A Hardware Lane alternative for a solidly built breakfast
Hardware Lane is our go-to place when we're feeling brunch-ish. We always start at the northern end, in the vain hope that the Hardware Societe may not have a huge queue. No such luck this morning, so we continue eating our way down the laneway. Today, we settled on Triim.

Triim caught our eyes because we hadn't tried it, and because the owner was friendly and welcoming. We sat outside to watch the passing foodies, and ordered a big breakfast each. If a place does a good big breakfast, then they're likely worth coming back to. The Triim big brekky will set you back $17.50, unless you're a glutard (gluten intolerant) who likes toast, which adds another $3. I'm personally against paying extra money for lousy toast, so I ordered my brekky without the bread. I know, shocking to traditionalists, but I was glad I did because I struggled to get through the huge plate of food even without the extra padding.

The Trim Big Breakfast boasts eggs, sausages, hash brown, mushrooms, half tomato, and bacon.

The mushrooms were a highlight for me, as I love the little suckers and too often they're neglected from a big brekky menu. The little chicken sausages were nice, but nothing special. The bacon was double smoked and cooked beautifully definitely a highlight. And, while being a little greasy, the hash brown was crispy and tasty.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable big breakfast at a reasonable price.

Naturally, I had a coffee with my breakfast what kind of breakfast would it be without a hot latte? Triim's coffee is very enjoyable good flavour, not bitter, yet nice and strong. I would definitely drink it again.

My non-coffee drinker of a husband opted for the chocolate milkshake, which for a glass of chocolate syrup and milk was a letdown for $6.50. Stick with the coffee folks.
