Surroundings: Large open space filled with natural light. Shelves filled with local produce. A cheese room lurks near the front counter awaiting temptation.
Liquid Consumption: Cappuccino X2.
Mains: Corn and coriander fritters with smoked salmon, poached egg, spinach and Tomato & Capsicum Relish (pictured above those tempting jams)
These crunchy babies were too good. It reminded me of mum’s salmon patties (which reminds me that I have to post the recipe).
The crunchy coating revealing the sweet juicy corn kernels bursting in your adrenaline filled mouth.
The highlight of the show was definitely the salsa combined with the yolk from the poached egg and fresh salmon finally folded amongst the fritters. I went beserk. Moaning and groaning like a damn maniac. Of course I didn’t care.
‘The Lot’: 2 eggs cooked as you prefer with bacon, mushrooms and tomato. This should’ve been called “The Excessive” I swear I heard my jeans button pop out as it could no longer hold the fort. Poor guy. Some nice ladies nearby were in hysterics as they couldn’t believe how large the meal was.
The mushrooms were the king on this plate with the buttery juices flowing out like Niagara Falls.
The Cheese Room. Most of their cheeses are homemade, rather than being mass produced. We had a taste of their farmhouse cheddar and goats brie. Of course I was beside myself and couldn’t resist buying a couple hundred grams worth. The Farm house Cheddar was the winner- slightly crumbly with the right amount of bitterness.
Service: The waitress staff were friendly. Cheese room attendant at the time was ok.
Bring a date here: Of course.
Brekkie with friends? Well, that all depends on whether your friends actually wake up before 12PM on a weekend.
$$$: 40 + Cheese
Food Rehab Verdict: Sent me to food rehab (book this place now! Wowzer) – Greenlight
Where would you recommend I go for breakfast next? I like cheese….
