G&T Eggs Bene At Todd & Pup Moorooka

Anyone else fancy starting their day with a perfectly poached and stunning G&T eggs benedict? I thought so. All of you.

Well I started with just that today at Todd & Pup in Moorooka. And a fresh green juice to go alongside it. Perfect.

More about this G&T eggs bene you ask? Well, there was a very generous helping of gin cured salmon (amazing), with poached eggs, cumber, lime hollandaise, rye and finger limes. It’s even gluten free! And the finger limes are oh-so-pretty. A perfect contrast against the cucumber. The plate looks just stunning too. Perfectly insta-worthy.

You know how sometimes, hollandaise can be really rich, creamy and overwhelming? Well this wasn’t like that. It was lovely and fresh and there wasn’t too much of it.

Do yourself a favour and try some of the salmon on it’s own with just the cucumber and the hollandaise. Seriously a delicious bite. I was very impressed. A breakfast twist on an absolute classic drink that I would never have dreamed up.

I have to admit, I very nearly overlooked this for the special: fried chicken benedict with buttermilk fried chicken, smoked bacon, spinach and chill hollandaise on brioche…. you see my calamity?!

The exciting part is that pups are of course welcome. There’s a big outdoor section where they can all socialise and there’s special treats in store for them.

I grabbed a take-away almond chai latte as I ran out the door too – I was in a great mood when I arrived at work!

The Gramercy Social, Prahran, Melbourne

I really didn’t feel like much on the menu here. I deliberated and eventually chose the lemon and blueberry bircher muesli while Lisa was pretty excited about the ‘big apple’ eggs benedict with house made pastrami.

Lisa’s choice didn’t sound great to me but it actually looked pretty good when it came out. She was very happy with herself. My bircher museli was nice to start with, but became very sweet very quickly from the juice it had been soaked in. The coconut yoghurt and passionfruit added to the sweetness, needless to say I couldn’t finish it all.

With so many great brunch choices in Melbourne I will plan my stops more carefully next time.

Indulge Cafe, Bundaberg

We heard rumours that this was the best cafe in Queensland from an experienced travel writer – we had to check it out! 

It doesn’t open until 8.30, we were hanging for our coffees after waiting out the front for the cafe to open. 

That aside, the menu looks phenomenal and I could quite happily make my way right through the entire thing! 

Modern and intricate decor, beautiful and fresh pastries on the counter. We chose the window bar to people watch.

Almond chai latte – on point.

Could hardly make my mind up on which breakfast item, finally settling on the W.A. black Truffle scrambled eggs on sour dough with rich tomato ragu, crispy local bacon and pecorino. At $20 I thought it was very reasonable. 

The meal didn’t take long to come out and was delightful! You could smell and taste the truffle, the ragu was rich and the bacon cooked perfectly. 

Brandon went with the Turkish eggs, they looked beautiful and apparently tasted great too! 

Can’t wait to go back again soon!

Windmill at Bargara 

I chose the most unique breakfast menu item, the smashed pumpkin with poached eggs, mushrooms, macadamia crunch and feta.  

It wasn’t quite what I expected (I’d half thought it would come on bread like an avo smash), but it was delicious. 

The feta and eggs are a great break to the strong and sweet flavours of the pumpkin and macadamia crunch. 

The macadamia crunch is very sweet, I’d go for a juice instead of an almond chai latte which was my choice. 

Benny and Jo both had the breakfast stack and were impressed. 

I want to go back and try the gelato!

Fat Hen,Seattle

Beautiful baked eggs.

After seeing the baked eggs on the tables we had no choice but to all order them at Fat Hen! They looked so good. I ordered the ham and smoked mozzarella (in carrazza) dish while Suzie and Krishna tried the tomato and basil (in camicia) dish.

Krishna and I split our plates so we could try both – they were delicious. The eggs weren’t over cooked (they often are in this style) and the loaf to complement to plate worked well. If I could choose just one it would be the in camicia.

They had other yummy menu items too – I nearly went with the breakfast mozzarella.

Be prepared to wait though. Ours was only 20mins but others after us was much longer and there is nothing around. Hot spot!

Main Street Cafe, Kangaroo Point, Brisbane 

After a sweaty hot yoga session, Renee, Nikki and I made our way (yes, in our active wear) to Main Street Cafe. 
The cafe is part of the Story Bridge, an iconic bar in the heart of Kangaroo Point. Funky decor, fresh juice and bread.

We all ended up ordering the same meal, sweet corn fritters with smashed avocado, semi sundries tomatoes and dukkah. The sweet corn was fresh and juicy – popped in your mouth and everything worked well together on the plate. Big servings and with my fresh juice I was full and happy after my big start to the day!

Hot Tip: they sell beautiful bunches of lillies for $20!
