Breakfast in Bo’ness at NOSH Cafe

Popular Cafe in Bo’ness

We decided to not book breakfast at our hotel (The Richmond Park Hotel) so that we could try out some of the cafes in Bo’ness.  NOSH  caught our eye the day before due to the sign in the window for their gentleman’s afternoon tea – complete with pakora!

We hadn’t booked afternoon tea, that’s a possible future trip, but breakfast beckoned, so in we went!

Breakfast in Bo’ness

Once Mark heard that the soup of the day was lentil, it was ordered, it is now soup season after all.  Alongside a cheese savoury roll, I’m sure he has empty legs that need regular filling with food!

Thick and flavoursome lentil soup, a good portion size as well.  The cheese savoury had an excellent crunch with the addition of bell peppers into the mix.

I picked a roll with bacon and potato scone.   Thankfully this wasn’t The Horn level of bacon roll, so that we could have space after for a visit to McMoos.  A traditional soft Scottish morning roll with just the right amount of bacon atop the potato scone.

There is a wide selection of fillings for sandwiches  as well as different bread options available.  We noticed a steady stream of locals coming in to get soup and sandwiches to go.

Soup-erb! I know I’ll get my coat.  Friendly service, tasty food and properly sized tea servings. If you are looking for breakfast in Bo’ness, this is somewhere to go.  The cakes looked good as well, but we had already decided to visit McMoos to see what they had on offer whilst we were in Bo’ness.
