Restaurant Review: Breakfast at Crumpet, Vic Park.

Having heard good reviews & keen for a stomach-rumbling-reducing Sunday morning brunch-date, one of my besties and I made our way down to Crumpet in Vic Park.

When we got there it was PACKED and we were very lucky to snare a table outside as a couple were leaving. Unfortunately their dirty dishes were left there for a good 20 minutes before we had to ask for them to be removed.

There is also no queue system for getting a table and we were told they couldn’t keep track of who got there first, which is understandable but disappointing – perhaps they didn’t realise how popular their little cafe was going to be as there were lots of people turning up only to leave due to no available seating.

So grumpy stuff out of the way! I ordered the ‘Omnomlette‘ ($12) – hands down the best named breakfast food I’ve eaten to date – which was free range eggs, mushrooms, spinach & brie omelette drizzled with EVOO, as well as a decent-sized freshly squeezed orange juice ($6). My counterpart had the Mushies on Toast ($11) & an OJ as well.

It was a hard decision given the many healthy sounding choices, including a vegan brekky (although unfortunately it was more expensive than any of the dishes with meat, which was surprising as it didn’t contain any out of this world ingredients). There were also various smoothies to choose from and some delicious sounding porridge.

My meal was amazing, a perfect breakfast and kept me going through the afternoon of window shopping! My girl thoroughly enjoyed her mushies as well 🙂

Despite the few negatives, I’d definitely return to Crumpet, there are a few really cute cafes opening up in Vic Park, it seems to be turning into the hip new spot!

I’ve also planned to introduce more free-range eggs into my life, I feel I may not be getting enough protein and this could be a good way to go about it! I’ll keep you posted 🙂

Be well,

  1. Ahh, and now your facebook status makes sense 🙂

    Have also been reading a fair number of good reviews about this place but yet to check it out. I’ve noticed elsewhere that the vego/vegan options can be either as pricy or more so than the meaty options that contain seemingly more expensive ingredients. Not sure what gives with this.

    Yeah it’s really unfortunate as a vego sometimes! It makes sense if they’re using tempeh or ingredients that are not so easy to come by – but in general I thought meat was more expensive than vegetables!

    You should def check this place out if you can get a seat 🙂

    There’s also The Imp as well as Silver Spoon in Vic Park that I’d like to check out.

    Maybe they use organic fruit and veges? These can be very expensive?? Although seeing as they are a cafe they would probably buy them in bulk and that would lessen the price hmm!

    Or perhaps they are trying to turn everyone into carnivores????

    I have read reviews of this place on some food blogs and have wanted to try it too nom nom. Cafe breakfasts are one of the best things in the world i think.

    I don’t think they’re organic, I think it’s just one of those things! I could always e-mail them and ask… or if they happen to stop by here please do leave a comment :)!

    Cafe breakys are def one of the best things in the world. We should do it sometime soon xox

    Yes there was a fairly attractive crowd there, including one green sweater wearing man in particular.
