I’m not having much luck in the breakfast stakes lately. Firstly, Degani my regular Saturday coffee hangout got taken over by….some people who don’t know how to make coffee. Then I rediscovered Fuel (across from the Moonee Ponds train station) which has excellent coffee, but no proper fruit toast and its sometimes hard to get a table. Today I went to go to Fuel for a coffee and they are closed until well after new years. Then I thought I’d try Little Kitch, but that was closed too.
So I stumbled into Cafe 42. It looks nice from the outside, menu sounds good. The barista looked competent even.
I ordered my usual skinny flat white which arrived quickly. I could tell just by looking at it that it was going to be really average. It moved too much, like it was too watery? Tasted burnt. It was horrible. I ordered a vegie breakfast too, the baked beans were the SPC canned variety with tomato paste mixed into it. I’m not a food connoisseur, I heard someone at another table ask.
What the hell? Why not just give me the canned variety without mixing in the tomato paste? I left them. Eggs were good, toast was average. Hashbrowns were straight from a box. All in all, very very average. Service was fine but they got me offside even before my breakfast arrived with that awful awful coffee.
What a waste of $18.50!
Now I don’t know where to go. Maybe its time to start eating at home like a regular person.
