Breakfast at the Flathead Cafe

By johnboy 11 April 2007 25

The Flathead Cafe in O’Connor has rapidly become an Inner North institution for fish and chips. Fortunately Nick The Pig had crashed on my couch the other night and with the morning he was bellyaching about how, without food, he would immediately expire. So we went looking for breakfast with some hope that All Bar Nun might be open.

In that we were disappointed, but I noticed that Flathead’s was doing business and figured they couldn’t just be doing fish and chips for breakfast. Instead we got this magnificent bastard for a mere $10:

The tomato was actually cooked! And the eggs were right (aside from a broken one which happens to the best of us. It had decent bacon, and a sausage lurked in there to surprise the unwary. The hash browns were both enourmous and delicious and it came with a plate of toast with which to conduct mopping up operations. Best of all it had plain old baked beans rounding it out.

If you’re after lightly grilled marinated mushrooms with your big breakfast then this isn’t for you. But if you want a real fry up breakfast for a very reasonable $10 then it’s highly recommended.

What’s Your opinion?

Pajenkas in the ANU Union offer a similar big breakfast on weekdays for about $8. Eggs, bacon, tomato, hash browns and sausage.

Err more like $12. Although it is worth it, despite the fact that portion sizes have declined this year for some reason. I still eat there though, good food and excellent service from the ladies on the counter.

Being vego, I’d be giving the bacon and sausages to my other half anyway. But a nice greasy egg on toast is nice every few weeks.

OK, scratch that last question. Just looked it up, so they don’t open until 10AM on Sundays. It goes against the early-riser in me, but I’ll accept it.

Is Flathead’s open on Sundays? Walked by this morning about 9:30AM and no one home. The Nun was open of course… but I was looking forward to grease and beans!

And even if you did drive that far, emd, you probably wouldn’t make it home again with all the greasy gunge inside you….

I’ll just stick with my dates, lamb kebab and couscous thanks.
