Tammy is back in Sydney for a month, she’s been up in Darwin for the past few months spending time with the indigenous community and providing them with legal aid. Tammy’s back for her admission as a lawyer as well as attend a couple of weddings. I enjoy spending time with Tammy and I am always encouraged by her passion for the marginalised which is characterised by her love for Christ.
We were initially going to catch up at a cafe closer to Tammy’s home, but they were closed so we decided to go to Beecroft to see what was open. After parking the car, we walked past a store called Chicken & Fishhead with kids clothing displayed on its shop front, we peeked in and noticed that the kidswear store also had a tiny cafe that served breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The warm red walls, chandeliers and other simple decor created a happy and quirky feel to the small cafe that only has five or six tables. As it was around 11am, I decided to order from the lunch menu whereas Tammy ordered from the breakfast menu.
- Big Breakfast – bacon, poached eggs, grilled tomato, grilled mushrooms, spinach, toasted sourdough bread ($18)
- Pumpkin Ravioli – with roasted pumpkin, sage, burnt butter, pine nuts and shaved parmesan cheese ($22)
- Cafe Latte ($3.50 Regular)
I loved every bite of my Pumpkin Ravioli, the dish was full of flavour and the ingredients worked well together. The roasted pumpkin was seasoned and roasted well and as a big fan of pine nuts, I was glad that they gave me a large handful of it.
Tammy was also satisfied with her Big Breakfast, the portion was big enough that she wasn’t able to finish her food.
Chicken & Fishhead is opposite Beecroft train station, so it’s easy to get to if you don’t have a car. I will definitely come back for lunch, a cup of coffee or just to browse around their cute little shop.
