Last Saturday we crossed another venue off The Bucket List and visited The Butcher’s Block in Wahroonga which has recently opened. Unfortunately, Saturday morning delivered us torrential rain so we rocked up in boots, jumpers and umbrellas. We were pleasantly grateful when we took a seat inside and warmed up with some tea and coffee. The interior design of the cafe has taken the pre-existing business a butchery (hence the cafes cool name), and used it to create a funky and chic interior filled with hooks, knives and my utmost favourite…exposed brick walls.
Most important beverage of the day…the morning coffee!
Everyone loves a good breakfast and I was luckily dining with my two friends Isi and Alessia and my brother Damo. Between the four of us, there was plenty of food ordered and photos captured to share with you. Damo starts with a Berry Smoothie, which was so fruity and creamy that I end up drinking half of it.
The Kettle calling the Pot black type of morning.
Isi goes with the Chicken & Walnut sandwich on Grainy Bread.
…to make her order feel a little more like breakfast, she has some Bacon on the side.
Damo goes with the Big Butcher’s Breakfast which comes with eggs (cooked to how you please), bacon, mushrooms, black pudding, roast tomatoes, sausage and toasted bread.
Alessia has the Bircher Muesli filled with chopped nuts and oat goodness and then topped with poached fruit.
I couldn’t resist ordering the Scrambled Eggs on Toast with Smoked Salmon and Truffle Oil. Perfect combination of flavours!
Light, fluffy & creamy scrambled eggs. NOM
We have something sweet to finish off with our coffees..Creme Brulee anyone? I had the pleasure of doing the initial crack on the toffee layer.
Mini Bread & Butter Pudding with Custard. None of us had eaten a B&B pudding before but oh boy was it good, and so cute in size and shape, like a mini loaf of bread.
We loved everything about The Butcher’s Block…the atmosphere, wait staff, coffee, interior and most importantly the amazing food. Next time we will be sure to visit on a sunny day so we can enjoy the huge balcony out the back and also try out the lunch menu which looked just as enticing.
