ps cafe  
this is the long-awaited-for breakfast entry!

it was the sunday before my dental operation. i'd done a fantastic dinner at garibaldi on the friday just past by then, and definitely needed a great breakfast to complete my mission to eat well before dental torture. i'd say breakfast is actually my favourite meal of the day. i love breakfasts!

so i managed to drag one of my oldest pals, stryke, out to brekkie with me on this beautiful sunday morning (ok, it was about 2pm but it was still sunday morning to me). i've known stryke for about 17 years now. we've been brothers for the most part of that. we've once concluded that i somehow morph into a guy when i hangout with him and we're more like brothers instead of siblings. ha!

i'd been wanting to get my little ass to ps cafe for awhile. what better time to do it than for my favourite meal of the day? i've heard good things about their dinner menu and service as well, so that's for exploration on another day.

after getting a little lost driving round and round the little network of roads in that area, we finally got there. brunch crew are apparently not the same as the dinner crew, which explains the slightly slow service. my berry tea came with loads of assorted fruit nestled at the bottom of my tall glass - very yummy to drink the chilled tea and munch on strawberries, blueberries and raspberries at the same time.

stryke's pork loaf was a bit of a let down. we both expected a pork loaf to be a much more meat-substantial portion. i also felt the pork was a little dry. nothing outstanding at all. stryke reckons he'd be happy with this meal if he was a goat. the description in the menu certainly didn't hint at the fact that it was such a green dish.

my poached eggs on portobello stack was absolutely fantabulous. eggs were poached nicely (though they could have been slightly runnier) and went beautifully with the mushrooms. i love mushrooms. i love eggs. the other good stuff on the plate include grilled tomatoes, bacon and spinach. exactly the sort of breakfast i used to make for myself, except i'd add sliced baby potatoes fried in butter with garlic on top of all that.

the outdoor seating area is quite nice, if it isn't a hot or stuffy day. fabric chairs are wicked to lounge in, and feel a little like hammocks. the entire establishment exudes a raw but chic style which is very charming.

quite a pricey breakfast it was, at about $60 for 2. while i felt that my share was worth the indulgence, that pork loaf thing needs to be taken off the menu.

feelin': sleepysleepy

wow, so near? you should go have a looksee! :)

ps. the toilet wasn't kept very clean on a sunday. looks like they had a busy night on saturday and didn't clean up properly. :P

tried going there a few times, they are closed during the day darn it!

Ok I shall remember the tip on the toilet. But that so not good manz

i think brunch is only on weekends, and last order is at 3pm. :)

yes, it's a shame about the toilet. it's not horrendous, but for an establishment charging this kind of prices, it's not quite good enough. i think the breakfast crew quite slack. haha.

love the sugar shot - is that vanilla pods in there? And the poached egg looks weird ;)
JV: eatdrag0nette on August 27th, 2006 07:40 am (UTC)
i was wondering what was in there with the sugar too... could be vanilla pods but i couldn't tell. they were rather misshapen. :P i thought they were broken bits of star anise or something...

i thought the eggs were cute. teehee! i hadn't seen such neatly shaped poached eggs before.
