Chadstone's best brunch spot
Chadstone Shopping Centre may be a behemoth, but for far too long, it lacked a self-contained brunch spot. There may be two food courts, but who wants to scramble for a table littered with crumbs? Mr Pilgrim, which is located in a prime location on the outskirts of the shopping complex, but with its relaxed ambiance, does not feel like a part of the busy shopping centre.

The new addition to the Australia's largest shopping centre boasts an extensive breakfast menu, as well as an assortment of ready-made snacks and salads in the display.

I ordered eggs benedict with a hot chocolate, totalling $18.30. Mr Pilgrim has some degree of table service: while you have to find your own table, they bring your food out to you.

The hot chocolate came out first. It had just the right ratio of froth to creamy hot chocolate.

The eggs were poached to perfection, and served with lightly browned leg ham and a thin bed of spinach. It came with English muffins rather than toast, which set it apart from the eggs benedict served by most cafes. Best of all, it was doused in a hearty serve of hollandaise sauce.

My friend also ordered the eggs benedict, but with mushrooms instead of ham, washed down with orange juice which was served in a glass jar.

If the food wasn't enough to make Mr Pilgrim a new favourite breakfast spot, the quaint décor adds a new dimension. They've made use of some interesting building materials- one of the walls is made out of old wooden doors. Some of the tables have wicker chairs, giving the place a homely feeling.

Your Comment
When I first read this, I thought you said you ordered eggs benedict with chocolate! Thinking about it, having melted chocolate over eggs doesn't sound that bad.
