doing the fandango

Fandango is a teensy-tiny cafe situated in the less busy part of Errol Street in North Melbourne. A couple of years ago, I was proud to call it one of my local breakfast joints, though on weekends it was always understandably packed. Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of catching up with my girlfriend C for a quick bite to eat and some overdue nattering before I headed to work.

While C very sensibly sipped on lattes, I ordered the pesto scrambled eggs on sourdough with a side of bacon. Pesto and eggs don’t sound like the ideal combination but the smoothness of the eggs and the crunch of the nuts in pesto is actually pretty bloody awesome. I’m a convert!

Because it was the start of my day, I got tea rather than coffee. Apparently, I got one of the ‘strong’ tea cosies! The last time I visited, I got a pink and white one. They’re so cute!

Fandango is such a great place to have as a local breakfast spot. The staff are really friendly, the breakfast dishes are solid (I’ve had the bircher muesli, beetroot eggs and French toast before and all have been delicious). They always seem to have cool music playing in the background too.
