I first heard about Patissez when I visited Canberra a number of years ago when their Freakshakes were all the rage (and they were very good). Recently I decided to check it out again, although this time I wasn't going for their Freakshakes but instead I was going for their brunches.
We arrived mid-morning on the weekend for brunch, and we were able to get a table straight away, granted it was outside but the outdoor heaters kept us cosy. I knew I was going to enjoy brunch at Patissez very much when I saw they offered tea from one of my favourite tea suppliers, Tea Garden and Co. They have a great range of teas available including 'Turkish to my Delight', which is amazing, but ultimately I decided to go with 'Vermont Chai'.
With drinks sorted, I had to decide on what to order for brunch, there were so many delicious options on the menu, including pulled pork Benedict, apple pie hotcakes, and breakfast platters. However, it was the chilli fungi with scrambled eggs that really caught my attention and got me to order the dish. The scrambled eggs were fluffy and cooked perfectly while the Danish feta and prosciutto gave the dish a dash of saltiness. The dish was topped off perfectly by the soft fresh bread that eggs were served on.
Chilli Fungi and French toast
My partner ordered the chocolate French toast which also tasted amazing; I'm not usually one for sweet breakfasts but I think if I had of ordered it, I would have been very happy. The French toast itself was cooked perfectly and was very fluffy. The chocolate was a great addition to the French toast and they put just the right amount so it wasn't too sweet. My partner definitely made a good choice with his brunch selection, and I made a good choice deciding to go back to Patissez!
