Where: Beyond the Pale, 3/300 Old Cleveland Rd, Coorparoo, Qld
What: Chilli Scrambled Eggs (Special)
From the Menu: Chilli scrambled eggs, pork and fennel sausage and goats cheese on sour dough
Any one who knows me will tell you that I am an avid breakfast eater. It is my favourite meal of the day and I like nothing more than sitting down in a café for some egg based sustenance. Whilst I have found a good breakfast somewhat easy to find but a truly great breakfast is as rare as hens teeth. This breakfast was, I am pleased to declare, a truly great breakfast.
There was no part of Beyond the Pale’s chilli scramble that I can fault. The eggs were perfectly scrambled, light and fluffy (yes I used the term fluffy in a food blog). The amount of chilli in the eggs was not overpowering but enough to “clear the nostrils”.
The scramble was obviously the focus of this dish but the accompaniments were just as good:
- The sausages complemented the scramble well and there was just the right amount of them to leave me not wanting any more.
- Goat’s cheese is an accompaniment I have not thought of as matching well with breakfast but I will be looking for it every time I eat breakfast now: it was so good I was trying to find a way to get a little bit in every mouthful.
- The sourdough bread was toasted perfectly and was a great base for this breakfast.
I simply can not fault this breakfast.
On the Side:
This breakfast was paired with an iced long black. It was excellent.
Will I be back?
I am actively looking for opportunities to get back on the south side of Brisbane to allow for more meals at Beyond the Pale to be inhaled. I will definitely be back.
The Final Word
I have eaten plenty of breakfasts at cafes in my time and this is up there with one of the best I have ever had. Every element was spot on. I can only hope the team at Beyond the Pale will put this dish on the full time menu so that I can have it again. I can not give a higher rating for this meal.
