Lets just get the elephant out of the room straight away. I mean if you are immature like I am this has to be done. The name of this place is a little ridic yes? It just is. However it is a little cafe and it is on William Street. So I suppose immaturity aside it is a clever name.
One of my indulgences in life is going for breakfast on my own. If you have not done it you should try it. I am baffled often by the revelation that some people are actually too embarrassed to ask for a table for one!! Learn to enjoy your own company peeps. Its the most reliable company you will ever have!
There was an episode of sex and the city where Carrie discovered for the first time the joys of going 'un armoured' as she put it, to lunch on her own. By un armoured she meant without the obvious things to hide behind such as a book or a newspaper. Just being able to sit there, in public, alone with your thoughts. Bliss is what I call this.
So that is exactly what I did this morning. And it was nice. I got the last table which was outside. This was really refreshing as it was quite crisp out and the wind was blowing a little. After a night out this felt awesome on my face. It woke me up and snapped my out of a possible hangover.
I ordered coffee and also Rye Bread with salmon and avocado. I am using a borrowed picture from urban spoon for this blog as the photos I took mysteriously disappeared from my phone, which is disappointing because my meal actually looked far prettier than the one pictured.
The rye bread was actually real rye bread. Not just dark brown bread. You could really taste the rye, it was a little like pumpernickel bread. Filling and healthy. The salmon that was layered on was super fresh to the point that it didn't look smoked. The avocado was perfectly green and exactly the right ripeness. The dish was finished off with rocket and olive oil and once again I was reminded that you do not need a million and one ingredients to make a tasty meal.
The rest of the menu looked really nice also. It was quite original and had dishes that I am sure were only ever served here. The decor of the cafe was very eclectic and there were some nice touches such as lemon and mint in the water jugs. Its those little things that set a place apart in my opinion. Proof that the staff care.
Highly recommended. And for the record great for one.
