Toby's Estate Coffee & Tea

My favourite thing to do is to go out and have a good breakfast (most often ends up brunch really!). It doesn't have to be a particularly big breakfast, but it must be a good, quality breakfast. And coffee is a must.

Toby's Estate in Chippendale is one of my favourite breakfast cafes. Not only is the coffee always spot on, but they have a great range of breakfast items. Watch out for their specials on the blackboard.

Special: French Toast with Berries and Bacon $11

Look at those massive chunks of french toast drizzled with maple syrup! This has got to be the best french toast I've ever had. The waitstaff tell me they use ciabatta for the french toast, unusual but perfect. Served with a berry compote and crispy bacon on the side, and a sea of maple syrup.

Scrambled eggs with bacon, roast tomato served with toast $11
Creamy folded layers of scrambled eggs, sourdough toast, crispy bacon. This is a good old-fashioned breakfast done well.

Piccolo latte $3
I love the taste of their roast. It's strong, and the crema provides a nice toasty, caremelly flavour.

Other favourites (all under $10):
Sourdough toast with avocado, tomato and basil
Sour cherry toast with a side of ricotta and honey

On a side note, I have great success in making good coffees at home using their beans. I take their Broadway Blend ($11 for 250g).
