As our complicated, complex lives go on and on, people have a tendency to forget the vital role that little things have in the machinery of our existence. How a moment of calm in an endless sea of stress and work provides for the sustenance our minds need to go own: a kind gesture of a stranger, a well made coffee, a random sign that our mind interprets as life/God/fate telling us to go on.

Certainly, there wasn’t much to complain that day as I was strolling throughout North Melbourne, so to beg the great beyond to send me a David to the Goliath that is the arduousness of life would have been rather unreasonable. The day was warm and sunny, and, if I would have bothered to take out the headphones, I’m sure I could even hear a pleasant chirp from the birds and the sweet humming of bees.

The place was very pleasant inside, with lots of space and charming staff, a little garden in the back with a tree and a table. I could also finally test my new 50mm lens for my Nikon! Experimentation time! The late was spot on, and as you should know, I’m not that big on coffee. So I just add a LOT of sugar in it. Still young so can abuse that.

I went with the Shady Deal (shakshuka – which is basically braised spiced tomatoes, eggplant, chickpeas and pepper, with poached eggs; 16$); now, the shakshuka wasn’t all that great – fine at first, but just like the one at Cumulus, becomes rather distasteful after you have had too much. Rather bitter and a bit strange. The eggs were poached well, and… AND… the bread was amazing. I must hand it to them. Soft and warm, it was as if I was munching on clouds dipped in happiness.

Price wise it’s about 24-18$ most courses for brunch, which is fine (not cheap though). They do take cards (again, lifesaver!).

Other allegories of life must wait for another day – I just spent the entirety of mine working with children. Drained is a very kind word.

Grade: Sainthood (the bread saves the place)

      • I luv to eat egg so much.. In Nongkai, North East of Thailand, food have fusion food between Thai and American name, Kai Kata ( Egg Pan ), they put egg on the pan with pork and slide sausage. We put ingredient as ketchup, source and pepper on it. Bad, it’s hard to find eating in Bangkok.
