Recently me and hubby picked up a new found interest, we've been in Melb since forever but only realized that this city is the heaven for brekky-brunch lovers.... There are tons of small independent cafe serving unique home made dishes scattered around Melbourne and its surrounding. we're so slow I know -.-"" I've had brekky or brunch many times before with friends but never really pay attention to what the place serves, the coffee and all, I went mainly for the meet up, so as long as the foods don't kill me I won't complain.
Anyway, couple of days back, after his overnight shift, hubby needs to go to the city to take care of some stuff but the place he wanted to go were not open before 9am, and since he finished work at 7am I suggested to him that we go on a brekky date, lolz...
So, of we went to Outpost at South Yarra one of the nice cozy independent cafe that are tucked neatly in the 1st floor of an apartment/office, very near to the South Yarra Station.
Likey the fresh tulips that greet us on the door
The place looks warm and quite inviting
Inside, the kitchen, coffee making area, cashier and cake/breakfast display area are all open to each other. It's kind of messy but nice at the same time :) feels homey...
We had latte each, their coffee was really good, both me n hubby are not coffee drinker but we love the smell and the taste of their coffee, and also they were warm enough without burning the tongue. The coffee were actually still warm enough for drink even after we finished the breakfast :) (maybe we ate too fast?)
This is what I had. French toast with bacon, syrup and almond. The portion was hearty!! If I come again to this place I would share it with someone, luckily that particular day both of us were famished :D The french toast are just right in the sogginess department, and the syrup on the bacons were not too sweet too.
This was what hubby had. He loved it, me too (lolz I had my claim on some of the asparagus, salmons and greens), the asparagus were soft and crunchy, the greens and creams were fresh and went very well with the salmon and the toast
I can safely say that I'll be back to this place. Food and coffee-wise this place is great, service was also polite. My only rant is, if you come in groups or when it's busy, then you would have to sit at another room (forgot to take pic of it) that is separated from the kitchen, coffee area etc, and the separated room lack the charms and warmth of the area pictured on my photos above. They need to put some drawings and yellow bulbs, me thinks.
Anyway, Outpost is a fine place.
On the other note, I'm off tomorrow for a 2 weeks holiday, and then to Jakarta for my in-law's wedding. Will update when I arrive in Jakarta!!
Thanks for still stopping by and reading my blogs despite the lack of updates -.-"" I appreciate it very much!!
Take care and have a great monday (tomorrow)!!
