Artie & Mai | 340 Sandgate Road, ALBION QLD 4010

A few weeks ago the bunnie family made a quick stopover at Artie & Mai to have breakfast before heading to a 1st birthday party. We picked Artie & Mai because for a while there, my instagram was bombarded with alluring food photos from this cafe.

Artie & Mai occupies the space that once was Stockholm Syndrome which we visited back in 2012, for breakfast as well. From memory the breakfast surpassed our expectation and I had high hopes for Artie & Mai.

We started off with a lemon iced tea and a freshly squeezed juice, both were yummy. Unfortunately the breakfast dishes failed to impress us. I really liked the sound of the banana french toast w' salted caramel, tomato jam, candied bacon ice-cream ($17) and as for the other travel bunnie, he decided to have something savoury and ordered the sautéed mushrooms, poached egg, pecorino, truffle oil on sourdough($17). While the mushroom dish had a nice rustic touch, the banana french toast looked uninspiring and the clamps of icing sugar certainly didn't help. The french toast tasted overly sweet and it was rather disappointing that I couldn't taste any saltiness in the rich caramel sauce. Half way through the meal, the other travel bunnie was kind enough to swap his dish with mine. I was definitely grateful for the gesture as the mushrooms were delicious.

Despite the fact that we would like to return to Artie & Mai to try out their dinner before we completely cross it out of our list, I can't see us going back there any time soon.

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $45.00
