Poached eggs at Coco lounge

Sunday mornings (and Saturday nights) are probably the most relaxing time of the week. I go for my usual jog, then make myself a great breakfast. Sunday lunches at home usually consists of dim sum. My mum buys frozen dim sum from a local Asian place and steams it at home. It's just as good as the ones you eat out in a restaurant.

But today's Sunday lunch was different. Or shall I say brunch? 

I went out with my oldest sister to Kingsway. She bought me brunch/lunch at Coco lounge! Perks of having older siblings.

We had the breakfast menu though (available until 3) and we both had eggs begs. It is eggs benedict, but with avocado and bacon. OH and it is served on whole wheat toast, not an English muffin. 

I have been to Coco lounge a few times and have always enjoyed every single time. I've had dinner there, eating some delicious pizza! I love how the restaurant is set out. It's so cosy and warm, lit with candles. Great place to escape from the cold weather Melbourne is currently having.

I had iced chocolate. Even though it's cold, I'd pick iced chocolate over hot chocolate any day.

Eggs begs- definitely recommend it. I love poached eggs, but I rarely have them since they're a bit troublesome to make. I eat soft boiled eggs on toast for my weekday breakfast though. I also had hash browns. Lovely crisp, flavoursome and warm hash browns.
Two poached eggs with hollandaise sauce, grilled bacon, avocado salsa on whole wheat toast.

My favourite part.
 This month is the last month of winter, but it is unusually early that blossoms are blooming. On the way home, I saw these cherry blossoms. My sister said "I think the trees are confused!"
