I’m pretty used to the Sydney temps these days, but when you’re not dressed for it (as in, wearing as little clothing as possible), it’s a bit of an ordeal for a Newfie girl. When I got to the resto, after downing about a litre of water, I noticed a canine a few feet away. Normally, I’m not a fan of animals in restos (it’s gross; am I wrong here?) but M and I agreed that this pathetic-looking pooch pretty much summed up how all of Sydney was feeling that day.
Margaret ended up ordering the Big Breakfast – I think – which consisted of bacon (back bacon) 2 eggs and (sourdough) toast for something ridiculous like $8. This is a bargain, folks. I also love how Aussies tend to add a grilled tomato to breakfast – that’s my kinda garnish.
I was feeling eggs and smoked salmon of some kind, so I went for the scramble with spinach. It was delicious. I felt like shoving the whole thing between those two slabs of Turkish toast and making an awesome sambo, but I erred on the side of conservative, and simply had my pile of eggs with a touch of toast.

Australians are serious about their coffee. I once ordered an iced coffee and received a glass of frosty coffee topped with about two scoops of vanilla ice cream. I wanted cold coffee, not a calorie fix! Anyway, on this occasion, I ended up with a frappucino-y type-thing, which sated my fix for both caffeine and frosty.
That being said, I recall by b-fast bill being about $26 for the eggs/java, so l likely won’t head back to this spot again. And in Sydney, why would you – when there are so many options for bfast right around the corner.
