Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. Especially at the beach.
Overlooking Middle Harbour, the Boathouse is surrounded by water and beautiful views.
Inside there’s a rustic beachy feel with lorry loads of fresh flowers and plants.
The menu is about as fresh and natural as the flowers.
I was so tempted by these. Scones for breakfast – that’s a thing!
However, I couldn’t go past the Mushrooms and Eggs. Everything was cooked to perfection, including the crispy kale. A food stylist might call this ugly food, but I call it totally delicious!
Most of our posse went for the poached eggs with bacon. I think David secretly wanted one of the yummy potato or sausage cakes on the side but his tummy just ran out of room.
Some of us couldn’t go past the croissants. I wonder why…
The babycinos are as colourful as the flowers.
Fresh food, great coffee, good friends and spectacular views… the ingredients for a perfect morning I’d say.
Breakfast at the Boathouse is served until 11.30. They don’t take bookings so taking a table is pot luck. If you’re pushed for time, you can always eat and run at the take away counter!
