It happened like this.
I went to an Arts Expo dinner at the Saltwater Cafe & Bar a week ago Tuesday. (More on the Expo here, here, and here.) On Friday I had coffee with foodie Nancy, and told her about Saltwater's chocolate tart, which she hadn't had; she asked me if I'd had breakfast there, and I hadn't. So on Saturday, Ben & I went to research breakfast, (oh, the things we do for DP), except when the food arrived, I got a bit too preoccupied, and even though I had the camera out on the table, I neglected my duties. So what do you do as a responsible DPer? We went back yesterday, and this time Ben reminded me about the camera. Phew.
Arguably one of the best breakfast places in town and the prices are reasonable. But it is known for the seafood, so we'll have to go back, again, sooner or later. Their chocolate tart is probably one of the best deserts I've ever had in Nelson; you have been warned.
Ben had Big kiwi breakfast with bacon, sausage, slow roasted tomatoes, toasted sour dough and eggs - poached, fried or scrambled; I had Toasted brioche with grilled banana, bacon and maple syrup. Now, the brioche I bake are heavier and cakier; I don't know if it's the toasting that does it, but theirs is airy and lighter. I must try slicing and toasting my brioche the next time I make some.
