Popping into Willow and Spoon at 1130 am, we were disappointed to learn that we had stepped in when they just switched from the ‘breakfast’ to ‘lunch’ menu. 😦
Seeing our disappointment, the server checked with the kitchen if they could still serve us breakfast and yes, we could!
We were absolutely thrilled to be able to try their breakfast, because Willow and Spoon is the Winner of Allianz ‘Most Liked Café in Brisbane’ award; also clearly stated in the café:
We were seated in the front which was quite small but apparently, patrons can walk right through the kitchen out into the outdoor dining area, which is essentially a backyard decked out with a bunch of tables and chairs and a groovy art piece painted onto a brick wall. (Weekend Notes)
We liked the cosy, vintage feel of the café, which reminded us of kopitiam
Their spoon and appreciation corner:
D’s Long Black ($3.90):
Darien’s and Abby’s Chai Latte ($3.90):
This is another café with interesting teaspoons, like Pablo! 😉
J’s Iced Coffee ($6):
Pricey, as compared to the other drinks, but J loves the rich flavour of coffee amidst the creaminess from the ice-cream.
The ladies had ‘Harvest – Herbed rösti, asparagus, field mushrooms, poached eggs, bean ragout and sourdough’:
The ladies were originally a bit sceptical of how the poached eggs would taste because they looked over-done, but they were actually done quite perfectly – egg white well-done, outside of egg yolk “medium-well” with the centre yolk runny; the herbs in the rösti was not too overpowering and was done quite well – crispy on the outside but cooked and soft on the inside.
The men had ‘Persephone – Smoked Salmon, dukkah spiced scrambled eggs, roast capsicum gauzetto, Turkish toast, pomegranate molasses’:
It’s the first time the men are trying dukkah, an Egyptian spice, and they thought it was a good combination.
Since they change their menu monthly, and introduce new delicious, mouth-watering dishes, we’ll definitely be back to try something new! 😉
