Why eggs?

"All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast" - John Gunther

This is a blog about breakfast. More specifically, it's about my ongoing search for great eggs.

Rather than just annoy a close circle of friends with my views on who does the best benedict in town, or whose scrambles rule the roost, I've decided to share these views with anyone silly enough to listen (or read, in this case). I figure there's at least a handful of breakfast nuts out there who, like me, will welcome some tips on where to find the best breakfast spots in town.

So, why eggs? Why not pancakes, or toast? Why not porridge? Because eggs, for me, are the best test of a good hot brekky. They're quick to cook, easy to compare, widely available, and, in most cases, a pleasure to eat. Although eggs will be the focus, I won't totally ignore non-egg subject matter, like muesli, fruit salad, and the like. No point alienating the health freaks. But who's ever craved a nice-healthy-bowl-of-muesli the morning after a big night out?

My plan is to blog my way through breakfast at two levels. First, I'll do reviews of breakfast venues - good and bad - and rate them according to the eggs, the extras (sides, seasonings, sauces), the coffee, the rest (other food), the help, the price, and the buzz (crowd, venue, atmosphere, etc). Second, I'll dish out my own set of gongs for "best whatever"... the Golden Goog awards, if you like. Without boxing myself in, I'm thinking of gongs for best scrambled, best omelette, best poached, best benedict, best beans, best hash browns, best coffee, best doughnut, best toast, best pastries, and best muesli. Feel free to add to this list.

As you'd expect, I'll probably start close to home (right now, that's Melbourne), but I'm hoping to spread my wings as time goes by.

Feel free to drop me a line if you've got any news, views or reviews to share on these subjects. I'm especially keen to hear about the latest and greatest brekky spots, just waiting to be (re)discovered. And I love a good argument. So, please, jump right in if you think I've got something wrong.

Maybe I should call this a blegg? No, cancel that thought. Very dorky idea, indeed.

Great website. I always have trouble deciding where to go for breakfas.

My picks are Turtle Cafe in Elwood and Coffee Darling in South Yarra. Kamel in Albert Park deserves a mention too.

I've really only been to one breakfast joint that I thoroughly enjoy, Scampi's Cafe Bar & Bistro. I'd love to hear what you think about it. I'm looking forward over the next week to try out the venues you've rated!
