On this beautiful Sunday morning, we decided to pay a visit to The Burrow at West End and try our luck with getting a table, as last time we went, they were completely full. We got there around 8:00am which was perfect as there were only a handful of diners having breakfast. We were seated promptly by the waitress who took our drinks order right away to start us off. We all decided on a cold drink as it was such a hot day, so we each ordered one of the freshly squeezed juices available on the menu ($6.50 each).
Seeing as The Burrow was so popular, we knew it would soon be filled with hungry diners, so we ordered our meals shortly after we had ordered our drinks. I must say, the dish titles were so creative and totally reminded me of the story Alice in Wonderland! We were spoilt for choice and everything just sounded so tasty - it was too hard to choose! We finally decided on three different meals and what arrived at our table soon after totally surprised us! The meals were presented so beautifully and decorated with different coloured garnishes that they really lived up to the fun names of each dish! The food was fresh and the cafe is definitely generous with their portions.
Burrow Juice - carrot, apple, orange, ginger ($6.50)
Fruit-a-licious - apple, orange, watermelon, pineapple ($6.50)
Pear juice with mint garnishes ($6.50)
Mad Madam Mim's Bubble and Squeak - Cauldron bubble and squeak, Serrano ham egg cup, fried sage, pancetta honey comb ($16.50)
'Off with your head!' - Black forest bacon, free-range organic eggs, ranchero beans, roast mushrooms, morcilla and potato hash, served with
Queen Virgin Mary shooter ($22)
Little Miss Sunshine - Grilled zucchini flowers, avocado, Persian feta, tomato, fresh basil, rye, pepita and sun flower seed pangattao ($16)
We really enjoyed breakfast at The Burrow - while prices were not cheap, it is around the price point expected for good quality breakfast pretty much at most places these days. The Burrow is also open for lunch and dinner service and we will definitely be back to try out more dishes from their lunch and dinner menus very soon!
