Jethro Canteen is located on a busy corner of Burnley and Swan Street.
The cafe itself has both indoor and out door seating and is very spacious. On this particular Saturday morning we decided a seat indoors was the best option. We were warmly greeted by a waitress,guided to the table and handed our menus. I ordered my usual Long Black with milk on the side and Mr B ordered a long black I feel like Ms DeG has been replaced in coffee orders.
There are many amazing items to choose from on the menu and I was torn between two particular options. I was stuck between the Louisiana Plate ($20), without the prawns,and the Panzella ($17). In the end, I asked the waitress for her recommendation and she said that the Panzella was her favourite breakfast so I went with that.
She also delivered our coffees in cute little cups which reminded me of the cups often seen at a function.
My breakfast arrived and I couldn’t wait to tuck in! The portion size is rather large and I thought it looked rustic and very appetising!
There was a lot of bread on the dish and it was drizzled with a tasty oil. There was a perfect amount of Panzella on the dish and the poached eggs were delightful. The addition of the seeds added a little crunch to the dish. It’s a big dish and a rather filling dish but I would definitely order it again.
Mr. B wolfed down his Chicken on brioche. I agreed that brioche is definitely a favourite burger bun and the fact that it is black, makes it all the more interesting. Mr. B wasn’t a fan of the tater tots but he enjoyed the main element of the dish, the burger. The chicken reminded him of a KFC style fried chicken, I also thought it was delicious.
I would definitely return to Jethro Canteen and considering it is so close by, how could I not! In the area, I have also visited Pillar of Salt and Top Paddock ♦
