If you’re a bit of a breakfast connoisseur, no doubt you’ve been to your fair share of breakfast spots around Sydney.
You’ve probably eaten out so much that you’re bored of the eggs benny and over omelettes – and it’s okay.
Baked breakfasts are the bomb! They have that rustic, mediterranean feel and are seriously on the up and up.
They’re great for anyone who wants something hot, but isn’t into the standard bacon and egg combo.
They’re normally rich in tomato and cheese, with eggs cooked JUST right. But these days, baked breakfasts are coming in all different shapes and sizes.
Here are six of the best spots to try…
Kazbah, Balmain, Potts Point
The Breakfast Tagine is probably the most popular item on the menu at Kazbah. They have two variants there, one veggie one with tomato, onions, pumpkin and eggs, and a lamb version that comes with you guessed it – beautiful lamb throughout.
Popolo, Rushcutters Bay
This is a very impressive venue, with an affordable menu and a chic, Italian fine dining vibe. You basically walk in thinking your breakfast will cost you an arm and a leg, but it doesn’t! One of their most popular baked breakfasts comes with tomato, truffle pecorino, pane carasau and beautiful poached eggs! YUM!
Cake Shenkin, Erskineville
Beautiful baked breakfasts either vegetarian, or with glorious chorizo. You’ll also get some delicious pita bread to mop it all up!
Stuzzichini, Boronia Park/Hunters Hill
If you walked by Stuzzichini, you may miss it – which would be horrendous, because you’d miss seeing Mr. Stuzzichini and his wife, who are still found in the shop daily. His wife, Nonna, is in the kitchen busily preparing Nonna’s Eggs, which are some of the most delicious, gooey, garlic baked eggs with Italian tomato sauce you’ve ever tasted. A MUST visit!
Shuk, North Bondi
The shakshuka comes with glorious tomato and capsicum or there’s a stunning fennel, zucchini, feta and kale version that is supremely popular.
Grandma’s Little Bakery, Alexandria
This place brings to life much loved recipes from Grannies and Grandpas from all over the world. Their shakshukas are incredibly popular, from the classic capsicum, tomato and onion, to the feta and spinach – and even the minced beef with moroccan sauce!
