Kith & Kin, Whitley Bay - Breakfast Menu Review


When I have a rare day off work me and Mrs. Cool like to go out for breakfast or lunch. This week we headed to Whitley Bay for breakfast to try Kith & Kin, a restaurant Mrs. Cool found on Instagram. Located right on the corner of Park View and Holly Avenue, don't make the mistake we did and walk past it. There is a little outdoor area for some al fresco dining but the day we went it was a little chilly so we found a table inside. The decor is a stripped back, modern hipster, instagramable interior.


One of Mrs. Cool's favourite breakfasts is French toast and she was eager to try something other than bacon and maple syrup with it so went for the Blueberry and Lemon Curd French toast. The portion was a decent size and the French toast is made from Sourdough, . The lemon and blueberries were really well balanced with the yoghurt which stopped the dish being overly sweet. It was also presented really well and you can tell that a lot of care and effort is put into it.


I've said many times that a breakfast without eggs is no breakfast at all. Kith & Kin have a plethora of egg dishes to choose from. I went for the Shakshuka which is baked eggs in a spicy and smokey tomato sauce with crumbled feta and minted yoghurt. It reminded me of Huevos Rancheros but with more North African/Persian feel. I decided to add some chorizo with mine which was £2.50 more but it was worth it. The chorizo (along with most of the meat on the menu) is from Nicholson's, a local butcher. I love that they have this relationship with another local independent business. My breakfast looked like a big portion when it came but it was the perfect size and I was satisfied but not too full when I was finished. 


We also had a coffee each, which were also great (I can't be doing with rubbish coffee) and our bill came to £25. It was a bit more than we would normally pay for breakfast but it was worth it as the menu offers something different than most places. It was also nice to see the restaurant is dog friendly which is perfect after a walk along the beach.

Well, that's all for now

  1. HOW HAVE I STILL NOT BEEN! I'm so angry at myself I'm typing in caps! I've been wanting to go for so so long! We're heading to the coast next weekend so perhaps we'll finally make it!
