I’m really not sure why we haven’t spent more time in Albert Park/Middle Park. It’s such a quiet, stunning area with so much to offer. I was all alone on Sunday morning, so decided to treat myself to a quiet brekky before heading off to the market.
ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE
The Petty Officer cafe is a stunning, well lite cafe with a welcoming vibe. I arrived just before 10:30am, prime time I know!, and was able to get a table along the wall, which was lined with tall windows. I was surprised at how big the space was, which seemed to go one forever past the coffee bar.
White walls and ceilings create a bright and natural ambiance, while hints of black accents come through the lighting and wall decor. The service was genuinely friendly from all the wait staff. Smiling as they carried dishes and coffees, saying hello the moment you walked through the door, and coming back to make sure your food is okay. It really is the little things that sometimes make the biggest difference.
Here you will find fresh, local ingredients used to fill their modern Australian style brunch menu. The Specialty Coffee blend is sourced from Cartel Coffee Roasters from Geelong, VIC, which I must admit, makes a pretty delicious coffee!
For breakfast I ordered the ‘Open Spanish Omelet’ which had chorizo, fired roasted peppers, Spanish onion, mint, avocado salsa with warm Turkish bread. Oh My Gosh! It was amazing! The chorizo had a slight kick to it and was perfectly seasoned, the mint gave a refreshing finish and paired with the avocado, it was a winning dish!
Overall, another great breakfast in Albert Park! I think I’m going to have to start heading this way more often! The service was flawless, the food was tasty and the atmosphere was buzzing, without being overcrowded.
