Got the lockdown blues? Missing your favourite café for a lazy weekend breakfast?
Never fear, you can order your breakfast to be delivered to your door and cheer up family and friends as we enter another round of COVID-enforced lockdowns around the country.
Here are four of our recommendations to have breaky in bed on your doorstep:
Contemporary breaky fare with flair at Settle Gretel Café.
Carrum foodies need look no further than Settle Gretel Café on McLeod Road for contemporary breaky fare with flair. From loaded banana bread with buttercream, strawberry coconut, mascarpone, fresh fruit and crushed meringue to eggs Benny, ham hock and potato croquettes, Hollandaise, snow pea tendrils, peas and charred onion; there’s something for all tastes.
Settle Gretel now offers café brunch delivered at home from its kitchen, where Chef Shannon’s flamboyant personality shines through in every dish served; when possible settle into a cool pale pink and aqua vibe indoors, where fresh blooms and softly glowing globes blend seamlessly with blond wood table settings for a memorable meal.
Indulgent breaky choices at Montano’s Patisserie and Café.
Nothing kickstarts the day better than Belgium waffles with strawberries, maple syrup and vanilla ice cream – you can order yours from Montano’s Patisserie and Café on Mountain Highway in Bayswater and have them arrive on your doorstep ready to be devoured.
Let Montano’s treat you to breakfast in bed in style with offerings like smashed avocado, feta, mint, pickled beetroot and multi-grain toast, or the perfect eggs Benny; while you are ordering grab some treats for later in the day like indulgent chocolate and raspberry brownies along with lemon meringue tart, all made in house.
Breaky in bed…the epitome of luxury from Le Petit Brekkie.
Breakfast in bed is the epitome of luxury and at Le Petit Brekkie, they believe everyone should be able to enjoy this pleasure and sample the best of the Byron Shire food scene. This food truck delivers gourmet hampers and breakfast boxes all around the Byron Bay area to accommodation venues and your door, with all breads, pastries and condiments sourced locally.
There are three beautifully curated French-inspired boxes to choose from – think croissants, pain au chocolat, French jam, cultured butter, orange juice, herbal tea and drip coffee. If you order on the weekend of July 23-25 you will also be helping support the homeless breakfast and School Breakfast 4 Health programs, as Le Petit Brekkie is donating all profits during that time to these charities.
Sweet Delights Picnics can take care of all your cravings.
Those of us who can do so may opt for a breakfast picnic in the park on a lazy weekend – Sweet Delights Picnics on Glebe Road at The Junction can take care of all your cravings with choices like a breaky wrap of scrambled egg, cheese, baby spinach, chorizo and sautéed mushrooms.
Why stop at breakfast? Order at grilled chicken burger, with lettuce, tomato, carrot, beetroot, cheese and sweet chilli sauce for lunch; or perhaps salt and pepper squid, with crunchy salad and feta hits the mark.
