Brekkie at Eca Bar, Darlinghurst

Trying to find cafés at 7 am in the morning can be a little difficult! There aren’t many that opens at that hour and rightly so! In a perfect world, people should still be sleeping at 7 am, have breakfast at 9am with friends, and start work at either 11 am or midday! But that doesn’t mean you leave work at 8pm, no no, that wouldn’t be a ‘perfect’ world now would it?

I was catching up with B for our weekly catch up. We have driven and walked past this place many times, it’s on the corner of Darlinghurst Road, and Liverpool Road. It’s a couple of shops down from one of my favourite restaurants, Fish Face. This café is always busy especially on weekends, so we were keen to try.

The coffee here is good – there is really not a shortage of ‘good’ coffee places in Sydney, however, my favourite is still Single Origin.

Both B and I ordered the same thing, we couldn’t go pass the bircher muesli with vanilla poached pears, yogurt, fresh fruit and toasted almonds ($10.50). It was served in a small-ish bowl, it didn’t look as though there were a lot of bircher, however we were both pleasantly surprised.

I love the colours from the blueberries, raspberries, and almonds – it was just so colourful! The bircher was a little thick, a little like porridge but better! I loved the poached pear, the vanilla bean yogurt, and the combination of blueberries and raspberries – perfect summer fruits. B wasn’t a huge fan of poached pears, so more for me! The bowl was quite deceptive, it was actually quite a filling a breakfast!

The scrambled eggs looked amazing, and so did the poached eggs with hummus, and avocado – will definitely have to come back and visit. The food is good, just a little on the pricey side. Service is very down to earth and efficient, and staff friendly!

It was a quick but awesome catch up with B! Looking forward to catching up a lot more soon. xx

    Wow the raspberries, blueberries and almonds on your bircher muesli look so enticing. And lol, I agree, work should start at midday and finish at 5!
