Waking up between 5 and 6 in the morning during my holidays sounds like an absolute waste after a long period of grinding. Nevertheless, the term breakfast soon becomes something very relevant and interestingly rewarding. My first morning at home was a breakfast date with my sister at Architects and Heroes. This geek themed hipster-ish place in Subiaco has a cosy fit out which walls are graced by the many characters in comics.
My morning staple switches between a choice of tea or chocolate. In this instance, it was the latter and I was glad to have ordered the hot chocolate here. It is easily one of the best cocoa drink in town if not the best. It tasted mildly sweet with a good cocoa intensity and more importantly, a smooth creamy consistency. Give me a cup any day and I will gladly drink it up.
Almond Croissant, what is there to dislike?
My initial choice for breakfast was the steak but the kitchen ran out of cooking oil or something. Taking a second look at the menu, I decided to go with a serve of green eggs.
Taste wise, the green eggs were really nice and the eggs were cooked well. It was a shame that the yolks were not runnier. My biggest dislike though was probably how the layout & presentation did not complement the eating. I would have liked the slabs of ham placed on the toast before letting the eggs lay sexily on the toast and douse the lot with green sauce. Why the whinge? Due to the scattered layout, the sauce was distributed quite poorly leaving the dish quite dry at the end. =/!
Architect & Heroes is a promising cafe with heaps of potential left to tap. Just not that morning whilst I was there. As is, a little boring. But with more attention to detail, and some TLC amongst the elements on the plate, this suburban eatery can propel itself to heroic proportions. But its ok, most heroes never looked cool in their first costume anyway! Better luck next time :P!
