Getting your health fix doesn't have to stop just because you're on holidays. Spoonbill have just topped up their breakfast menu with superfoods and sneaky health boosters throughout, so you can enjoy a breakfast that's both photo-worthy and easy on your conscience.
If you know much about the Melbourne dining scene, it’s that Melburnians are bananas about their breakfast and brunch choices. In fact, it’s almost blasphemy to proclaim you ‘don’t eat breakfast’ around our town, when many of the city’s buzziest spots to grab a bite are centered around that first meal of the day.
We’re no different; The Blackman’s Fleur Depot De Pain gets a whole lot of love for its fresh pastries and crunchy French Toast, whilst over at The Cullen you’re in for a fierce feast with burgers, benedicts and Bloody Mary’s on offer at Gramercy. Spoonbill at The Olsen has always been different again, concentrating on locally-sourced fare with hearty ingredients. One thing’s for sure: we’re serious about providing a brekkie that’s more than vegemite toast (although you can have that, too).
It’s not just the indulgence factor. We love our indulgent breakfasts (and when travelling, the ‘eat what you want’ diet is certainly on the cards) but it’s also about packing some good stuff in, not just maple syrup and fried food. With Spoonbill’s existing focus on unpretentious, fresh eating options, it was just right for introducing some new healthy options to the table. Blending old favourites with nutritious ingredients, we’ve debuted a new menu for the breakfast flock who want to indulge without the guilt factor.
Get your fresh fix with house-made vegie and fruit juices or our smoothie selection, or satisfy a sweet tooth with two kinds of hose-made bircher muesli – both come with a delicious dollop of CoYo coconut yoghurt.
Or fill up with our ‘Get Your Greens’ plate; baby spinach, snowpea tendrils, asparagus, green tomato and feta with a poached egg on toast. Traditionalists needn’t get worried either; brekky staples like eggs on toast, omelettes and coffee are all there too, with plenty of fresh vegies to pile up on the side.
Finish up with a coffee – or a coconut water, we’ve got either fix covered.
Scout the new menu out now here or swing by to taste-test yourself. For the lucky ducks in-house, all the new menu options will be included in the room service menu at The Olsen.
