I have been to The 7th Avenue Bar and Restaurant a few times for dinner and lunch and it has always been enjoyable, but I had never been there for breakfast before. When a friend invited me to go there for breakfast to celebrate her birthday, I readily agreed.
Located in Midland - Gateway to the Swan Valley, the 7th Avenue Bar and Restaurant is a great place to dine with family and friends. The food is great and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.
It is a bit of a trek for us and takes quite a drive to get there, so we don't go very often but it was well worth the trip. When we arrived there was plenty of parking, and once inside we were shown to the table quickly and our orders were taken promptly.
Turns out my friend had invited about thirty people to breakfast so our table was packed and noisy but we still managed to get our orders in good time and the service was excellent.
The menu has the usual breakfast items that we all know and love. They also have a Sides and Extras list so you can add 'extras', such as mushrooms, hash browns or beans to any meal on the menu for an extra dollar or two. This is a pretty good idea and proved to be very popular at our table.
I ordered the pancakes with maple syrup, lemon and sugar (Stack of 3 pancakes with a choice of strawberry jam, honey, maple syrup, ice cream, lemon and sugar) for $9.50 and when they arrived they looked delicious - seconds later they tasted delicious.
The people sitting near me ordered different things. One ordered the 7th Avenue Big Breakfast – sausage, bacon, eggs, grilled tomato, mushrooms and toast ($14.90) and one had the Eggs Benedict – poached eggs, Virginia ham, baby spinach on a toasted English muffin with hollandaise sauce ($12.00). Both of these dishes looked fantastic when they arrive and I was told that they were very tasty and absolutely scrumptious.
The food was accompanied by a variety of fresh fruit juices and hot beverages. My cappuccino was lovely, nice smooth coffee taste and not at all bitter.
So, all in all the birthday breakfast at The 7th Avenue Bar and Restaurant was a big hit with everyone. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the prices were reasonable - there is nothing on the breakfast menu over $15.00. We will definitely be going back again.
Breakfast at the 7th Avenue Bar and Restaurant is served on Saturdays and Public Holidays from 8.30am till 11am and on Sundays from 7.30am till 11am.
