I cant believe it is already May…this year is scarily flying past. As long as the cold winter months pass by quickly I’ll be happy when summer is upon us once again. I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was spent with the family as it was Greek Easter on Sunday (photo post to come). I honestly believe I gained about 3kg in one day, so this week I am aiming to be super duper healthy (so far so good). On Saturday morning the gang headed to Reuben Hills to check out this hyped up cafe for breakfast. I was super excited as breakfast was my first time playing with my new Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens. I really need to get a hang of my focusing skills though, some of these photos are a little whack.
Set on Albion Street in Surry Hills, the cafe looks quite small from the front but is actually a long premise with the whole back of the cafe opened by a revolving garage door which backs out to the lane behind. We got there pretty early (9.30am) and had about a 15 minute wait for a table of 5.
The coffee at Reuben was seriously amazing, and one of the best I have had in a long time. Upstairs from the cafe is the roastry where they are cooking up their own beans.
Green tea in a pretty tea cup.
If you have read anything about Reuben Hills, I am sure there was mention of their Salted Caramel Milkshakes. So sweet but so good.
The menu is a collection of items that are available to be ordered and eaten all day. The flavours and ingredients in the menu seem to mainly be South American inspired and cover a range of items from Brioche with Dulce de Leche, Really Fucking Great Fried Chicken, Crab Salad and a Doggs Breakfast? (salted caramel ice cream sandwich).
First choice..the Barley Porridge with Almond Milk, Rhubarb, Candied Pistachios and Hibiscus.
The Tradesmans Brioche with Fried Eggs, Jamon, Avocado & Relish.
Soft Baked Eggs with Jamon, Spinach, Ranchero & Rye Bread.
Soft Baked Eggs with Goats Curd, Spinach, Ranchero & Rye Bread for me. I was fasting (no meat) for Greek Easter, so this seemed like the perfect option for a vegetarian breakfast. Unfortunately the egg yolks were not runny as described, it still tasted good nonetheless with the Ranchero sauce having a nice kick of spice to it.
The other vegetarian option I was tossing up against…Avocado, Coriander & Lime on Sourdough Rye.
Nothing better then starting the weekend off with a nice breakfast. Looking back I should have not eaten all of Saturday to make up for the Easter Feasting that occurred on Sunday. Hope everyone had a good weekend…Easter photo post to come soon.
