The Bubble Room is a bar-cafe on the high street in Alderley Edge, a little village in the Cheshire countryside, about 20 miles from Manchester. I’ve never been to the Bubble Room in the evening (when it morphs into an up-market bar), but for breakfast on a weekend, it’s worth a visit and when I am in the area (visiting relatives), I always drop by.
The breakfast/brunch menu is short, but to the point, with firm favourites that won’t disappoint. Choose between a full English (including a veggie version), eggs benedict, bagel with smoked salmon and eggs (cooked to your liking), croque monsiuer or croque madame. You can also customise your breakfast with a selection of sides for £1 extra.
On our visit we had the eggs benedict and the bagel with smoked salmon and two perfectly poached eggs, together with a side of field mushrooms. Presentation was good and I can’t fault the cooking of the eggs. The only criticism we had was that the hollandaise sauce was rather on the thin side. That aside, the food ticked all the boxes and hit the spot.
Overall, the Bubble Room is an excellent local choice for breakfast/brunch – there is a good selection of the day’s papers, friendly service (without being over-bearing) and comfy armchairs to sink into and no-one hassles you out. Prices are relatively good too – breakfast for two with coffees came in at £19.
Breakfast/brunch is served 10am till 2pm on weekends.
