Brown Sugar, Bondi Beach
Last weekend was a wonderful and sunny day for Sculptures By the Sea and our yearly tradition of the event involves lunching nearby at Bondi Beach. This year we visited Brown Sugar as we’d heard it was a very popular cafe in Bondi, apparently they also make some seriously good poached eggs! We arrived around midday and were fortunate to get the last table 🙂
Asparagus & Parmesan Eggs – poached egg, asparagus, prosciutto, truffle oil, toast.
There’s a reason why I picked this in particular, mainly because of the word ‘truffle’. Its been a while since my last poached eggs and I’m glad I tried this! There was a sprinkle of crunchy onions (I believe they were onions), really tasty prosciutto and the beautifully yellow and smooth yolk.
Mr C’s choice were the black stone eggs. I imagined the eggs to be cooked black or served as a hard boiled egg but that wasn’t the case, it was actually referring to the unique hash brown with fillings. I loved the hash brown, it was deep fried until they were a beautiful golden brown and very crunchy. Their gourmet tomatoes were deliciously sweet and juicy.
We ordered a skim latte with no sugar to help fix my lack of sleep the night before. I thoroughly enjoyed this as it has that nice bitter taste to it as latte should have. I’ll definitely visit again just for the coffee if not for the food as I really liked the taste.
Since the cafe is just steps away from Bondi Beach it’s always extremely popular with people lining up to get inside, they also have an extensive dinner menu for those who want to visit later in the evening. Most of the menu dishes are under $20 per dish, which is pretty standard for a cafe in Sydney.
