If you’re travelling down the NSW South Coast over summer the Princes Highway goes right through Milton, making this picturesque town an ideal place to refuel. Winning our business merely by being the only café open for breakfast on a public holiday Monday, Brown Sugar, offers both indoor and outdoor spaces to dine. With the outdoor tables showing the effects of being right on a high-traffic highway, we headed inside to enjoy well-made Gabriel Coffee in a strong Flat White ($4) and a Latte ($4).
The well-dressed crowd inside looked like the intended audience of South Coast Style Magazine. They were mostly Milton weekenders, busily asking each other: "Are you going back today?"
With juice freshly squeezed on premises, we were able to remove the apple juice and enjoy an Orange, Carrot and Ginger Juice ($8/small) tailored to our preferences. A Bacon and Egg Roll ($7) felt like good value, and showcased good country produce across both the fried egg and thick, tasty bacon.
Flexibility was also the name of the game in their Eggs on Sourdough ($11), which diners can customize to their liking with a choice of sides. We chose golden fingers of Haloumi ($2.50) and more of that delicious Bacon ($3.00).
The whole breakfast for two people felt like reasonable value, coming in just shy of forty bucks.
