Waking up with breakfast at the Greenhouse…

We had a team breakfast at the Greenhouse yesterday morning. I had been here a couple of times prior, most notably towards end of last year when I spilt my latte all over my food and myself first thing in the morning before work. As you would have imagined, I was spewing as I had barely eaten my eggs on toast and I was covered in my latte. The Greenhouse team was wonderful, they helped cleaned me up without a fuss and brought me out another meal and another latte on the house! I didn’t at all expect a complimentary meal/coffee and would have gladly paid, but Greenhouse’s kind gesture just made the day much better.

Looking in my wardrobe yesterday, the only piece of ironed work clothing I had left for the week was a cream skirt – I really did think twice about wearing it especially because of my last ‘latte’ experience at Greenhouse. My team all ordered the wild mushroom, slow cooked eggs on toast ($16.50) – the egg is very runny so if you don’t like it too runny, I’d recommend mentioning it to the Greenhouse team, they do ask though but just in case. I had these eggs last time (without the mushrooms) so I ordered the salad of summer fruits, orange blossom yoghurt, freshly rolled oats ($14) and my usual latte.

I normally don’t order fruit / oats for breakfast (too light for me) and go the eggs but I had been awake for a couple of hours & the natural wake-up hunger was gone. I really enjoyed the fruit and it surprised me really because I was expecting your usual watermelon, orange, rock melon, apple mix but it was a delicious selection of tropical fruits – peach, mango, grape fruit, plum and strawberries. The grape fruit blew me away as I’ve never had a sweet one here in Australia, they’ve always been bitter – the only time I’ve had sweet grapefruit was in Vietnam & Thailand. The latte was nice and definitely did the trick with waking me up / giving me that Friday productive work energy I needed.

I’ve only ever been to Greenhouse for breakfast but I hear the lunch is good too. It’s pretty chilled-out and has a nice ambience about it. There’s no doubt I’d be back again for my next breakfast in the Perth CBD or for a drink or two after work one day.

foodie cravings

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.
