Review - Blue Orange

Brunch at the beach strikes a summery cord in me, so it was with particular relish we headed down to Blue Orange, a nicely wood-panelled retro feel cafe, in busy Bondi Beach. Think blond wood, cork ceiling and lights wreathed in dried leaves.

I really liked the Orange and Strawberry Juice ($4.80) - they just put a small layer of the strawberry juice at the bottom, and it really worked! You can also have a spice Bloody Mary ($10.50) if you need to power through a hangover.

The coffee, mine being a Latte ($3.00) was also quite acceptable. My breakfast option was a sweet one - Ricotta and Passionfruit Soufflé Pancakes with Banana ($12.50) - which impressed, particularly because I have never had a soufflé wrapped in a pancake before.

We also tried one of their clever savoury options - Melted Brie, Roast Onion and Tomato French Toast with Capsicum and Chilli Relish ($10.50), which again was a new breakfast menu item for me!

All in all, I was very happy, and would probably on the basis of breakfast, return for dinner. I perused whilst enjoying my breakfast, a small but good wine list, with most available by the glass ($5.50-$9.50). I also browsed their great little menu - I would have probably started with Peking Duck Salad with Five-Spiced Pancakes and Caramelised Figs ($12.50) and followed it with a slow-cooked Shoulder of Flinders Lamb with Roast Eggplant, Fetta and Mint ($25.50).

This place is well worth a trip to the beach - and it was quite delightful to do a breakfast review... I must arrange more of these, I love exciting weekend breakfasts.

Re: looks yum!
Yes, near to public transport. Luckily we went before it has really warmed up, so parking was easy - got right out the front.
