When my friends from Canberra told me of their impending weekend in Sydney I suggested we meet up for brekkie.
Having not hung out at Wahroonga before but knowing how busy the village gets, the roads were packed with cars and finding a parking spot can be challenging at peak hours.
The cafe is located in a location which was previously a butcher's shop, hence the very apt name. You can still see remnants of the butcher artefacts hanging in the cafe and the rugged walls are part of the original architecture ( I assume).
This place is packing it in and I loved the vibe! It was family friendly, yet hip!
We decided to sit outside which was located at the rear of the cafe and there were lovely herb beds surrounding the tables. It felt a little like a green house. There was even a chilli plant sprouting right behind where I was seated.
Our breakfast orders were:
Butcher's feed of eggs, mushrooms, tomato, house beans, spicy sausage, black pudding and bacon with sourdough. Thumbs up from J!
Warm marinated forest mushrooms with fresh rocket, shaved Parmesan, and a poached egg on sourdough. T said it was delicious!
One pan bacon and eggs with house made tomato sauce on sourdough. This was my dish and I knew it would not be served in the actual pan (after reading a couple of blog posts) but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The eggs were perfectly cooked, there was life in the yolks and I loved the yolks oozing all over the plate. I used the crisply toasted sourdough to mop up! Yummy!!!
We also ordered a couple of smoothies and our choice was Pear and Cinnamon. It's a combination I haven't had before and it was delicious! There was a slight grittiness to the texture of the smoothie due to the pear and just enough cinnamon to taste but not enough to overwhelm the smoothie. Loved it!
And I can honestly say they have a good barista too. I had a very good cup of coffee to boot!
So glad I finally got here. Love the place and I would like to say that I will return and perhaps try out their lunch menu next time.
