Three Bags Full
60 Nicholson Street
Abbotsford VIC 3067
We visited Three Bag Full on Melbourne Cup day after our monthly marketing at Victoria Market. During the visit, we were seated directly under a huge painting and behind the painting lies a story. Apparently the owner discovered a really old 1930’s Melbourne Cup tipping graffiti on the wall during renovation and I was amazed that it was very well preserved. We even had the honour of viewing it.
As usual we started off by satisfying our caffeine addiction. They definitely served good coffee.
Mr. and me both aren’t coffee drinker till we walked passed Jasper coffee at Fitzroy on Brunswick Street few years ago. The strong and fragrant coffee smell actually attracted us to walk in and purchased a cup of mocha. We enjoyed the coffee so much that we ended up buying some coffee beans, a stovetop espresso maker, a electric milk frother to whip the milk and a thermal mug. It was full on from then and no turning back. We are so spoiled till unless we know it’s going to be good coffee if not we won’t even bother paying to get some.
Mr. had the Egg Benedict with Smoked Salmon. The eggs were poached to our liking and the hollandaise sauce was very different from the others. It’s not overpowering and doesn’t feel sick when had it too much.
As for me, I had the Ricotta Hot Cake with Poached Pears, Berries and Rhubard. It was my 1st time having ricotta hot cake and also rhubard! It’s also a dish I wouldn’t create in my own kitchen because I’m not confidence to. Not knowing what to expect, I actually enjoyed it a lot. Did felt there was too much ricotta cheese and left some aside. But guess that’s just me not having the habit of taking much cheese.
Did noticed the crowd started streaming in even though it was a great day for sleeping in! It didn’t take long for all the seats to get occupied.
We are starting to adventure into breakfast and hope we can cover more new cafes this new year.
