Three Bags Full

On a cool summer morning in the hipster suburb of Fitzroy, in between open for inspections, Dani and I made our first trip to Three Bags Full. Having heard only good things about it for the last 2 years our expectations were high to say the least. We arrived at 10am and were greeted by a line running half the length of the block, which of course is to be expected at any reputable café at 10am on a Saturday morning. As we stood in line I took the opportunity to do a little people watching, doctor types in an array of brightly coloured lycra gear sat next to tv stars from mildly successful Australian sit-coms; while Land Rovers lined the streets, the occupants of which sent the queue all most the entire length of the block. Once upon a time it was rare to see the Toorak Tractor so far North of the Yarra, but times certainly have changed. After 20 minutes we were seated the waitress took our drinks order and left us to pour over the menu. I was tossing up between the Smoked Trout Omlette, which is considered by Three Bags Full to be vegetarian— not sure how that works— and the Twice Baked French Toast. I decide to go with the French toast, while Dani went for the Atlantic Eggs on Toast. Even though it was wolfed down in about 10 seconds as we rushed off to our next inspection it was a bloody good feed. The toast was thick and soft, while the rhubarb and mascarpone were a beautiful combination that was neither to sweet nor to heavy. Dani was a fan of her Atlantic Eggs, the salmon and softly poached eggs looked delicious! After our meal we headed inside to pay and our waitress had arranged two take away coffees on the house for us as our order had taken rather a long time to come out! It’s gestures like that, that separate the good from the great and Three Bags Full is certainly one of the greats.
