Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Grooving … Blake Street Merchant opened it’s doors five or so weeks ago. The venue itself has seen quite a few incarnations and I’m hoping this one is going to stick.
The venue is gorgeous, they make use of lots of wood but not in an overpowering way. It’s streamlined and a little bit funky.
My new favourite, a short macchiato, made an appearance and this was some seriously good coffee. Finely engineered, strong and frothy. Yum.
There were quite a few interesting brunch options, love a challenging menu.
Ordered the Potato Hash with crispy kale, black honey roasted pumpkin and a poached egg. The presentation was fabulous with the crunchy greens and that caramelised pumpkin, wow, star of the show!
So, that hash cake was super crunchy on the outside and creamy inside. I’m not sure how they accomplished that but it was insanely good.
Enjoyed every mouthful and it was hard work to eat all that food but I managed somehow. Thanks to the staff for my very pleasant visit.
