There is nothing more perfect than great Melbourne weather + beautiful company + amazing breaky.
On days like this, you could seriously soak in some of Melbourne finest vibes and fall into a beautiful food/coffee induced coma…
As weekends are a feeding frenzy on chapel street, all the best are packed to the rafters, as a result we sat up against the window – which was a blessing in disguise. I could “food-perve” without too much fuss :), and check out talent on chapel street-such a multitasker ;).
Aesthetically beautiful & simple menu:
Smooth, creamy, deliciously & sensual Soy Chai Latte:
Shy had the very simple-sounding beans on toast, it was in fact the most fulfilling and rich marriage of flavours – perfect for the “day after the night before”
I had the free-range poached egg on avocado smeared (amazing) toast with CANDIED bacon… one word: WOW!
Fresh, creamy, and slight delicate “nuttiness” of the sesame seeds were a perfect accompaniment to my soy chai latte.
And did I mention: CANDIED BACON??? wow!!! 🙂
Check out this “poached-poke-ooze”: (drooling. right now!)
Duke, a latin derivative of DUX: meaning leader is a very fitting name for densely populated location for coffee and breakfast.
