In the heart of Southampton, just off of Guildhall Square, you’ll find the unconventional and quirky Rogue’s Cafe. Serving up a premium breakfast and brunch menu all day long, this unconventional cafe offers high quality, ethically sourced dishes. When the invitation for bloggers brunch dropped into my inbox from Soton Bloggers I couldn’t be more excited to pop along and try out the brunch menu for myself. So a couple of weeks later on a sunny Saturday morning, we descended upon Rogue’s to fuel up on pancakes, avocado on toast and fresh smoothies.
The cafe is spread over two floors with a real charm and character about the place. There is art work all over the walls which was has been handmade by the staff members which really adds to the atmosphere of this quirky little cafe. If your lucky enough you may even get to meet Percy, who is Rogue’s main attraction and the friendliest dog I have ever met. The eclectic decor helps highlight the welcoming and relaxed ambience this cafe has to offer with an equally eclectic menu to match.
The brunch menu has a wide selection of choices including american pancakes, french toast, poached eggs and asparagus on sourdough toast and a hearty full English. Basically a brunch lovers heaven – in fact I dare you to find something you won’t like. If you`re looking for something slightly more indulgent than be sure to check out the main menu. There’s a little bit of everything from burgers and chicken wings to pie and nachos. Everything is freshly prepared with local, free range ingredients sourced wherever possible. If you’re after a break from the norm then you have definitely come to the right place with quirky interiors, and friendly faces – there is little not to like.
Overall there isn’t really a better way to spend a Saturday morning than with pancakes and a fabulous group of people. A big thank you to Alice and Emily for organising such an amazing morning, to the guys at Rogue’s for letting us descend upon them and everyone who contributed to help the sanitary protection collection organised by the girls for The Homeless Period– an admirable volunteer led campaign dedicated to providing vulnerable people with necessary sanitary protection. If you find yourself in or around Guildhall Square be sure to check this place out.
