This Wrexham bistro may be the ideal spot to escape the winter with it's early morning breakfasts. 

Cleopatra's bistro is located in the picturesque village of Holt, just 10 minutes outside of Wrexham City Centre. 

Often when the words 'weekend breakfast catchup' come up, it normally refers to a timeframe of between 11am to possibly 2pm.

However, last weekend my friend and I had the difficult task of trying to find somewhere open for breakfast before 10am on a Sunday! 

After numerous disappointments (restaurants opening later in the day) we came across Cleopatra's Bistro in Holt which to our pleasant suprise opened it's doors at 9am.

The restaurant is situated in the centre of the quaint village and has a range of both indoor and outdoor seating.

The All Day Menu boasts a variety of breakfast options from eggs, beans, croissants to toasties and sandwiches. 

There are also burgers and salads available, but at 9am going for breakfast choices seemed the no brainer.

Unable to decide between sweet and savoury myself and my friend chose to split a granola and yoghurt and some egg on toast.

The granola was tasty and contained lots of almonds which I enjoyed. 

In addition, the natural yoghurt was a perfect consistancy and paired well with the bananas on offer. 

Whilst this dish was enjoyable and the portion size was excellent value for money, I found the dish quite dry and therefore ordered a small portion of honey to go alongside this.

The egg on toast was enjoyable and a generous portion for the price.

The addition of a small salad complemented the egg and bread. 

Alongside these dishes I ordered an orange juice and a flat white, which I found extremely enjoyable and rich in flavour. 

According to the bistros website the coffee is "specifically roasted for [them], using a combination of South American and African beans."

The restaurant is run by husband and wife Helen and Philippe who pour their heart and soul into the venue. 

According to their website it states: "Wherever possible, Chef Philippe will source the most local products possible. With fresh vegetables, eggs and meats being delivered daily to ensure the freshness of each product is been delivered to your plate."

The breakfast was perfect for what myself and my friend were after and the calm and cosy atmosphere of the bisto allowed us to have a much needed catchup.

I will certainly be going back to try the other food on offer as well as a pizza from the special pizza menu. 

The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly and really helped customers feel at ease.
