Items on the menu include the ‘Cheeky Piggy ($19.00): Slow braised pork cheek, sauerkraut, gruyere and gherkins, on a toasted bun’ and the ‘Dukkah Eggs ($17.50): Crumbed poached eggs, cauliflower purée, pomegranate, pine nuts, and sautéed spinach’. We ordered our food but it did not arrive for a long, long time... There were not many patrons at the time so I’m not sure why there was such a lengthy wait.
An hour later and I was considering eating my serviette as I was so hungry but thankfully our meals finally appeared. I picked ‘Scarvelli’s Benedict ($18.50): Poached eggs, grilled asparagus, mushrooms, and buerre noisette béarnaise on rosemary and potato bread.’ This dish was rich and decadent, with a generous serve of sautéed mushrooms. It definitely hit the spot.
My dining companion chose the ‘Rolling In ($11.00): Fried egg, bacon, rocket, aged cheddar, and hollandaise on a brioche bun’. The oozing yolk mingled with the rich hollandaise and made this meal very moreish indeed. It was a splendid dish that my companion was very happy with.
Even though we did have a long wait, I preferred Scarvelli’s to Snow Pony and I will definitely be back to have another of their amazing coffees.
