What an awesome day to end your awesome weekend before your new week at work.... My group of friends met up and we sat down and had brunch at Cafe Melba.
Along the roads of Mountbatten Road, Cafe Melba has one of the best dining brunches I have personally tried. However to get to this location, it is a little bit confusing but i promise you the trip is worth it. You have to alight at Mountbatten train station and would have to take exit B and upon which, walk on the path and you would head over the the Goodman Arts Centre located on the left hand side of the pavement.
We walked past the blocks with a reminiscence of nostalgia. The place looked as if I was in my Holding site in my primary school... Monks Hill Secondary School...
As we walked into the restaurant, I had the smell of the freshness of the coffee with the aroma greatly lingering in the bistro area. The alfresco area comprised of a high chair bar style concept along with the garden style low seat dining.
The menu consisted of a mixture of an American cuisine along with a classic Italian cuisine in which the variety of prices ranged from $8 to $100 over. They had a classic brunch menu in which you could ever imagine from steak and eggs to a proper classic breakfast.
I had the full Melba breakfast. A big oval plate filled with toast, a hash brown, eggs of your choice (scrambled, poached and over-easy), bacon, a bratwurst sausage, sauteed mushrooms and 2 lightly grilled cherry tomatoes. A small saucer of baked beans was also served along with the breakfast.
The food was delicious, as i ordered the poached eggs and i would expect a very high standard of poached eggs because if one restaurant or bistro can pull it off, it is incredibly tasty. I then ordered poached eggs and i placed it on top of my toast and drizzled the bacon oil and wow it was truly amazing. The yolk was oozing out properly and the bacon was perfect. I quickly tucked in my brunch and i was quite famished by the time the meal arrived.
I paid $25 for the entire meal of course i didn't order any alcoholic beverages to accompany me such that I would not have a weird taste in my mouth. Its breakfast but i would have alcohol if it was dinner.
They also have a fine selection of beers, ciders, wines and spirits for consumption apart from their juices, soft drinks etc.
The ambience of that place is perfect for a Sunday morning or afternoon where you would be able to bring your kids or your dogs to sit by the area and play. Such a beautiful place. Excellent service and lovely food. Be sure to drop by this place if you feel like having a good time with your family on a Sunday afternoon.
