Cafe Fidama

On Sunday, I caught up with friends from northern New South Wales. They were down in Melbourne for a few days, so we went out to lunch at Café Fidama in Ballarat Street, Yarraville. We had a whale of a time.

I have to put in a word for Fidama's delicious lemon tart. The rest of their food is great (including the licorice affogato) but their lemon tart is something else. If only they served breakfasts during the week, this would be my new favourite.

Ooh, yes, we often have our writing group Christmas lunch there. Great ambience.

Have you tried their breakfasts? I haven't yet but it's on my list.

No, I'm not a morning person really. I can count the times I've been out for breakfast on one hand. Well, apart from the odd-foray into Macca's (don't tell anyone I'm admitting to that!) when on holidays. I suppose usually I'm trying to get kids out of bed and off somewhere, so I don't have the time, or am too stressed.

Funny thing that, I just happen to have a couple of photos of the fabulous food they serve at Fidama!

Mmmmmm.... I can vouch for Fidama's delicious lemon tart being not of this earth. *makes a yummy sound*

Tracey, I'm very fond of places that do all-day breakfasts. The Gravy Train in Gamon Street, Seddon is one. I think Java in Yarraville (next to the Sun Theatre) also does extended breakfasts. And may I recommend their bangers and mash. Not exactly Pritikin but absolutely delicious.

Well, look at that! A couple of yummy dishes from Cafe Fidama in glorious colour. Now my stomach's rumbling. Thanks, Taps.
