Todd & Pup New Summer Menu, Moorooka

You might remember me raving about the G&T eggs bene I had last time I visited Todd & Pup in Moorooka – it was amazing and this time was no different!

There were so many great choices on the new summer menu that Jane and I struggled to pick. There’s a tick from me straight away.

In the end, Jane went with the festive breakfast and I chose the summer mushrooms. True to the menu’s name, both were really fresh and summery.

But first, juice!! I love starting the day with a fresh juice, makes me feel healthy – even if I’m not haha. I had the signature juice which was beautiful and citrus-y, bursting with flavour.

The festive breakfast had peach with fresh ham, egg, bocconcini and basil. So, Jane wasn’t 100% sure of her decision.. she wasn’t sure how it would all go together. Hilariously, within a mouthful, I couldn’t shut her up about how good it was!

Jane starts “holy crap that’s actually delicious! The peach gives it a completely different flavour. Fresh. Mmmm.”
A moment later… “OMG that peach… wow.”

Obviously I want to try the festive breakfast now too.

My summer mushrooms were simply delicious. Very moreish with that amazing truffle honey drizzled over the whole plate and mixing perfectly with the mushrooms and feta. I was so excited just about the mushrooms and truffle honey that I forgot there were eggs hiding in there which picked it up another notch! The different textures of the dish (including walnut) make it very interesting as well as tasty.

The staff were super helpful and friendly which always makes the whole experience that much better. Sitting in the cool summer morning air was a lovely way to start the day too.

Great work Todd & Pup! I want to try the decadent fried chicken eggs bene soon too!

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!
