Hi All, does anyone know how much the porridge is at Café Nero? Thanks.
The price may vary depending on the branch.
As Shutter suggests phoning the branch in question is the answer

Why buy porridge when it is SO simple to make.
per person : 1 cup of porridge oats (real ones not the instant [-Censored-]), 1 cup of water and 1/2cup of milk, pinch of salt to taste.
Add all together and stir continuously until thick (about 5 min), turn down/off and cover until ready to eat.
Had some this morning after walking the dog in the snow.
I tend to add sultana's to mine and extra salt as needed NO SWEETENER/honey/syrup etc.
Reminds me of when I was in hospital a couple of years ago, got porridge for breakfast and had to ask for salt, all the orderly said was "ahh a real Scotsman then", and the strange look I got in Dublin when I asked for salt for my porridge way back in the early 90's.

Agree it is so easy, and quick, to make.
I like to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and occasionally some apple chunks.

Are you thinking of "Shredded Wheat" ? that certainly does look like ( and taste like ) straw !..
And according to this
The cereal, created in the US in the 1890s, has long been sold as good for the evolving British lifestyle. A newspaper advert in 1902 described it as "a relief from the monotony of everlasting porridge", while, by 1943, it was "an ideal food for all war workers".
I don't like Weetabix but do like Shredded Wheat, and have the Bitesize version with a few Frosties on top for the sugar.
Ordinary porridge oats with a bit of milk and a banana sliced into it makes quite a tasty cold breakfast. It has been claimed that oats play a part in lowering cholesterol, and the potassium in the banana could be good for your blood pressure.
