Do you eat breakfast? A recent survey reported that one in five of us skip breakfast. I like to try and have a mindful breakfast when I can but some mornings I admit to rushing out the door. Sometimes I don’t feel hungry first thing so like to tune into my body and what it needs. If I have a speaking gig or important event I always make sure I eat something.
Today is #BetterBreakfastDay, created to remind us why it’s so important to start the day off with a nutritious breakfast.
The team from Vittoria on the Bridge in Edinburgh will celebrate throughout the week as they launch their new breakfast menu at the popular family friendly restaurant on George IV Bridges.
It was a real treat to check it out today. Delicious food on the new menu includes WARMED WAFFLES – choice of: Nutella, whipped cream and strawberries / Banana, dulce de leche, whipped cream and blueberries / Mixed berry compote, whipped cream drizzled with honey; GREEK YOGHURT AND MIXED FRUIT COMPOTE – Topped with apple and raspberry muesli; STOATS PORRIDGE – Choice of flavours served with steamed milk : Original / Golden Syrup / Apple & Cinnamon / Raspberry & Honey; WARMED PANCAKES – choice of: Nutella, whipped cream and strawberries / Banana, dulce de leche, whipped cream and blueberries / Mixed berry compote, whipped cream drizzled with honey and a selection of MINI PASTRIES – Choice of: Plain Croissant / Almond Croissant / Pain au Chocolate / Pain au Raisin / Danish Grape / Danish Apricot / Danish Pear.
Breakfast items on the menu start from as little as £1.50 and are available Monday – Friday : 8am – 11.30am • Sat & Sun : 10am – noon. The restaurant also offer a wide selection of hot and cold drinks to sit in or takeaway.
General Manager Alberto Crolla said:
“Launching breakfast in our Vittoria on the Bridge restaurants provides incredible growth opportunities for our family business. We believe we have the right offerings in place, and hope our breakfast menu sets us apart from the competition.”
Studies have shown that eating breakfast is associated with higher quality diets and higher intake of nutrients and desirable food groups. Eating a well-balanced nutritious breakfast gives you that boost of energy, so you have stamina throughout the day to get things done.
Alberto continues to say:
“An important component to proper daily nutrition is breakfast and our menu offers something for everyone – our healthy breakfast options are capable of setting the tone of the day or you can indulge your sweet tooth with lower sugar pastries or muffins.”
Vittoria on the Bridge is open daily at 19 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1EN
It’s a great spot in Edinburgh to check out and unwind. I love the new decorations and do you know that it’s dog friendly? Well behaved dogs of course.
