Breakfast at The Grain Store, city

Hmmm! Sometimes when something bad happens, it can turn out to be really good in hindsight! πŸ™‚ Tilly and i planned to go to Sweet Evelyn in Brunswick for this mango panna cotta, but she starts work at 8am, so we decided to be crazy and get to Sweet Evelyn at like 6:30am hahah! Anything for an adventure right? So i woke up at 3:15am, got to Springvale station nice and early and waited for the first train. The 4:46am train! I was so proud of myself getting there, with time to spare! Sleepy as i was, i happily waited. And waited.

Then i heard the announcement that there was signal failures and the train wouldnt arrive until 5:15! This was a spanner in the works of our morning, as we had timed this breakfast trip to Sweet Evelyn down to the last minute hahah!

I thought to myself, i am bummed i might miss out on this panna cotta today… but i did do all i could…. so i guess thats ok…

So i met Tilly at 6am in the city and it was still dark! In my sleepy-ish state, i was kind of enjoying it.. it still was an adventure! She suggested we go somewhere in the city, since we wouldnt have time to go to brunswick and back before her shift. And immediately my brain thought of The Grain Store! (Well done sleepy brain! You did good! :D). My friend Stefanie had told me the Grain Store was a good place for breakfast a few years ago actually, but i never got around to it. But today was the perfect chance to try it!

We walked there and went in as soon as it opened at 7am.

I immediately liked it! Some places just have a nice vibe! πŸ™‚

Our waittress was lovely! Initially i was going to order the white chocolate pancakes, but she said we have a special today, which was French Toast with Nutella (and other things too, but as soon as she said β€œnutella” my brain decided and i stopped listening to the rest hahaha). Tilly ordered the pancakes, so i got to try some of it too! Win-win! πŸ˜€

They were yummmm!

And here is my french toast:

It was so yum! I was so impressed with it! It had so many different flavours and textures and as Tilly said, they all complimented each other (shes been watching a lot of Project Runway hahaha).

I enjoyed that!

Im glad i finally got to try breakfast at the Grain Store! Its at 514 Flinders Lane in the city πŸ™‚

Frank’s, cafe in cheltenham

My friend Tam told me about this place. In a quiet suburban st in cheltenham, there is this bustling little cafe called Frank's.
It had a really friendly vibe and the staff were lovely.
I started off with a mocha.

Ahh coffee art ❤️
And the lovely waittress got me a newspaper to read while i waited for my meal. Which meant i got to read some Garfield, Hagar, etc woohoo.
I asked her what the Fried Chicken Bao was, and she described it to me, and it sounded really unique, so i was intrigued and got that.

Look at they hey? πŸ™‚
And heres what it looks like when i picked it up:

Nice yummy fried chicken encased in soft dough surrounded by an explosion of flavours. Mmmm, i enjoyed eating that!
They also have burgers and donuts and regular brunch options too!
If youre in the cheltenham area (somewhat near southland shopping centre), its a nice place to go for brunch!
Its at 97 cavanagh st, cheltenham.

The Last Piece, cafe in mulgrave

My friend sheryl took me to this place. I really like it!

Its cafe in mulgrave, and the back part overlooks the football oval that hawthorn football club train at on fridays. Pretty cool!

The cafe is really nice. My friend said all the food here is nice! I chose to have the chicken burger, and sweet potato fries!

And that red drink was called ‘Beets by Dre’ hahah! I ordered it just cos of the name πŸ˜€

It was all delicious!!  I really liked this place! And the staff were really nice!

Oh and they are very much into hawthorn and the football here! πŸ™‚

Sheryl told me the letters from the seats in the football stadium, theyve embedded them into the tables! πŸ™‚

But i did buy a hawthorn gingerbread man πŸ˜€

How could i not?? Theyre so cute hahah

Murrays, milk bar themed place in Prahran!

Ok that was great! My friend Kodi recommended i try this place called Murrays in prahran. I almost never go to prahran but i came here to check out the twin peaks art exhibition at Artboy gallery, and decided since i was here i should check out this recommendation. And im so glad i did! 

Firstly, it looks so cool! So old school milk bar! πŸ˜€

I instantly loved the theme πŸ˜€

Then i had a mocha

Mmmmmm! Good stuff! And u know i love places that have unique/nice spoons! πŸ™‚

And then i ordered some food! I did feel like one of their amazing looking pies, but i wanted to try something more different, so i went with one of their amazing sounding bagels. On the waitresses recommendation, i went with the Murray! I always love ordering the item that shares the same name as the place!

