Last weeekend, we visited The Goodsline for our Father’s Day brunch. This expansive cafe in Pyrmont, brought to us by @thegrounds co-founder is a site that was once on the light rail metropolitan “goods line”. Today, it is a modern cafe and restaurant serving brunch fare that is generous on size and delicious on taste.
We had the “mushroom melange”, which is a vegetarian dish that has sautéed seasonal mushrooms, fermented mushroom puree, crumbled feta, gruyere, poached egg, chickpea tofu. The tofu was a really tasty addition to the dish. For $20, it would be nice to have some sort of substantial carb; on a muffin or a slice of toast.
We also had the “green brekkie bowl”, another vegetarian dish that can also be done vegan without the eggs. The bowl is grilled broccolini, kale, farro, almonds, pepitas, normally a 6-minute egg (I asked for well done) and seasoned with their green goddess dressing. It sits on a tofu and sesame puree.
Smoked salmon rosti, chorizo scrambled eggs and French toast are also on the menu, and everything that came out to the tables around us looked impressive. The venue also has lunch options from midday.
The front counter also showcases takeaway goods, pastries and decadent treats.
We ordered a couple of coffees, which they use the Grounds beans, which makes sense, given the co-founder.
They have a good kids menu with a couple of items are really reasonable prices for the size. We order the scrambled eggs for Lennox for $6, and it’s practically the size of an adult one.
Service was excellent and considering we were there on a busy Father’s Day, they provided efficiency in delivery or meals. In particular, the maître d was outstanding – seating customers, taking orders, delivering meals and performing all service roles.
We had a lovely experience and looking forward to trying their lunch menu in the future.
