Since having moved to Croydon I haven’t really checked out the local scene so when Mr D suggested to have a brunch date, I surely had to agree. Wondering around, we decided to check out Blackwork. Blackwork looks like it could be a cafe in the city with it’s chic interior, Proud Mary coffee and uber cool menu. There’s ample of parking across the road and it does get quite busy on a weekend so make sure you get in early.
The latte here is AH-MA-ZING! What do you expect when the Proud Mary coffee is in the house!
Mr D got the breakfast dog an oh my holy gosh, it was AMAZEBALLS! Sprinkled with bacon crumb and cheddar and served with chipotle aioli. It was like heaven in my mouth, a very savoury and flavoursome heaven!
Breakfast Hotdog – $20
Sausage, caramelised onion, sauerkraut, cheddar, bacon crumb, chipotle aioli & potato salad
I got the roasted sesame pea crush with smoked salmon and boy I felt super healthy eating it. It was very light but it needed a bit more zing to the dish.
Roasted Sesame Pea Crush – $19
Smoked Salmon, sourdough, poached egg, nori hollandaise
To finish off brunch I got a portuguese tart after seeing a review saying that we have to try it. However, I did and I was quite disappointed. It was very dense, the tart base wasn’t crumbly and was quite thick and the taste wasn;t there.
Blackwork is an awesome hidden gem and we will definitely be back to have brunch. That breakfast hotdog is the BOMB and if you do come here, definitely get it.
