Another brunch date with my partner in crime L brought us to A Mother’s Milk. Luckily we caught the wave of people leaving – shuffling to the back we found ourselves in a tiny little room with a small bar stool table. Perfect, housing only the two of us gave me enough privacy to do gymnastics poses with my camera without feeling any sense of shame (might I add the lighting was really nice here too). First up was our coffees – my cappuccino tasted like milk while L said hers had a sour after taste, weird.

For anyone that knows me I am by far a vegetarian so reading the menu really left me short for choices – meat was only found in the BRT and smoked salmon dish. Being allergic to fish (not shellfish), I ordered the BRT and it was huge and came with so much bacon. The crispy sour dough bread was smeared with tangy mayonnaise, sandwiched between bitter rocket, roasted tomatoes and runny egg. A vinegar sauce was drizzled around the rocket keeping it flavoursome and not dry. The bacon had a ham like texture and wasn’t crispy – just a preference but I like crispy bacon. The BRT really caught me by surprised with how tasty and generous the serving was (I couldn’t even finish it).
BRT (bacon, rocket and tomato and egg on sour dough bread) – $12 + $3 for egg
L’s dish sounded delicious with baked eggs over napoletana sauce but I didn’t get a chance to taste it (I was hard at work trying to finish the BRT).
Baked almond grove eggs over home style napoletana sauce with shaved provolone cheese and fresh parsley served with crusty sour dough – $12
A Mother’s Milk is actually a perfect place for vegetarians to visit. Lovely energetic service from our waiter with deliciously filling dishes made this place A-okay. Next time I might head for the lunch menu as I am loving the sound of steak sandwich.
