21 Dec Pony and Cole
The west is doing brunch best! Most of us have been avoiding the mayhem of South Road for the past 9 months but Pony and Cole is reason to brave the gridlock and venture in the Western suburbs once again!
Sister duo Simone and Nicole are serving up fresh and flavoursome food that is locally and ethically sourced.
Notably, their eggs are from The Splendid Egg, a free range farm where there are less than 4 birds per hectare.
The cafe is uniquely spacious enabling a peaceful and enjoyable brunch experience while the walls are painted a sky blue evoking feelings of calm and serenity.
Weak mocha. The milk was nicely steamed with a good balance in coffee and chocolate.
Eggy Pot. Eggs sous vide, mashed potato with herbs, served with toasted soldiers rolled in tomato dust, bacon and apple jam. The eggs mixed with the mash were soft and creamy while the jam was rich and tangy. This was such a unique and interesting way to serve eggs and left a lasting impression on me.
Sweet potato Rosti. Smashed avocado, pico de galo, roasted cauliflower and chickpea dukkah with an egg on top. The Rosti was crisp and golden on the outside with a moist and creamy centre. The salad lightened the dish up and gave it a real freshness.
Pony and Cole is the quintessential brunch spot that the inner west suburbs has been waiting for. Their food is fresh and seasonal with punches of flavour.
