Third time lucky, we arrived (1) in time for brekky (11.45 am cut off) and (2) when the place was open (closed Sunday). I'm glad we did. Not only were my scrambles very good, but the sourdough toast was the best I've had so far. Curiously, the bread came from the same place that Missy went to school, namely Geelong (La Madre Bakery, to be specific). They also served up some excellent sauteed mushrooms (dark, tasty and not wet), and a decent serve of "thin crisp" bacon (which was an original touch). Although there was no HP sauce, they did come through with some red onion chutney (at least, that's what it tasted like to me).
In addition to the usual fruits, mueslis and stuff-on-toast (eg, Persian fetta and roasted tomato on olive toast), the "Autumn menu" included a choice of three omelettes: Tom Cooper's smoked salmon, fresh tomato & oregano, or mushroom & parmesan.
The place itself has a good feel, with purple walls, cushioned banquette, and two spacious communal tables. The Genovese coffee is excellent (and arrives quickly), and the service friendly and efficient.
We were there on the weekend, so the crowd was a mix of young(ish) and old. But I'm guessing it fills up with ladies-who-lunch during the week. Botox latte anyone?
16/20 "best toast"
