I frequently enjoy and I mean ENJOY the 'Big Breakfast' at the Sainsburys Cafe in Portswood (for breakfast this is the BEST cafe around), but today, due to domestic commitments I was too late for breakfast and opted for the 'Mega Brunch' from the lunch menu instead. Such a disappointment. While the fried eggs, sausages and beans were all the same as the breakfast, the mushroom was a watery and flavourless affair, and the chips certainly sub-standard. This is so sad, I know its the same staff cooking, and one can only assume that either they don't know how to cook chips (plausible) or that the packet chipped potatoes they use are of poor quality (equally plausible).
If you fancy lunch, go else where, or just stick to a coffee and a cake (both of which are great, I adore their latte and my teenage daughter raves about the milkshakes). If Mr Sainsbury is reading this (not very plausible), then PLEASE do something about your 'main meals' served after 11:30, as they detract from what is otherwise a great cafe.
