After all my whining about breakfast in my last review, I will offer up that one of the first things I did after getting off the plane was go and have a good breakfast. Since my lunch review of Ripples Sydney Wharf I have been dying to go back with the significant other, ideally to try out their breakfast menu. I had a quick peek while I was there, and it had all my favourites, ramped up a notch. So off we ventured and on a blissfully sunny day to boot. Let me just say, their Cinnamon and Raisin Brioche French Toast ($13) with poached rhubarb and crème fraiche could make even a rainy Monday morning look gay.
Ripples Sydney Wharf
A platter bearing plump Caramelised Apple and Ricotta Hotcakes ($14.50) with house-smoked hickory bacon, honeycomb butter and maple syrup is a joy to behold and devour. I’ve left savoury for next time.
When your job requires you to dine at different venues each time you go out, it’s actually the ones you choose to revisit that become significant. Who’d blame me for liking this setting, a great niche on Sydney’s picturesque harbour complete with bright orange and red plastic chairs (almost a work of art themselves) and al fresco boardwalk tables? It’s an obvious drawcard, but it’s not what got me back, I came for the food and a nicely made Karmee Coffee, and I would return again.
