2015 Best Breakfast


Visiting Oleana chef Ana Sortun’s narrow bakery on the Cambridge fringes is an exotic way to kick-start the day. The menu is a parade of Mediterranean-inspired delights, including the luscious shakshuka, poached eggs pooling in a tangy tomato-curry broth that has even the most dignified Cantabrigians scraping the bowl. Ever-changing items like pistachio Pop-Tarts and pancakes stuffed with briny halloumi cheese and Swiss chard round out the glorious morning menu.
