The Hardware Societe, Melbourne

The Hardware Societe was also on my list of places to go whilst in Melbourne. I had one morning off before an afternoon of gruelling meetings, so suggested that we come here for brunch. Thankfully we didn’t have to wait at all, it was a weekday, and the place was relatively busy but we managed to get a table straight away. Located on Hardware Street, this place is super cosy and cute and the staffs were uber friendly.


I have heard that the baked eggs are fantastic, but I couldn’t go past the breakfast board which consisted of jamon, salmon, chicken liver pate with gerkin, and two perfectly poached eggs!


OH MY GOODNESS – it was one of the nicest breakfast I have ever had, better than a breakfast buffet – it had everything that I wanted. The jamon, delicious – you don’t get anything like that in Hong Kong, the chicken liver pate was smooth and creamy.


The poached eggs – cooked to perfection. I absolutely loved this breakfast and would happily come back to have another. I don’t think I could ever get sick of this meal.


‘The Mother’ loves sardines, so opt for sardines on toast which sat on a thick slice of bread. He absolutely loved this, so much that he didn’t even offer me any. He did say that it was ‘delicious’.


I can see why this place is popular, everything on the menu sounded wonderful and I could see this as my ‘local’ – even if I didn’t live nearby! Service was excellent, Dragon loved all the wait staff and they were uber friendly, making her feel comfortable.

If you haven’t been, definitely worth the visit – you won’t regret it, but the place does get busy so come early or expect to wait for 20 – 30 mins or so. Thank goodness we came on a weekday. No waiting, and was seated immediately!

    I love Hardware Societe – I really love sitting at the bench and watching all the action in the kitchen.
