Disadvantages: The hot drinks aren't that nice
I go into Sainsburys cafe quite a bit because we do most of our shopping there and even though its not the best quality food most of it's tasty and filling.
I don't think it's that expensive to eat in there and they quite often have special offers on that gives you 2 meals for a set amount or coupons from the till when you pay for your shopping that you can give in at the cafe for a discount.
My fave meal is the lasage because you get loads for your money and the chips are wicked dipped in the sauce. They do breakfasts until about 11am and they're quite good but a bit greasy for in the morning. The big breakfast is good when you've got a hangover though because it's got a bit of all the stuff that will make you feel better like bacon, sausage, egg, toast and beans!
There are special kids meals as well but I don't know much about them because my sister doesn't like the food from here so we don't get her anything except for a yogurt and some fruit.
I'm not mad on the hot drinks because they always taste stewed to me and when the hot chocolate comes out of the machine it's not hot enough and goes cold dead quick.
I like the soup they sell especially the spring vegetable and tomato and basil ones and I think they are homemade because they don't taste like it's just a load of tins tipped together into the soup urn.
The cakes are ok for after you've eaten your dinner but they're not as good as the ones in Morrisons because in Sainsburys they always taste like they've been in the fridge for too long and are proper stodgy and a bit hard because they are so cold.
The Sainsburys I go in is always clean and there's a space to leave your trolley after you've done the shopping but I reckon they should put some trolley sheds up like in Tesco because I always worry that someone is going to walk off with my trolley when I'm not looking because there are some proper scabby druggies who come into this Sainsburys who would think they were the business if they got hold of £100 worth of someone elses shopping.
If you go into Sainsburys around Xmas it's worth you getting yourself one of their Xmas dinners because they are brill for a supermarket cafe and only cost about £5.00. I had one last year that was better than one I'd paid nearly £15.00 for in the pub down the road and the turkey was cooked wicked and it had all the trimmings on it.
Summary: A Nice Meal In Sainsburys That's Good If Your DOn't Expect Gourmet Food
