As we sit at our dining room table, sipping on a glass of pinot with the scent of a tiger lily candle drifting in the air, we’re blissfully dwelling over our beautiful morning.
The sun was shining on this comforting autumns day – the perfect scene to be strolling the streets of South Melbourne.
For locals of this area, Saturday morning means market morning. Therefore, finding a park was rather tricky…
Nevertheless, after a few rounds, we found one!
Now to breaky….we already had a cafe in mind, one that we visited way back, in the year of 2012.
To think that two years has already gone by makes you realise how quickly life just goes.
Anyway, lets not get emotional this is a breakfast post after all
So back to G i d d i u p.
Despite the fact that this cafe is quite small, the white walls and wide windows creates a sense of space. They have kept to the theme of black and white with minimal decor, yet thats all they need as the simplicity reflects its modern character.
Everything on the menu shouts out yum, with avocado popping up on a few dishes. This automatically drew us in. We decided to opt for a deconstructed meal of poached eggs on gluten free bread (of course), with a side of avo and smoked salmon – our usual pick for when we’re craving something fresh and simple.
It not only gave us the energy we needed after our morning run, but also made us feel h a p p y inside. After a tough week filled with stress chaos and confusion, this was definitely needed.
There aren’t many cafes out there that can give you that ‘feel good’ feeling, sorry guys, not sure how else to put it. This cafe literally just makes you feel good. Thats good hey?
