I was in Sydney yesterday and today doing a course at the Macquarie Graduate School of Management. Worthwhile but not really something to blog about. Breakfast, however, deserves close scrutiny.

Breakfast today was at Industrie: South of France on Pitt St in Sydney. Not the most exciting part of the city for food and drink. Finding good food and drink in Sydney is a trial, at least from a Melbourne point of view. Industrie make a fabulous macchiato and delicious sour dough toast with a choice of spreads. I chose pear and vanilla jam, which was joyous.

Less joyous was the service. It wasn’t busy, but they took their time clearing the table I sat at and bringing me water. After ordering and eating my breakfast they ignored me. They didn’t come to clear the table or ask if I wanted another coffee. I probably would have said yes. I enjoyed the coffee and the toast but probably wouldn’t go back. Pear and vanilla jam alone does not make me feel special.
