The Grounds of Alexandria

The Grounds of Alexandria
20140629_080119
#eggsploringsydney

I’ve been to a lot of places before coming here, but I just want to blog this one first. It just can’t wait.

WHO?

HONESTLY, WHO!? Thought of this amazing concept! The Grounds of Alexandria has it all. It’s a village. Reminding me very much of a ‘horio’, a greek village. From baked goods inside, to flowers outside, to farm animals in that corner, to bread samples in that corner, from homegrown fruit to freshly squeezed lemonade, there is nothing this place is missing. The ambiance upon entering, is just ridiculous. We came early on a Sunday morning, having been warned about how busy it gets. 8am and we were at the front a small cue. Expect this, especially on the weekends. But its worth the wait. And in the meantime, you aren’t standing there in a line. There’s a village to explore.

Let me set the scene for you. At 8am, the cheery staff are setting up their stalls in the gardens. A hello to the new folk, a hello to the regulars, the staff are smiling and are apparently not hung over like the large majority of waiters in Surry Hills. In the far back corner of the grounds, you have the infamous Alexandria Pig. Children petting and squealing with excitement that a café has farm animals and a cubby house to play in while mummy and daddy purchase their freshly baked bread. Move down the path and you are at the florist, where there are flowers are of all colours, shapes and sizes. Spend some time in here, pick up the jars, look at the homemade jams, honeys and utensils and then follow the path and enter the stalls.

 

20140629_081227Lemonade, homemade breads, fresh olives, a thousand types of homemade nuts – from honey almonds or choc macadamia, every delicious good you can think of. Desserts, everywhere, fresh strawberries, toffee apples and vibrant strawberries line the stalls as you make your way back towards the entrance of the café.

You are never short of service at the grounds. Staff that are on the ball, and willing to help. The extensive organic menu is fantastic, allowing you to chop and change and choose your breads and sides (for those of us that are a tad fussy). The gluten free bread, is the best I have had in this fair country of ours. Homemade, well toasted, light and thick. None of this 1cm thickness crispy, tasteless powdery bread.

It is well priced, the food is fresh and organic. There is choice for everyone. Although I have had better eggs in my time, I was so satisfied with the hype up about this place, and that it was meeting expectations, that I hardly even noticed that my tea was bought out after my meal.

Eggalicious
Eggalicious

The only downside to the service, is that with such demand for tables, pushiness with clearing the table is evident – and leisurely chats aren’t able to held at this period of time over the weekends. Nevertheless, take away your quality coffee, which is roasted there on the grounds, and chat outside in the outdoor seating area. A place with a unique concept, has bought together a lot of different ideas together, and has bought it together well. It’s really an outing, more than a breakfast date.

The good things:
+ The ambiance
+ The activities!
+ Kid friendly
+ Fresh, Organic, On Site Produce (in meals and on sale)
+ Roasted On Site Coffee
+ The staff
+ Quick food service
+ Menu choices
+ The selection of breads, nuts, desserts
+ Flowers!

The not so good things:
– The cue
– The feel to have to get out of the restaurant quickly
– Minor details on the table missing; salt & pepper, serviettes

A final note: Take a step into a European village, this is an outing, not a 20 minute brunch date. 8.5/10

Four Ate Five – 485 Crown St

Four Ate Five Interior

Four Ate Five Interior

Holy goat. Who waits in a cue at 9:30am on a Sunday morning for eggs?
I do. #eggsploringsydney

Not too long a go, my friend and I took a pleasant around Macquarie’s chair and then made our way down for Sunday brunch into Surry Hills. I’d seen this place a few months back, looked at their menu, and thought, yep. It’ll be good. And you know what? Yep, it was good.

Four Ate Five is a top quality healthy café that is next door to the infamous O Organic Produce. It seems like they are constantly competing with each other. So, who else would determine whose eggs are better? Me of course.

Poached Eggs on Soy and Linseed

Poached Eggs on Soy and Linseed

Although having to wait in a line, we were still seated where we wanted to be as soon as the doors opened. We were promptly visited with menus by the lovely bubbly waitress, who gave her recommendations on coffees and breakfast options. The menu at Four Ate Five is fantastic. A mix of good, hearty meals, whole grains, eggs, yoghurts, and all things delicious. It’s friendly vibe lets any one and any one be drawn to it. Families and pets are welcome.

