Liverpool's Tavern Co restaurant wins UK's best breakfast award

A Liverpool "Mexican barbecue" restaurant's full English has been named the UK's best breakfast in the first Farmhouse Breakfast Awards.

Tavern Co restaurant in Liverpool was named the place to eat the country's best breakfast after it secured the highest number of public votes. The restaurant's full English also won the best hot breakfast award.

The Farmhouse Breakfast Awards - part of the 15th annual Farmhouse Breakfast Week - is open to cafés, restaurants, canteens, B&Bs, food vans, pubs and hotels and nominees are then put to a public vote via the campaign website

The winning dish includes two handmade Lincolnshire sausages, back bacon, a fried egg, peppered tomato, black pudding, sautéed mushrooms, baked beans and toast from locally-baked bread.

The best cold breakfast award went to Café Alf Resco in Dartmouth, Devon, for their Alf's granola, which contains jumbo oats, nuts, seeds, local honey and yoghurt.

The Tried & True café in London's Putney took the most innovative breakfast award for its BBQ pulled pork Benedict: a jalapeno and cheddar cornbread filled with pulled pork in a homemade smoky barbecue sauce, plus poached eggs, chilli butter and spring onions.

All three venues will be visited by Farmhouse Breakfast Week organisers HGCA (the cereals and oilseeds division of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, AHDB). Tavern Co will also receive a visit from TV chef Dean Edwards, who is supporting the campaign.

Breakfasts were judged according to the hot/cold/innovative categories as well as within their own establishment type category.

Karen Levy, marketing executive from HGCA, the organiser of the Best Breakfast Awards said: "We would like to congratulate all the winners. We had thousands of votes for the hundreds of dishes that were entered into the awards as customers showed their support for their local venue."
