After reading Peta’s review of Bluebird cafe on Johnston St I realised that it was the same place I had ridden past and noticed recently, and that made me keener to stop in for a coffee. I did better than that by having breakfast on a midweek morning on my way to work. The coffee is good, the interior is cute and quirky, and reflects the owner’s interest in cars, bikes and Italy.

I had a toasted pide with prosciutto, spinach and fried egg. The salty prosciutto and the balsamic on the spinach made a fantastic combination.

I believe the cafe is named after the 1960s Bluebird-Proteus CN7 car designed to break the land speed record driven by Donald Campbell (a model of the car is in the window below).

    Dude, your breakfasts are out of control. And by out of control, I mean: fucking delicious.

      Hello! Is London not serving up breakfast deliciousness for you? Are you nostalgic for your old hood? The inner north is blooming with new cafes and social media everywhere!

    Eating out in London is expensive and frequently disappointing. Breakfasts are especially sad-making affairs (remember the greasy “caff” in Withnail and I? Alas it’s neither fiction nor a defunct artifact of the 60s).

    No yeah, I am both hankering for a fancy North Melbourne-style brekkie, and a tad homesick (as usual)!
