Weekend breakfast at Cafe Injoy is not for the faint hearted. Breakfasting barns seem to be increasingly popular in this town and Injoy have honed the art.
After navigating hordes of screaming kids and ducking past the constantly scurrying staff you will, if lucky, get into a long queue which will, eventually, allow you to place an order.
The breakfast menu is refreshingly sparse, but does have vegetarian options. In my group we all ordered the all-day breakfast as well as coffees and juices.
Big breakfast, juice and a coffee each came to a smidge under $40 for two of us. Taking our number-on-a-stick we set off the find a table.
Despite the cavernous scale of the operation it was full so we had to sit outside.
Which was where the strengths of the place came to the fore. Snappy service.
We were barely seated before our coffees arrived and the breakfast was not far behind.
For my money I got a huge plate dripping with eggs (fried in an egg ring but done to perfection), hash browns, bacon, buttered toast, and fried tomatoes.
Nothing stellar, but all put together competently, and delivered with lightning speed. The advantage of the large crowd and limited menu being they can just keep turning them out.
And then for the best part, with toast left over we crossed the road to the carp pond and fed the fish.
Money can’t buy the happiness of feeding the fish.
It’s at 1 O’Hanlon Pl, Nicholls. (inside the Gold Creek complex)
