Early morning in King St is pretty quiet but step into Uncle Joe’s and you’ll found a hubbub of activity. The street front houses a barber shop but continuing further up the cobbled stone laneway it opens into an industrial styled cafe. The relaxed vibe extends to patrons who have time to read the morning paper over their breakfast.
The breakfast menu is short and simple, plus there’s a selection of baked goods on offer along the main counter. We place our order and wander to the rear courtyard atrium. It’s a little fresh this morning and we keep our coats on, although there are several heaters dotted around the place.
Warm coffees arrived quickly at our table and soon after our meals followed. The Tradie Sanga $10.50, a stack of smoked bacon, fried egg, spinach and home-made bbq relish on toasted bread. I really liked the relish and the flavour combinations worked well.
The perfectly round Omlette $14, with ham, red onion, spinach, cream cheese and toasted ciabatta, was a great brekkie filler.
Uncle Joe’s is a great place to chill away from the office or for that gossipy catch-up with friends.
