Breakfast Club Diaries Part 1 - Got a bob (or two)?

Firstly, apologies for the uber ginourmous gap between my last post and this one. I have been busy having a life... *coughpartyanimalcough* Well, no not really - but I have been involved in a number of interesting undertakings that have taken up a lot of my time over the past few months, the details of which I shall not bore you with.

So yes, here we are! BC meeting #5 was at Two:bob, a pretty simplistic, hipster-type cafe in Clifton Hill. It was recommended by B Ninja L (BNL for short), who had taken on his turn as BC meeting recommender with a great sense of responsibility and solemnity, having extensively researched and trialled multiple breakfast venues before deciding on Two:bob as the location of our next foray into the (mouth-)watering and wonderful world of breakfast food.

Housed in what seemed to be an old post office or bank, Two:bob's high ceiling, tall, arched windows and white and beige wooden furniture presented a bright, open dining area perfect for a cheerful and cosy catch-up with friends. The service was prompt, yet friendly - this was the day that the new iPhone5 had been released and our good 'ol Apple afficionado, Nintendo DS, had just collected her shiny new phone - much to the delight of our (very hipster) waitress, who ooh-ed and aah-ed over it for a good few minutes after taking our coffee orders.

I had ordered the omelet with pork and fennel sausage with the oh-so-delicate buffalo mozzarella that came sprinkled with some rocket salad and the optional spicy tomato relish on the side (which our waitress insisted was the perfect accompaniment). She was right! I loved this dish - my only regret was that my stomach wasn't big enough for me to completely smash the meal. I slowed down considerably towards the end, but with great perseverance managed to polish the plate clean (so to speak!). The relish was indeed the perfect sweet and tangy accompaniment to the omelet.

EP ordered the big breakfast (the most blokey dish on the menu) that came with poached eggs, pork sausages, bacon, grilled tomato, mushrooms, potato rosti and onion jam. If you had just spent a month fighting a raging war in some obscure corner of the world and returned to Melbourne, this is what you would have ordered to fill your roaring belly. Perfectly poached egg, accompanied by the assortment of sides that had been so well prepared, there really was no fault to find with this dish.

I would like to continue on about the rest of the food we had, but alas! time dulls the mind, and my mind truly has been dulled by the 4-5 month lull between the occurrence of the BC meeting and this post. Apparently, according to my photos, someone had some mushroom and goat's cheese on toast dish that looks divine and must have tasted just as divine, but I cannot for the life of me remember which Breakfast Clubber this was and what they thought of the meal... :s Err, yeah and now to the next BC meeting in this series!
