Nelson Road Tuckshop back on our radar


Category: Cafe

Food: $5-$22
Coffee: Campos – $3.50-$4

We stopped into Nelson Road Tuckshop on International Coffee day and scored a free coffee thanks to Zomato. Located a short walk from Westfield Bondi. We have been here before, but it had disappeared from our radar. The cafe has a modern rustic feel, you can grab a seat inside or out or take away. We sussed out the menu and there were a number of items that tickled my fancy, so we decided to grab a table for breakfast.

The menu changes seasonally; On this occasion there were a range of interesting healthy breakfast and lunch options. Including  Sri Lankan eggs, green breakfast bowl, their version of a big breakdast. The breakfast menu also included bircher, granola with fresh fruit and yogurt as well as a gin and beetroot cured salmon.  The lunch menu lists a variety of sandwiches, burgers and salads. For smaller bites there are pastries baked in house like croissants, sausage rolls and range of cakes including cronuts, muffins and many more tasty delights.
The service was nice and friendly with the staff checking in on us through out the meal. We ordered our lattès which were nice and had lattè art, which my wife is obsessed with at the moment. They make a nice coffee using Campos. They also make cold press juices.

The price is on the higher side, but worth it for interesting and tasty breakfast. I was tempted by the truffle mushroom croissant with beshemel, but went with the Sri Lankan eggs. Scrambled curried eggs cooked with Ayurvedic spices, charred pumpkin, black bread, pickled kohlrabi with a chilli lime sambal. One of the better breakfasts I have had lately. A great balance of spice and great  flavour, also very nutricious. We also shared the green breaky bowl with soft boiled egg, kale, coconut curry, carrot, seed and nuts. Very healthy and tasty which you cannot always include in the same sentence.

Check this place out if you are after something with a little more spice than your usual breakfast. Delicious healthy food and good coffee.
