joe's garage  
mel happened to be in town last month for her friend's wedding as well, so three tired chickadees with no make-up, pronounced eyebags and dark eye circles, met up for breakfast one sunday morning on brunswick street. :)

it was a pretty darn awesome breakfast! joe's garage was chockers with people chowing down all sorts of yummy breakfasts and the air was humming with the buzz of lively chatter. by sheer luck, we managed to plonk ourselves on a corner table for three and soon, our voices joined the humming vibration too. :)

boy, were we glad we chose to share two portions instead of ordering one each. the pancake was humongous. and delicious. and a whole lot of things that i have no words to describe. it came piping hot and really, really hit the right spot. the pancake was so fabulous that the eggs florentine paled a little in comparison when they were served after we'd wolfed down most of the pancake, though they were quite good as well. it just wasn't fair that the pancake was served first. :)

we could almost finish the eggs florentine. only a little bit of toast was left over. so a third breakfast set would have killed us totally. :p

i'm kinda falling off the chair because i'm supremely sleepy... i was meant to go to bed about 3 hours ago... but i've just gotten news that i'm going to be a godmother in october! am excited beyond words. :) :) :)

good night, y'all!

feelin': excitedexcited

Pretty darn awesome is right!! Drooling at the pancake and egg follow up. Seriously - my mouth's watering.

Maybe I should go cook my dinner!

Something random just came into my head re: coffees - long macs here is a double cafe latte. I had a hard time adjusting when I first started working in Perth.

*end random tangent*

is that a perth thing?

Yep - perth has a totally different coffee culture compared to Melba. If you say dry or wet (frothy or less frothy) cappuccino here, most baristas look at you blankly.

I had one customer who was so happy that I understood her order until she found out I had worked in Melba ;)
