The British tradition continues - come and enjoy breakfast
Sitting alongside the all new Port Adelaide Loop Path was a large sign proclaiming Breakfast at The British. It doesn't take much to get me to try a new venue, especially at breakfast time, and this sign was enough for me on this particular occasion.

The British Hotel, just next to the Birkenhead Bridge in Port Adelaide was established in 1847. One of Port Adelaide's oldest hotels, The British has had a complete new fit out and is now one of the more modern hotels in the Western Suburbs with some great views of the Port River.

While the inside was looking all flash and fantastic, we elected to sit outside in the sun and to watch the world pass by. With a choice of outdoor seating alongside North Parade or opposite the Loop Path, there was plenty to view.

The breakfast menu is not extensive, but has most of the staples. I chose Eggs Benedict which duly arrived as a poached egg with English spinach, shaved ham and house hollandaise on a Turkish bread and alongside a lonely grilled tomato. I don't often have Eggs Benedict for breakfast as often the hollandaise sauce can be a bit of a hit or miss. Today it was a hit - smooth, creamy and with some consistency.

Scrambled eggs and bacon with some crusty ciabatta was the other choice for the day, and this was to be a rather large serve which is perhaps typical for pub food. Bacon can also be a tricky item to predict in terms of how well cooked it comes. This serve of bacon was browned, but not burnt and crispy, thus preserving one's teeth.

Our large coffees arrived in mid-size cups, and provided a welcome caffeine boost. While the coffee was not quite up to the same standard as one might expect in a barista bar in the City, there were certainly nothing to be ashamed about.

The British Hotel is open for breakfast from 830am to 3pm every Sunday and is a stone's throw away from the Wild at Hart Markets and the Fisherman's Wharf Markets.
