Breakfast at Angelo's House, Toowoomba

For Easter Sunday, my family and I went for breakfast at Angelo's House in Toowoomba. We had the place to ourselves for most of the time (we arrived early at 8am),  which made for a wonderful peaceful dining experience.

On arrival, our friendly waiter showed us to our table out on the verandah:  

I loved the menus and table numbers decorated with drawings of Australian wildflowers:

You need to get your priorities right, so I started with a flat white coffee:

It was creamy and not too hot, so it was perfect for me.

For breakfast, I ordered the potato roesti ($16.90).  This was not the grated potato cakes that come to mind from the name, but comprised lovely fluffy potato cakes topped with a runny poached egg, and sailing atop creamed green peas and creme fraiche, with baby spinach and fetta, and lemon on the side:

It was absolutely delicious, and made for a lovely  light breakfast - leaving room for Easter eggs!

From our verandah table, we had a view of Laurel Bank Park across the road:

I was also rather taken by this vase of proteas on a verandah side table:

We all enjoyed our breakfasts at Angelo's House, and would definitely repeat the experience.

What a perfect meal for the 4 day weekend. And good to see that there was room for Easter eggs! :D

What a beautiful place to have Easter breakfast...the garden view, the flowers, the wildflower drawings...and the food looked delicious and pretty, too. I am not familiar with proteas so I am going in search of what those flowers are and if we have them here in the States. :-)
