My bestie just came back from Melbourne and knowing my love and passion towards good coffee, she brought back a pack of freshly ground beans from there! AWESOME! My office bound days just turned a whole lot brighter!
McIvers is located at the Dairy Hall at Queen Victoria market, and the shop has been there since 1951! They partner with another family which helps them to roast their coffee beans, where as for tea, they taste, blend and import themselves.
The beans Neets bought are East Timor Organic, with notes of lemon and black tea at the end palate, full bodied and lasting finish.
After a good cuppa in the morning, that worked up a great appetite and Brussels it is for lunch! The moment I mentiones Brussels, friends think I would be having a lobster high session, not knowing that Brussels do serve lunch sets with salad bars than its widely famed beers.
I ordered the bacon and egg sandwich, which was pretty decent surprisingly. The bacon was a little fatty, but thickened. They were rather generous too with the scrambled eggs. RM 13.90++. You can top up a couple o’ dollars for a free flow of salad. I opted out as I was not in a greeny weeny mood today.
The rain began to pour down like cats and dogs and we were stuck in the cafe. Oh well…desserts then! We ordered the belgian waffles and instead of whipped cream, they served meringues. Instead of that being a bonus point, the meringue was not fresh and a little hard too, the usual whipped cream would have done more wonders.
The waffles were not bad, but they did look somewhat similar to the pre-made frozen waffles you may buy at Cold Storage. Nothing much to shout about for this waffles. Then again, I am not expecting much to be having desserts in a drinking place. Nonetheless, we had fun chatting and laughing over the silliness of many things while eating them waffles under the cold and wet weather!
