With our first exam (Nov 5) down and 2 more to go (Nov 7&8), Mike and I headed down to Roma on Nov 6 for some breakfast and a few solid hours of studying.
We had paid $19 for a voucher at Chez Nous Cafe worth $48. It included 2 breakfasts or lunches and 2 drinks.
The location couldn’t be more convenient – just across the street from Roma St Station.
We walked inside expecting a limited menu to choose from as part of our deal but it was a pleasant surprise to be told that we could pick anything off the extensive menu. The prices of each item would be added up and if the total was over $48, then we would just pay the difference.
We both ended up ordering the big breakfast with a coffee and a can of lemonade. There was plenty of outdoor seating, but we opted to sit inside with airconditioning and a slightly quieter atmosphere.
The food arrived quite quickly, and it was the nicest plated breakfast we’ve had in Brisbane. Most other places we’ve been to haphazardly chuck everything onto the plate so it was nice to see a little effort into food arrangement.
The big breakfast consisted of 2 pieces of buttered toast, 2 eggs, a lot of bacon, a sausage patty, 2 hashbrowns, 2 big slices of grilled haloumi and a serving of tomato relish. Everything was really nicely cooked, which was definitely a nice change from the last few breakfasts we’ve had out.
Our dishes were promptly cleared from the table and we settled into studying. Nov 6 was also Melbourne Cup Day so it became pretty busy and loud as more people came in to watch the horse races. But that was alright, we headed home for more studying on the comfort of our couch 😉
Friendly staff, fast service, good food, nice atmosphere… would we come back again? Definitely. Even without a voucher!
