It's a popular place for families with prams and cyclists with bikes and with the spaciousness of the outside tables, it's easy to see why. Lovely to sit in the Autumn sunshine.
The menu has lots to offer for breakfast, brunch and lunch. I went with Eggs Benedict which was done with bacon instead of ham. This may be wrong to the traditionalists but a very welcome subsitution for this bacon lover. A side of mushrooms made this a satisfying brunch.
Steve had the chorizo and poached eggs topped with spicy tomato and he added a hash brown which was appetisingly golden and deep fried although somewhat reminscent of fried bread than hash brown.
Coffees, teas and orange juices all arrived quickly and cheerfully. Food took a while longer so by the time it came we were really ready for it. Any longer and I think we'd have been pretty despondent.
Truman Cafe is another good Melbourne cafe. I'm so lucky to live in a place that loves eggs and serving eggs on a weekend.
