St Jude, Redfern ♥♥

Sunday, April 12, 2015

Skip the busy strip of Surry Hills and look for this corner cafe that borderlines Redfern. Understated from the outside, you'll be hypnotised by its charm and allure inside and satisfied with the good honest house made food and drinks.

After three years on the brunch scene you can still expect weekend queues - a sure sign of it's popularity. The breakfast menu is all day, everyday. The one page menu starts with eggs your way on toast ($10.50) where you can add sides or you can choose from the seasonal options or the regulars that includes pumpkin and corn fritters, eggs benedicts, smashed avocado and french toast. 

Omelette and toast $17
All omelettes should look like this - fluffy, fat and cheesy. When I ordered the omelette it was filled with smoked salmon, feta and tomato. Nice combination and it was very well seasoned. Don't forget their house made tomato relish, it's delicious.

Eggs gypsy smoked ham bennie $17
The eggs benedict - I have to say it's amongst one of the best in Sydney. The hollandaise was tasty and this version had a thick slice of gypsy smoked ham which added a delicious depth of flavour. You can also get smoked salmon or spinach instead of the smoked ham.

Pumpkin and sweet corn fritters $16
The pumpkin and sweet corn fritters have been on their menu since day one and there's a reason why. It must be their secret recipe because it rivals Bills famous corn fritters and to top it off, there's a poached egg and that hollandaise sauce.

Iced coffee $5
St Jude has specialty drinks that are made in house which are a treat. I love the refreshing house made ginger beer ($4.50) that comes with a slice of cucumber and lemon. Iced coffee ($5.00) are perfect on a hot summer's day and the strong aroma of the coffee is ready to knock any coffee addict's socks off.

Moroccan mint hot tea $4.50
The hot teas are the real deal made on the spot. The Morrocan mint tea arrives super hot in a tall glass. It smells amazing as the hot sugary (honey?) mix is infused with a cinnamon stick, star anise, mint and a slice of lemon.

If the food doesn't entice you, the house made drinks will or just the coffee and treats. If not, don't let those creepy knick knack collection of religious artifacts and dolls on the top shelf scare you away :).
