Bossy Boots is one of the locals favourite in Brighton area. Just recently renovated to a fresher and much modern look has once again became the popular cafe on the area. They have 5 chefs with various background working on their breakfast, lunch and take away menu. Everything was made in the premises and made from scratch with the freshest ingredients available. Chefs Ben Forehan, Rachel Browne and Nonna Thomasina are part of the team that highly appreciates high quality take home food for families or students or simply tired workers who want to eat hearty food but have no energy left to cook.

I was invited by The World Loves Melbourne to attend one of their blogger event at Bossy Boots Cafe. It was on a Saturday morning, perfect day for brunch. The cafe was busy and full of people even though it's still pretty early. Decorated with blonde wood furnitures and have an options of alfresco, courtyard or inside dining.

I started my breakfast with a cup of coffee, it was fluffy, smooth and have a strong coffee taste. They also served chai latte, fresh juices and smoothies.

Two of my friend ordered the Mixed Bean & Ham Hock Ragout with a fried egg on toast ($17.5). I get to try a bit of their dish and it was pretty decent. The mixed bean was tasty but the ham hock ragout seems a little bit lost in the dish.

My partner opted for something heavier, he decided on Traditional Lasagna served with tossed green salad ($19.5). When it first arrived I thought it's pretty thin compared to the regular portions of lasagna but I was wrong. It was pretty filling and the flavour has a good balanced between creamy, cheesy and the tastiness from the beef.

Special of the day; Corn Fritters w/ avocado salsa, tomato relish, sour cream and crispy bacon ($18.5). It's not a secret I love corn fritters. The crispy golden fritter was juicy with sweetness from the corn and super crispy bacon. Yum! 

Special of the day; Buttermilk pancakes w/ strawberries, ice cream & maple syrup ($15). The pancake portions was smaller than what we expected. The flavour and combination was traditional unlike most cafe these days.

Some other bloggers ordered the Bruschetta and Porridge as well and they look delicious even though I did not get any chances to try it.

The service was friendly and the food comes in a well mannered pace. Overall, it's a goof homestyle food with nice setting and reasonable prices. They also held a spontaneous competition for the best picture uploaded on the event and surprisingly I won and got their wonderful pie and lasagna to take home to my family.
