Last weekend, we decided to search for somewhere new to scratch the brunch itch. Living in the southside, we decided not to venture north of the river that morning. After doing some shopping at the nearby FujiMart, my companions and I headed to Brown Dog Cafe in Woollonggabba for a bite to eat. With the weather considerably cooling, we were glad to have come at this time of the year, as they didn't have air conditioning.
The menu was short, but concise, and contained quite a few traditional breakfast staples.
We ordered via counter service, and got a table inside. The setup was quite rustic with its mismatched wooden tables and chairs.
Our drinks came soon after ordering, with my two companions ordering a Banana Smoothie and Iced Coffee respectively. Both relished in their cool refreshing drinks. On the other hand, I opted for the cappuccino, which was quite strong, even at a single shot, although the milk wasn't overly rich.
Whislt the food did take a little long to arrive, we didn't mind too much as we were soon preoccupied with the jenga they provided to patrons.
My companion ordered the dog's breakfast, with an added serve of beans on the side. Whilst the haloumi was a little over done, she did find the dish to be quite filling. The beans were also very well seasoned.
I ordered the big dog's breakfast, which was all of the dogs breakfast with added bacon and scrambled eggs. The scrambled eggs were very much fluffy and perforated, tasting a little bit like an egg cake or an egg souffle rather than scrambled eggs. The portion of bacon was very generous, and done quite well with only little bits toasted, unlike the haloumi which was quite covered in overly toasted bits. The avocado was deliciously ripe, and the toast was quite filling. The only thing I would have preferred would have been the option for poached or sunny side up eggs instead.
