Two Good Eggs Cafe, Surry Hills

Way back in May, when Tim and I went to Sydney for the football, we had brekky one morning at a great little cafe that I think deserves a write-up for being so fab. That cafe is Two Good Eggs in Surry Hills.  Two Good Eggs was a chance find when I did a Google search for places to eat breakfast, which brought up this Sydney Morning Herald review.  It sounded perfect and was in easy walking distance for us, so off we went to give it a go.

This is a shot of the interior, which appealed to my girly heart - after all, who could not love allusions to Paris, the city of love: 

Tim ordered a fresh mixed juice, which tasted suitably refreshing:

Tim is also the world's biggest porridge fan (and eats it every day), so naturally, he ordered the porridge with pear and rhubarb:

It  looks pretty good, doesn't it.

I am a sucker for baked eggs, so although I was tempted by the "goats on toast" (goats cheese with honey and walnut on sour cherry fruit toast), I went for the Spanish Baked Eggs with Spicy Salami, Black Olives and Manchego with Sourdough:

It tasted as devine as it looks - rich, meaty and filling, the kind of brekky to put hair on your chest and give you energy for the rest of the day.  I loved it!

I hate cafes where the staff think they are too cool for school.  However, the staff at Two Good Eggs were nothing of the sort - they were friendly, helpful, happy to answer my questions (including whether to choose the goats on toast or the Spanish eggs!) and amused rather than offended by my photo-taking. Oh, and the coffee is good!

If you happen to be near Surry Hills (I used to work there a long time ago), do give Two Good Eggs a go - the staff are lovely and the food is devine.

What a great name for a breakfast spot! Your spanish-style eggs look good and spicy - my husband would love that dish.
