|Location| Trio – 56 Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach
|Price| $25 ~ $35 pp

One of the brunch places we went to late last year that we found quite enjoyable was Trio. It’s at a really good location because it’s located just off the main road in Bondi, opposite the beach. So if you like sitting outdoors / have pets or prams / love the beach / ocean view or all of the above, then this is for you.
Even though there was a 30-minute wait to get a table, by the time you drop your name and number, have a walk around Bondi, they would have called you back and have been seated already. We got a seat outside the cafe which was perfect for the weather that day.

As Trio was first in first serve, their service was also first in first serve. Being a weekend, they might have been a bit busy. They weren’t able to provide efficient service but still, we managed to place our order sitting outside enjoying the beautiful beach / ocean view.

Drink – Cappuccino $4
We placed our order and the cappuccino finally came.
(+) The cappuccino was nice and not too bitter. I also liked how it had a trio logo on it representing the cafe which I thought was a great idea too.
(-) Not sure if it was because we took photos for too long or talked a bit too much before drinking the coffee, we realised the coffee could have been a little hotter.

Brekkie #1 Trio Breakfast Burrito $20

Shredded chorizo chilli, scrambled eggs with cheddar & chilli, pepper & lime salsa, guacamole & warm tortilla, served deconstructed

(+) I quite liked the cute presentation the Trio Breakfast Burrito. Instead of just having the food scooped on the square plate, the Breakfast Burrito came in two little frying pans – one with the scrambled eggs (loved how it was nice and fluffy) and the other with the salsa and guacamole (not too chilli, good for those that can only take a slight bit of chilli).
(-) The proportion for the Burrito was a little bit too much for breakfast. We didn’t end up finishing the two pans so it was a bit of a waste.

Brekkie #2 Mediterranean Breakfast $26
Poached eggs with truffle oil on olive sourdough,served with char-grilled haloumi, crispy pancetta, semi-dried tomatoes, spinach & chorizo (Gluten Free Option available)

(+) For me, I love revealing my poached eggs on my side of bread for brunch so that it can run freely on the olive sourdough, and I wouldn’t have to madly scrape it off the plate after it’s bursted. The chorizo, haloumi and semi dried tomatoes, added a Mediterranean twist to the breakfast. The pancetta (not to be mistaken with Prosciutto) was crispy and slightly burnt but was not chewy at all.  My plate of breakfast had the right serving and is great for those that have a small appetite.

(-) I mixed the truffle oil with spinach but the full flavour of the truffle oil couldn’t come through enough. Slightly disappointed but maybe next time Trio could top it off with something else more interesting!
