Horner & Pratt, Adelaide

Guys, I heard the saddest thing the other day. W who made us dinner one night asked her fiance “hey taste this, is it okay? I have no tastebuds.” I didn’t know she meant it literally! She has a hereditary gene where she has weak tastebuds with everything tasting the same D: I started wondering what it would be like to be her … there are the pros where you aren’t picky and can eat everything (including veggies). Cons: I like food.

Horner & Pratt Spinach Eggs

Spinach Eggs – Toasted sourdough rye, two poached eggs, fresh baby spinach, salmon, cracked pepper and fresh lime ($13 but extra $4 for salmon)

If I was W I wouldn’t be a bringer of doom for brunch places – I swear it’s not intentional. I do like brunch but most places are overpriced, over hyped and tastes pretty ordinary. Another get together with the peeps found us at the super hipster Hornet & Pratt on East Terrace.

Horner & Pratt

S you are famous – peace sign!

Crispy toasted Turkish bread with bites of meaty bacon, bitter rocket, gooey cheese, fried egg and sweet onion jam. Not sure if the $16 price tag justified it as it tasted like a nice sandwich.

Horner & Pratt Breakfast Burger

Breakfast Burger – Lightly toasted Turkish bread, fried egg, bacon, fresh rocket, Swiss cheese and topped with a house made onion jam ($16)

The guys that got the breakfast burrito enjoyed their meal. It actually looked like quite a good combo ;)

Horner & Pratt Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast burrito – Crispy burrito filled with bacon, fried egg, refried beans, diced fresh tomato, spring onion and tomato relish ($14)

My breakfast burger was quite ordinary with nothing really standing out – it tasted okay but left me bored. Maybe I just chose the wrong meal? I dunno, it doesn’t have me wanting to run back to try my luck again :/

Food: 2.5/5
Service: 3/5
Atmosphere: 2.5/5

    I agree that some brunch prices can be a bit OTT. I’m a sucker for a brekky burrito though! :)

    Wow having no tastebuds would be so sad! I guess she’d be craving different textures then?

      Hmm not sure actually what she craves but I think from the few things she can taste, they have to be really strong flavours :S
