Went in on a Sunday about 9am and there were a lot of empty tables so we sat near the back wall where they have a board of arts and crafts with various different types of puppets on the wall (these are available for purchase if you feel inclined).
We got the big breakfast and the poached eggs with bacon and avocado. Coffee was good and so was the food, Also got a freshly squeezed juice for the day which was celery, pineapple and orange - very refreshing way to start the day.
By the time we left the place was packed! Overall a good first time experience.

I made this last month and forgot to put it up! So here it here,

In a saucepan melt the ghee and sugar together, allow this to cool slightly.
Add the egg, dates, walnuts and almond meal, mix until well combined.
Press the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Allow the slice to cool in the tin and cut into squares.

First visit and it was a success!
Took us a few extra minutes to find it as we went down the wrong end of Dixon St, alas, finally walking through a very crowded food court we were starting to doubt ourselves if the place was even in here! .... and then like magic as we veered down the bend there it was in all its glory!
Tucked away in the corner amongst all various Chinese food outlets.
Small queue, so we got our order in i had the Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen Noodle with soft boiled egg and my partner got the BBQ Pork Ramen and gyoza to share.
Wow such a thick garlicy broth with oodles and oodles of noodles! Delicious!
My partner and I both agreed that the flavour of the Garlic Tonkotsu was way better that the BBQ Pork. Gyoza was great too.
Such a cheap and cheerful dinner option. I was indeed noodled out!

I have been here a few times and every single time it has been a treat!
After visiting Salerno Gallery for the Sally Higgens - Down the rabbit hole exhibition (just across the road) we proceeded to Pastabella with hungry bellies !
The staff are friendly, although they can take time to come to you to take your order but that is a good thing as sometimes you need that extra time to decide from their vast selection of pasta or the special menu items. Too many good options!
Last visit i trialed the Fettuccine Al Gamberi - Yum!
This place is BYO which is an added bonus.
Desserts are as delicious - try the sticky date!
If you are in the Glebe area and looking for food, look no further! Reasonably priced for their authentic Italian food.
Good food, wine and company always makes a night memorable.

Heard about this place a lot on Instagram so as usual it was a must visit but of course with life commitments you tend to call in on it months are your initial thought of visiting!
We got there 10 minutes to 8am on Saturday (because that's when they open) so of course the place was empty except for the staff which was great coz we got to choose a prime position to sit!
I did not realise that the Kitchen was part of the Koskela warehouse where the owners Russel Koskela and Sasha Titchkosky produce "Australian furniture that is beautiful, functional and durable" (taken from their website) .... will you look at that you learn something new everyday!
We ordered the Sourdough pancakes with Lemon Curd $14, Big Breakfast $20 and Eggs benedict/royale $13. Everything was back to basics, you order at the counter then take a number and a seat and they bring it out to you.
In addition, to the usual breakfast menu they also have pastries/cakes on offer if you are not quite hungry.
The cutlery was in an old tomato tin tub which added the rustic look, food was served in tin plates like the kind you take camping.
Food was sensational! My eggs benedict came on a bun and all the sauce and the egg oozed out goodness! I scraped the plate...literally! Pancakes were divine.
After we had finished breakfast we waiting around till 9am as that was the time Koskela opened so we could peruse the designs.
Families and groups are welcome here, Great way to start the weekend!

Last day of November and it was the day we finally got to meet Kevin Bacon, Bradley and all the other animals that are residents at the The Grounds.
Weather was overcast and sprinkling to start but that did not deter us. Arrived about 8.40 am and parking was scarce but eventually found a spot.
Since having a foot injury i rarely like to walk far even though i should be grateful!
Anywho the place was packed when we got there, so we had to get a buzzer and wait 30 minutes, which was ample time for my niece to visit Kevin bacon and his friends.
It's quite a large area with different carts placed all over the grounds. There's the lemonade stand, the fresh fruit cart, pastry cart and a kids play area.
By the time out buzzer beeped we were both starving! To start i got the Super green juice which no amount of convincing would make my niece try it!
We got the breakfast platter to share which consisted of 2 poached eggs, 2 x toast, smoked ham, diced tomatoes, feta with pesto and avocado. Clean eating to the max! Finished off with hot chocolate and a cappuccino.
Overall it was well worth the wait, sadly i did not get to visit Salt meets Cheese. Alas gives me an excuse to visit again soon!
Here's to breaking Sydney's cafes, restaurants and places to interest one weekend at a time!

Ending up getting the "I need bacon and eggs" as per picture below, twas delicious and nutritious considering the big day we had ahead of us, i needed all the energy i could get!
Great start to our first meal in Melbourne.
