Round 1 of coffee.
 Let's talk coffee. Usually content with one coffee accompanying breakfast, this was not the case for us at this amazing little Inner- West cafe. The coffee was so good we ordered yet another after our delightful breakfast. Though we were recommended this cafe for it's modern English breakfast menu, we must first highlight the great coffee which welcomed us to the Duchess of Spotswood. We now have two reasons to return for a lazy Sunday brunch. 

The Duchess has a large bench table out the front perfect for dog-owners and groups. On this particular outing, Gypsy met two other dogs and lots of dog-friendly visitors and the staff who were also absolutely fantastic with service.

Onto our exquisite meals, which was superior to any other local breakfast we have tried. The prices are slightly above other local spots too, however this was completely overlooked due to the wonderful experience of our brunch. Wonderful service, outstanding food and brilliant coffee. Worth the extra few gold coins and certainly worth the drive to Spotswood!

Simple Pleasures
 Sensational combination of broad beans, asparagus, baby radish, herbs and goats curd with sourdough toast and poached eggs.

Breakfast of Champignons
Potato and barley hash with field mushrooms, English Stilton & poached eggs.
