Traffic Cafe, Northcote

When it comes to eggs, perfection is a highly subjective concept. So anyone whose menu brags of "perfectly poached eggs" is asking for trouble. Proving my point is Traffic Cafe, 85 High St, Northcote, Tel +61 3 9403 3222... I'll have the perfect eggs, thanks.

Actually, my eggs were pretty close to perfect, which was a pleasant surprise. But the person behind me scored a hard one, and had to send it back.

The benedict was well above average, with good hollandaise, well-toasted muffins and a side of golden-fried hash browns (the mass-produced variety, unfortunately). Good scrambled eggs too.
