Breakfast on the Beach

[Edit] 23/03/22
More changes unfortunately. Billy’s is no longer the Surfers Cafe it was. It had a lick of paint during the Covid lockdown and it is now a looking a lot sleeker. Another chic seafood cafe. No longer that different and no Surfers Breakfast.

Different is something I have been looking for ever since Charlie Harper’s changed their menu, doing away with their Brunch Hash special.

Billys on the Beach East Wittering Chichester Harbour

A search which took me down to East Wittering for a breakfast at  Billys on the Beach.  I can’t remember when I last ordered kippers for an early morning breakfast and soon discovered that I have forgotten how to peel it away from the bones .

But I managed.

Surfers breakfast at Billys on the Beach East Wittering

Keeping to different was the Surfers Breakfast which was a tomato, pepper base with cheese and I seem to remember chourizo. This topped with two fried eggs with chunks of bread.

It was different and Billy’s on the Beach is just one of a number of interesting restaurants and cafes to be found in East Wittering. Suspect it has got everything to do with there is a surfing community making it worth another look.

Christmas ham

Not really snow but close enough. I drove up to Midhurst after a heavy frost as the sun rose, to pick up our Christmas ham from Michael Courtney Family Butchers.

A magic time of day with the heater going full blast. Parking no problem, very little traffic besides one idiot in his SUV sitting on my tail through West Dean, Singleton and Cocking.

Woodies

 

A well cooked, as opposed to a well done steak is difficult to find. However the steak I was served at Woodies is worth going back to for another look see.

Nothing particularly special about it.

Steak restaurants in Chichester

Other than it being well seasoned, well cooked and well prepared. And besides the tomato, perched proudly over the accompanying mushroom. Suspect it had something to do with it being infused with Gin or possibly Vodka.

The Apple Cheesecake Crumble which followed was as good, if not better than my well prepared steak. A most enjoyable meal.

First impressions

Both the bus depot and railway station are conveniently situated at the bottom of South Road. From where it is a short uphill walk to Chichesters Market Cross and the city centre.

Chichester city centre West Sussex

Offering one the opportunity to sit and relax whilst deciding whether to explore the shops, cafes and restaurants on North, East or West Roads.

It couldn’t be simpler.

A Sweet Tooth

If you also have a sweet tooth.

Tea rooms in Chichester Vintage tearoom

Keep an eye on the Exclusive Cake Shop & Vintage Tearoom. From time to time they offer Koeksisters or Koeksusters as they are known in South Africa. They are a traditional Cape Malay confectionery made of fried dough infused in syrup or honey. Koeksisters are prepared by frying plaited dough strips in oil, then submersing the hot fried dough into ice cold sugar syrup. They have a golden crunchy crust and liquid syrup centre, are very sticky and sweet, and taste like honey.

The Vintage Tearoom is both gluten free and vegan friendly offering a comprehensive range of cakes, confectionery and speciality teas.
