My friend requested me to bring him to Burnt Orange for his 'birthday brunch'
Burnt Orange is located in Mosman.
I'm always down for any cafe that's located in Mosman :D
The place was incredibly beautiful!
Argh, I regretted not taking any photos of the cafe itself.
There are a few tables that overlooks the river, and the view is just incredible.
Having brunch with this view, on a sunny day, is just perfect :)
I opted for their eggs benedict cause I wanted something light and gentle on the tummy.
& I can say that dish was pretty well executed!
I especially loved that they used a brioche instead of regular toast.
The brioche was soft enough that I could just slice my knife through the whole thing. Yum!
Eggs Benedict: Poached eggs on toasted brioche & hollandaise sauce w/ Tasmanian smoked salmon ($18)
Breakfast Bruschetta: Vine tomato & avocado salsa with smoked bacon and poached egg on grilled sourdough ($18)
Buttermilk pancakes w/ double smoked bacon and maple syrup ($15)
Had a taste of my friend's pancakes.
It was my first time trying bacon with pancakes.
I was pleasantly surprised that it does actually go well together!
You could really taste both it's sweet & savoury-ness when eating this dish.
The bacon was cooked really nicely.
It was also soft enough for you to just slice it through with ease. Mmm.
And of course, a meal is always incomplete without some dessert :)
Banoffee Pie w/ maple roasted pecans, dulce de leche and shaved chocolate ($13)
Rhubarb and Custard Crumble w/ vanilla bean ice cream ($12)
High praise on their Banoffee pie!
Every component came together really well.
There was also a small layer of bananas at the bottom which just tasted delightful.
Burnt Orange represents everything a cafe should be.
Great location, great atmosphere, great service & great food!
