Good things come in 3 Blue Ducks.....

Three Blue Ducks or as the yummy mummies around Bronte call it, Three Great F&%$s! Why? Because three professionally trained (young & good-looking) chefs, a couple of whom have Tetsuya on their resume, decided to open up their dream cafe in Bronte beach. After travelling the world together they decided surfing and being the object of women's desires was more of a priority than feeding high-brow types over white linen. The result? Casual coffee and excellent eggs whilst breathing in the sea air.

The cafe won't be hard to find along Bronte'sΒ MacPherson Street shops, the place is constantly swarmed with people trying to snag a seat. So much so that the barista next door decide he join forces with the ducks to create extra space. And what a space it is! It has a rustic, DIY feel with street style art adorning the walls and mis-matching furniture creating an unpretentious place for the pretentious pigs that come here.

After hearing, reading and seeing the hype around Three Blue Ducks my expectations were high to say the least. Things were off to a great start when we got seated straight away and served perfectly brewed coffee, so I was getting even more excited about the food. The menu is small and intriguing. After a few mojitos the night before I needed something big and bad for me. The eggs benedict with wilted spinach and smoked trout had caught my eye but the thought of fish was unpalatable at that point so I asked for it to be substituted with bacon.

Apparently my order translated into poached eggs, bacon, roasted tomato and a side of basil with no hollandaise and a substantial serving of attitude on the side. The waitress was rudeΒ and unapologetic. Perhaps she just needs a good duck? That aside the meal was still tasty, as was the bacon and egg roll.

The Bitter: Staff that seem unwilling to serve you The Sweet: Perfectly poached eggs and great art work The Damage: Standard breakfast - meal and coffee will cost $25 per pig.

Oink Oink,
