I'm always on the hunt for a good place to brunch here in Sheffield; although we have some great eateries around the city very few have hit the spot for me when it comes to a good mid morning treat.
So, when I received an invite to go and sample the new brunch menu at Craft and Dough on Ecclesall Road I was excited to see what they had to offer.
Craft and Dough is just down the road from us so we popped in last Monday morning for a nice treat on Johno's day off.
The new brunch menu is served between 10am-1pm Monday- Friday at the Ecclesall Road branch and only at weekends at the Kelham Island branch.
Once settled at our table we ordered some drinks to start with; Johno went for the ever so healthy pint of coke and I opted for a decaffeinated latte and an orange juice.
We then browsed through the brunch menu (you can see it here) and also checked out the specials board which included:
Avocado on toast- avocado, slow roasted piccolo tomatoes, pesto, goats curd and poached hens eggs served on fresh Craft and Dough focaccia- £5.50
Mushroom on toast- seasonal field mushrooms cooked in Bèchamel served on fresh C+D focaccia -£5
Pancakes- served with lemon curd mascarpone with passion fruit coulis- £5
Breakfast Pannacotta- live yogurt Pannacotta, berry and basil puree, berries and sweet granola- £5
Pig Ben- Fresh C+D focaccia, pulled pork, bacon, hens eggs £5.50
Extras all £1- bacon, avocado, poached eggs, pork cuts.
The main brunch menu also offers full cooked breakfasts and breakfast sarnies.
I opted for the Crafty Breakfast-yorkshire sausages, streaky bacon, poached eggs, roasted plum tomato, field mushrooms, fried potatoes and homemade beans (all for £6.50).
My fave part of the breakfast was the flavourful Yorkshire sausage and the baked on site thick bread.
I was a little piggy and also went for the granola breakfast too, all in the name of blog research though as I know some people aren't into cooked brekkies and would go for this option so of course I had to try it out!
The granola breakfast is natural yogurt, hedgerow berries, granola and Yorkshire honey for £3.95- very yummy indeed; the tartness of the berries works well with the smooth natural yogurt.
Johno went for the Pig Ben (£5.50)...
Homemade bread topped with pulled pork, eggs and crispy bacon. Good original combination of flavours that worked very well together; the pulled pork worked well with the crispy bacon and smooth large poached eggs.
Overall we both felt the breakfasts were very impressive; full of flavour, good quality meat and eggs,well presented and very good value for money. Next time we go (which is probably going to be this weekend!) I want to try out the mushrooms on toast and the buttermilk pancake stack.
