Brunch This Weekend headed out of Melbourne this weekend to celebrate the engagement of 2 of our closest friends.
This gave us a combination of a blank canvas along with many choices of brunch in Mornington alone. This day, a very cold and windy Saturday, I picked the Winey Cow (thanks to a recommendation of a friend)
I could tell this place was a hit as soon as I stepped inside, it was packed! The very friendly waitress greeted me like a local and advised that there would a slight wait or I could sit outside with a blanket (very nice offer but I would have needed more than a blanket).
After a very short wait I got seated, and with one of my favourite questions “would you like a coffee to start?” I was instantly happy with the Winey Cow.
As soon as my menu was handed to me, my eyes were drawn to the 12 hour slow cooked beef brisket served with a fried egg, onion purée and a Yorkshire pudding – very apt for the kind of day it was. Although the Brisket wasn’t as tender as I imagined it was still rich and full of taste, the fried egg was cooked perfectly and the pudding was a nice touch. My only other criticism is that it could have been a bit bigger and my personal preference is poached eggs but that’s splitting hairs.
As I was still a bit peckish, I had my eye on the coffee and walnut muffin – this would be great with my second latte. Moments later my muffin was in front of me. One thing was missing, my second coffee 🙁
I cannot wait to head back to The Winey Cow, there’s a lot to try.
Happy brunching my brunch lads and lasses.
Until next time,
