Lazy May’s is the newest cafe on the Tuggeranong scene. In fact, it is the only bar in the Tuggeranong area (No, PJ’s does not count as a bar, it’s a pub!).

I’ve been eagerly following the Lazy May’s Facebook page since it opened. Without having even been there I knew that they were open for breakfast and lunch, and are also soon opening for dinner. Last weekend I actually had enough time to travel the distance. I could not wait!

Lazy May’s is located under an apartment complex. When you walk in, the big white wall covered in big black printed coffee quotes is definitely the first thing that grabs your attention. Early in the morning you can pretty much sit anywhere and from our experience, you will be served and have a delicious cup of coffee in front of you in no time.

There’s a few items on the menu that caught my eye but I’m a sucker for slow cooked eggs and avocado, so I couldn’t go passed the smashed eggs on toast: 75 degrees sous vide eggs, served with avocado smash and wilted rocket salad on crispy rye bread ($13.90), with a side of well done bacon. Mike built his own breakfast or toast, poached eggs, crispy bacon, garlic mushrooms and baby Roma vine tomatoes (approx. $15.50).


Breakfast was perfectly timed. We had just enough time to enjoy our coffees before our food was served. For some reason I can’t eat food whilst drinking coffee, it’s just weird to me.

Both breakfasts were well presented and all elements of the dish were well seasoned and tasty. We were also very pleased that the eggs were cooked perfectly. overall it was good food; however, I feel I need to preface this and say that it wasn’t amazing. It was average.

This has happened to me a couple of times recently, where I have purposely made an effort to eat somewhere because of how the cafe has marketed itself on Facebook and I leave feeling unsatisfied. Maybe I am setting my expectations too high, but I just feel like these beautiful images of absolutely amazing looking food gets posted, which gets me excited and then when I actually eat at these cafe’s they end up being kind of average and nothing like how Facebook makes them appear. It’s a little disappointing.

But look, if you follow my reviews, you probably already know that I am a bit of a food snob, and I certainly know that my idea of a fabulous meal is not the same as everyone else. As I said, Lazy May’s was far from horrible, the food was good but it wasn’t amazing. So, if you’re looking for bacon and eggs for breakfast and you’re local to Tuggeranong, I would recommend it as a nice place to grab a bite to eat.

Lazy May’s is located at 1 Cowlishaw Street, Greenway and is open Monday to Saturday, 7am to 4pm.

Ojo is the other bar that’s in Tuggeranong – it’s over near Target/Lincraft and has been there for years.
