Alcove Café and Deli in Wilston Village is one such dining establishment that will help you out when you’re in need to something bacony and eggy to try to forget anything vodka-y.
What breakfast delights await here? Let’s take a look.
From the breakfast menu we tried:
- Pa’s pie: slow cooked savoury mince topped with creamy mash potato, two poached eggs and soft pita
- Alcove breakfast: poached eggs, bacon, potato apple rosti, grilled local haloumi, relish and organic sourdough toast
Underneath the fresh pita bread of pa’s pie was a mountain of savoury mince which was more satisfying than that feeling you get when you rip off a bandaid. The eggs were poached perfectly, adding a touch of decadence to the tasty mince.
I loved the big plate of breakfast delights that comprised the Alcove breakfast. The bacon and haloumi were both well grilled and the potato apple rosti was a unique take on the old hash brown, and made it a bit special.
The fresh avocado, spinach and dill really picked up what would otherwise have been a pretty heavy plate of food.
While there are no guarantees that the breakfasts here will make your hangover go away, it will remind you that you are capable of making good decisions now and then. And yes, when I say "you" I mean "me"...
