Favourite Sydney breakfasts
Today I was on Anna Burns' excellent Weekend Lunch show (on FBI 94.5FM) talking about my favourite Sydney breakfast places. I say 'favourite' and not 'best', because as soon as you use that word, you end up baiting people into disagreeing. Favourites are a personal thing.
Mine are (in no order really):
Clipper Cafe, Glebe
Ruby's Diner, Waverley
Cafe Ish, Surry Hills
Baffi & Mo, Redfern
Strangers With Candy, Redfern (although I so easily could have listed Vargabar, Newtown because the raspberry coconut smoothies are awesome, but maybe I'm still a tad cranky that they removed the much-loved potatoes off the breakfast menu).
The fruit salad (pictured above) is from Ruby's Diner and it totally steamrolls over all the sad little versions you see wilting away in plastic containers everywhere. Also, it's a visual reminder of the awesomeness of Ruby's (a place that also does a kick-ass dinner, too).
All this breakfast thinking makes me (almost!) wish I could flash-forward through this breezy lovely Saturday arvo and skip to browsing menus on Sunday morning …
