crushed peas and the search for melbourne's best brunch

I had some time over the weekend to enjoy the company of my husband. We've recently decided to make it our mission to visit all of the Melbourne cafes featured in The Age's recent "Coffee Army Handbook". Our first stop: Three Bags Full in Abbotsford.  Whilst I'm no expert when it comes to coffee (quite frankly I can't stand the taste of it), I am quietly confident that these coffee hotspots around town will also serve a mean brunch. I was excited to try their peas and eggs dish and it didn't disappoint with sweet crushed peas, perfectly poached eggs, a tangy tomato vinaigrette and crumbly feta. I felt comfortably full but not roll-me-out-of-here full and washed it down with a refreshing watermelon, strawberry, apple and mint juice. I won't deny that the sweet tooth in me felt a little food envy for Ben's incredible twice baked french toast with creme patisserie, rhubarb and almonds. It was a taste sensation but let's be honest, it's really a dessert more than a breakfast dish! I have it on good authority that the coffee was excellent too as Ben had 2 (or was it 3?!) as I sat sipping a chamomile tea. All up my meal was $24.00, not bad for a satisfying, slow Saturday morning.
