Now back to breakfast.
We were lucky to have popped by on a rare sunny winter morning and it was nice with the glass walls as we could enjoy the sun minus the chill, coupled with a view that had water, sand and people jogging.
Besides the usual milk coffee, they also do a decent syphon coffee.
Or if you want to be healthy, grab a juice like the Wife did, from the picture I believe this must have been a watermelon, mint and a hint of ginger.
On to breakfast. Remember I said subtle asian elements? The corn fritters are battered with panko crumbs which makes it extra crispy and its paired with dots of kewpie mayo. Apart from that, everything is familiar, mashed avocado, smoked salmon and a perfectly round poached egg. One of the nicer versions I had in Melbourne to date.
Poached eggs are paired with chili oil, the kind you get in yum cha or at dumplings but matched again with familiar items like chorizo and spinach. The chilies give this normal combination a little punch.
The place ticks all the right boxes for us, nearby, interesting and delicious breakfast dishes and easy enough to get a table without queuing. With the weather warming up, we can't wait to go back to enjoy a little sun while having breakfast or oh yes, the umami burger for lunch.

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. We found nothing wrong about the view of water and sand, a view that not many cafes can boast about, with good food too may I add.
