This joint had a nice feel to it, however the seats were a bit squishy, which you come to expect in Melbourne cafes anyway. We saw it for our search for inaugural eggs benny, but dismissed it because it didn't look cosy (metal seats) and it was a cold day. But it turned out the temp inside was fine.
They also tried to disguise the eggs benny as 'Hollandaise eggs'. Nice try Mess Hall, we will not be fooled so eaily!
6/10. Good but not great. Probably trying a bit too hard to be fancy, when it's really not necessary.
5/10. The bread was weird and why couldn't they decide to have ham or just spinach? And that sh** they sprinkled on the top was not needed. And the oil, bleh!
So that gives us an average of 5.5!! How does that look on the benedict rater?
|Good thing we try a different cafe every week, they probably won't let us back in!|