After reading through the menu, I decided on my usual (because I am lame like that), while my partner in crime got a breakfast muesli – 5 seed bircher style, I had ‘eye’ food envy to say the least.

5 Grain Porridge

5 Grain Porridge

But with the taste of my breakfast, the perfect poach of my egg – I soon forgot about her bowl of berries and devoured everything on my plate. With a good selection of quality breads to choose from also, and my choice of soy and linseed, I could have eaten an entire loaf.

The café itself is very busy. Although decked out well, wooden chairs, and simplistically rustic, inside made me a little claustrophobic, so being seated outside was spot on. Service when needed, bill delivered to us, and the advice on the coffee – top notch. A hint of honey, with a long black blended with ice – there’s really nothing better. Expect a slight delay in food service, but expect nothing but the best eggs.

Almost as good as a Greek Frappe

The good things
+ The food
+ The menu options
+ The look of the muffins, oh my god!
+ Gluten and lactose free friendly
+ Outdoor and indoor seating
+ The staff

The not so good things
– Cues
– Parking on crown st
– Dogs at my feet

A final note: Sydney eggsplorations, continue like this, and you may blow Perth out of the water. 8.5/10

Eggsploring Sydney

#Eggsploringsydney

MAY! Already. Welcome back to my blog. Having travelled for the last 5 months, I have now returned to Australia to continue my eggsplorations. However, this time, I am in a different city. The big apple of Oz. The city of opportunities. The one and only… Sydney.

Having moved over here, I am a little overwhelmed with the amount of organic, fresh and farm to table type cafes and brunch spots there are here. Its unbelievable! Having written out my “to go” list, I’ve made a teenee tiny little dent within the last 3 weeks, in the 50 + cafes I have to eggsplore. Plans for Syndey are the same as at home in Perth. Run a successful PT business, help as many people as I can, live life to the fullest and enjoy healthy, clean, raw, organic foods as often as possible.

However, I’m taking Running Hearts up a level here. Working out of the brand new Fitness Playground in Surry Hills, (http://www.thefitnessplayground.com.au), I’m not only going to be training people to get them fit and healthy, but I am also taking on a small business enterprise to help educate the population about our toxic environment, detoxification and the importance of it in regards to the human body. Please make welcome my new business, The Wellness Revolution Sydney. I’ll be holding free educational seminars every Thursday of June in Redfern, to share my knowledge and help people understand how our toxic environment, the foods we eat, the water we drink ,the air we breathe in, and the things we apply on our skin, affect our bodies ability to naturally burn fat, regulate mood, digestion, immune, organ function and metabolism. Not only that, but I’ll be focusing on how our blood becomes more acidic when we don’t eat organic and alkaline and how this enhances our bodies susceptibility to illness and disease. Did you know that 95% of illness and disease is lifestyle inflicted? Meaning that we have the chance to avoid them – or turn it around… Find out more at my seminars;

BUT for now, lets return to eggs.
Bondi Wholefoods, North Bondi

It’s splashed all over Instagram, it’s hashtagged all over the globe, it’s the number one hipster hyped up brunch place in Bondi – and it’s pretty decent considering every yogi and their furballs are in there from 6am, every day.

Sometimes, when a place is as busy as Bondi Wholefoods, you expect the service to be slow, and crap, and all over the place. Luckily, that isn’t the case here. Arriving at peak time on a Saturday morning at 10am, we had to wait no longer than 5 minutes for a table. A wee bit excited having come off working a cruise ship for 4 months, I found it hard to stay in my seat prior to ordering because attached the the café itself, is a small section of organic wholefoods. Reasonably priced fruits, vegetables, nuts, proteins and organic products line the shelves of Bondi Wholefoods – making it clear that this place is serious about good nutrients in what they serve. A definite plus.

Bondi Wholefoods

Bondi Wholefoods

The café is crowded, expected. Tables out the front, a small café bench as you enter, and a court yard out the back with large cushioned chairs and funky stools. Every table is cleared immediately, and the place is buzzing. Surprisingly, you don’t have to yell at each other to try and hear each other either. Even with all these people around, the waiters are still relaxed. Wearing no uniform, they are laid back, helpful, and take orders quickly. Placing your water down on the table, and ensuring you have your knives and forks ready for brunch, the staff remain chilled throughout the entire process. Even the girl at the till, who is working around the clock and trying to get the payment line smaller (and failing due to the popularity of the restaurant) is well composed and friendly.

