Close to home. Er, work.

We have a little guilty pleasure, at work. Downstairs from our office is our regular coffee haunt, the large food-hall style cafe Hydra.

Every morning at 7:30am, Nick and Sam would cheerily serve very good coffee with a smile and a twenty word download of the night before. Occasionally, we are enticed to eat breakfast or lunch, and rarely are we disappointed.

On this occasion (the end of December), we (WP and I) decided to stop in for a working breakfast. We were celebrating some small victory, and we decided to splash out on the chef's brekky special. Huevos Rancheros.

Avacado, jalapenos, refried beans, salsa, sour cream, a tortilla, and eggs poached just SO, it was such a surprise I instantly decided to make it my post for the week.

Perhaps it was also the sense of victory, or the comfort of home, but it so far ranks very highly in my estimations of breakfast venues in Melbourne. The great irony however, is that the chef hates cooking it so much he's now taken it off the menu!

He may make it for you, if you ask very nicely, but just make sure you don't tell him I said it was ok.

7/10 + .5 for my personal bias :)
