Mixed business was quite the interesting find on social media. As we arrive to the venue we saw people standing outside and thought to ourselves it’s gotta be good there is a queue on Sunday brunch time. What is interesting about this particular cafe is that the name is nowhere to be seen on the outside of the shopfront. I guess if the kitchen is that good, there is no need to advertise.
We didn’t have too long to wait before being seated at a communal table and ordering our coffees when we starting. We both had a look over the menu and were told about the specials for that day.
I decided to go for the Buckwheat Hotcake & Tassie Smoked Salmon ($18) as it was a little out of my comfort zone but it had a poached egg served with it, I added an extra egg also. Mr. B went for the Grilled Pancetta, Poached Eggs On Toast ($17).
Mr. B’s dish looked fresh on arrival. His eggs were cooked perfectly and sat on a tasty portion on fresh avocado. The addition of bacon and the softened tomatoes rounded off the dish!
My dish was was scrumptious! I had three eggs, much to Mr. B’s envy and they were all well poached and oozed a runny yellow yolk to add moisture to the dish. I cannot bypass fresh salmon on a dish ans the portion on this dish didn’t disappoint. The fresh beetroot was something I was a little reluctant to try but I was pleasantly surprised. I would definitely order the dish again!
I certainly would not object to returning to Mixed Business. It is only up the street and there are certainly more dishes I would like to try out.
