Over the weekend, Mr Ladybird and I headed to Brown Sugar in Bondi to try out somewhere new for our traditional weekend brunch. We have our favourite haunts that we frequent time and time again, but with the weather so gorgeous we decided to head to Bondi to enjoy the sunshine.
We arrived at around 10am to a bustling and funky little cafe. We settle in and order, only for our food to come out within 10 minutes - now that's speedy service!
I have the leek & herb omlette ($14) with marinated fetta, rocket, roasted tomatoes and toast. And it's good, more like a crepe with the fetta, rocket and tomatoes enveloped within - very satisfying. I also go a little crazy and order a chocolate milkshake ($5.50) too, and I suddenly feel like I'm 10 years old again! It tastes just as good as it did way back then.
Mr Ladybird sips on his latte ($3.50?) and tucks into his vegie black stone ($15) - english muffin served with mushrooms, tomatoes, poached eggs and hashbrowns. The hashbrowns are scrumptious.. nice and crunchy and perfectly seasoned.
And are you ready for the egg yolk money shot?!
The only disappointment of our dining experience was being asked to move tables to make room for a group that had just arrived a the cafe. I would normally be happy to oblige, however, on this occasion politely declined as our meals had been served and we were already eating... This has never happened to me before, and I did find it a little odd, perhaps even rude... Tell me, has this ever happened to you before?
