Breakfast at Typika

Beef, for breaky? Really? I had to give this a go.

I arrived with the two kids and let me just say, they are beautiful, I love my kids….. but they refuse to sit still! Up, down, up down, I was exhausted and I hadn’t even had a sip of my long mac. The baby chino’s and countless marshmallows didn’t really help the situation but it’s Sunday breaky and I was needing anything for bribery, not that it was working.

Rayne rocked up not long after so being the good husband that I am I was able to take the kids for a wander and let her relax and have a quick read of the paper……

With long mac in hand and kids in toe I headed off to take a peek of this $800k roasting machine that Rob wrote about. I had no idea what to expect, I mean what the hell does an $800k roasting machine look like anyway? Is it gold plated? Let me just say it was impressive and it definitely looked like a major investment of the Chimbalino group. They will be cranking out some majorly roasted coffee from that monster!

I loved the wall with live micro herbs that lined the inside of the building, although the leaves did prove too much of a temptation for Autumn. “Please don’t pick the leaves honey” is a clear indication to pick so we didn’t last there very long.

I couldn’t go past ordering the Spiced Beef Bendict and let me tell you, it worked! The eggs were perfectly poached and the hollandaise sauce had just the right amount of harissa (harissa is a spice made up of a variety of hot peppers, spices and other herbs).

Rayne ordered the Eggs Benedict and again, the eggs cooked to perfection and I loved the chunky hand carved smoked ham that sat on the toast. A perfect marriage.

The coffee is mild and smooth and the décor is simple and earthy. When I asked where they purchased their water glass’s from I was told the owner brought back most of the decor from America and it was all recycled.

Typika is open Monday till Friday, breakfast till 11 and lunch till 3

Saturday and Sunday breakfast all day.

  1. The breakfast pictures look absolutely perfect. Those are two popular meals you can find anywhere but they look extra appetizing at Typika. Usually you’ll see them with some type of melted cheddar cheese that adds some great taste. I’m looking forward to trying this place.
