One long weekend PG was in the mood to surprise me and take me to brunch at a place that I hadn’t chosen, yet a place that he knew I had mentioned I’d wanted to visit. This always gets me excited :) Doesn’t take much. Just tell me you’re surprising me with food and i’ll be bouncing off the walls!
Of course as soon as he tells me that there’s a surprise around the corner, all of a sudden I become a detective. I like to see if I can actually figure it out with no clues…usually I surprise myself with how good I am! :p And this time I did guess right, although didn’t want to tell PG this since he was so excited haha…you can never be too sure either until you’re actually there! And what an amazing surprise it was…Breakfast Thieves! I”ve been wanting to come for a while now. And of course as soon as I see corn fritters on a menu…I must try!
I would definitely return with friends. Loved the intimate atmosphere, and the service was great. My meal was not too heavy and the fritters were cooked to perfection with great flavours. PG loved his french toast as well, and again was quite light. I can see why this place has taken off as quickly as it has. We came quite early, so were seated as soon as we arrived…definitely recommend doing the same, because I’ve heard this place can get quite busy after 9.30am or so, and that it was as we were leaving.
