Brunch at the Early Bird

G and I each had a cheeky day off work last Friday, as it was our wedding anniversary (more on that later!). We decided to start the day off with a leisurely brunch at the Early Bird in Cathays.

Does anyone else love breakfast as much as me? It’s the best meal of the day. Eggs, toast, coffee, pastries……sometimes alcohol….what’s not to like?! 

I’d seen a few people tweeting about the Early Bird, a new bakery/cafe in the heart of studentville on Woodville Road, so that’s where we headed.

The cafe itself is rustic; exposed brick and woodwork, an open kitchen, mismatched crockery and very cool staff mean it’s a hipsters paradise. G and I were definitely the oldest – and least cool – people there. 

We both went for the Hulk Smash (what a name!); toasted sourdough topped with smashed avocado, a perfect poached egg and lashings of chipotle sauce. (Loads of sauce. Seriously, don’t order this if you’re not into spicy food. Luckily, I like it).

The breakfast was accompanied by a very strong black Americano, just how I like it. 

As we left we couldn’t resist the amazing-looking pastries, so took a cinnamon swirl and a brownie to go. 

The picture below was after a trip down the M4 and does not do justice to the swirl, which was rather squashed by the time I ate it. But it still tasted absolutely lush. Yum yum yum.

We paid in full for our food and drinks at The Early Bird and the cafe was not aware I’d be blogging about them.
