Is this the best bacon and egg roll in the Eastern Suburbs? I’m going out on a limb to say: yes. I mean, it’s a pretty perfect food already. Crispy bacon. Eggs. Breakfast. Mmmm… But I’ve often had ones that are much more basic.
While still one of the cheapest items on their breakfast menu, at $8, I wasn’t expecting it to be so generous that you can’t pick it up to eat with your hands. I did order an add-on of haloumi for $4, and the slightly, rubbery texture of the haloumi, which I quite like was a surprisingly match for the slightly chewy quality of the toasted Turkish bread. I thought it was sensational.
And the coffee, with coffee art, was also very good indeed. In the meantime, Fernside had a constant stream of regulars coming in the door, greeted by the friendly host (who advised me right away to sit at the more comfortable seat where I ended up, rather than the one I’d chosen).
It has the feeling of a basic, neighbourhood cafe, and yet the colours and style are so instagrammable. From every angle it looked like a hipster photo shoot.
