Having set out early yesterday Sunday morning, we decided to have a breakfast stop in Mornington. We parked by the Information centre and wondered over to a busy beachside looking pitstop of a place - 'The Boyz 4 Breakie'.
Sounds more like a boyband than a breakfast cafe. Look at their logo and it almost resembles an old vinyl cover!
Nevertheless, this place was rocking with people inside as well as outside. As we approached the cafe, I could see a small queue just forming inside. It appeared that we had unknowingly come to the place to go for breakfast in Mornington.
Luckily, we managed to get a table upstairs on the mezzanine level which gave us all great views of the ground floor and into the open kitchen. I could see the chefs all busily preparing big breakfasts. And believe me, they are big here.
Plate after plate of poached, fried, scrambled, any which way you-like-it eggs were being carted off to tables by every available waitress.
I decided to go for 'Poached eggs on sourdough toast' ($9.50) with a side of bacon ($2.50) and a side of baked beans ($2.50). And to be really English about it, I ordered a pot of English breakfast tea. What better way to start off the day!
My three companions all went for 'The Turkish' - two fried eggs, bacon and tomato salsa on toasted turkish bread. This was my first choice, but I decided against the fried eggs for the more healthy choice of poaching.
Unfortunately, we had a bit of wait for our food and drinks to arrive. Although this place was busy, some tables seemed to get theirs quickly.
When they did finally arrive, my poached eggs were beautifully done and all was forgiven. Golden yellow, rich tasting yolks and perfectly cooked whites. The bacon was deliciously crispy and the beans were just heaven. If I could have made it even better, I would have requested my beans to be cooked until just soft and mushy; just how I like them - which is probably a bit too wierd for some.
The Turkish's all looked amazing good as well. The eggs weren't greasy and the salsa was diced fresh tomato with red onion and chopped basil.
This place was super busy with the waitresses constantly bringing out breakfasts. It's a sunny sort of place with upbeat music, sunny interior, smiley (although a tad slow) service and great breakfasts, served all day long as well!
P.S. This place also does lunch and dinner.
