For once, I felt like something else other than hot chocolate. This invigorating blend of grapefruit, orange and ginger juice was the perfect start to my day.
We ordered a mix of breads and spreads to share. The two types of bread that were served were the common loaf and the sourdough wholemeal. Both breads were fresh and beautiful, with the sourdough tasting a little more acidic and dense than the other. We paired the breads with some olive oil and hazelnut dukkah.
We also ordered some house churned butter which was so amazing we ended up getting another serve. It had an unforgettable taste and texture, as it was one of the smoothest, creamiest and lightest butter I've ever tasted.
We also decided to get some cured meats for a heavier and more savoury pairing, and this included pickled ox tongue and coppa (a cold cut made from the muscles of pork shoulder or neck).
Last but not least, we shared a plate of anchovy toasts with creamy egg yolk. I've always thought of anchovies as 'cheap' food but I was quite pleasantly surprised by these tasty little bites. These were slightly different, with the anchovies embedded within, but crunchy and tasty nonetheless.
I loved the food and their unique focus and philosophy. We all agreed that it was a very enjoyable breakfast with great customer service from possibly the loveliest waiter ever. I would definitely recommend a visit, regardless of whether you have a small or large group as there is ample seating space. If you're lucky, you might catch a whiff of freshly baked bread being carted from the kitchen.
