Farm Kitchen in Southsea was a little treat in between lockdown restrictions. This was my very first visit to the restaurant and my first brunch in a very long time, for obvious 2020 reasons!
Like Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food? Well, Farm Kitchen’s twist on breakfast might be for you…
📍67 Palmerston Rd, Southsea, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3PP
I met a friend for a socially distanced walk around the city followed by brunch at Farm Kitchen. I’ve actually walked past this cafe regularly and can’t believe it took me so long to visit.
While the cafe front is small it’s surprisingly big inside, a long and narrow space. Tables had been suitably spaced to act within socially distanced guidelines.
The logo is in a pretty mural on the wall and the kitchen and counter are at the back looking out across the cafe.
There’s also outside seating too and they have been doing takeaway when the pandemic restrictions have been stricter.
Farm Kitchen uses other cultures to put a twist on classic English breakfast dishes. It also introduces some meals from the heritage of the owners and cooks bringing real variety to the menu.
We tucked into Shakshuka and Eggs and Chorizo accompanied by lightly toasted sourdough. Simple combinations, big flavours, delicious!
Fresh orange juice and hot coffee topped off a long overdue catch up over breakfast.
Farm Kitchen has a big menu with plenty of dishes with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences. Chorizo, halloumi, and various spices put a twist on the breakfast meals we know and love. But, there’s still a couple of un-altered English classics on the menu too.
The Mediterranean Breakfast looks like a proper feast. My friend recommended this dish for my next visit, she’s a regular at Farm Kitchen and many of my friends have been getting takeaway breakfast during the 2020 lockdown.
Breakfast in Southsea
Farm Kitchen had a lovely atmosphere inside, with lots of people catching up over breakfast, and you can tell it’s loved by locals.
If you can eat in, fantastic but, they also offer a takeaway option. Grab some breakfast and head to the sea front which is just a five minute walk from the cafe.
