When I assume of a greasy spoon I assume of Dot Cotton sipping on a cup of tea on an off white chair at an off white desk with partitions that can only be described as yellow-ish.

My memories of viewing EastEnders are hazy but this looks about right.

Living in Rochester, my feeding on options are plentiful. Cafe Nucleus has been the scene for a classy birthday brunch even though Lorenzo’s has saved me from my hangover with their sandwiches.

Neither of these in shape the greasy spoon monthly bill, and you could be forgiven for contemplating Rochester is a further city with out one – many thanks to gentrification…

Nevertheless, if you make it to the finish of the Large Street and in direction of where the police station was, round the corner from Playopolis you can locate the closest detail on offer: the cafe, the myth, Legends.

But it’s a lengthy way from Ian Beale’s plastic paradise.

A current revamp has created the place come to feel much more modern-day. A quick appear on TripAdviser displays that the walls have been the off yellow of Kathy’s Cafe and the tables all joined jointly in a way that makes it instead awkward to slide into.

But now it has pretty dark picket chairs standing independently and the appear of brick wallpaper. I truly feel fewer greasy presently.

The decor is only a slight stage. Specifically when two breakfasts and two coffees come to just £13.40.

Why go to Costa when you can get a coffee for just £1.50 listed here? These are greasy spoon costs.

The enormous menu up on the wall was a tiny overwhelming. The anxiety of a queue constructing up at the rear of you can guide you to make the incorrect decision. You never want to get started a working day like that.

But the woman guiding the counter waited patiently and was really welcoming. Even when we bought bewildered about her really straightforward query about the bread…

The coffee before it burnt the roof of my mouth...

I went for the third set breakfast and a coffee. As did my sister.

Selection 1 has a controversial burger on supply. Viewpoints in the feedback…

We took a seat and it appeared in seconds. The coffee was in a good mug and scalding scorching – as the roof of my mouth found out.

A preposterous volume of bread quickly followed and then the breakfast.

I had my reservations on to start with sight: “Was that egg runny? That bacon could be crispier. How many beans?!”

But it tasted delightful.

The egg was runny, perfect for dipping, and didn’t have that included layer of oil around the edges.

The bacon was whole of flavour and the mountain of bread served mop up the beans.

It was a very simple, delicious breakfast that saved me likely for several hours.

As an individual who is normally mocked for getting chips on the side of her ketchup, I have to also give bonus details for the condiment choice. Bottles of ‘Heinz’ ketchup alternatively than bothersome minor sachets and a big sugar shaker. Bonus details from me.

Even though the food stuff was terrific. The price a dream. My favorite factor about this easy cafe was the environment.

There was a combine of outdated adult males savoring a tranquil breakfast, dads having the young children out for the early morning and ladies catching up on the last 7 days with mates.

Everybody that came in was greeted with huge smiles and everybody who still left obtained a thank you and a wave.

The team had been clearly happy to be performing there despite it remaining a depressing Saturday early morning.

The youthful woman supporting appeared fired up to have out her tiny responsibilities and took excellent treatment on the specials board.

So whilst you have the selections of fancy high-quality dining or a pint and a fry up at the chain pub down the street, I’d extremely suggest turning just off the Significant Avenue for a attractive food at Legends.
