|Right around the corner from Batman Lane|
I was interested in the offerings - English Breakfast, Bangers and Mash, Welsh Rarebit...these were all foreign to me in a foreign country. I settled for the Scottish Breakfast- I know, I know. I'm in Australia, not Scotland. But I have never tried or seen these items in Toronto so why not?

Meal: Pre-flight brekkie
Traditional black pudding, square sliced sausage, tatty scone, 2 fried eggs, and roast tomato
While the idea of black pudding may disturb some, I was intrigued. I am in the minority who like soondae - Korean blood sausage - and I've had clotted blood in bowls Vietnamese soup.
The surprising winner in this were the eggs. This kick-started another obsession while travelling through Oceania. Australia, what do you feed your chickens? More importantly, Canada what are we feeding our chickens?! These yolks were beautiful. In colour. In flavour. Just...omg. If I had to list the food that I miss from this part of the world, eggs are pretty high up there. Delicious, delicious eggs. No salt, no pepper. Just...eggs.
The best moment? When the delicious egg yolks oozed all over the plate and mingled with the blood sausage and scones...o m g. Overall, this was a pretty good send-off from Sydney. While it doesn't top the Soft Shell Crab Omelette from Cafe Ish, it was still one of the better cafe breakfasts that I had while travelling. Simple yet different and well-executed. Farewell Sydney!
