Breakfast @ Two Peas - Glebe

I go to bed early just to wake up to a huge tasty breakfast accompanied by a nice hot cup of joe. Whether it be eggs and bacon, waffles, pancakes, muesli, fruit and yoghurt - I LOVEEEE Breakfast and thank god K, the boyfriend does to. Downside - K is a cyclist so breakfasts at places that aren't so local are rare, so this morning was a treat.

We drove to Two Peas in Glebe, a cute light filled cafe on St Johns Road. I am not super familiar with Glebe but it seemed to be down the quieter end of the road (it was also 9:00 on a Saturday morning haha) towards Sydney Uni. Owners Nick Johnson and Tom Stoneham describe their little gem as a 'relaxed and fun' place serving organic, local and seasonal produce. The wall on the back of the kitchen explains they cook their produce with the respect it deserves. 

We were greeted and told to sit wherever we wanted and of course, K, chooses the long bench, the only table not set up for diners. This wasn't an issue and we were shortly attended to by a friendly waitress who gave us our menus, which were produced by recycled paper, and took an order for coffee - two long blacks please! ($3.00 each). I decided to go with the big breakfast of organic eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomato, spinach, beans, croquettes and black pudding ($19.50) and K had bacon, eggs and sourdough ($14.50). Both food and coffee (Five Senses) came quick. Due to my restrictive "paleolithic/gluten free/dairy free diet attempt #50000", my croquette, beans and sourdough went quickly onto K's plate.

I just get so happy when people can do a good bacon n eggs, some people really battle with it. Either the egg is cooked to hard, not enough, the bacon is burnt, or you get the shitty bit of bacon which is just the fat. Not this time - Everything was cooked to perfection - except the black pudding - ONLY cause i did not actually eat it!!! I am daring but not ready for that yet! My eggs, when sliced, dripped all over my bacon and tomatoe but not to the point where you just taste egg. oh egg.

Two Peas also opens for dinner and has a private dining room out back for larger groups of guests after some more privacy. Overall experience 8.5/10! A very impressive breakfast!
