The Galleon, St Kilda

The thing that's attached to the typewriter. Little animal with a ball. Little animal, small... Creeps about, not a rat.
Bubble, AbFab

If bubble you crave, then get yourself down to The Galleon, 9 Carlisle Street, Tel +61 3 9534 8934, where they serve it with squeak, and a big fat banger, on toast. Or sans banger, if you prefer. Bursting with peas, corn, and other items of mystery mush, it looked very satisfying.


Last time I was here I had the sweet potato hash cakes. This time I went for eggs benny, with ham and spinach, and a hash cake on the side. And a wise choice it was, even if I do say so myself. The eggs were good. The bagel was better than a muffin. The hollandaise was thick and creamy. A very respectable, if slightly unconventional, interpretation of the classic benedict.

The coffee was also very respectable. Well above average. As were the staff. A little quirky, like Bubble. But not nearly as stupid. Not stupid at all, actually.

The only problem with The Galleon is the lack of ventilation. On a hot day, you really need to go dressed in speedos and thongs. Any more clothing and you'll start to sweat. Someone did try to improve things by ripping a hole in the ceiling, but even that hasn't quite fixed the problem.

I have been reading your blog for a long time! I adore the idea of breakfast.
I was recently in NY and had Eggs Benedict in Balthasar in Soho. Apparently they are quite famous there. Have you tried them?
I enjoyed them very much. Ideal egg and crunchy bacon!

The Galleon is fast becoming my favourite purveyor of Eggs benedict (beating los chicas). Perfectly cooked bagels and eggs, and that hollandaise...

76The staff operate on the same level of service as Greasy Joes, I am unsure when grunge suddenly incorporates smug distain, sorry that customers put a dent in your day.

I love the Gallion, the staff are sweet and friendly. The coffee is amazing. I wouldnt waste my time going anywhere else on aclan st and letting an english backpacker ruin my coffee cravings.

I love the "my nannas kicthen" feel.
