60 Robertson Quay
A chilled out brunch is one of my favourite ‘activities’.. and Epicurious does do the job very well. It’s situated right by the river, and so makes for a nice meal, plus a lazy walk by the river afterwards. It’s very family-friendly, particularly since it’s outdoors, so there are often loads of families and kids around. Only there’s not that many tables, so be prepared to wait if you go smack at (food) peak hour on a weekend!
We previously found the food a bit hit-and-miss, especially given the price tags.. but this time, all of it was pretty good 🙂 I loved the Green eggs and ham, which was pesto-swirled eggs and ham on a large slice of bread, and I added sausages and grilled mushrooms to it as well. It’s also fab because the dish is a big portion (given there were 2 extras to it), so it can be shared between 2 people if you don’t feel like pigging out.
The pancakes came out so pretty, they looked almost fake 😉 3 fluffy pancakes with a scattering of fruit and drizzled with syrup. YUM!! Would’ve been been better if they had given lashings of whipped butter. Mmmm…
The French toast also came out beautifully presented, and dusted with icing sugar as well as fruit on top. It was made from raisin toast though, which they do point out in the menu so there are no surprises, but I prefer regular bread. It also came with a sort of marmalade dip, and I’d have liked butter and maple syrup a lot more. Guess I could’ve easily asked for it, though 😛
