This Yorkshire cafe is selling full English breakfasts for just 99p

The Sheffield cafe has dropped the price of its fry ups to help customers struggling with the cost of living

A cafe in Yorkshire has started selling its full English breakfasts for just 99p in a bid to help customers who are feeling the pinch from the cost of living emergency.

Tastee in Sheffield has partnered with a local meat supplier in order to offer the fry up – comprised of one egg, one sausage, a portion of beans, a slice of bacon and tomatoes – for under £1.

Usually, the breakfast would cost you £3.50 – but the cafe’s owners have decided to drop the price as they acknowledge many people in the area are struggling following big hikes in taxes, petrol, energy and food costs.

The cafe’s co-owner Nadine Grant told the BBC she and her staff just wanted to do their bit “to try and help the local community”, adding that people “can’t afford to spend on food like they used to”.

Ms Grant continued: “They don’t spend as much, or come in as often. It’s obviously because of the situation at the moment.”

“It is a big drop, but I had a word with my meat suppliers and they are helping us out a bit.”

In spite of being hit with spirally energy and food costs herself, Ms Grant still wanted to do something to help local families who were struggling and so had a conversation with her meat supplier about providing certain items for less.

It’s not the first time that she has done something to help struggling families, either, having previously helped to make up packed lunches for children and families in need during the pandemic.

The cafe, in Gleadless, serves a range of prepared hot and cold food to eat in or takeaway starting with breakfast and stretching into tea.

As well as the excellently priced full English, other items on the menu include baked potatoes, homemade cheese pies, hot roast pork rolls with stuffing, dip and apple sauce, chicken curry and chips with naan, and fish and chips.
