Pretty Super Superette

27 09 2010

Nothing tastes as good as something that exceeds your expectations on a random Saturday morning. We were headed for The Old Biscuit Mill last weekend, and since hearing some pretty cool stuff about hippy-funky-deli-vibe Superette, have had an itch I needed to scratch about getting over there. And boy are we glad we did.

Superette is the kind of place where you can sit in a sunbeam with a (very decent) cup of coffee and lose yourself in your all-day breakfast, well, all day. Watch the world go by and feel like a real eco-warrior just by being on the premises. And a happy array of fresh organic produce stacked on a table for purchase top it all off nicely.

The service might be as organic as the food, but to be honest (and it’s not often I say this) it’s almost endearing in this context and you’d be silly to go there in a rush anyway. After all, wholesome, well-loved fresh food takes time to prepare, and I for one don’t feel any impetus to mess with that.

Everything about Superette is engaging and earthy, and you can taste their funk-less-the-fuss philosophy in every bite.

I opted for the all-day breakfast – no regrets. Scrambled eggs cooked to perfection on delicious ciabatta (baked in house of course). Next time I reckon I’ll take a cue from rob and have his 8/10-rated croque madame option (‘wife’ of the traditional French croque monsieur) – Ham and Cheese with an added egg).
