Ah, it's been a while since a breakfast post, and I'm delighted to say that I've finally crossed off another place on the wishlist! We tend to celebrate Mother's Day earlier or later in the month to avoid the crowds, and this year I decided to take her to Cibi for their famous Japanese breakfast except..I very selfishly rolled over in bed, swiped the snooze button and went on dreaming for another while.
"What a terrible daughter!"
Is what you're probably thinking, and I know! When the visual image of sheep jumping over fence did clear I flew into a wild frenzy and, determined not to disappoint, decided the belated Mother's Day breakfast was still to be had - just somewhere closer.
On weekends they also do high tea - my mum loves her coffee + cake, so this was perfect! Not to mention that for 8 weeks (currently Week 6) they're donating 20% of their proceeds to local charities is well, so there's another reason why you should bolt over when you're free :)
|The usual latte. I've learnt to leave the judging to the coffee enthusiasts; all I can say is it smelt and tasted seductively good.|
|Sweet corn, pumpkin & coriander fritters plus poached eggs, avocado and tomato chutney|
|Roasted pork belly & apple and zucchini remoulade, coriander, chilli jam and|
While I don't attend VU I'm very tempted to after this satisfying meal :D
