It Just Has To Be Delicious

Always on the look out for new and interesting breakfast venues, I had heard a lot about FortySevenKirwanStreet and thought it was time to give it a try.

When I arrived it was buzzing with people – a few long tables, a group of cyclists outside on the grass having coffee, noisy, lively but not chaotic.

Like Sayers there is a delicious array of goodies on the counter – savoury tarts and sweet cakes, and many people were popping in for a takeaway.

All of the breakfast favourites were on the menu and I had a hard time choosing between a traditional Paddock breakfast and a crab, leek and artichoke omelette. In the end I chose the Paddock brekkie and a fresh orange juice.

The orange juice was lovely – faultless. The coffee was also delicious, no hint of bitterness, smooth and rich.

I liked the breakfast, but I thought that it could have delivered a bit more in flavour. The eggs were nice, but not as tasty as eggs at other cafes. The sausages were pale (but cooked) – maybe they had been microwaved? Okay sausages, but not the best. The bacon was lovely, the tomatoes sweet and flavoursome, and the mushrooms were good. The star of the dish was the potato rosti – perfectly cooked, really good texture and nice to mop up the egg with.

Will I go back to FortySevenKirwanStreet ? Well if I am in the area, I would dine there, but in my opinion there are at least 3 other cafes which offer a better breakfast – Sayers Sister, John Street Cafe and Sayers.
