Running Out of Good Breakie Places!

16 Sep
 
Through the weekend
Kor and I have been going around places which we think might have good breakies
But we were disappointed. Terribly! I might add. Grrr.

Riders Cafe

On Saturday
We went to Saddle Club cause it was recommended to us by my Mum’s friend
So we thought, why not right? WRONG!
FIrstly. We were greeted very rudely by the waitress
and throughout the whole time we were there.
she gave us an attitude! Horrible service!

Secondly. My pancakes came with the smallest blob of butter and she conveniently left out my maple syrup!
I didn’t even know they were suppose to give it to me
until I saw them giving to another table.
I asked for it and she grumpily went to get me some.
ANGRY!

Well. I would say what Kor had – Eggs Benedict
was the most decent thing we had that day
(not considering my mint tea. haha)
Though I have no idea why they served it with cubed backed potatoes.
Could have served it with some cooked spinach.
Maybe it would have tasted a bit better!

The only thing I really liked was the coaster! haha
and all they needed to do was stamp a horse-shoe on a plain looking one.
See. Simplicity is BEST! *Grins*

Book Cafe

On Sunday
Kor brought me to the Book Cafe that he use to hang out at.

Apparently, their food use to be much better.
I wouldn’t say it was bad.
Their service was alright.
Their food was.. mm.. haha we shall go one by one.

I ordered eggs benedict again. but once again. quite disappointed.
There wasn’t even barely enough hollanaise sauce to go with one part of the egg
not mentioning there were 2 portions. haha
plus. it wasn’t really thick enough to be hollanaise
and a tad bit too sourish. sigh.
but I must say the bread was good. ( :
nice thin multigrain toast!
and I ordered it mainly cause it came with spinach – which made me quite happy
But turns out. the spinach was raw. haha not the cooked ones that I hope for.
So that was another disappointment

Kor ordered the striploin and eggs which was the best dish on the table
obviously he knew what to order! haha
Lucky him. (:
(yes. the steak was covered by the eggs. haha)

Jane ordered the cheese burger
BUT. the patty tasted blend
and the only thing that was good was the cheese melted on the patty. ( :
Well at least something was good on her plate! hehe

the cool thing was kor’s tea cup! hehe

how pretty yea? hehe

well. the most disturbing thing was their salt grinders!
OMG. we only realised after kor and Jane finish using them
and when we told them.
all they could say was ok!
I was thinking they would give like some compensation fo some kind!
BUT NOTHING!
Horrible.
Let me show you what we realised.

so any guesses what this is????
cinnamon?
nutmeg??
WRONG!
it’s salt with iron oxide!
yes. you know your chemistry. it’s RUST!
their grinders were rusting! and they didn’t even realise that it was when they refilled it.
i was totally disgusted!
and my brother said that when he went to the counter.
he saw the others rusting as well!
THEY NEED TO DO SOME UPGRADING!

so these are the two places we won’t be going back for breakfast. ever.
I think I am just too use to hvaing awesome breakfast in Melbourne
Well. Lucky for me. I’m heading there in November!
