“A real little find on the tourist trail”
Review of Foxy Browns - CLOSED

I often stop off in Broadway, and Foxy Browns is right next to the Pay and Display Car Park - although they do have some limited parking of their own, which is free. I'm usually wary of tea shops in tourist towns right next to the main car park, because it's usually about location and convenience rather than quality, so I was pleasantly surprised by Foxy Browns.

It's not a full-blown restaurant - they do all day breakfasts, sandwiches, paninis and cakes - and the first time I went there, I ordered a scone and jam. For anyone not used to England, scones are a traditional English bread/cake cross, usually served with butter and jam (or in the West Country, clotted cream and jam). When freshly cooked, they're moist and lovely but go stale very quickly - most scones you find in cafes tend to be quite disappointing, but the ones here were perfect.

Since then, I've gone there a few times and had a late breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast. Some nice touches - it's nice bread (not just preprocessed sliced as far as I can see), the eggs are cooked just right, served with fresh chives and real butter, the tea comes in nice ceramic teapots (not the metal ones that end up pouring everywhere except in the cup), and there's a pepper mill with black pepper on every table.

The service is really friendly, and the prices very reasonable. From what I can tell, it's usually full of people who seem to know each other, so I suspect this is a haunt popular with the locals.

You can sit outside too - the view isn't that stunning (a car park), but as Broadway is supposedly the prettiest village in England (I can believe it), even the view of the car park isn't that bad!
