A few people noticed that I haven’t actually written about many of my favourite cafes and restaurants around Sydney – the places that I just keep going back to. The Wedge Espresso, a cafe filling a somewhat awkward, long, corridor-like space, is definitely a staple in my life. I like the fact that it is just off the main craziness of Glebe Point Road, quiet enough to have a decent conversation and you’re not jostling around to get a table (like at other Glebe Point Road cafes). But what I like most is definitely the Breakfast Plate.

- What we ate:
I can basically guarantee that I will always pick the Breakfast Plate ($14). It is really my ideal meal – a little bit of lots of different things. True, I don’t like tomatoes much and often hand them over to DS, but everything else on the plate is basically perfect. How can you resist the beautifully swirled avocado on toast? Prosciutto and boiled egg, topped off with just the right serving of muesli to make you feel full and well nourished.
AKB went for the muesli ($11), which consisted of chai-soaked oats, green apple, dates, figs, cinnamon, yoghurt, honey and baby basil. Hold on – basil, you say? In muesli?! You heard/read correctly, and though unusual, it worked really well! The young basil has a slightly sweeter taste and compliments the flavours well. AKB tells me the coffee is great too – so please do check out this little place!
