St Edmonds Cafe – Brekkie

poached eggs on sourdoughlatte

St Edmonds Cafe joins a vast amount of funky cafe’s in Prahran with cosy seating inside and covered seating outside. Serving a brunch and lunch menu daily and dinner on Thursday and Friday night.

I went one early morning for a quick meeting so ordered a latte and poached eggs on sourdough. Bread was a bit burnt and one poached eggs was slightly over cooked and didn’t ooze out with eggporn yolk goodness but I guess it’s just your normal eggs on toast. I waited too long to take a photo of the latte but that’s a normal foodie thing to not drink or eat until photos have been taken.

latteYou can’t miss St Edmonds as the cafe stands out with it’s bright graffiti filled front face and is just off the corner of well known Greville St in Prahran.

Service wasn’t the best but I find that from a lot of these brunch cafes. I like the exterior of the cafe, the coffee isn’t that great and food was okay. Probably better cafe’s to try down the road.

Lucky Coq – My fav pizza hangout after 7pm

pizza

$4 Pizza sounds pretty good to me and should sound pretty good for you too. Thin based pizza’s with what I call more gourmet ingredients than the normal take away pizza joint. Nothing too fancy but my style of pizza. If it’s got mascarpone in it, then I like it.

The Salmone pizza with smoked salmon, spinach, mozzarella & mascarpone is my favourite and will order that without fail. Luckily for me, my partner always orders something else so I get to try that.

 

 

$4 pizza’s aren’t available all day but that’s no problem because there’s plenty of time slots to fit it into your day.

The times are:
11:30am-4pm – Weekdays
7pm-11pm – Mon-Thurs
7pm-9pm – Fri-Sat
All day on Sunday til 11pm

 

The atmosphere and music is dark and retro with a bunch of comfy couches, chairs and tables. There’s weird stuff on the walls and ceilings and a whole lot of cocks (roosters cocks…geez guys…so immature). During peak hours its hard to find a seat but don’t fret it’s all worth it. Just grab a drink and hover around a table and the people will probably start to feel weird around you and surrender their seat.

FOG Bar & Restaurant – Great Buzz In The Heart of Prahran

 

FOG is a classy restaurant in the heart of Prahran, serving for brunch, lunch and dinner. It’s down Greville St with a nice credible selection of great Cafes, Bars and Restaurants that I’m keen to review soon.

Ms J works close by and one night when I went to pick her up, we ended up having dinner with her boss and his wife. Great company! There was no intention of a “proper” night out so we were all dressed quite casually and started to feel very under-dressed that Friday when the herd of party people started to rock by to the cocktail birthday out at the back deck (around 6:30pm). Whoops! Others frocked up quite nicely as they came by for  drinks to kick start the weekend. With smiles all round, we didn’t care. It was a lovely start to the evening.

I’m not usually a wine drinker but the bottle that we picked was to my liking, (sorry I didn’t pay attention to the name of the wine) but I did take notice of their wine glasses (above photo)

Fog is participating in the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival 2011 (March 4th-14th), see here for more details.

For entree we shared a tasting plate of dips, crackers, cheese, olives & sun-dried tomatoes.Sashimi too…And I can’t forget the Thai Style Seared, Rare Beef Salad which was a delight to try and came with some crispy shallotsTasmanian Salmon which sat ontop of some black sticky rice and a bit of greens. Looks like black balls.Ms J tried the Braised Veal Ragout, I tried some too and the veal just melted in my mouth.We also picked on a salad that tasted fresh and went well with my main.My main was the Rangers Valley Angus Rump with creamy mash and some asparagus.
The food was great, the atmosphere was buzzing with lots of chatter and laughs and the service was top notch. I highly recommend trying this place out. www.fog.com.au
