Brunch at Savichee Cafe, Pyrmont
I was catching up with two of my oldest and dearest friends from school – the doctor and the adviser. We have been so busy with our respective lives, that we hardly ever have the time to catch up. The doc and I met at orientation day and we met the adviser the year after.
I have run pass Savichees café a couple of times now and have loved the deck and view of Anzac Bridge. It’s a different kind of view, not one that I see every day. I have heard good things about this café, so was definitely keen to try. The café can be found at the end of Harris Street, near the water and opposite the park.
We sat inside; it was just way too hot to sit outside – another 35 degree weekend in Sydney. Even with the heat, I needed coffee – the body was ‘awake’ but the mind, it needed a caffeine injection. They use campos coffee here, it was strong and a great wake up call!
The doc and the adviser had the eggs benedict: poached eggs, smoked salmon, wilted spinach drizzled with hollandaise sauce ($17.90). It looked FANTASTIC and I had serious food envy! Unfortunately, I didn’t have any, but both the doc and advisor demolished this and said that it was really good.
I opted for something less ‘heavy’, scrambled eggs with bacon and a side of mushroom with sour dough toast ($14). The scrambled eggs were moist, but not as creamy as I have hoped. The sautéed mushrooms were wonderful, but you can never get that wrong right? The strips of bacon were crispy and cooked to perfection.
It was a hot and busy day, however, service was excellent. Our bottles of water were always refilled and the food was good. I am keen to try their lunch menu though, the smoked salmon salad and their wagyu burger with fries and aioli sounds divine.
We reminisced about the past (clearly showing our age!), talked about the current and the future. Can’t believe I have known you both for over a decade and a half! WOW! I have truly missed our girlie chat, and thanks so much for all the advices. Let’s catch up sometimes soon.