The menu at Bondi Wholefoods is impressive. From acai bowls, to poached eggs, to quinoa porridges, raw treats, fresh salads.. its kind of hard to choose. With options for vegans and vegetarians, there’s something on the menu for everyone. Maybe not children though? It’s less of a family place and more of a “I’m growing up and in my mid 20 – 30’s lets get organic brunch” place. The pricing for Sydney is probably a tad over budget, but in comparison to Perth, it’s the eggact same. Opting for something close to my usual, I ordered two poached eggs with the tomato avocado basil smash.

Poached Eggs with Avo

Poached Eggs with Avo

Bam. 2 well poached farm fresh eggs. The avocado was ripe and substantial and the gluten free bread was good quality. Not burnt, not undercooked, and 3 slices, not 1 or 2. Good. Runny eggs need more bread. The tomatoes were raw, and a little hard, but nevertheless, still delicious. But yet, there was something missing. The basil perhaps not strong enough, the tomatoes perhaps not soft enough. I just can’t seem to put my finger on it. However, In comparison to what my partner in crime ate, my eggs seemed to cause a little food envy. The quinoa porridge was somewhat tasteless and a little burnt for the price on offer.

Eggs and Quinoa

Eggs and Quinoa

The good things:
+ The menu
+ The selection of raw treats
+ The quality of the food
+ Kitchen service
+ Staff personas and willingness to help
+ The small shop attached

The not so good things:
- Parking near by
– I don’t fancy dogs near me at breakfast
– Cost
– No bookings

A final note:

Decent, but theres better places to be hyped up about. 6.5/10

Eggsplorations of Perth City has taken us far and wide. From Fremantle to Hillarys, to Doubleview to Maylands, we have successfully been to and eaten eggs at 65 cafes. Some of which, have been visited more than once.  From eggs undercooked, to tea cups without strainers, to burnt toast, to perfect pumpkin mash and giant avocados, we have truly eggsperienced the best and worst of the brunch scene in this fair city.

And its all come down to this.

Typika, the place where hipster hype up lived up to it’s name.

Typika

Typika

Known for its artisanal coffee roasting, has deservedly placed number one in #eggsploringperth. Ok ok, I know it claims to source the worlds finest green coffee beans and that the passion and skill of the person roasting these beans is critical.  Yeh, Whatever, I don’t even drink coffee! But what I can claim, is that I am more than certain this philosophy is embedded within the staff at the counter, at the bar, in the kitchen and on the floor, because the service at Typika is tip top. Upon entering, you are greeted with a smile and taken to a seat as soon as possible. Ordering from the extensive menu isn’t an issue. From chocolate peanutbutter pancakes, to zucchini haloumi fritters, the waiters can  happily take an order without having to use their snazzy technology and actually remember even the fussiest of orders.

Menu at Typika

Menu at Typika

Typika’s kitchen service is fantastic. For a place that is constantly busy, there is no delay from ordering to receiving your fresh and tasty meal. With options for the health conscious, and not so health conscious, the kitchen staff are on the ball with chopping and changing orders for younger ones, or just annoying people, like myself.

Number one Eggs!

Number one Eggs!

The quality of the food is superb. Fresh, perfectly poached eggs, every time. A delicious range of breads that are well toasted and aren’t smothered in butter, fresh or wilted spinach in lemon and EVOO and tomatoes roasted so well that they may as well call themselves artisan tomatoes. To. Die. For!

Not only that, but considering you’re in Claremont, the prices of this place are pretty decent. With a large sized fresh free range eggs on toast for just over $11 and summer fruit bowls for $12 a pop, the high society prices that are expected of Claremont are given a miss here, super.

Roast those Beans

Roast those Beans

The ambiance of this place is impressive. For somewhere so busy, we have never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a table. There are no bookings taken on the weekends, and there is limited outdoor tables. However, the vacinty itself is huge. Concrete floors, some shared tables, some not shared tables, some funky chairs, some boring chairs, some cool light bulbs, some not so cool light bulbs, some fun walls, some not so fun walls… Typika has nailed it all on the head. It’s not over done, its spacious, you aren’t sitting on top of each other, there is plenty to look at, (including the roasting area), the kitchen is at the back of the restaurant, so you aren’t distracted by staff members walking around the floor, and the indoor trees don’t fall in your face.

