Mmmm, Corn fritters

Breakfast is one of my favourite meals and I could happily eat breakfast foods three times a day.

So I was a happy girl when we decided to hit Watercress Restaurant in Northlakes for a Sunday breakfast. I had been hearing a lot about this place run by Al and Rebecca. You don't get a feel for the place from the outside, but inside it has a lovely, relaxed tropical feel. I love that there is space between the tables, I could gesture as big as I wanted and didn't have to apologise to anyone.

I didn't even need to look at the menu, I had heard about the corn fritters and I will climb a mountain, swim an ocean or wear stonewash to reach a good corn fritter. That is how much I love them. Presentation was beautiful (thanks Al), the combination of avocado, poached egg, tomato and sauces were perfect. This greedy girl was satisfied. A big plus for good coffee.

My husband had Eggs Benedict with bacon. He couldn't tell me what he thought he was too busy inhaling this.
The girls also got appropriately sized and priced children's bacon and eggs. I could have taken a photo but didn't because I was too busy eating by then.

As Arnie says "I'll be back".
