Fledgling Espresso is owned by Connor Cunliffe, 23 years old. Yes, only 23 years old. We all envy his success in such as young age but we all can't forget his food. Connor's mom also involve in this project, admin part but also help with the menu. It gives the places homey feeling. The place it self is small and cramped but it does not stop people for lining up on a Saturday morning.

Mushroom Medley - garlic, herbs, poached egg, sourdough ($18.5) and Mashed Pumpkin - sweet potato, haloumi, beetroot yoghurt, herbs, dukkha, pomegranate, poached egg, multigrain ($18.5). I don't normally order vegetarian dish, seriously, I'm a meat eater. But this two dish looked so good that I can't help my self and I make the right choice. The mushroom dish was good but not the most amazing mushroom dish ever. But that mashed pumpkin stole the thunder, sweet creamy with freshness from the pomegranate, cheesy haloumi, just worked so nicely together.

Eggs Benny - hollandaise, pulled pork, english muffin ($17.5) and Chilli Scrambled Eggs - bacon, fried shallot, tomato, parsley, parmesan, sourdough ($18.5). Honestly, the pulled pork was a bit dry and blend even though the hollandaise and english muffin was pretty good. I honestly prefer the melt in your mouth scrambled eggs with small salty pieces of fried shallot. Yum!

Ended with something sweet; Banana French Toast - berry compote, pictachio praline, salted caramel, mascarpone, fairy floss ($19). Fluffy, crumbly moist banana bread with classic combination that always works. What's not to like?
