Budget full English breakfast in Sydney
If you are an English ex-pat and miss a good old-fashioned traditional full English breakfast but resent having to fork out in the region of $20 a time at overpriced cafes, who try to give you the minimum possible items, then this place is one to make note of. Located close to Circular Quay train station and therefore not too far from the Sydney Opera House and the surrounding tourist area, Bread & Fill can be found in the Gateway centre on Alfred Street.

You must make sure you come between the hours of 7am and 11am to purchase from the breakfast menu.

The 'breakfast box' at $11.50 is probably the closest item on the menu to a traditional full English breakfast. It consists of 2 eggs, bacon (I got 4 rashers) sausage, tomato, mushrooms and toast (but no baked beans). Aesthetically, it is not quite as pleasing to the eye as some English breakfasts as the ingredients are plonked into a takeaway container box, rather than laid out on a plate, but this is likely to be only a very minor issue for most full English breakfast connoisseurs who will appreciate the substantialness and quality of the ingredients. You can even tag on a regular coffee to your breakfast at the reduced price of $2.50, saving yourself 80 cents on the standard price of $3.30. Prices represent value, especially in what tends to be a premium real estate area aimed at tourists.

The motto of the business is 'good food made slow served fast'.
Take a look at the Bread & Fill website for further information and details about specials.

If you happen to miss the 11am deadline for breakfast then you can choose from the lunch menu or try one of the many other lunch options in the Gateway centre. Note though that places tend to start shutting down around 3pm to 3:30pm, although you may find a couple of places with reduced items around this time as they try to sell the days final remaining stock. If you like sushi or cakes, this could be a good time to time your visit.

I'm looking forward to breakfast after reading your article Richard. By Melbourne standards $20-00 sounds almost cheap for a big breakfast, so your Bread and Fill venue sounds very good value.

glad to see no baked beans - not favoured here by 'stray lions

I loathe this stuff apparently enjoyed by devotees of the Full English Breakfast - to me it looks like vomit - or worse ...
