Danish Camp is to be found just off the A603 at Willington in between Sandy and Bedford, take the turn signposted Village Loop and is situated through a gate, not simple to find, but it is there.
Once inside, the cafe is situated in the most perfect location right by the banks of the River Ouse, the building is a type of Swiss Cabin arrangement. I wandered up to the counter to ask if with it was counter service or do they take my order at the table, I was given a menu and was told they would take my order, I was obviously wrong, as once I had selected my breakfast and waited 15 minutes with no one coming, so I had to go back to the counter to order, at the back of a long queue of pensioners.
So there was no real service as it was all conducted via the counter.
If it was the breakfast menu one was seeking, there was not a huge selection, but there was probably something that may have tickled one’s fancy.
On the Plate:
I decided to go for The Regular Breakfast with an extra slice of bacon (at £1.75 a rasher, very expensive). So I was really looking forward to my breakfast this morning, sitting in a wonderful setting over looking the river ….. and then my breakfast arrived.
I was really surprised with the items on the plate, the bacon was good, although expensive, but it was well cooked, the sausage was not good, and the egg was only just cooked, I do not like Italian tinned tomatoes, with a wedge of bread and butter to finish off with, which I have to admit, I have never seen with a breakfast before.
I decided to have a large cup of coffee which to be honest, was the same size as anywhere else’s regular, but it was a pleasure to drink and very flavoursome.
The Regular Breakfast was £6.95 the extra rasher of bacon £1.75 and the coffee was £2.80 giving a total of £11.50.
I will not be rushing back to The Danish Camp anytime soon for a cooked breakfast, I may well go back for the aspect near the river to have a coffee and a cheese scone and just enjoy the scenery.
