Taste of Freedom is a Big Brekky Brioche

A beautiful spring morning and a Big Brekky Brioche.

Cheese, egg perfectly fried with that only just juicy yolk, spinach and multi layers of bacon.

The spicy sweetness of the sesame seeded brioche bun and home-made tomato chutney is reminiscent of the French South Pacific, lunching by the crystal waters of the Île des Pins (Isle of Pines) … but St Kilda Grocery Bar on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, will do for now.

Happiness is two hash browns

Easter Monday Morning. A grey, sullen sky and a chill in the wind as if Winter’s icy fingertips are creeping around the corner.

Shake off the gloom, grab the hat and saunter down to Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, in search of a sign life …  and here it is, The Grocery Bar where breakfast is big and the warm smile is free.

Two hash browns, baby spinach hiding under scrambled eggs, smashed avo, and owner Georgia’s home-made tomato relish. $16.90.

This is the way to greet the day.

The Sun is even poking through the clouds …
