Ikea breakfasts

Just a tip that if you happen to be touring near an Ikea, register for the family card then pop into the restaurant in the morning (in Southampton it's between 10 and 11) and grab a 99p fried breakfast with a refillable coffee or tea.

Also useful if you need some sugar, milk sachets, tomato ketchup, mayonaise etc.

Infact I think coffee is free to family card holders whether you buy anything else or not.

I don't have children. Do I need to round up a stray 3 year old in order to snag this card or can I just kid on at the desk?

Ah I wouldn't worry about that but if you're worried just put '1' into the children box lol.

I forgot to mention the 99p price doesn't apply to weekends or bank holidays.

They also do a larger '9 piece' £1.59 breakfast but I reckon it's better value to just get two smaller 6 piece ones.

You can also get a veggy breakfast for the same price instead. Round here this used to include a a cheese type sausage which was really nice but they've now replaced this with a slightly dry quorn one.

Don't forget if you don't want eggs just tell them and they'll replace that with something else.

One of the best tips that I picked up about LEJOG riding was to seek out the transport cafes and supermarket cafes for value for money calories.

The Raven cafe at Preesheath near Whitchurch serves a gigantic breakfast and cyclists are treated as honorary wagon drivers i.e. big portions and pint pot of tea....
 
Morrisons supermarkets always do a very good fried Brekky

cheap breakfasts are fine by me. And I have to admit that when I do go to IKEA I usually have at least one of their hot dogs.

But is there an IKEA anywhere near any place that a touring cyclist would be likely to go - unless they were very very lost?.

Although I'm not much of a meat eater so wouldn't recommend this as such, just to inform people in the Southampton area that the Red Lion pub in Totton near Southampton does an all day breakfast (which is reasonably large) for £1.99. House shots are 69p each but they charge about 40p for the dash of coke. A range of pints for £2.50.

Totton is near the New Forest so would appeal to tourers, as would the Southampton Ikea really as it's only about a 15 min ride from Totton.

Street view link to Red Lion pub, with price. I'm not sure if they do meals for £1.99 or just the all day breakfast. They even used to do alcohol deliveries late at night.

Lol this is funny. It's almost like people can use street view to advertise.

Distance between the two.

The above route is largely cycle paths, short roads and large pavements adjacent to the A road, although I'd encourage people to go over Millbrook flyover as it's quite quick.
