A break from breakfast tradition.
Three Bags Full is in Abbottsford, and on the one occasion I visited before the place was jammed with people and there was a line for a table. Only in Melbourne do we line up for brunch. Melburnians take brunch seriously.
This time around however we arrived a little after 8am- thanks to dropping the car off for a service bright and early- we had our pick of the tables.
We started off with a tea for two. English Breakfast for him. Calmer Sutra chai for me.
Although much of the menu sounds delicious I find Three Bags Full one of these places- that seem to be popping up a lot now- that make things a little too fancy. When it comes to breakfast I tend to go for things that are simple and tasty. Lunch and dinner can be more “interesting” but breakfast is for the classics, in my opinion.
After a few sweeps of the menu I went with the sautéed mushrooms, which would ordinarily come with goat’s cheese, but things of that nature are on hold until September, disappointing.
When it arrived… holy cow that’s a whole lotta mushrooms! They were really tasty, super mushroom-y with the sweetness from the shallots. But halfway through I was struggling. It was just. So. Much. Mushroom. Half a serve of the ‘shrooms with a nice egg would have done with trick.
We were in and out in about half an hour, we are nothing if not efficient in our breakfast pursuits.
If you’re in the Abbottsford area, check out Three Bags Full, just make sure you get there early!
