My folks were at Mornington for the weekend, so JT, JMA and I took the opportunity to spoil ourselves with some brunch.
Address: 583 Gilbert Road, Preston, VIC 3072
Monday - Sunday: Breakfast & Lunch
What we ordered
- Baked eggs with spinach
- Roast pumpkin sandwich
- The Chesh
- Hot Chocolate
- Orange Juice
We came at the right time - just right before they started to fill up, so we managed to get snag a table and place our orders in before the place got busy.
I really enjoyed my roast pumpkin sandwich was full of flavour; toasted bread with pinenut and cottage cheese spread, roast pumpkin and fresh spinach leaves. It’s a combination that always wins in my books.
Initially, I was going to order the baked eggs with spinach leaves, but I changed my order to something else when JMA said she wanted to order the exact same thing. Lucky I did, as it turned out to be a bit disappointing. The flavours were great initially, but it became a bit of a bore for her as she worked her way through the dish.
Thanks to the hearty combination meat and veg, The Chesh JT ordered was full of flavour; scrambled eggs with bacon, sausage, spinach, tomato, and baked beans on toast. It should be noted though that the baked beans were a little bland - they were sweet, but there wasn’t much tomato flavour or salt either. Nevertheless, the quality of the bacon really saved the dish.
On our way out, we bought a star shaped gingerbread cookie. It was an expensive little thing for $1, but that one bite really left me wanting more.
If I happen to be in the area, I definitely wouldn’t mind revisiting Cheshire for brunch. Maybe next time, I’ll try some of their maybe try some pancakes. The gingerbread cookie has left me curious about their sweets.
