Merricks General Store, Merricks

This morning, after a speedy dash across the Mornington Peninsula, we made it just in time for scrambled eggs at the Merricks General Store, 3458-3460 Frankston-Flinders Road, Merricks, Tel +61 3 5989 8088. It was like eating breakfast in a Country Road homewares catalogue... distressed timber tables... rustic charm... everything just a little bit too perfect. Quite a nice experience, actually.


Most importantly, the food was good. My Merricks Breakfast included a big, steaming pile of scrambles, some nicely grilled bangers and bacon, tasty mushrooms and a generous heap of wilted spinach (instead of tomato). Her Fussiness has some perfectly poached free range eggs with spinach and smoked salmon. No complaints at all, which is quite a rare event. Actually, there was one small complaint about the tea, but she always does that.

MGS (as they call it) caters equally well to old and young. Kids can get rice bubbles, coco pops or nutella on toast (and paper and crayons to unleash their inner Picaso). Adults can wash down a double egg and bacon roll with a few glasses of Rigel Shiraz (from the owners' vineyard and on tasting in store). They also do a nice range of house jams which you can try (on croissants) or buy (to take away).

16/20 "country chic"

You nearly collided with us in your dash - we dashed to brunch at lollabout, Flinders where you can muse over whether to buy the $3,000 surf board or not.

Yikes... How many budding skegs have $3K lying around? I guess if you show enough talent on your zippy board you could securitize your future earnings as a pro-surfer ;)
