On a typical cold Melbourne morning, we make the stroll for a couple of blocks and find ourselves amongst all the other city workers trying to squeeze in a breakfast feed during rush hour.
Single Origin Coffees $3.80 each
There are only vacancies at the bar so we scoop the opportunity, otherwise we would be waiting a while. We begin with single origin coffees which totally hits the spot. For some reason coffee in Melbourne tastes better – could it be holiday mode?
I eye the little corner where coffees are made and pastries are served. Too bad I didn’t grab myself any take away. I’ve heard plenty about the delicious pastries so sounds like I missed out.
The Full English $18
The Boy goes all out and gets a plate served with farmhouse slab bacon, blood sausage on toast, fried eggs and smoked tomato. Everything was pretty average, except the blood sausage. It was the first time he had it, and I don’t think he liked it very much. Each to their own I say, but we did find it a little too overbearing with everything else on the plate. It was extremely rich and a little too grainy.
I’ve been eyeing this baby for months so it was about time we met! This baked eggs with roasted peppers and shanklish (a type of cows/sheeps milk cheese) was all I ever wanted. I gave up the dinner menu for this!
Egg Yolk Oooze, baby!
And the wait was well worth it. I love me a good baked eggs and this ticked all the right boxes. There was plenty of flavour, oozing egg yolks and was the perfect consistency to be soaked and scooped up in the freshly toasted turkish bread. Deeeeelicious!
After such a great feed, we head towards the Yarra River and walk down the Southbank Promenade. Despite the cold, we were blessed with nothing but blue skies. Melbourne, you are one absolutely gorgeous city that still takes my breath away every time we visit.
