Best breakfast in town: ‘When people drive 150 miles for breakfast, you know you’re on to a good thing. Recently voted by The Times one of the top 10 breakfast places in London and the South East,

this unassuming Farmcafe is on the side of the A12 in Suffolk. It has a large south facing veranda for alfresco dining and a garden away from the road where children can play. The views are lovely and it is an area of outstanding beauty.

Farmcafe is extremely popular with families, often led by the children – parents say ‘The only way we can get them to visit the grandparents is to promise to come to this cafe.’ But it’s obviously no hardship for the grown-ups to be dragged here with its continental ambience, award-winning sausages and great coffee. Children choose what portions they want from the menu. The produce is mostly local and you can even buy it from the on-site shop.’
