Mad Spud Cafe, Surry Hills, Sydney

Guest blogger edition

Bored of our usual breakfast joints, we decided to venture out and try something different. Didn't want to have to wait too long for a table but also wanted some place that had good coffee and decent food, a quick google search lead us to Mad Spud Cafe.

Located right on Crown street, this cafe is easy to fund and luckily we managed to snag a parking spot literally on their doorstep. There's indoor and outdoor seating but we opted to sit indoors.

Mad Pan brekkie - $16 - Boston beans, 2 spiced pork sausages, hash browns, poached egg, roast onion. Both our breakfast dishes were pretty full on. The beans and the poached egg were the standouts in this dish, both pairing beautifully with the slices of toast.

English breakfast - $18 - pork sausage, crispy spud skins, crispy bacon, grilled tomato, baked beans, 2 fried eggs, toast. The more standard of the two dishes. This one had more variety with the highlight being the spud skins (duh!). This is no surprise given the place is called 'mad spuds'. The skins were crispy on the outside but soft and waxy on the inside. Sprinkled lightly with salt, I could have had a whole bowl of these. Perfect beer snack me thinks!

Whilst we were there, we saw people ordering the spuds off the other section of the menu for breakfast so it seems that you aren't limited to the 'breakfast' menu. Next we definitely will focus on the spuds side of the menu!
