Breakfast with truffles in Footscray, oh my!

Guerilla Espresso, Shop 228, 81 Hopkins st, Footscray

What better way to enjoy the morning sunshine than brekkie with the hubby, the bubby and one of these bad boys – the infamous truffle toastie found at Guerilla Espresso. After reading about this exquisite sounding concoction  on my Twitter feed the night before, I knew exactly want I wanted for brunch the next day! Found amongst some fresh green grocers in the Footscray market, this cafe is occupies a small space but boasts smooth coffee, a delicious menu and lovely service. The layers of fresh crusty bread, shaved truffle, mozarella, gruyere, watercress and shaved pecorino, with a touch of lemon and olive oil was a beautiful bite of luxury taking me away from the sleepless nights I’ve had of late (the little one has been sick but more of that on another post). This well put together sandwich is already calling me back as I post this blog entry. Make sure you ask for the truffle toastie when you visit Guerilla as it is not up on the menu. Enjoy!

A new cafe in the West, Rozzi’s Italian Canteen, a nice big mug of coffee for brekkie, Eggs benedict

Rozzi’s Italian Canteen, Highpoint Shopping Centre, Rosamond Rd, Maribyrnong

Cuisine: Cafe-style with cold salads, focaccias, and cakes in the window and made to order meals on the menu.

Location: Accessible location at the entrance of the new food hall and close to the elevators and escalators.

Service: We came for brunch on a Sunday and it was starting to get busy however we received our coffee and our meals in good time by friendly staff and patient staff.

Food: We both ordered the eggs Benedict, which is rare as we always try to order different dishes so that we can taste more of the menu! It was such a good blend of buttery, smooth flavours and the eggs were poached beautifully. Beautiful presentation.

Drink: I didn’t order any drinks but the better half ordered a cap and it came out in a huge FRIENDS-like mug with a nice aroma 🙂

Kid-Friendly?: Yes! Easy access from the carpark and we were able to arrange our chairs around our table to accommodate our pram!

We wanted to find a comfortable place to enjoy a nice brunch in the sun and decided to check out the new cafe at Highpoint. Rozzi’s is located at the entrance of the food hall section with lots of natural light shining through the windows and both indoor and outdoor seating. After having their deliciously, creamy eggs Benedict and being able to accommodate our pram, we will definitely be coming back to try more! Their salads look delish!!!

My weekend in pictures

FridayWestbournians 2012 funnyfriends

Everybody loves Fridays and last Friday was extra special as my high school friends and I got our kids all together for the first time! It was so beautiful to see that even after all these years and no matter how different and busy our lives are, our friendship remains strong <3

Saturdayhealthy brekkieElephant bum

After such a fun Friday with all the kids, it was heart-wrenching to wake up to the news of what happened in Newtown… Saturday was a write-off. I held bubba all day.  Hubby was away for the whole weekend on a Bucks weekend. Daniel, my sister and I caught up on sleep! Being so close to Christmas it felt good to actually just slow down and reflect  instead of rushing around. I took a picture of my brekkie because hubby and I have been so addicted to it lately! – a bowlful of Special K, blueberries, banana topped with chia seeds. It is soooo tasty and a little inspired by Anna!

On Sunday Daniel wore his onesie shirt from Next that I posted in an earlier post…so cute!! He attended his first party – Aiyah’s christening 🙂 Then we picked up daddy from the east side and stopped by Chadstone whilst we were there to have a coffee and people-watch. It was nice to just sit and chill whilst everyone else rushed around! Daniel was enjoying it because lately he is much more aware of his surroundings and wants to know everything that’s going on around him! I found a really nice pair a pants from Portmans but because Daniel wanted to go home I didn’t get to buy them 🙁 …so I bought them the next day from Highpoint! 😛

How did you spend your 2nd last weekend before Christmas?
