English, American and Canadian breakfasts are all on the menu at this highly likeable café. You might have to queue, but your hangover will thank you for it
Placed on a corner a stone's throw away from the often overwhelmingly busy Market Street, Moose is a great spot to take refuge from the brutal shopping crowd, or indeed a stinking hangover. The menu is extensive and will probably give more indecisive folk a panic attack, but rest assured you can pick something with a blindfold on and rarely go wrong. The New York Moose is something of a celebrity; a classic eggs benedict served on a toasted bagel coupled with grilled parma ham. The Lone Star Moose might scare young children due to its size but will treat you well; it involves chipolata sausages and homemade potato hash, free range eggs and a griddled tomato.
Breakfasts are served until 2.30pm but don't fret if that’s too early a deadline, because sandwiches, salads and burgers are served all day. The Sugar Ray packs a terrific treble of salt beef, grilled bacon and corned beef served alongside Swiss cheese and mustard mayonnaise. Tea, coffee and juice is available but it's the food (including some excellent cakes) that keeps ‘em coming back.
The interior is modest with no more than 15 tables (which means occasional queues) but this just adds to the cosy atmosphere. The furnishings are somewhat beige but moose-themed prints and antler chandeliers add character.
