Pig and the Pastry- Petersham.

Yes, i am blogging about another cafe. No, i will never get sick of visiting cafes, especially ones with cute names like Pig and the Pastry, namely because they make up some of my favourite foods (or food groups... bacon should be a food group of its own!) , how can you go wrong really? 

Pig and the Pastry is still a fairly new cafe that opened up mid last year, with such a cute name it is hard to resist the beckoning calls to visit it right? Pig and the Pastry is definitely my type of cafe, its a quaint little hideaway from the chaotic streets (Parramatta Rd!! eeep!). It emits a cosy homey feel and reminds me of the leisurely time of chilling on the porch and relaxing with a good book and iced tea.  ahhh bliss! (FYI been a while since i've done that.....)

I really like how fresh and alive the place felt, the natural light flooding in ! 

poached eggs with smoked streaky bacon roasted tomatoe and field musrooms on sourdough

It was winter and the weather was freezing cold, so i opt for a tummy filler of poached eggs. I love eggs and when they come with mushrooms there i no reason why i wouldn't order it. The only thing i really wanted was some greens, maybe some wilted spinach...? then i would've gone to breakfast  heaven!

Oooze egg ooze!

lovely flowers adorn each table and around the cafe.
a lovely touch! 

 love natural light nd the airy atmosphere.

 I think exposed brick walls was a trend last year, i quite like it. (p.s. Brickfields and Brewtown Newtown also has it!)

Pig and pastry's winter porridge with dried fruits and mixed seeds

My friend orders the winter porridge and i stole a spoonful or research purposes :P. The porridge is subtly sweet and aromatic, they were also really generous with the dried fruits, my spoonful was choc a block full! 

soy chai latte

Flavour wise it was good, but nothing s as good as loose leaf chai. #spoilt. 

Outdoor seating is also available but it was freezing when i went ( so much blogging backlog!) so we opted for the warm indoor cosiness.

Their menu changes depending whats in season but i did spy salted caramel milkshake on the menu, hopefully they don't change that as i will definitely will be back for that! Rumour also has it that their burger is amazing, so that's been added to my list!

Stay awesome guys, till next time!

  4. Who doesn't like eggporn........that should be it's own category :)

    The porridge looks great, not something I'd order out which I'm sure I'd be pleasantly surprised. But.......can't get past poached egg with the goooooooooey inner.
