Matthew Thomas is a lovely little art cafe on the coast road overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Sandgate.
We arrived for brunch on a Sunday and it was fairly busy. The menu was full of nice choices and it was difficult to decide, but I opted for a mt classic which is eggs, bacon, tomato and sourdough while my companion chose the grande breakfast.
Other options on the menu included pancakes, waffles, muesli, salmon, and eggs benedict.
I had an almond and nutella shake which was delicious, and the coffee was also very good.
Every element of the mt classic was done well. The bacon and eggs were full of flavour, the sourdough nicely made and not too crunchy like some sourdoughs can be.
The grande was equally flavoursome with delicious corn and vegetable fritters, succulent mushrooms, eggs and bacon.
This is a nice location and everything is served well and nicely presented.
Matthew Thomas could be a brunch favourite for me.
