I got there at about 11:30 and a small crowd had gathered outside. I went in and put my name down. The lovely woman who greeted me estimated about a 40 minute wait. Totoro and I took that time to check out some of the nearby shops and start our catch up - a little bit about work, a little bit about boys and a lot about how awesome we are. Smirk.
Sorry the photos don't do the food justice. But even these poor quality shots will urge you to visit Catch 122 for brunch. It was as good as the anticipation leading up to it -- the reviews I read a month ago were great, the word of mouth advice I got over the past few weeks were positive, and then the moment I arrived there was a line.
Totoro and I were seated around the time they said a table would open up. I'll say service dwindled during our visit, but it was fine otherwise so nothing to get fussed about. The unexpected treat that accompanied our drinks was a nice surprise:
|Delicious banana bread. |
And for those that know me, I am an expert on banana bread.
|Creamy not heavy with notes of citrus.|
Totoro ordered the Catch 122. She enjoyed it but I agree with her in that it would have been bettered deconstructed:
|Poached eggs, house-smoked and cured wild salmon,|
dill creme fraiche, arguula, croissant
