"Atina Kitchen is an eclectic, family run restaurant featuring Italian cuisine with contemporary British twists. The name Atina is part of our family’s Italian heritage and we feel that this is epitomised by our ever changing breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menus you will find in our restaurant which is ideally located at the heart of the city of Chester."
The breakfast menu is quite extensive and even the menu is presented in a quirky way, nestled inside a National Geographic magazine.
The food was freshly prepared, we could see the chef preparing out breakfast through the small hatch at the back of the room and it came out to us in a good time while we were sipping our delicious latte.
Our breakfast was carefully presented and looked delicious.....
My breakfast (Atina breakfast) included two pork and leek sausages, two rashers of bacon, two poached eggs (you can choose what eggs you want), mushrooms, beans, a baked tomato and thickly sliced fresh toast. I did really enjoy the breakfast however the sausages were extremely heavy so I could only eat one - and I love food - I could tell they were really good quality but just too much for me.
Rob's breakfast was the same as mine however his sausages were veggie sausages and he had an addition of a potato scone which was really tasty! It's really great to see restaurants catering for vegetarians and putting something 'different' on the plate as some places just fill it with eggs or extra mushrooms so it was a welcome extra.
Overall it was a nice breakfast however next time we visit (which we will) I will definitely be opting for something more adventurous like The Hangover - scrambled eggs & cheddar in a tortilla wrap with chorizo & house tomato ragu (£7.95).
Atina Kitchen do an delicious looking lunch and evening menu which I would be very keen to try out as the ingredients used are of a high quality and carefully presented in comfortable and cosy surroundings.
I would definitely recommend going into Atina Kitchen if you are looking for an independent eatery in the heart of Chester city centre. If you are happy to travel a little bit further out of the centre of the city then you must visit Cafe Fude (REVIEW HERE).
Do you like to visit independent places or do you prefer high street chains?