Pretty Things

Pretty Things

The hipster hype up splashed on facebook, instagram, and urbanspoon, is well deserved. A place where you don’t have to get up to get your water, you don’t have to get up to get your pepper AND a place you don’t have to get up to order. It’s a spot you can take your mum, your friends, your partner, your kids. Just not your dogs. It’s a good place. I just wish the size of the juice glasses were bigger.

The good things:
+ The food – fresh and tasty
+ Price
+ Location
+ Ambiance
+ Menu
+ Staff!
+ Kitchen service

The not so good things:
– No bookings
– Juice sizes and prices

A final note:

Gusto

Gusto, Angelo St

Gusto, Angelo St

Well! As much as I am all for the North Side of Perth… The South Side has done a pretty good job on taking hold of the egg titles in the Top 5.

Gusto is a small, and busy café on Angelo St in South Perth. I am not being biased putting this place so high, just because there is Greek Doughnuts and Housemade Greek Sweets in the cabinet. Although… kataifi (walnut filled shredded filo pastry) for a post breakfast treat is probably the best thing I could ever think of.

Gusto has a huge a large breakfast menu – to which you can chop and change to suit your liking. Sides of avocado, sides of haloumi, sides of mushrooms, tomatoes.. salmon, you name it, it’s there. Gusto has options for the health conscious, with tasty home made gluten free breads and goats cheese with quinoa crunch. There’s also the options that aren’t so healthy like the home made crumpets and French cinnamon toast. Deeeelish.

Menu at Gusto

Menu at Gusto

Considering how busy Gusto is, the service we had was remarkable. Although bookings on weekends can’t be made for small tables, arriving on a Sunday before 9am will still get you a seat in the café. Even if the majority of people in there are wearing lycra. It is small, but it is not over crowded with too many tables or fancy things. It’s simplistic and it works. You aren’t on top of each other, and you can hear those at your table as you aren’t bombarded with people up at the counter yelling unnecessarily for their coffee orders. The staff at Gusto are chilled, they know how to handle pressure and are there to make your breakfast experience a good one.

Interior at Gusto

Interior at Gusto

Ordering up at the counter may encounter a small cue, but hey, the food comes out remarkably quick, so this isn’t a problem. The only problem at the counter is the array of delicious looking and smelling treats starting at you in the face. Melting moments, home made cakes, muffins, cookies.. more than difficult to resist. And you know what. Don’t resist. Buy something. Cause everything is awesome.

Gusto, South Perth

Gusto, South Perth

The food itself at Gusto is fantastic. Delicious, well presented, for a good price and decent size. What more could you ask for? I suppose you could ask for a great day of activities afterwards. Like going for a foreshore bike ride? or maybe a nice run at Kings Park? or even heading down to the Perth zoo afterwards?
Oh wait. You can do that. Because Gusto is literally 5 minutes away from all these things. This little gem is also kid and pet friendly, meaning you can go to your next activity place afterwards with out any hassle. Parking is all around the hood, so no problems there either.

Gusto Breakfast

Gusto Breakfast

Expect good quality food and service at Gusto. Water is brought to you, pepper is on the table, food is brought out quick, and there is service with a smile. The service may be too good? Or they maybe trying to get you out quickly for the next table to come in, because the only thing you can really fault is how quick they are to clean up after you. The bread is superb, the eggs are perfectly poached and the atmosphere is chilled and just right for a Sunday morning eggsplore.

The good things:
+ Great menu
+ Well priced
+ Fresh food and great taste
+ Large serves
+ Lots of options
+ Kid and Pet friendly
+ Great service
+ Quick kitchen service

The not so good things:
– Small
– No bookings available weekends
– Busy busy!

“Famously good food”
Finally, a place that lives up to expectations.

I am MORE than certain people get sick of my snapchats that show a picture of a perfect breakfast and a caption that says “eggs.” These snapchats are generally always at this place too. Sayers is a cafe that I visit frequently. It is close by, has quick kitchen service and is just bloody delicious. It may be a predictable place to have in Perths top 3, but it is more than well deserved! With a range of healthy options, such as green tea sourdough bread, quinoa and linseed bread, to smoke salmon tartlets, Sayers has a fantastic menu to suit anyone’s picky breakfast likes. You can add or remove items from the menu and it includes things like cinnamon saffron doughnuts and even half sized serves for those that don’t want to fit in an epic sized meal to start the day. Sayers provides a decent sized meal, for a good price.

