A few weeks ago, my Mum and I went with my brother to breakfast to celebrate our respective birthdays. I organised for us to go to Engine Room Café, near the railway station, as it had been nominated as one of the best cafes for breakfast in Toowoomba.
I started with a skinny flat white, which was pretty good:
For brekky, I chose the Veggie Brekky ($15) - mushrooms, asparagus, haloumi, poached eggs, baby spinach and tomatoes with hollandaise sauce:
On the whole, this was very good. I would have had one less egg and skipped the haloumi, which was rather dry, but otherwise I couldn't fault this dish.
Mum went for the omelette with bacon, parmesan and baby spinach ($15):
She said it was a little dry for her.
My brother couldn't help himself and had the Big Breakfast ($20) - rib fillet, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, beans and a poached egg with ciabatta:
He ate everything except the beans, which he doesn't like. I tried a spoon of the beans, and they were very spicy, even for me. However, my brother enjoyed this breakfast fry-up.
The staff were quite friendly and the atmosphere of the big open room was quite inviting. I'd go again.
