This place has been on my list for a while now, every time I walk past it is busy! My friends and I made the most of the Labour Day holiday and decided on a little brunch date.
We were lucky to get a table almost straight away, we sat outside which was nice and enjoyed the Spring weather. Two of us opted for the Breakfast Bruschetta (Goats cheese, almonds, cherry tomatoes, smashed avocado basil oil and wholegrain toast with a poached egg) and my other friend ordered the Ampersand Envy (Poached eggs with baby spinach fresh avocado & our special basil feta sauce). The Breakfast Bruschetta was actually really delicious. I normally whip up something similar at home and wondered how it would compare considering they charged $19! The portion was a great size, the produce was fresh and the flavours complimented each other. The poached egg was perfect.
Ampersand on Crown also doubles as a bookstore which adds great character and is also open for lunch, dinner and is fully licensed.
