Dining date: 16 April 2013
Location: Cafe Excello
99 Spring St
Melbourne VIC 3001
Base: English muffins, pleasingly toasted with a lovely crunch.
Eggs: Overcooked. So quite terrible. They were pretty scrawnly little eggs too.
Sauce: Pretty sure it was that pre-made stuff, which Lil sis adores and I think is passable.
Ham: Generous quantity, tasty.
Coffee: A little on the bitter side, but not undrinkable.
Service: Very friendly, though I wasn't sure if I had to pay at the register or if they brought the bill to you, it wasn't clear. I get diner's anxiety when I don't know how shit is supposed to go down.
Overall comment: Average. Not fabulous, not terrible. Additional inclusion of spinach on the side to make you feel like you're being healthy. A passable affair, I'm just happy to be eggs benny-ing again!
Lil sis: 7/10
After a long break, this week's Eggs Benny were delicious! Sauce was the generic stuff which tastes great and they were on the traditional English muffins which is always a winner. My eggs were a little overcooked but not bad at all. Spinach on the side which is not needed at all. Coffee was average but for the price we got our moneys worth.
And how does that look on the benedict-o-meter? Rounded up to a generous 7 Benedicts out of 10!
Make sure you check out my map and the Eggs Benny Leaderboard to see the other eggs benny locations lil sis and I have checked out.
