Brewtown has taken up residency in the back streets of Newtown, originally an old Berkelouw book store. It is a new cafe from the team behind Gnome Espresso on Crown Street at Surry Hills. So naturally the cafe offers great coffee and good looking breakfast dishes. I shall leave the pictures to do most of the talking.
Frenchie ordered a helluva breakfast - grilled black sausage home made hash browns, canadian bacon and house relish with boiled eggs [$16].
I ordered baked polenta with mushrooms, grilled asparagus, poached egg and parmesan [$15], the flavours work well together but my egg was over done but all in all a pleasant dish for a hungry stomach.
Since I have never tried a cronut, I had to check it out of myself. Feeling particularly patriotic, I ordered a true blue lamington cronut. The texture of the cronut was a bit dry for me. Again, this is my first cronut so I'm not sure what kind of textures and taste I should be looking for.
Not feeling quite satisfied with dessert, we decided to try a family owned gelato bar, Cow & the Moon artisan gelato within walking distance in the next suburb, Enmore. This place offers a great selection of flavours and have won the Australian Grand Dairy awards and Sydney Royal Fine Food show give Gelato Messina a run for their money.
Cakes of the day.
We got a cup that fit two flavours - pistachio and hazelnut, and left me feeling happily satisfied.
A must try, the affogato with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is absolute yumminess. I'll definitely be going back to try other flavours when I need a gelato fix.
