In this week’s Too Good To Go bag I received an a la carte breakfast selection from St Andrews hotel and bistro, Hotel du Vin.
I travelled to the beautiful town of St Andrews this week in pursuit of my £4 à la carte breakfast bag from Hotel du Vin.
Located on The Scores by the water, the venue is a popular hotel and bistro serving up a French style cuisine which both intrigued and excited me.
On a mission to fight food waste, Too Good To Go is an online app which allows you to connect with local restaurants and shops in your area and stop excess food going to waste.
After reserving my bag the afternoon before on the app, I ventured out the following morning to pick up my mystery bag.
What was in my Too Good To Go Bag?
After being handed an eco-friendly brown bag and two boxes, I was hopeful this bag would deliver on both quality and quantity.
To my delight I found a mixture of foods from their breakfast country table as well as the hot breakfast plates they make fresh to order.
Inside the first box I found two pain au chocolats and two croissants. The second box contained a mixture of meats and vegetables including bacon, black pudding, sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes.
And if that wasn’t enough, inside the bag I found four mango and vanilla mini yoghurts.
Certainly a hearty breakfast all for one person in my opinion.

Was it worth it?
After seeing how much I have saved on this premium breakfast selection, I was very happy with what I received in my Too Good To Go bag from Hotel du Vin.
I would recommend to anyone looking to save some money to try and grab a bargain on the app.
Being handed a bag full of mystery items is part of the fun, and trying to cook up new dishes with these ingredients is another exciting challenge.
