Beautiful Brunches - Little Byrd (Ascot Vale) @ Monday, April 08, 2019
Thursday 28th March
Charlie & Co. dined as guests.
Just a short walk from the station on main street lies Little Byrd, a bustling rustic cafe with a bit of Middle Eastern inspiration. Serving up all the brunchy classics and things I want to order too! Like the fruit salad with ice cream.
It was a lovely day to sit outside, otherwise we would have loved that corner table with the Moroccan throw pillows, rustic and inner suburbs meets some more exotic flavours.
Not giving into my "need" to order the ice cream and fruit salad we had a vanilla milkshake instead, I like it but it was a tad artificial tasting, might be the brand of ice cream. Oddly the matcha lattes are missing from the coffee menu. Nina meanwhile had a refreshing carrot, ginger and lemon freshly pressed juice. Is celery hollow? Cause that would have made a cool straw. She said it was perfect to match the falafel bowl, fresh and palate cleansing.
Falafal Bowl - Falafel, labneh, mix beans, mix pickles,
cherry tomatoes, quinoa, avocado, beetroot and hummus
Nina had the falafel bowl, so vibrant and fresh. The sweet pickles offset by creamy labneh and thinly sliced dukkah sprinkled avocado were the perfect accompaniment to the crispy falafel. A nice addition was the mixed beans and quinoa, adding protein and depth to the bowl. Definitely a large, filling serving and one we'd get again. And so beautifully presented, we felt healthier just eating it.
Shakshuka - Spiced tomato sauce with middle eastern spices
with Turkish sausage and baked eggs topped with crumbed feta.
Not only were these selections healthy, but also full of flavour and filling,
so much so we had to skip dessert, and that doesn't happen often!
Brunch at Little Byrd was the perfect start to the day. Service was very friendly and we found parking on the main street! Located by the 57 tram and a couple blocks from the station pop this place on your to eat list.
