It was only by chance that I happened to come across this ‘Breakfast on the Estate’ event on Facebook. I immediately made up my mind to attend although it was carded to start at 7am on a Sunday and the venue was approximately one hour away from my warm bed.
The event page promised gourmet items such as crepes, so I was glad to see a cuisine that was different from the traditional Trinbagonian breakfast.
I aimed to get there before half seven and I did, although I got lost and was heading randomly on a paved walkway on the golf course.
My apologies to all the Sunday morning golfers affected.
The ‘Breakfast on the Estate’ event was held at the Carmel Valley Estate. I must admit that I had never heard of this place before. I should know of this venue because my alma mater Trinity College is situated less than ten minutes away.
The Estate was lovely, a small group of buildings nestled on one corner of the golf course.
I spied the menu and firstly could not decide on what I wanted to eat.
When I finally ordered and headed to the upstairs eating area. I found that it was a spacious area, neatly decorated and quiet.
This area got filled pretty quickly by customers enjoying their breakfasts.
The downstairs area was filled by the time I had finished eating.
The customer service was wonderful. Patrons were also assisted in parking by a couple of courteous gentlemen. They were very patient, it is no easy feat getting me to park).
I hope they have this event again, the cuisine and ambience were highly enjoyable.
