I was advised that I HAD TO GO HERE … HAD TO

So I went … I am not too sure what I can say … it is a total experience. The menu is MASSIVE and filtered by categories such as ‘Garlic Vs Honey’ and ‘From the Stockyard’.

I have read the reviews on Urban Spoon and Tripadvisor (with Tripadvisor being rather more positive than Urban Spoon, maybe most people on TripAdvisor are tourists and in great holiday moods?).

But next time I am near I will likely go again, yep .. It could be my guilty, guilty pleasure.

North Cafe

Oh yes, another Melbourne cafe….but this one is a nice change…the Decaf coffee is good ( very hard to find) and I did not get a sneer when I asked for it.

They serve a small-ish menu of straigh forward breakfast food, which looked great as it went past us to other tables when deciding.

My eye was caught by the Rueben Sandwich, something I had not seen on a menu around Melbourne before.

I decided to try it, I do love the sauerkraut!! Even if it made me ill when I was in Prague…had to get used to all that Vinegar and dumplings.

Hellenic republic revisited

We went back…. After trying the breakfast at Hellenic over a year ago we had not been back.

But for my birthday this year Greg took me there as a treat … And it was really lovely.

We had simple fare, poached eggs with sides of sausage, bacon and chickpea and tomato stew with feta … The quality was really high and there was not a smear left on either plate.

Being a birthday something sweet was required and it did not disappoint … Greg and I shared a custard and filo roll … With the staff providing a piece of baklava with a candle for the occasion.

It was so nice we went back this weekend as well. Looks like it could be a new regular spot.
