One blue and yellow Saturday morning, where Mollison street meets Boundary street a magical treehouse awaits hungry guests. Step through the glass windows and let your eyes roll over the wooden pillars to see a dining level above, wooden chairs and tables adorn with colourful tin containers and salt-pepper shakers.
As I waited for Pooch, I was approached several times by the friendly hosts concerned for my empty bench top. It wasn’t long before my good friend bounced in.
We started breakfast with a fragrant and strong cappucino, and a delicate soy chai latte sweetened with organic honey.
Next, Pooch ordered the Little Pig – tender cider-braised pork belly rested on a rich celeriac puree served with a sunny egg, sweet yet acidic poached pear and apple jelly, and finished off with a sprinkling of flowers.
For me, The Far-Away Tree – let your teeth crack through the crisp bagel exterior only to reach the soft warm smoked tomato bread, enriched by the thick and creamy herb cherve, fresh avocado and tart, sweet sun-dried tomatoes.
A warm and relaxed atmosphere, approachable waiters and a unique menu to dare the breakfast classics such as eggs benedict. A beautiful breakfast to start the day.
