Beyond the Blackboy
An oasis has opened on Main South Road. Set back from the flowing traffic, Dee Dee's Café is a great little watering hole of calm in this busy shopping precinct.
Beautiful Xanthorrhoea in pots at the wide door mark the entrance to this escape from civilisation.
All the nourishing staples are here: Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine, Pancakes and Waffles, plus some new ideas such as Mix and Match. Mix and Match excited my friend who doesn't often see a yummy big breakfast option without eggs.
There was a brief battle between Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine for me. The Eggs Florentine won. They were very tasty.
The other girls chose Muesli with Fruit and Yoghurt and Eggs on Smashed Avocado with Hollandaise Sauce. We all enjoyed our choices. The coffee was good. The service friendly and prompt. The location was convenient for all of us. Parking was easy. In fact, Dee Dee's ticks all the boxes to become 'the local', so we plan to return for the next birthday brekkie celebration.
Dee Dee's has more than a few enticing attributes. I have already mentioned the big three - food, coffee, service - but they are also open everyday for breakfast, snacks and lunch. It doesn't matter what time you arrive as you can still order your favourite food. They serve 'All Day Breakfast' and 'All Day Lunch'. The food is very reasonably priced and sourced locally. As well as a great egg selection for breakfast, and burgers, salads and sides for lunch, Dee Dee's offer Premium Milkshakes with a choice of Tim Tam, Oreo, Cherry Ripe, Kit Kat, Bounty, Nutella or Brownie. These all sound like a good reason to visit between meals.
Dee Dee's support local businesses by holding an early morning Business Networking Group that meet for breakfast once a month. Stop by Dee Dee's any day and you are sure to find something delicious to enjoy.
