My friends antipasto, and my eggs benedict


In most cases, it is interesting how those Melburnians who live on the east side of Melbourne keep to their side of their world, and vice verse with the west side. Yesterday I went for a drive with one of my girlfriends (who lives on the west side, me technically on the east side) and I suddenly became a "westy" for a day. Williamstown beach is beautiful with that fresh seaweed smell with a close view of the city skyline, and the shops along Nelson Place have that kind of country feel, until we came across a modern establishment called Tick Tok.

The coloured seats (which easily remind you of crocs) and white tables was somehow interesting and fresh. The courtyard at the back of the cafe was just brilliant. There is a great area with a fireplace towards the back as well, along with an abundance of Marie Claire magazines to read and enjoy.

It was a little frustrating with the longer than expected wait for our lunch to arrive, however once my eggs benedict and my girlfriend's antipasto plate arrived, she insisted that I try a few different things from her plate. I had no choice. The vine leaves were a standout, although the meat was a little bland. My eggs benedict was tasty, especially the Hollandaise sauce, and the eggs were well cooked.

It turns out that good things happen to those who wait.

My wife and I had lunch at Tick Tok today, we waited almost 2 hours for basic food which did not contain the ingredients listed on the menu. If you are thinking of eating at Tic Tok I would suggest you give this place a miss, it was a waste of a day. I think they got their name from the ticking time bomb their kitchen is.

My girlfriend and I frequent Tick Tok at least twice a month for a regular "shake and cake" in my opinion Tick Tok provides one of the best vanilla milkshakes in Melbourne. A great place.
