I’ve long not been a fan of eggs. They smell like eggs, they’re goopy, and I can’t get past the smell in order to eat them!
And so, I didn’t eat eggs.
Until last year, when I branched out. And ate a couple of hard boiled eggs
And then a few more.
And now I have some cooked for lunches the next two days.
So, I used o go to Goldberg’s on Darby Street Newcastle all the time. I have memories of playing Euchre with Rish and his parents there after a day at the beach during high school. With a mini Pochacco deck of cards.
I was so happy with the breakfasts we got there over the weekend. A HUGE fruit salad for me, pancakes for Rish, and bacon and eggs for our visiting friend.
We’re spoilt for choice in the hipster Mecca of Newcastle :)
An interesting breakfast excursion, with their coffee machine not initially working very well, and them putting bacon rather than fruit on the French Toast. But yum, once it all came together.
(the fruit that SHOULD have been on the French Toast)
A.. “Well done”?? omelette.
The day after the Global Atheist Convention, Rish and I went with a couple of Sydneyites to The Hardware Sociéte, tucked away on Hardware St, Melbourne, for breakfast. Breakfast extended to 11:30, awesomely for a Monday, but they are very strict with that as the cut-off time.
Rish started with an amazing mocha, basically an espresso shot, with a jug of hot chocolate. The hot chocolate itself came as a clump of chocolate in a cup, with about two cups worth of hot chocolate in the side mug. Ultra-sweet!
My soy latte was at a perfect drinkable temperature, and awesome. Two went down quite welcomely.
Rish selected one of the versions of baked eggs, with chorizo and romanasco, while Ash had the (ultra rich) baked eggs, with sausage, pesto and olives. She didn’t make it through, though you could blame it on starting with the hot chocolate!
I ate “Le Sandwich”, while Mike had my second choice, sardines on toast
The Hardware Sociéte was one of those place I’d never have found without Foursquare, and the fact it was recommended by my food blogger contacts on there.
What’s the best place you’ve found via your online connections?
