The Place:

You can sit inside or outside.  What an awesome view from the outside area where the smell of the crisp ocean air envelopes you.  The atmosphere is pretty relaxed.  They have all sorts of options from the menu.  You can order the brekkie type dishes or a salad, steak, curry or a plate of chips. There are vegetarian, gluten free and seafood options or you can chose from the counter food.   Feel like a wine with your meal, check, this place is licensed.

The Service:

Despite being really busy, the service was attentive, friendly and efficient. There was a steady flow of eat-in and take-away customers during our visit.

The presentation:

The food arrived hot, quickly and was nicely plated.  It was a nice touch with chives to the side and a sprinkling of parsley on top.

  • The Benedict – was delicious.  It was great that you could chose either ham or bacon.
  • The Muffins – they were crisp and warm.
  • The Eggs – Free Range.  Perfectly cooked and runny.
  • The Spinach – was and extra side I ordered.  It was cooked in garlic and added a delicious flavour to the overall dish…..and the beauty is I think they forgot to charge me for it!
  • The bacon – was well cooked.
  • The hollandaise – was homemade, rich and creamy.
  • The Hash – it was homemade with shredded potato.  It was light and crisp.

Would we go again?

Yes, I really enjoyed it here.

Scorecard:

Style: Classic 6/10.

Taste: 8/10. The taste was really good, full flavoured.

Originality: 6/10 – It’s the pretty standard selection of either Salmon or Bacon.

Value: 6/10. It’s quite pricy. The Benedict (with ham or bacon) Montreal Florentine are all $18 each.  The sides are ok – range from $2 to $6.
