Manchester Press, CBD MELB

On my last few days in Adelaide, I have spent most of my meal times at my favourite restaurants/cafes just for memory's sake. The thought of not getting my weekly fix when needed and the fact that I now need to explore unknown places is exciting but yet daunting at the same time.

I have walked into places where I am left severely disappointed so do note, do NOT believe everything you read online. This same quote applies to doing your university assignments too;) I was equally intrigued and fearful that I might be disappointed here but truth be told, I left a happy foodie.

This is a tiny cafe situated in one of Melbourne CBD's lanes (take note 2, eat in the little lanes for good food) and so, be prepared to wait especially on busy days. Customer turnover is pretty quick so it shouldn't take too long to get a table.

Menu wise, this place serves mostly bagel inspired dishes. Do not expect your classic brekkie menu..probably because traditional dishes are too mainstream?:P

I am slowly beginning to appreciate coffee and what better place to test out my new found interest than in Melbourne where most coffee outlets are good:)

Closed bagel with avocado, tomato, bacon and cheese ~ not much a bagel fan but I do make exceptions. It does not look like much but trust me, it does fill you up.

Maple bacon and banana on raisin bagel topped with mascarpone cheese~ a quirky combination that worked well. Salty meets sweet and healthy meets naughty. Probably a bit more on the sweeter side. The non-sugar friend liked it so it's a winner:) Do give this a go if you are bored of the safer food combinations.
