Melbourne Sunday Brunch [MSB] in Ripponlea over the weekend. I’ve lived down the road for a year and never been to the Ripponlea Gardens, one day it will happen. For now, we can make do with Ripponlea Food & Wine.
Good all round breakfast menu, coffee was decent, food was good! I had multigrain with poached eggs, beetroot relish, avocado, goats cheese and dukkah. mmm can’t say no to dukkah (a spice mix made with sesame seeds, crushed nuts and cumin, just incase you were wondering!).And I’m not usually a big fan of beetroot but this relish was good! Click here to check out the rest of their brekkie menu.
The interior was really rustic and service was lovely too. Eloquently described on their website as “eclectic ambience” which I would happily agree with. Good service is under rated these days. Coming from a hospitality background it’s so welcome to get a genuine smile!
My partner in crime had The Ripper, which is like their version of a big brekkie. It was impressive to say the least. Wait for it. Berkshire bacon – thyme buttered mushrooms – cherry tomatoes – smashed avo – poached eggs – sourdough toast – potato rosti. I heard it went down a treat.
I was also eyeing off their walnut and fig loaf with almond butter. But the angel on one shoulder won the battle and I kept right away from that gloriousness. I guess I have an excuse to go back now.
[I just realised that I don’t have any pretty pictures to show you. Apologies. I can’t bring myself to take photos of my food when I am out in public. Confidence issues. I’ll work on it.]
Hope everyone gets to enjoy a bit of sunshine today 🙂 xx
