Middlesbrough is quickly becoming the place to be when it comes to dining out. With the fast growth from neighbourly streets, Baker Street and Bedford Street, independent businesses are booming. Offering a combination of wonderful eateries and quaint shops, there’s no better place to visit whilst in the town. A place I’ve been wanting to try for a while is The Baker Street Kitchen which is located on the corner of Baker Street nearby centre square. After hearing rave reviews of their all day breakfast menu I knew I wanted to try the food for myself.
A couple of weeks ago me and my mam went to The Baker Street Kitchen for our lunch. We were surprised by the size of the cafe inside as we’ve never really been down that side of Baker Street before. Although busy for the lunch time rush, we were lucky to grab a table for two towards the back of the cafe. The decor was lovely and welcoming with lots of little bits and bobs to look at hung from the walls. Although we didn’t get one, there was plenty of homemade cakes and scones to pick from which looked delicious and well-portioned.
My mam ordered a tomato omlette which was served with some bloomer bread, salad and a bit of butter which she really enjoyed. I ordered a chicken, chorizo, mozzarella and pesto melt which was served cleverly on an open panini making it look a little bit like a pizza. I loved this, it was so fresh and tasty. With the distinctive taste of chorizo and plenty of melted cheese, it was a gorgeous lunch time treat that wasn’t too filling.
Next time I want to try the Nutella pancakes for breakfast, maybe followed by a slice of homemade cake? I may have to visit multiple times just to sample the rest of the tempting menu. Although more expensive than your traditional cafe in Middlesbrough town, the fresh produce and inviting atmosphere is definitely worth paying a few extra pounds.
