And now, there’s a new favourite in the newsroom.
Subway offers a range of breakfast subs for its customers, and for just £2, you get a coffee on the side, too.
The deal is great value for money – when you consider the price of a coffee at Subway is £1.60, you are technically paying just 40p for a breakfast sub.
The Herald and Gazette team visited the Subway take-away restaurant in Chapel Road, Worthing, to order its breakfast, and was greeted with a smile. The Subway staff were unfazed by the six-person order, and quickly delivered the team’s subs, with no errors, in a matter of minutes.
All the Herald and Gazette staff chose meat options for their breakfast subs, but there is also a vegetarian option of egg and cheese.
I opted for the sausage, egg and cheese sub, which came with a substantial amount of filling, and just enough cheese to not overwhelm the whole sandwich.
I also chose the hearty Italian-style bread for my sub, which proved to be a good choice to complement the filling.
Two of the reporters opted for the bacon, egg and cheese sub, which comes with a choice of sauce. While both the reporters said the sub was filling and a tasty breakfast option, they were of the opinion the sub could have benefited from more bacon, to make the eating experience more satisfying.
Reporter Josh Wilkie said: “For £2, the breakfast combo of a bacon, egg and cheese sub and a white coffee, was superb value for money and a filling treat. The bacon, although not freshly cooked, was of good flavour, and was complemented by soft fresh bread.
“The bonus you get with a subway breakfast is you have everything you would expect from a breakfast, like sausage, bacon and egg, with the added optional extra of bread choice and access to all salad.
“The only thing I would say, is my sub could have been heated up a bit more – I like a hot breakfast roll.”
Content editor Nicola Caines ordered a sausage sub, with brown sauce. She said the sub was tasty and well-filled – despite not having chosen any other breakfast items – and was a far more satisfying breakfast roll than others she has sampled in the past.
Reporter Alex Therrien went all out with his breakfast order and ordered the mega melt deal for £2.50, which comes packed with all the staple favourites – sausage, bacon and egg, along with the optional helping of cheese and brown sauce.
He said: “I had the mega melt, and was extremely pleased with the value and size of my sub.
“When you consider all this comes with a surprisingly tasty latté, considering the reasonable price, it would be fair to say Subway has been elevated to the status of breakfast king in the Herald and Gazette office.”
