Breakfast with Soul
What: Marmalade and Soul
Where: 162 Queens Parade, Fitzroy North Vic 3068
Cornbeef Jaffle - A toasted jaffle sandwich, filled with baked beans and cornbeef, with a side of ‘salted egg yolk marmalade’. Tasty and filling.
Can’t wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.
Review: This quirky redevelopment is great, trendy but not ostentatious. The wooden spoon chandeliers are fun, the seats comfortable and practical, the décor is appropriate. Definitely a neighbourhood institution in the making, specialising in Modern British Food.
The coffee served here is decent (not quite competing with the rest of the neighbourhood's very high standards), and the desserts are all made in house (I just had to get a raspberry marshmallow takeaway – delicious).
It is soon to be open for dinner (selective nights), in addition to the existing lunch and breakfast.
