Belle: Blue skies, warm mornings and lazy Sundays calls for another brunch session with my girls Jo and T. This time we finally ticked off a place from my food list and headed to Copo Cafe & Diner in Drummoyne after our morning Bay Run walk.
Just a little side note; the address is stated as being on Victoria Rd, but the main entrance is located on the other side via Formosa Street and there is ample parking available. A big plus here.
We started with our round of coffees. I went for Affogato with Serendipity white chocolate ice cream ($5.5). This was my choice after they had run out of their cold drip that morning. It was the perfect mix of strong beans and sweetness. Jo ordered the Soy Latte ($3.7 + $0.5 for soy) and T got the Mocha ($3.7).
What I like about this place is the all day breakfast on weekends and the fact that they have a very extensive breakfast menu, which will be good for the fussy eater. Lucky for us girls, it was a baked eggs kind of morning. We each chose a different one to share.
Baked eggs with fried potatoes, chorizo, chimichurri and toast ($19). I went for the gluten free option which is a rare find at cafés. The spices of the chorizos blended in with the rest of the dish. The chimichurri gave the extra acidity and texture to the baked eggs.
Moroccan baked eggs with labne, herbs and toast ($19). We all agreed that this one had the better flavour of the three dishes.
House smoked trout baked eggs with horseradish and creme fraiche, herbs and toast ($19). The trout was lacking in salt and I found myself needing to add additional salt to the dish. The creme fraiche added an additional richness to the dish.
I think another few rounds are needed here to try their whole menu. A sweet brunch round is calling.
