Cafe - Porgie and Mr Jones
Very yum! With everything on the menu sounding good, it was very hard to decide what to get. We eventually settled on the big breakfast and the banana bread to share.
The scrambled eggs in the big breakfast fresh and just set, very good with the buttered rye bread. The avocado was smashed with some black pepper and lemon juice which provided a nice creaminess to go with the smoky bacon. Roasting the tomatoes intensified the sweetness and perfect for cleansing the palate between items. The Thyme buttered mushrooms rounded things off, but I would have prefered it to be more garlicky for more of a zing.
The banana bread was served with lashings of marscapone and sliced banana, topped with berry compote and crushed pistachios. The berry compote gave it enough tartness to balance the marscapone, with the crushed pistachios giving some textureal contrast and a nuttiness that went well with bananas.
We're definitely coming back, especially since it is so close to the Booroondara Farmers' Market :)
