Such a sweet coincidence the girls and I were free to catch up over lunch. It felt like the weather gods wanted us to stay indoors due to nasty wind and horribly cold weather that was forecasted throughout the day . This resulted in us spending a few hours wandering around Westfield Sydney to do some window shopping. In between shopping we also had tea time at Laduree.
Lunch time had arrived and so one of my lovely girl friends, Almighty Princess, suggested Two Good Eggs Cafe (148 Goulburn St Surry Hills, NSW2010). And so with the handy Google maps we were on our way there.
It’s fact that Surry Hills has always been a home to the infinite trendy cafés, bakery and other various munchies. It’s the trend to not just brunch but lunch!
Holy molly ! They have the gigantic Nutella on display. You can tell their chefs are working hard. They even come to your table to serve your meals.
They have chalkboards to display their specials, which is quite helpful and friendly.
It was a coldish day, so we sat inside, under the roof, near the window where you’d assume no wind would blow in but I happened to sit right where the wind blew through the cracks. Thankfully there was a heater across the room to make my body temperature warmer.
Almighty Princess mentioned the interior is vintage, rustic, simplistic and homely, whereas Miss XY believed it to be retro.
Our appetite levels were skyrocketing, but luckily their service was quick and efficient. That’s what any hungry customer likes.
Drinks were first to arrive at our table, the Chai Tea ($4.40) served in an actual size Chinese teapot was hmmm… I’m not sure if I was patient enough to let the tea leaves soak in the flavour with the milk, but it was almost like the milk was overpowering the chai rather than vice versa.
I felt like a happy kid when I saw a bite size chocolate waffle biscuit sitting on the shiny teaspoon.
And check out the cloudy chai froth!
Miss XY ordered a Cappuccino ($3.30) which tasted like an ordinary coffee, but do note we’re no coffee experts. It was simply enjoyable to have with her meal.
Almighty Princess was anxious in trying the special of the day smoothie- Mango and Passionfruit ($6.50) it was a smoothie she hadn’t tried in a while. It’s a reminiscence of Summer, the sweet, yet tangy taste.
The classic Two Good Eggs Breakfast ($17.90) that Almighty Princess ordered was absolutely delicious. Although only one strip of bacon didn’t completely please her, she would’ve liked more. Place together with the amazing tangy sweet tomato chutney and you have yourself the best big breakfast! One enjoyable approach to eat the toasted sourdough is to place the poached egg onto the dough and spread tomato chutney on top. It will get messy, but just think of the combination of flavours. It’s lip smacking!
I wanted something different, so I thought I’d give the Breakfast burger ($10.90) a try. Filled with crispy succulent bacon, excellent poached egg garnished with spinach, bread drizzled with tasty bbq aiol and served with a mini sized jam jar tomato relish as an additional sauce. This dish is worth applauding too. Boy, my stomach was no doubt satisfied!
Miss XY ordered the Eggs benedict ($17.90) and with relief she too quite enjoyed her meal. She found the poached eggs to be very gooey in the middle and done quite well. Chances of me trying her dish, zero…she demolished the dish before giving us girls a try. Guess that means she quite appreciated her meal.
