Having enjoyed their lunch offerings during our last visit, we decided to try the breakfast dishes at Argo on The Parade. The cafe proved to be just as popular during the breakfast hour so arriving early is advised to avoid having to wait too long to get a table.
Available from Friday each week until they are sold out, their Pulled Pork Benedict puts an interesting spin on Eggs Benedict by replacing the ham with slow-cooked pulled pork. The pulled pork was very juicy and had a good amount of smoked flavour to make eating them an enjoyable experience. We also liked that the poached eggs had the runny yolks we expected. The apple and fennel coleslaw partnered wonderfully with the pork, and the pumpkin and beetroot waffle was a great change from the usual toast.

The cinnamon French toast featured in The Godmother was cooked just right, and the blackcurrant gel and vanilla crème patisserie was not too sweet. A notable part of the dish was the charcoal lychee meringue, which was an interesting way to add a crunchy element to the dish. Though the dish was tasty enough on its own, maple syrup was provided for adding another layer of sweetness.

Argo's Long Black Coffee had a rich, bitter taste and notably came with a small glass of sparkling water for cleansing the palate.

Smaller dishes are available for those looking for a light breakfast and there are also some healthy options. If you are looking for a place offering breakfast dishes that are different from the norm or one with ideas for the health-conscious, consider giving Argo on The Parade a visit.
