Eggs Benedict at Tamper Coffee, Sheffield

Tamper coffee eggs benedict sheffieldBruuuuunch.

I feel like I write about brunch a lot on here, but I checked and I’ve only done it 3 times so… here’s a fourth!

Sheffield is a great city for food, and brunch is no exception. There are so many cool, tasty places I’ve tried and way more I haven’t. My most recent trip was to Tamper Coffee which has been on my list for so long now. And I don’t know why I didn’t go sooner. Thank God for spontaneous friends who text me saying ‘wanna go for lunch?’ – the answer is always yes!

Tamper Coffee is a New Zealand style cafe who pride themselves on serving amazing coffee and incredible food. And we all know which I’m here for. Located in a former 19th century silversmiths, and conveniently located next to my university, it’s a place filled with character. The benches are old worktops with clamps reminding me of my Design and Technology school days. Exposed brick, hanging plants and plenty of natural sunlight flooding through the windows – an instagrammers dream. Overall it’s a pretty hip location, perfect for brunch with pals or solo coffee and pastry sessions. I would love to be one of these solo people one day. The people who ooze coolness as they sip their coffee and flip to another chapter of their book. Goals.

Side note: I noticed they cater for a lot of different dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan, dairy free etc. which is always great to see.

So let’s talk food!

Obviously I came for eggs benedict. And although we had gone for lunch this happened to be on both the breakfast and lunch menus. Hallelujah! Now don’t get me wrong – I love cool cafes, but this is the type of place where if you’re not prepared for ‘fancy’ food, you could be disappointed. It’s the kind of place where reading the menu might make you raise your eyebrows a bit. But if you’re wanting delicious food with a certain wow factor then you’re in luck.

The eggs benedict.

I feel like I’ve started a kind of Chicken Connoisseur series reviewing eggs benny. It’s my all time favourite dish to get at brunch – who has the time to make hollandaise at home? Not me. And you may remember when I went for brunch at Craft and Dough I said that was the best benedict of my life. Well not anymore! Although this was actually more of an eggs florentine as we had to add the bacon to the dish but hey ho.

So first of all – the eggs. I would like to know which exact chicken laid these eggs as the yolks were so orange, I probably gasped. They were poached to perfection and made for some dreamy ‘yolk porn’ photos. These were resting on a bed of creamed spinach atop lightly toasted English muffins. The hollandaise was fresh and creamy with a drizzle of some kind of pesto-esque spinach topping. In the words of Elena – ‘a spinach jus’. It also came with bubble & squeak which I feel added an extra something something. And of course – the bacon. Again, they got this so right. I don’t want to sound weird by over-analysing bacon but I could see what they were doing. Two slices of not quite cripsy bacon and one slice completely crisp and almost pork crackling-like. Oh my god. The perfect combination to suit all peoples crispy vs non crispy needs. I’m a bit of both so this was pretty amazing.

That yolk tho

But long story short – before I start getting too extra over this brunch lol (too late). This was the best eggs benedict of my life and I don’t know how many more times I’ll be able to say that. Truly incredible. I need to go back right now.

And with that, I promise to give the brunch posts a bit of a rest. There’s only so many times you can read about my eggs benny.

So thanks for reading,

    Looks like pea shoots garnishing the top. i tried some of these only the other day in a bag of salad baby leaves and they are lush. i like them so much because the taste like peas form the pod picked straight from the bush and my Grandad used to pick them off for me to eat. Nostalgia!!! he also used to give me some of his bacon rind ( much more yummy than nowadays bacon and only over 50’s will understand), thanks for another great Blog post, love Mum xxx
