Breakfast at Historic Rivermill

I love English breakfast. This Easter we went to Historic River mill I Gold Coast to have fun with family.
I would like to share the breakfast I enjoyed. I bet, I want to go there and have it once more.
Poached eggs, hash browns, sausage, ham, fresh tomatoes and bread butter and jam along with a hot coffee. It was so fresh and so tasty. Awesome.
It is a beautiful picnic spot to spend a day with friends and family.
Also can buy farm fresh fruits and veggies from the sale outlets.