And i was not disappointed! It was scrumdiddily-umptious! πŸ˜€ and then i had to ask! Was i able to order some mixed lollies that were on display on the shelf or were they there just for decoration?

The lovely waittress said yes u can order them!! Wahoo! I ordered some mixed lollies and was transported back to childhood, when i used to order 20 cents mixed lollies and be given a bag of amazing πŸ˜€

They were delicious!! I really enjoyed eating them.

Then i ordered a smarties milkshake!

A joy to look at, and a joy to drink!! πŸ™‚

Ahhhh… i love this place πŸ™‚ if u ever are near prahran and feel like being transported to an awesome milk bar or canteen of your youth, this is worth a stop ;D

Its at 3B Murray St Prahran

Travelled to Ancient Egypt :P Einsteins 251, caulfield north

Emily told me about this place! Its a cafe in caulfield north, where the menu has a middle eastern theme.

Its a cosy, charming place.

You know a place is special when the bathroom wall looks like that right? πŸ™‚

The staff were so lovely and helpful! Β  I ordered a mocha.

I love places that take the time to do nice coffee art πŸ™‚

I decided to order the Egyptian breakfast, simply because i love ancient egyptian history! πŸ˜€

This is what it looks like!

My first thought was how do i eat this? I made a start and then asked one of the lovely waittresses as they walked past and she explained it to me! I think the gist is that it involves dipping and eating it however u feel like! I can do that! πŸ™‚

When i was eating it, and dipping in the flatbread, it wasnt hard for me to imagine i was in ancient egypt, and some egyptian mum was making me a breakfast hehe! It was really different to anything id tasted before, unique spices! I looked it up later and the dish contains dukkah, which the internet tells me is egyptian and is a mix of nuts and spices. I had a lot of fun dipping my delicious flatbread and chowing down πŸ™‚

I cant wait to come back and try other items on the menu! They also do shakes!

Einstein 251 is at 251 hawthorn road, caulfield north

And look at this artwork on the walls:

Logic will get you from A to B, but imagination will take u everywhere. Love it πŸ™‚

Pulled Pork Burger at Left Field

Ok guys. Omg! I had been recommended Left Field for quite some time now, by Chei and Hanh. And i finally got around to checking it out. And it was a GOOD decision!! πŸ™‚

As i was approaching the place i read some reviews on zomato and one review by serina tanaka said that the pulled pork burger was the best shes had. Thats a good enough recommendation for me! So i decided to go with that πŸ™‚

First, i got a mocha

Mmmmm… good stuff!

Then the lovely staff asked if i would like to read the paper! I said yes! Because that seems like a great thing to do when getting brunch!

I enjoyed flipping through, of course i headed straight to the comics. Oh garfield! Hagar! Good times! πŸ™‚

And then just as i was finishing the comics, IT arrived.

Look at that!!

Legends says if you pull out that knife, you get to become the King of Britain! 🀴

And then i got into it.

Look at that! Double decker like a big mac. Mmmm! It was delicious! Theres an emote that can sum it up. Its this one:


The pulled pork was so good! Tender! Flavoursome! The combination of flavours and that mayo stuff was amazing! And that cool looking black bun was perfect! It was heaven eating it πŸ™‚

Hanh told me all the food here is great! Im looking forward to coming back here to try different things. One day id like to try the donut oreo slider…. just because…. its a donut oreo slider πŸ˜€

I recommend this place as a great place to come for brunch! πŸ™‚ its at 358 koornang road carnegie.

Emily told me about this place! I love places that are sorta hidden. I think if you didnt know about this place, you might even walk past it without knowing it was there.

I love the unique and cosy vibe of the place. I love that there are sewing machines on some of the tables! The staff were so friendly and attentive πŸ™‚ the coffee was great! I even love the unique spoon that came with my coffee! I stared at it for ages. Roma! (Ive been there by the way eheheheh)

And then i ordered the three cheese sandwich that Emily recommended to me. Oh… yes! That was delicious!! Love at first bite hahaha

I love attention to detail and care. Look at this salt on the sandwich!

So good πŸ™‚

I like this place! Great place to come for a coffee or brunch! πŸ™‚ its at 2 Somerset place in the city (a few blocks from melbourne central) πŸ™‚
