The Pantry on Egmont @ Hawthorn
Situated on Egmont Terrace this little place is an absolute hidden gem that has certainly been well and truly found and frequented by the locals. I had heard about it from a friend and decided it would be a good Sunday brunch location. The place was pretty busy and obviously popular.
It's a very eccentric place combining many nostalgic vintage items to create a old fashioned kitchen feel. I thought the place was brilliant, bright and comfortable I could spend all afternoon by the window.
They also had some paintings on display. As you can see there were vinyl and wood tables alike with mis-matched chairs creating a lot of character. Next to where we were sitting was a nice touch of wines and teas on display with a fantastic selection of special blends of tea.
|My Fresh Apple, Carrot and Ginger Juice was soooo good!|
Burger on Egmont - Onkaparinga Venison burger patty with smoked bacon, red onion jam, provolone cheese, rocket, garlic aioli and fries $17.90. The burger was divine with beautiful smoked flavour and a very juicy, tasty Venison patty.
Russel’s big breakfast - free range eggs poached, bacon, Csabai sausage, field mushroom & house made baked beans with slow roasted tomato on sour dough toast $17.90. The eggs were poached well and runny on the inside, the sourdough toast was fresh and tasted so good. I love sourdough bread. The sausage was different to what you would normally get, it was very delicious and the bacon was of good quality. What interested me was their home made baked beans. It tasted really good and much better than usual tomato sauce beans that you get.
Food was definitely good and the service is friendly. Everyone seems happy and enthusiastic to be there and it's a really good vibe. The Pantry on Egmont only opens for breakfast and lunch or functions but occasionally they host special dinner events so do check their website from time to time.
