Snow Pony, Balwyn

I've always wanted to have brunch at Snow Pony, Balwyn after hearing and reading good reviews regarding the food. There was no doubt that it was a very popular spot, as we had to queue for about twenty minutes in the cold before we eventually got a table.
Here's the mandatory shot of my hot chocolate (I swear I am accumulating enough photos of hot chocolate to publish a photo book).

My choice for the morning was the 'Giddy Up', a beautiful medley of brunch essentials - poached eggs, slow-roasted tomatoes, smashed avocado, buttery mushrooms and double smoked bacon, all resting on a slice of toasted bread. The dish tasted as good as it looked. What set it apart from other similar brunches I had was the bacon. Oh, the bacon. Its smokiness just made it that little bit more indulgent.

A lot of reviews on Urbanspoon raised concerns about their customer service, but I didn't encounter any problems during my time there. I would see how the cash only policy would be an inconvenience, though. On the whole, I thought it was a lovely cafe that served great food.
