The Morning After The Night Before (Food) May 9, 2012

Let’s be honest, most of the week you’re going to be getting drunk and waking up with a hangover. What you want when waking up is a big hearty breakfast if you’re a bloke or maybe a continental breakfast to clear the head if you’re a lady. I could be wrong, whatever takes your pick.

Sports Cafe

Although you won’t be coming here for the high quality of food it will definitely do the job after a night out. Saying that the food isn’t bad at all, I enjoy eating here, but if you’re looking for high quality tasty food I’s probably not the place.

They have a full English Breakfast, burgers, lasagne’s, curries, chips and steaks. Perfect for the day after the night before. I recommend Sports Cafe because their portions are big and you can also heal your hangover with the hair of the dog early the next day.  They also play all the live sport so it is the perfect place to come and build up to your next night.

The burgers are a personal favourite of mine and I would recommend the chicken burger. It comes crispy, with fresh tomato, lettuce and you can pay a little extra for cheese and bacon on top. The prices aren’t particularly cheap compared to places outside of Center Parcs but compared to the other places within it is the cheapest you will get. Meals will set you back around £8 with a pint costing £3.60.

Cafe Rouge

This is perfect for the women after a night out.  You can order the continental breakfast which has a selection of muffins, meats and cheeses. If that isn’t for you then the full English is a little different to the traditional. It doesn’t have beans or chips or black pudding but grilled vegetables and potatoes.

The setting is quiet and tranquil so perfect for a head that is spinning. There are a wide selection of drinks including a variety of unusual tea’s. This is for the little more sophisticated taste and the portions are much smaller than Sports Cafe.

However the whole atmosphere is different and is much quieter and laidback whereas sports cafe will be buzzing for the days sporting events.

Grand Cafe

This is the best breakfast on the site. The full English has everything you want, all the trimmings and extra’s if you want them. The portion is even bigger than Sports Cafe but there is no alcohol or sports played in here. Again there is a continental option and a wide variety of tea’s.

This is the best location of the three as it is right in the middle of the village square. On the other hand Sports Cafe is down by the Jardin Des Sports and Cafe Rouge is in the Plaza. The prices are again similar to the other two and it would definitely be my choice before heading down to the Sports Cafe for a few beers.
