Daley at Chimmy's, South Melbourne

I'm a sucker for a good sausage. So this morning I was easily lured to Daley at Chimmy's, 276-278 Park Street, South Melbourne, Tel +61 3 9696 7418. They make their own bunny bangers... What more can I say?



Admittedly, it's not the sort of place you'd take the book-club to discuss the finer points of Watership Down. But the meat-lovers will be very impressed. Tasty little rabbit snags, grilled smoked bacon, and black pudding. The breakfast meats were clearly a cut above average. I just wish they'd gone the extra yard with the condiments. Plain old tomato sauce didn't quite cut the mustard, so to speak. A spicy home-made plum sauce would, IMHO, make a real difference.

The rest of the food is also pretty good. My scrambles were fine (but not great), and the poached eggs were excellent. Even better, the hollandaise was spot on. Nice sauteed spinach too.

If I was to put a label on Daley's, I think it would be gastro-brunch. You know, the brunch equivalent of gastro-pub food. Fish lovers might be tempted by the smoked haddock, poached egg and seeded mustard beurre blanc. Sugar lovers can go for the muesli pancake with strawberry compote and buffalo labna. Or keep it simple and try the mature cheddar on toast with balsamic glaze. Fancy.

Service was somewhere between OK and good, and the coffee was excellent. It's also pretty well priced, unless you stack on the extras. Our brekky for two came in just under $35.

16/20 "bunny bangers"

Breakfast is truly the best meal of the day. I stumbled across your blog by some sort of fated accident and for the past few weeks, have been making all breakfast decisions based on it.

I just wanted to let you know that I went to Daleys today and they now use a yummy tomato chutney!

This backery has the finest chocolate croissants, foccacia's and seven grain bread available in Melbourne. A real treat if quality makes a difference to you. Highly recommended.

Sadly they are no longer serving cooked breakfasts.

as I work around the corner I am a big fan of Chimmy's, especially their quiches, and I had a very nice brekkie there (including the bunny bangers!) a while ago. I'm very sad to hear they're not doing cooked breakfasts anymore :( Will go and remonstrate tomorrow.

Incidentally, I had the most delicious raspberry danish from there today :)
