BREAKFAST THIEVES

420 Gore St, Fitzroy - (03) 9416 4884

I visited Breakfast Thieves a few weeks ago with a friend for Sunday brunch. The cafe is close to my gym and it's always buzzing whenever I walk past on weekends. 

We arrived around 11am and it was easy to get a table straight away. The place is cute with old style crockery and jugs filled with fresh flowers. 



'Ms Omega' - Home-cured ocean trout, poached eggs with hollandaise sauce on sourdough toast ($15.50)



















Breakfast Thieves offer three versions of the traditional eggs benedict on weekends and I ordered 'Ms Omega' with house cured ocean trout, which was pretty tasty.


My dish was quite a generous serve, but nothing like my friend's sweet corn and basil spiced fritters on homemade baked beans with side of smashed avocado, toast and poached eggs. Her dish was epic!

Corn fritters ($17.50)

She liked the texture of the crunchy fritters, but thought the taste was a bit blend - she was expecting more of a kick from the basil. Overall, the other ingredients of the dish worked well together and although she did put in her best efforts to finish it off, it was just too big for one person. Come to think of it, this might be the perfect brekkie order for the hubby...

We stayed on talking / drinking coffee, so I decided to order a muesli slice for 'dessert' (this is Sunday brunch after all!).

Muesli slice

The muesli slice was either a bit too dry or a day old - it didn't taste quite right and I left it barely untouched. The coffees on the other hand were pretty good.

I think this would be a great place to hang out with friends chatting and sipping coffee, which was what we did at the end of our meal. Breakfast Thieves is not too crowded and tucked away in a quiet leafy street. It's a very enjoyable place to just chill.
