Amongst the construction in South Yarra lies little bustling cafe called Two Birds One Stone (such a cute name don’t you think?). Many people pop in and out for some coffees and others will wait for a table. We walked in on Sunday morning and boy was it busy. There were people everywhere, staff running around and the sound of coffee being frantically made. We got a table and you know the rules, first we coffee.
We got the bondi and a mixed juice (so we could detox before the brunching feast started) and boy they were refreshing. The Bondi had apple, ginger, pineapple, carrot and lemon and it was oh so delish! A flat white landed in front of me and had a great aroma. Unfortunately, it didn’t give me the kick I needed.
Bondi – $7 Mixed Juice – $7 Flat White – $4
I’m a huge seafood fan and I couldn’t pry my eyes from the citrus cured pan seared salmon on the menu. The dish did not disappoint. It was perfectly cooked the potato rosti was saaaah delish – crispy on the outside and soft and hot on the inside. The poached egg was eggcellent and oozed out yellow goodness. Salmon lovers, this is for you!
Citrus Cured Pan Seared Salmon – $22
With quinoa & green peas salad, potato rosti, a poached egg with peas and wasabi puree
When the wagyu beef burger came out, we were disappointed. We couldn’t see the beef patty at all (where are you?!). The bun was so fluffy and as you keep biting into the burger, you’ll finally meet the plump and juicy patty. The patty was frigging to die for! The potato wedges were fresh, thickly cut but needed a touch more seasoning.
Wagyu Beef Burger – $20
With black garlic aioli, onion jam, baby cos, tomato, pickled cucumber, swiss cheese & potato wedges
The star of the day was the ricotta pancakes. They weren’t overly dense and that rhubarb and raspberry compote was divine. The vanilla mascarpone tied it all together and this was amazing! I couldn’t get enough of it.
Ricotta Pancakes – $18.50
With rhubarb & raspberry compote, vanilla mascarpone, seasonal fruit & toasted pistachio
Two Birds One Stone is a great little cafe that serves great food. We will definitely be back for those ricotta pancakes.
