This week I’m going to let you all in on a badly kept secret.. Bluebird Espresso . In an ideal world this would be my own private café.
It’s just down the road from my house and the entire breakfast menu seems like it was lovingly crafted for my own personal taste.
The staff are friendly and it has quickly become one of my favourite café’s and I’ve only been there once. Well played Bluebird.. well played.
You have many choices when it comes to seating; out the front watching the world pass by, inside with the buzz of the coffee machines and people buying pastries or in the secluded back garden with faux grass everywhere. Naturally, we headed to the back garden to sit in the (shaded) sun.
Amie and I couldn’t pick what to have – the menu was perfect in each and every way. We decided to share the Roasted tomatoes on sourdough with buffalo mozzarella, basil and avocado plus the toasted Brioche with mushroom, a poached egg, rocket, and a balsamic glaze.
Each meal was perfect. I can’t fault anything. All the food was as fresh as it could possibly be with the right amount of all the sides. The coffee was good, on par with Melbourne’s high standards.
We lingered for a very long time after the meal and drank coffee, chatted about spending a wild Saturday night in pickling vegetables then proceeded to discuss how un-exciting we sounded. Maybe that’s how you know you’re an actual adult – when pickling stuff gets you excited.
I highly recommend Bluebird if you are after a great brunch, or even lunch. Their burger menu looked very impressive (it was actually a hard decision whether to go for brunch or a burger!)
I would recommend going a little bit earlier than usual if you go on a weekend – rumor has it they get quite busy at 10am on a Saturday/Sunday.
Melbourne – have you been here?! What did you think? Or are there any other places I should try out?
Everybody else, what is your go to brunch meal you order when you go out?
