Brother Baba Budan
|Best coffee I found was at Brother Baba Budan located on Little Bourke St. Excellent cup of strong cappuccino. Couldn't resist buying a bag of the Seven Seeds beans to take back home. Also loved the hanging chairs decorating the ceiling.|
I've been to the QV market before but it was still on my list of places to visit. I love that you can get such a wide variety of food in one place.
|Couldn't resist buying some white anchovies (not in photo)|
|Bratwurst topped with sauerkraut, onion, mustard and relish for breakfast..yum!|
Sonido! 69 Gertrude Steet Fitzroy
Sonido! caught my eye when we were walking down Gertrude St. Couldn't resist going in even though we'd already had breakfast. The menu was interesting and it was a really great atmosphere.
If I had more time I would've loved to come back and have a proper breakfast. But alas, it wasn't meant to be. I'm still glad I got to sample some of the treats.
|We ordered a jug of olletota con queso for two ($8.50 for the hot choco + $2 for the cheese). This is a traditional Colombian hot chocolate that you pour over slices of cheese. The cheese didn't really melt or mix with the chocolate so we ended up drinking hot chocolate with solid bits of cheese which was a bit odd, but not unpleasant. The chocolate itself was excellent and perfect for a cold winter's morning|
A stroll through the crowded Centre Place took me to my lunch destination, The Soup Place.
|Spicy Moroccan chicken soup with slices of bread. A great winter warmer! This place was tiny but was very busy. I loved the flavours of my soup but would have loved more chicken. I wanted to try the mushroom with truffle but it was sold out.|
