Looking for a quiet breakfast spot, S, Auntie and I popped into Cafe No 12. A cute corner cafe on Commercial Road, it was a welcome change from the crowded cafes in the busier parts of Prahran.
After ordering at the counter, we took a seat in the sunny courtyard to enjoy the morning warmth. We waited quite a long time for food but were pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of the dishes when they were served.
Fluffy potato hash browns were golden and crispy on the outside and were the perfect base for freshly poached eggs and a generous helping of crispy bacon.
The corn toast was dense and sweet, served with braised black beans, cheese and avocado and topped with a fresh tomato salsa.
The basics were also done well; eggs sunny-side up, juicy pork sausage, spinach and avocado, with thickly cut toast.
Generous and unpretentious, this relatively private cafe is definitely a spot I would recommend if you’re looking for a no-fuss, relaxed meal.
