RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

GARFUNKEL'S
LONDON HEATHROW AIRPORT, TERMINAL 4, U.K.

We had seen this chain of restaurants several times during our visits to London and the U.K. but didn't actually dine at one until I was passing through Heathrow Airport on a quick weekend trip.

I was ravenous for breakfast and Garfunkel's was lookin' good at the crowded British Airways Terminal-4!

These aren't fancy places at all.  But they serve good food and are reasonably priced.

The server was helpful and I explained that I might "linger" a little during the meal because I got to the airport way ahead of schedule.  She couldn't have been any nicer and kept the hot coffee coming.

I chose the traditional English breakfast and it was quite tasty.  All the "usual suspects" showed up on the plate including eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, a broiled tomato and hash browns.  All for under five pounds.

During the rest of the day they offer sandwiches, salads, pizza, ribs, fish -- you name it.

You'll find these restaurants in airport terminals at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted in the London area and also in airports in Manchester and Glasgow.  A few others are located in the U.K.  And if you'd like a beer or glass of wine with your meal, they'll be more than happy to accommodate you.

Their web site is located here.
