Review: Cafe Strange Brew

I'm a bit in love with this cafe already, after just one (quick) visit. I needed lunch but didn't have much time, so just popped in for a takeaway sandwich and soup.
There's quite a bit of seating actually - probably space for between 15-20 people and they've made good use of the space so it doesn't seem crammed. But this time I was taking away so just ordered at the counter. The takeout menu has rolls, french toast, cooked breakfasts, sandwiches, soup, macaroni and of course drinks and cakes. If you're eating in, there's also bread & dips and egg dishes available.
I really need to comment on just how cheap their full breakfast options are - I'm used to paying between £7-£10 for a full breakfast but here you can get a full cooked breakfast for £5.75 (medium size) or big for £7.50, and only £5 for a veggie breakfast. Bargain. I'll be back for the breakfast this weekend so will update about that once I try it.
I got a roast chicken sandwich and cup of potato soup to takeaway. Everything is freshly made and as I said above, prices are very reasonable. I resisted the temptation for cake but there was a lovely selection of brownies, sponge, scones as well as a couple of vegan options.
The sandwich was awesome - a good amount of chicken, nice mayo and mustard tang and some spinach leaves in there too. A very filling lunch - so much so that I ended up saving the soup and having that for dinner! Potato & cumin flavour which was just delicious and didn't need any seasoning.
If you're after a hot drink they do Dear Green coffee and Tea Pigs tea - winning combination! As I said, I'm a bit in love already so I'm sure I'll be back very soon!
