HORDES of hungry folk from across Inverclyde are flocking to a Greenock cafe after it became the first in the district to serve up a breakfast ‘munchie box’.

Customers at Orangefield Cafe in Holmscroft Street are getting stuck into the gut-busting morning feast, which features four servings of slice, sausages, bacon, black pudding, potato scones and fried eggs plus beans, bread and butter and two teas.

The new addition to the menu only launched last weekend but staff sold almost 30 in the first two days alone.

They have been inundated with orders ever since, with the munchie box gaining huge attention.

Cafe boss Nicola McEachnie said: “Last Saturday was the first day and we did nine, then on the Sunday we did about 20. It was manic.

“We were rushed off our feet.

“I hope the butcher can cope!”

Nicola, who runs the business along with husband Colin, came up with the idea after spotting something similar online elsewhere.

All the meat is supplied by local butcher Allan McShane from his shop in Broomhill.

The munchie box costs £9 to takeaway or an extra pound to sit-in.

Nicola said: “We do sell a lot of single breakfasts but more often than not people are ordering two or three rolls and add a couple of extras in whether it’s for their kids or someone else.

“So this is something people can share and if there’s something they don’t like they can pick at something else.

“At first I thought it wouldn’t take off but everybody is loving it.”

Nicola and Colin re-opened the popular cafe a year ago after previous owner Dino Pieri retired in December 2013.

The cafe remains a big hit thanks to the original Dino’s Italian ice cream plus sweets, breakfast rolls and now the munchie box.
