On this occasion, I opted for the chocolate chip ‘Snoopy & Woodstock Pancakes’ with a side of homefries. As my meal arrived, I was disappointed by the apparent small portion-size, but soon discovered that the quantity I was given was more than enough. The pancakes were light and fluffy, living up to my expectations, but it was the homefries that really caught my attention. These perfectly seasoned potatoes may not have complemented my meal all that well, but they would be the first thing that I recommend to any potential visitor. I finished off my meal with a chocolate ‘thick shake’, which left me struggling to move but was very much worth it. Other recommendations from past experience include opting for the decently priced bottomless coffee, perfect if you are hoping to tackle an essay crisis after this morning treat. However, the one and only time I have left Atomic Burger disappointed was when I sampled the ‘Huevos Rancheros’ Mexican breakfast consisting of a tortilla served with eggs, refried beans, salsa and jalapeños, a dish that I found to be too ‘saucy’ for breakfast.
It is not just the food, but also the fact that the restaurant does not take itself too seriously, that keeps me coming back. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere, and the nostalgic surroundings make the dining experience all the more enjoyable even in the late-morning. Now serving breakfast from 10am-12pm daily, I would highly recommend that you try the Atomic Burger breakfast. Although it is usually very busy on weekends, the breakfast here serves as the perfect start to a lazy Sunday. But be advised to book in advance.
Price: A bit more than you would expect to pay for breakfast at around £5-£8 for a main
Service: Very friendly, usually fairly swift
