Axil Coffee Roasters, Hawthorn MELB

Melbourne is truly a brunch lover's playground as there's so many variations to choose from be it your typical big brekkies loaded with bacon and poached eggs; to something a little Asian inspired such as ramen or congee to a dessert party with hotcakes or the prettiest muesli bowls you would have laid your eyes on.

I rarely get the opportunity to brunch out each in the morning and am really thankfully for H who made the effort to bring a rather overly enthusiastic and annoying me here. The cafe was already packed full of hungry brunch-ers at 11.30am but we still managed to get seats after waiting for about 10 minutes.

Coffee ~ aromatic best describes my cup of caffeine that day. Have also found out that Axil does barista classes so for those keen on picking up a few handy lessons, you know where to go;)

Scrambled eggs with bacon and cured trout ~ this picture probably doesn't do this plate of food any justice. $10 for a plate of golden, scrambled eggs with toast - you're definitely getting your money's worth on eggs, that's for sure;)

Ferrero rocher chocolate waffles with hazelnut parfait, toasted hazelnuts, crushed wafer biscuits and gianduja chocolate curls. I was torn between ordering this or the equally notorious pancakes but I have stuck to my gut feelings and went ahead with the waffles. Didd not disappoint at all. Good dose of chocolate that's drenched in a savoury and nutty parfait to combat against excessive sweetness from the waffles. Highly recommended and only set back is I was looking forward to two pieces of waffle haha;P

Overall, a very enjoyable brunch session made possible by H and good food + coffee :) Life is indeed good.