Sayers WILL be busy, no matter what day or time you go. Weekends are hectic, so get in early if you want a table. Bookings are available only on weekdays. On a weekday, you will be able to get a seat either indoor or outdoor, and you generally only have to wait a short period of time when you order. The time you order to the time you get your meal is quick – even if it’s crazy busy. Props to the kitchen for never making me wait!

The food here is glorious. They don’t stick butter everywhere, the bread is always warm and perfectly toasted, and eff! The eggs are delightful. Never cold, never undercooked. They are always spot on. They are clearly fresh and free range and work well with all the combinations on the menu.

Poached Goodness (image: chompchomp)

Poached Goodness (image: chompchomp)

Inside Sayers is super crowded, and tables are quite close to each other. The decor is simple and hip, nothing over done (just like their toast) and nothing too out of the ordinary. Inside though, the tables are really quite small. I also had an incident once.. because the tables are a little and that plates so large… that when I cut into my bread… my plate flipped on top of me. Haha. In saying this, the waitress was over in an instant, cleaned up my egg mess, and I had a new meal within 5 minutes. I was also lucky the eggs didn’t pop on me when it flipped :P Outdoors is pleasant, you can hear each other talk, and even though tables are placed in a walk way, you don’t feel crowded or on top of each other.

The service at Sayers is fab – they must treat their staff right, because those working in there are always familiar and are good at recognising customers. They also are always smiling. Positive energy all round! They bring you knives and forks, and salt and pepper. You may even get lucky and have them bring you water too. Sayers is deserves the hype it receives. And the cakes taste as good as they look.

Moore and Moore in Fremantle is a local art gallery come café, that uses local Fremantle produce (and coffee beans!). This is one of my most visited breakfast spots – and it’s because the food never disappoints. From Yallingup Organic Fruit Toast to the best value poached eggs on toast on the South Side of the river, Moore and Moore is a top quality brunch location. And, you can have eggs at any time of the day.

Moore and Moore has been awarded a commendation of ‘the use of change of a listed heritage space’ as it has cleverly been converted into a contempary art gallery that focuses on emerging artists. The café is spacious, and welcoming, and has a décor that I love. Its not too cluttered, and there isn’t too much random crap shoved in nooks and crannies of the café. Its cool, calm and has a laid back atmosphere, as Fremantle should. Rustic bikes, japanese fans, giant umbrellas, hanging pots, old signs.. that kind of thing is cleverly placed around the large open space that is Moore and Moore. And with indoor and outdoor seating, we have never had trouble finding a seat for breakfast, even on a Sunday. It’s also kid friendly, with a play area around the back.

The menu at Moore and Moore is superb. Pumpkin mash, smashed avocado, salmon, egg pots, you name it, this place has it! There’s choices for vegans, vegos, dairy and gluten intolerant folk and hey, its also affordable for those on a student budget. For $11.50 you can get two freshly and well poached eggs on toast, with a large side of tomato and spinach.

Not only that, but the drinks are freshly squeezed, quickly done, not loaded with sugar and the best thing, well priced for a cup that is bigger than the size of a greek espresso glass. Snaps guys!

The ambiance at Moore and Moore is awesome. It is a perfect place to chill and chat with friends or family. It’s not too loud, and even in the heat of summer, the concrete floors keep the place cool enough to enjoy a hot pot of Tuscan eggs!

It is unfortunate, that the service and Moore and Moore is a bit hit and miss. If menus are not on the table, you generally have to find them yourself. As with cutlery, if there is none on the table, the wait staff may not be tuned in to bringing you anything – in typical Fremantle fashion, things are lax. Up at the counter, staff are constantly under pressure with orders, you will have to wait 5minutes or so to order your food, and you may not always receive a smile when you order gluten free bread. But, then, there is times, when the staff behind the counter will do anything to accommodate your breakfast to your liking.

Nevertheless, the food is delivered quite quickly, is always as ordered and is fantastic tasting. It’s obviously fresh, and the bread is not smothered in butter, and has been cooked just at right time, because its still warm when you pop open your freshly poached eggs. You will want to delve into them straight away, but just be wary that you may have to rise from your comfortable couch every now and then to grab something a waiter may have missed. Just hope it isn’t the knives and forks.
