Breakfast at The Burrow

Breakfast at The Burrow

| On 20, Oct 2013

As a semi-regular West End breakfast-goer, I was surprised to find The Burrow is open for more than an evening carbs binge on delicious pizza.

The Burrow, located on Mollison St – just a hop and a skip from the famous Gun Shop cafe, and is indeed open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from Tuesday through Sunday.

Puzzled as to how I had missed this important fact, I quickly checked the online menu to see if I had been missing out on something great.

I had.

Not only did the menu include options such as waffles, lemon bread and butter pudding and avocado on toast with roasted zucchini flowers, but most dishes were named after equally impressive films.

While it was difficult to move past the “Ham Solo” waffles, waffles served with bacon and maple syrup, my tastebuds steered me towards the Little Miss Sunshine (with added bacon) and my guest chose the whamwich with egg and avocado.

Both meals were fresh, hearty and delicious!

The Little Miss Sunshine (great movie!) was an interesting take on the classic avocado on toast.

Little Miss Sunshine - Grilled zucchini flowers, avocado, Persian fetta, tomato, fresh basil, finished with a rye, pepita and  sunflower seed pangrattato.

Roasted zucchini flowers, pepitas and feta beautifully topped the dish and added both texture and flavour.

The added bacon was extra crispy and made me glad that I chose to ignore my inner “fitspo” self.

The whamwich was a classic bacon, egg, avocado, tomato and aioli monstrosity squashed between crunchy turkish bread.

The quality ingredients and generous serving size made it an easy breakfast win.

The only fault was with the coffee – it was too cold!

At just above lukewarm temperature, we might have been better off asking for an iced latte or the like.

A pretty, but disappointingly cold cup o' joe.

A real disappointment considering our other beverage selection, the “pear-shaped” juice, was a delight – for all the senses!

Pear-shaped juice - Apple, pear, watermelon & mint.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend checking out The Burrow for breakfast during the week.

It upholds West End’s reputation as a Brisbane breakfast mecca with it’s generous servings, quality ingredients, interesting dishes and relaxed atmosphere. Hopefully my cold coffee was just a one off!
