Bathers' Pavillion Cafe

Beautiful venue, stunning breakfast
On a day off, we headed off towards Taronga Zoo to see the 7 month old baby elephant Luk Choi.
This was a perfect excuse to go to the Bathers' Pavilion for some brunch!  What a perfect venue - right on the beach, with the sounds of the waves lapping against the sand.

It was rather grey that day, but it didn't take away from the stunning location.

I love the bright coloured napkins - it's so..happy!
 Eggs Benedict with short bacon and hollandaise sauce
Smooth hollandaise sauce, that was subtle, and not too tart..yum!
Apple filled brioche French toast with cinnamon sugar, ricotta and raisins
Oh, this is how French Toast should be made all the time.  It was divine! 
There was not only the baked apple you see on top of the brioche, there was a soft apple puree sandwiched between two pieces of brioche.
(Although we asked for extra maple syrup, and were told we had to pay $2.50 for the pleasure)

Everyone's gone baby elephant-mad at the moment! Luk Chai is a cutie, though. I've never been to Bathers Pavilion, but it looks gorgeous.

oh i love the napkins at the cafe. they do make you smile with happiness don't they? love the plumpness of the poached eggs - it looks like the yolks are going to burst forth any minute!

I do miss North side life at times like this! :) I used to live up the road from here *sigh*. I also love the sorbets and ice creams at the kiosk next door :)

What a cute baby elephant. I would take it home as a pet but I don't think the body corporate would allow it.

A good hollandaise reminds me why I love eggs benedict so much. Pity a lot of cafes stuff it up.
