Colours aplenty in Bright
It was our first morning in Bright, and breakfast beckoned. A quick walk around the couple of main streets and we stumbled upon some "coffee umbrellas" next to an partially obscure shop with little markings to indicate it was a café. A quick check inside, and then of the menu confirmed that this was to be our breakfast destination.

Menu - Steve Hudson

The menu had a number of standard dishes as well as some dishes that are starting to become more common fare in today's decadent society. We liked the idea that many of the dishes used local produce as a base or supplement to the dish, thus providing opportunities to taste the regional fare. Notwithstanding that we chose the sweet sounding avocado and corn fritter dishes.

Smashed Avocado - Steve Hudson

The first thought that entered my mind when our breakfast arrived was the visually strong colours. The bright green, red and yellow on both dishes was striking and eating these in one of the most colourful towns in Victoria made that all the better. In terms of taste, the smashed avocado with mint and marinated feta on toast with slow roasted tomato and dukkah absolutely "smashed" it. The combination of textures combined perfectly to produce an extremely pleasant dish.

Sweet Corn Fritters - Steve Hudson

In absolute tasting contrast the sweet corn fritters with tomato, black bean, coriander and avocado salsa and sour cream had a different but equally enjoyable flavour to it. The two fritters were unusual in that they were predominantly corn (with little flour) and had been topped with a delectable array of salad and salsa that produced a delectable combination.

Our coffees were nearly finished by this point, and a second round was on its way. By definition a second coffee indicates good value, great taste and an enjoyable venue, all of which was in abundance on this particular morning.

Hello Steve, loved the descriptions of the food. Glancing through the menu I would have had trouble between the pancakes and the chorizo beans - the meals you picked look pretty good also. Regards, Tony
