Just what the doctor ordered

In the shape of a breakfast.... My Dad had to have some stitches out at Harrogate hospital, as I had won a competition for have 2 breakfast at Clarks In Easingwold it was the idea opportunity to make them into our late lunch on our way back. Easingwold is about 10 miles from us here and after sampling their meals we would certainly recommend  you call in . There was quite a full restaurant when we got there. A large selection of hot meals,cold snacks or just teas and coffee. I have shopped here many times for bread ,teacakes and those lovely little fondant cakes which look like a rather pregnant domino .But have to confess I have never eaten here before.
Local "lasses" are the waitresses and we were well looked after. As my Dad was finishing off his food I nipped through to the shop and bought him some teacakes,a vanilla slice and a ? like a scone crossed with a rock cake and was told it had ginger in it . Please note that I fore went the sausage and I dont do baked beans but I had more than ample.And my dad had to help me out as I dont eat egg whites - never have, never will .  We had some lovely door stop toast and my dad had Yorkshire tea while I settled for water as apart from the odd gin ,water is all I drink . The parsley I brought home for the guinea pigs.

We have to thank Mrs Lucy Clark for

Clarks Bakers was established in approximately 1925 in a 17th century building in a small market town called Easingwold by Mrs Lucy Clark, grandmother of the current owner Mr.G.L.Clark.
Grandmother Clark started her business by baking scones to sell through the window of her house, as it was then, to the tarmac men who came down from Middlesborough and Stockton to build and repair the roads. The tarmac men suggested that Lucy should open a Café or shop, and that she duly did. This saw the start of Clarks the Bakers. The house was later converted to become a bakery, shop and a small Café.
Since 1925 the business has grown, and is now run by the fourth generation of the Clark family who has maintained the belief in high standards that were set so many years ago. This has been achieved by including the best ingredients from around the world, employing highly skilled and experienced master bakers and checking the quality of the finished product adheres to our standards of quality.
