Other menu favourites include sandwiches, the all-day breakfast and porridge. And it gets better as handmade cakes and biscuits are available for any brunching must!

About: Sheffield manager Carrie McGrail opened Reserved Café Bistro in 2016.

Carrie said: “there all sorts here” and she’s not wrong. Full English breakfast, poached eggs and vegan options are all available. Carrie said: “Our bestselling is the breakfast bagels.”

On the weekends there is the special offer for the kids. Purchase a full adult breakfast and receive a free child’s breakfast. And family is the backdrop of this café as Carrie’s mum lovingly makes the granola, served with fresh fruit and yoghurt. Reserved café bistro aims to keep things fresh with the use of ingredients and the change of their menu every three months.

In 2018 they are also working closer with Sheffield Council on their campaign ‘sugar free Sheffield’. Although they do sell goodies such as their homemade cakes, they try to use different ingredients to cut down on the sugar intake. This includes their weekend frappes, a healthier but still delicious version of the ‘freak shake’.

They are also working with MasterChef quarter-finalist, Chris Hale, once a month to bring you some of the finest food. They serve a range of customers too, from young mums, to OAPs, and of course families. Situated perfectly with bi-folding doors looking onto Stannington Park, it is no wonder Reserved Café Bistro comes highly recommended.
