IN our quest to find the best breakfast in Salisbury, we visited the ever-popular Jenny's Bistro Cafe, and this is what we thought.

Recently, Journal reporter Jordan Elkins' reviewed the newly reopened Bird and Carter's cafe, boldly declaring it serves "the best breakfast near Salisbury."

As a self-proclaimed breakfast enthusiast, I wanted to challenge his claim, my contender being Jenny's Bistro Cafe.

I visited Jenny's at around 10:30am on Monday, February 26 alongside the Journal's head of news, Benjamin Paessler.

Located in Market Walk, Jenny's is a long-standing cafe which expanded in November last year.

Offering views of the River Avon, the cafe is well-lit and rather spacious. Upon entry, we were invited to choose our seats, and opted for a booth near the counter, as all of the window seats were occupied - which, to be fair, was to be expected.

Browsing the menu, it didn't take me long to come to a decision. Controversially, and to the disgust of Mr Paessler, I am not a fan of hash browns, so I opted for the traditional English breakfast which consists of two sausages, bacon, an egg, mushrooms, baked beans and a slice of toast cut in two.

Ben chose the 'Mrs Pudding', which consists of a sausage, two hash browns, a slice of toast cut in two, bubble and squeak, baked beans, an egg and mushrooms.

We both also ordered a latte to wash it down.

Service was super quick, and it didn't take long for our orders to arrive. In fact, it might have been some of the speediest service I've ever had, a real 'blink and you'll miss it' scenario.

The portions were incredibly generous. Not as generous as I'd make at home mind you, but it's up there. I've seen some breakfasts in my time and this has got to be among the biggest from any cafe I've been to.

My favourite part of a full English is the bacon and I have to say that it was cooked to perfection, with just the right amount of crisp and flavour, it was divine. The sausages were equally good and very flavoursome.

I enjoyed my egg and toast, and kindly donated my mushrooms to Ben as I am not a fan of them either. Beans I feel are something that you cannot go wrong with, once you've seen one bean, you've seen them all so there isn't a whole lot to say about them, they were nice.

Our coffees were huge, one thing I dislike about most cafes is the fact they tend to be a bit stingy with their beverages, but that is not the case with Jenny's, our beverages were plentiful.

Price-wise, my breaky cost £10.25 while Ben's was £11 and our coffees were £3.50. You can't complain too much about the cost of this scran, you definitely get what you pay for - a well-cooked, delicious and filling breakfast.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so choosing the right place to have it should be a priority. Jenny's certainly delivers when it comes to size, service, and price. There's a reason why it has been around for so long.

I can't say for sure if this is THE best breakfast in the city, further research must be done, however, I will say that Jenny's does not disappoint, if you're in the market for a quality breaky, look no further.
