1000 £ BEND FOR A HEARTY INNER-MELBOURNE BREAKFAST

1000 £ BEND FOR A HEARTY INNER-MELBOURNE BREAKFAST

. One of the best things about Hello Sailor coffee– supplied by Seven Seeds– is that you can practically drown in the large, and sometimes that’s precisely what the doctor ordered! Everything that comes out of the kitchen looks delectable, but this morning I opt for the crumpet stack with fresh fruit and honey, sans cream for me I’m afraid. If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more than toast but without being a plate of fried stuff, this might well be your most satisfying option.

Or, if you’re in town for a breakfast meeting, consider the Pound. It’s spacious yet cozy, and a whole lot less stiff than other cafes in its immediate surrounds.

I was first drawn to Hello Sailor by its prominent glass frontage, breadbaskets in the window, and birch tones. Oh, and it’s a bluebird of happiness tattoo-inspired logo.

Kudos to the chef when I took some out-of-towners here for brunch. One complained that even though she always asks for crispy bacon, she very rarely gets it. She did at the 1000 ₤ Bend. And she was most pleased.

Per usual, I opt for a skinny mocha. Made with Mörk, it has a slightly bitter note to the chocolate, which complements the coffee well.

Everything that comes out of the kitchen looks delectable, but this morning I opt for the crumpet stack with fresh fruit and honey, sans cream for me I’m afraid. The tastes are refreshing, and it’s not a big start to the day, instead of leaving you comfortably full. The fresh herbs add a light accent to the fresh berries, banana, and honey. If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more than toast but without being a plate of fried stuff, this might well be your most satisfying option.

 

Despite its relatively limited size, Hello Sailor is a bright, airy and welcoming. But it can be a squeeze, so make sure you get in early or wait until the peak is over. That said, Hello Sailor has recently ‘expanded’ with street-side tables and umbrellas taking better advantage of its location on the corner of Auburn Rd and Victoria Rd.

I choose to break my fast with the Breakfast Bagel, which comes in at a very reasonable $12.50.

On my bagel is a free-range fried egg, bacon, tasty cheese, cream cheese, avocado, and relish. All this crammed into a toasted dill bagel. It is yum. Honestly, the intermingling of the cream cheese, avocado, relish and bacon juices is a taste sensation! It is a little challenging to eat stacked though unless you have a detachable jaw. Just break it down, trust me, you’ll love it!

On the menu is many hearty options, through to a simple toast and Vegemite.

 

I’ll admit, I ‘d walked past it sometimes before actually going in because it looks like a grungy warehouse from the outside. I made assumptions and cast aspersions about what the menu might offer. Much to my eventual dismay, as I ‘d been spending all that time at low known quantities, rather than venturing in.

 

Behind the coffee bar is a vast event space, including a bar, available for rent. Upstairs is another event space, with another bar, and potential for movie screenings, presentations, and live gigs. I’ve been in all three for various reasons and can confirm a Pound is a great place for relaxed goings on. But today I’m here for breakfast…

 

Located on Little Lonsdale Street, just a stone’s throw from Melbourne Central Station, 1000 ₤ Bend has quickly become a beacon of inner-city goodness for me.

 

Now the Pound is where I take my visiting friends for a hearty inner-Melbourne breakfast, good coffee, excellent service and excellent tunes.

Entering from Little Lonsdale, you walk into the cafe area, which features a mishmash of furniture and decor, which would not be unexpected from Melbourne’s ‘burbs.

 

As per usual, I backed this up with a skinny mocha, which was smooth and not overpowering in the chocolate department.
