Union Kitchen at Mindarie is so dog friendly they have a special menu for our furred friends – puppacino, muttshake, cheezi katz, banana paws or woofz anyone? They even have dog beds so your hound can catch up on a spot of shut-eye while you enjoy your breakfast.
And enjoy your breakfast you will –among other dishes, the menu offers eggs all ways, with a variety of sides; fruit salad bowl; a breakfast burger with bacon, eggs, hash browns and HP sauce; croissant with bacon, tomato and scrambled eggs; and pumpkin, leek and feta fritters.
Their Big Breakfast lives up to its name – bacon, pork snags, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, a couple of eggs cooked to your order along with toasted crusty bread – enough for two I think, and it was a struggle to get through it. But all well-cooked – the bacon with a nice crisp, the sausages juicy and succulent, well poached eggs, and the beans particularly tasty.
Our other choice – a large, fluffy oven baked Spanish omelette filled with capsicum, ham and potato, came with wilted spinach, roasted tomato and chorizo – and with a side of the excellent bacon again was enough for a small army.
With well-turned out coffee – a latté and a cappuccino – and exceptionally attractive views of the ocean, this is a very appealing breakfast and coffee and cake spot – and the number of dogs in attendance speaks to its popularity among that segment of the population (and their owners of course!) too.
