Nothing better than finding a suburban cafe that creates a tasty breakfast and produces a decent coffee! Refuelled on the main drag at Wellington Point does just that.
Al and I recently caught up with our friends Miss S and Mr P for a leisurely Saturday breakfast. None of us had been here before but my foodie friend Miss P had eaten lunch here and was suitably impressed so I was pretty sure we were onto a good thing.
I choose the corn fritters with bacon, avocado, roasted tomato (which I promptly moved to one side) and a tomato and bell pepper jam. It was a large serving but the corn fritters were light and a good texture. The star was definitely the jam. Sweet and slightly tart it was a lovely addition to what could have been a bland dish.
Al choose the grilled chorizo, red pepper, roast tomato, poached egg and olive crumb with sourdough toast. No complaints here.
Miss S and Mr P both choose the field mushrooms, spinach, basil pesto, pine nuts, haloumi and sourdough. Once this dish finally arrived (it took a little time) I once again had food envy. I’ve had this a bit lately 😦 The mushrooms looked juicy and the haloumi perfectly fried.
Other breakfast dishes that caught my attention; Ricotta hotcakes, braised oranges, almonds and strawberry coulis. Croque Monsieur and the Asian style fried eggs with smoked salmon, herbs and asian dressing. For traditionalists, Refuelled also does classic bacon and eggs and Eggs Benedict with a choice of ham, bacon or salmon.
It’s not a cheap breakfast option with dishes ranging in price from $15.50 for the ricotta hotcakes to $17 for the corn fritters. Still, I don’t mind paying for quality food and Refuelled didn’t disappoint.
We also tried a sour cherry and custard pastry which was a real winner. Coffee is by Campos and the barrista knew how to get the very best out of these beans.
My only small gripe is Refuelled does not do table service. You have to order at the counter. For a little extra effort this would, I think, improve the overall experience.
Refuelled is also open for lunch.
