During our holiday in Cornwall we ate some seriously delicious food – The Seafood Restaurant, Paul Ainsworth at No.6 and Nathan Outlaw at Rock all provided us with unforgettable meals. The only disappointment during our trip was the dodgy breakfast from the hotel at which we were staying. After a rather worryingly pink centred sausage and a gloopy looking fried egg we decided to treat ourselves to breakfast at Jamie Oliver’s 15 on our last day.
Making a reservation online was possibly the most complicated and long winded process I have ever experienced in my life. That was nothing though in comparison to the ticket machines in the car park – it would take an expert to master those things first time! Putting the stress behind us we walked into the restaurant and were blown away by the location.
Its address doesn’t lie; On The Beach, Watergate Bay. It literally is slap bang on the beach with a totally stunning sea view. Even better was that on our visit it was glorious sunshine – I was very much in heaven!
Breakfast is served from 8:30-9:30am. We started with a freshly squeezed orange juice and the smoothie of the day which was blueberry and apple (£3.50 each). Both were refreshing and the perfect way to liven up our sleepy taste buds.
We both decided to go for the Fifteen fry up (£10.50) which featured two fried legbar eggs, olde Cornish sausages, grilled field mushroom, spicy beans, Warren’s Butchery smoky back bacon and Da Bara Bakery toast. I decided to substitute my spicy beans (as beans are totally gross right?) for another sausage which was kindly done at no extra charge – not bad eh! Now it’s not cheap, but it really was a delicious breakfast – one of the best I’ve ever had. The quality of all the ingredients was second to none making it worth every single penny. After a good squirt of ketchup it really was faultless.
We really loved our trip to Jamie Oliver’s 15 – service was bubbly and lively which is always nice and if their breakfast is anything to go by then I imagine the food from the rest of the menu is bloomin’ lovely too. If you’re in the area then it’s well worth the trip simply for the view alone!
