Machine Laundry Cafe is a Salamanca institution - it's been there for years and is very popular. It had been a long time since I'd eaten there so J and I went down to Salamanca for a Saturday morning brunch.
We ordered drinks - a fantastic mixed fruit frappe for me, and fresh orange juice for J.
Thom's Thing: garlic sourdough with avocado salsa, chickpeas, fresh tomato, basil, baby spinach, grilled haloumi and lemon ($13). I also added crispy pancetta to the order ($3.50). Delicious, especially the haloumi and pancetta.
J had poached eggs on multigrain toast ($9.50) with a selection of extra sides - mushrooms ($3), bacon ($3.50) and pork and sundried tomato chipolatas ($3.50).
Very tasty and good value. There's heaps more on the menu that I'd like to try, so we'll be back soon. I love places that offer more than just the standard eggs+sides for breakfast.
