Galleon Cafe in St Kilda is my all time favourite place to eat in Melbourne. I've been fortunate enough to travel all over Australia, both for pleasure and work. Because of all this travel, I have eaten a lot of breakfasts from all different places. I therefore believe I am in the perfect position to make the following statement. Hands down, Galleon Cafe serves the best eggs benedict in Australia. Seriously. Perfectly cooked eggs every time, creamy hollandaise sauce, all served on a lightly toasted bagel. Pure bliss. Do yourself a favour and get a sweet potato hash brown on the side as well. You wont be disappointed. Care to offer a rebuttal? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter.. where do you think the best eggs benedict are served?
Studying the menu closely. Just get the eggs benedict, damn it. Silly girl.
Honey served with your tea. Forget the sugar, get organic. Drink some bonsoy. Do it now.
Oh, behold the gloriousness. Just sit and look at it for a little while. Ponder life over the perfect eggs. (Eggs Benedict with homemade hollandaise sauce and leg ham, one egg $11 or two eggs $13. Sweet potato hash brown $3.50)
Pancakes are also a tasty option. But don't skip the eggs. Have the pancakes for dessert after your eggs. (Pancakes with lemon butter and strawberries, $12.50)
Poached eggs, vegetarian style. Also good. (Sweet potato, basil and feta hash served with wilted spinach and one poached egg, $13. Side of Hollandaise sauce, $1.50)
Ok. You've waited long enough. Bust open your eggs and behold the gooey goodness. Savour. Enjoy. Return many, many times over.
