On our last morning in Melbourne, A and I decided to walk down the iconic Chapel Street. For breakfast beforehand, we decided to try Tall Timber, as we had passed the eatery the day before and were intrigued at this bustling cafe situated on the corner of Commercial Road and Perth Street.
We arrived at an opportune time, as we snagged a table easily before the weekend breakfast rush. Tall Timber have a small selection of tables in the front of their eatery, but there are also quite a few more in the outside area located out back.
For breakfast, A ordered scrambled eggs which came with sourdough toast ($9.50). A enjoyed her breakfast and thought the eggs were lovely and fluffy.
I ordered the Breaky Board ($15) which came with a poached egg on pumpkin loaf with beetroot relish and goats cheese, muesli with natural yoghurt and fresh berries as well as a small OJ. I loved the idea of this breaky board and would love to see this more within breakfast eateries.
The coffee used is Niccolo and is roasted onsite. Unfortunately, we were both disappointed with the coffee at Tall Timber as it took a long time to arrive (we were half way through our breakfasts when they turned up and we had ordered our coffee long before we ordered our food) and we also found the coffee a little weaker than what we usually prefer.
All in all, we enjoyed our breakfast at Tall Timber but will order black coffees if we return.
