not. I guess I must go around all the cafe in the LAkes till I find it again. What a burden I have. It could be fellbites in Glennridding main carpark.
Wilfs has changed over the years IMHO. I'm undecided about it these days.
There's a little place in Keswick, Strawberry something. I quite like that one. Of course if you have money then Abrahams at the top of Fishers gear shop is good.
Hot Tram Roll van in the main Keswick car park is very good.
The roadside van on the A591 from the M6 into Ambleside - i think it's near Stavely - uses local produce and it cooked to order. Handy if you not got time for a sit-down brekky.
Meelmore Lodge, The Mournes....smashing Ulster Fry especially on a Sunday morning after a full weekend dandering about
Cafe next to petrol station just before you turn right onto Head Rd. heading into Mournes, along main Newcastle. Killkeel rd.
Haven't been that way for a while so hope it's still open!! Grub was exellent and portions where huge last time I was there.

Bernie's Cafe in Ingleton. You can pretty much get a full english served in a huge Yorkshire pudding.
How does it square up to Inglesports next door?
And I'm shocked at how far this thread has got with no reference to Pete's Eats.
