Rosemarino, Clifton, Bristol

You can celebrate the seasons at Rosemarino – the menus change as they do – and whatever the weather, it’s bound to be good. Breakfast leads the way. There’s a strong Mediterranean slant to the dishes, so my mushrooms on toast came with sage, truffle oil and parmesan, making them a rich and fragrant alternative to the greasy spoon usual. The Egg Poacher’s scrambled eggs were beautifully seasoned and came with crisp, light bacon, and if you’re really hungry there’s a ‘one pan wonder’ comprising of all the best brunch bits, topped with fried eggs and cheese. Pavarotti would have approved. You can feel truly continental and dine outside (get there early and you’ll be perfectly placed to soak up the morning sun); best of all, breakfast is served right through the afternoon. It’s proving itself to be one to watch when it comes to authentic Italian food, and, as you’d expect, the coffee is perfectly made. Soft music plays, staff bustle to and fro, and they serve a mean Bloody Mary – hard not to be happy here.

Price: From £2.10 (toast and preserves) to £7.25 (full breakfast); extras £0.95-£1.25.
