|The sign for Milkwood is nondescript|
Being near to Brunswick, the Boy suggested we try Milkwood. Milkwood is owned by ex-owners of Cafe Rosamond Diana Korndoffer and Alex Patterson
|For some odd reason, their "open" sign has Chinese characters with it...|
So we turned up to find the place bustling with people (and doggies), and that the wait time for a table was anywhere between 20-30 mins... that meant that it had to be good... right?
Logic prevails, if there are a group of people waiting for food, and if the wait time is long.. it has to be good. I prayed that this wasn't going to turn out like my visit to Richmond Hill and Larder Cafe.
After a short 25 minute wait (girls can talk and pass the time rather quickly as it happens, with the boys just looking on and making small talk) ^_^
As usual, we ordered some pots of English Breakfast tea whilst the others had coffee and water.

She mentioned that it was a bit too cheesy... and I replied, "You did order cheese!"... oh well...
As far as breakfast joints go, this was a pretty good and decent meal. Very inventive in their ways to get you to pay more than you should for breakfast as you'll want to order a lot of the sides (and it ain't cheap).
Would I return? Possibly. Only if, Pope Joan (further down the road) is full and doesn't welcome my presence anymore.
With Pope Joan located literally just a stone throws away, I much rather go visit Matt Wilkinson and his breakfast joint :)
*there is a reason to this name... if you read Terry Pratchett books and are somewhat akin to his Discworld novels, you will know who the Librarian is. And if you know who the Librarian is, you will know why the Librarian is called the Librarian
