Room 10, Potts Point
My first introduction to Room 10 in Potts Point was via Twitpic. Last week, Good Living contributor Carli Ratcliff snapped an image, pitched it onto Twitter and talked up the new cafe's "cracking brekky" and "sensational brews".
Only three weeks old, this XS-sized joint is a new venture for Daniel Jackson, who you may recognise from the Clipper and Clover cafes.
Room 10 is a much tinier operation – the small-scale means that stools double as tables, with the menu just as compact. You can order toast with sides – I had Quinoa, Soy & Linseed Sourdough ($4), with ready-to-slather portions of Avocado ($3) and Tomato ($2). (You can also tip on some Prosciutto and Ricotta if that's how you like to play the toast game.) To crowd the table/stool even more, I had Fresh-squeezed Blood Orange Juice and the Breakfast Rice ($10.50) – a nice pile-up of banana, stewed rhubarb and honey. (Confession: my not-so-sharp eyesight originally thought the menu said "Breakfast Pide", something I would love to see on a table soon.)
You can find the cafe down the quiet end of Llankelly Place – look out for the small (what other size would it be?) Art Nouveau sign that simply says "10".
Room 10, 10 Llankelly Place, Potts Point (no phone yet, but open every day)
