The Foodrinkery is located in a quiet street off Warrigal road in Burwood East. I almost didn’t see it tucked at the end of a small strip of shops and next to a park.
I was there for breakfast with The Kiwi and KD, and as we were there early (9am on a Saturday) we had the place to ourselves for a good half an hour or so.
The fitout is clean and simple, and a bit funky as well.
Owner Damien Breen was on the floor and took our orders.
I started with an orange juice and the whipped avocado, ricotta, poached egg.
This is what my breakfast looked like when it was brought out.
This is what it looked like when I spread the avocado and ricotta mix over both pieces of toast and broke the egg.
It was a tasty breakfast but the avocado and ricotta mix was too cold, it had obviously just come straight out of the fridge and didn’t really work with the warm toast and egg. If this could be served at room temperature or heated up before serving it would be a true winner.
KD had two poached eggs with a side of avocado.
And The Kiwi had the same but added a mushroom as well.
They both really liked their food, saying the eggs were perfectly cooked and The Kiwi particularly loved the mushroom, which had been marinated or cooked with rosemary and garlic.
I then had a very very good hot chocolate while the girls had tea.
And the best bit?
For my food, the OJ and the hot chocolate, the total cost was $17 (and something cents, can’t remember exactly). Any way you look at it, that is a very good value breakfast.
I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to The Foodrinkery.
