A gem, Flat White, Woollahra

I was catching up with a dear friend, M, for breakfast, one of the few people I would get up for these days at ‘that’ time and recommended this cute little place, Flat White, in Woollahra. I used to work in Woollahra but never knew that this place existed and I don’t know why it has taken me this long to visit! It is truly a great find!

I have heard raving reviews of this place, from friends and ex colleagues and I can see why. Flat White is a relatively small cafe, but yet cozy. There are three seating area options: the counter along the open windows with bar stools, the stainless-steel-topped tables inside or outside on the path under the sun. M and I opted to sit inside, and I had the perfect view of the kitchen, whilst M had the view of the popular Lord Dudley Hotel.

Started with my large skim flat white – there’s really no point in starting a conversation without my shot of caffeine!

It was a full day of eating out for me – breakfast, lunch AND dinner! I thought I would start the day with something healthy. Bircher muesli with rhubarb compote, apple and buttermilk – it really had me at ‘rhubarb compote’. The bircher was excellent! Moist and juicy, topped with thinly sliced strawberries, apple and rhubarb compote. It was deliciously filling, and possibly one of my favourite bircher thus far! (B – you have to try their bircher!)

M opted for something naughtier (if I wasn’t going out for lunch that day, I would have probably picked the same thing!) – croque madame with tomato relish and OMG! It was the biggest croque madame I have ever seen. TWO THICK slices of brioche toasted with ham and cheese, topped with a perfectly cooked fried egg. It was definitely too early to eat something that heavy but it was definitely EPIC! I love the sweetness of the brioche and the oozy cheese – it was SOOOO good!

I certainly do love my catch ups with M – I don’t know what I would have done without her!

I noticed someone ordering the ricotta hotcakes and WOW – I thought ‘I have to get me one of those’ … next time! The food here is definitely generous, and the coffee is excellent. Their lunch menu looks fantastic also – pork sandwich with crunchy crackling – will DEFINITELY have to come back!

The food and service is excellent. I have to admit, it wasn’t cheap, $20 per person, but hey it is Woollahra! I can imagine this place being extremely busy on the weekend! I’m keen to try their lunch menu, or at least their heavier breakfast dish! I think this could be a new love? Yes I am fickle!
