My Mistress Cafe, Clayfield

Bubby HATES his carseat. Nine times out of ten, he will scream bloody blue murder every time he is placed in it and until he is removed from it. It is incredibly stressful, so it takes an extra special errand or occasion for us to hop in the car these days.

Needing to sew some suck pads for the TULA definitely accounts for an extra special errand, so we headed into Spotlight in Everton Park for supplies and needed to refuel our stomaches. Unfortunately the options at Spotlight were scarce. I had heard so much about My Mistress and it wasn’t too far away, so I suggested to the SO we head there for an early lunch while Bubby was cooperative.

The weather was deliciously warm and we found a convenient outdoor table under a little bit of shade. Armed with refreshing cool water, the SO ordered an organic cola while we studied the menu. Service was reasonably quick, despite the brisk business – a plus when you’re hungry and struggling with a wriggly baby still too small for a high chair.

My Mistress offered quite the variety of options, ranging from Middle Eastern fruit load with ricotta and house made compote (AUD$7), to a super hearty Head Mistress of free range baked egg with house made spiced beans, chorizo, sour cream and cheesy bread (AUD$18).

Instead we fell in love with the sublime Eggs Monica, a menu favourite by all Instagram accounts, and the Morning Glory. Well, what can you expect with all the golden magma of yolk porn? The only disappointment we had was the corn, zucchini and haloumi fritters in the Eggs Monica were still a little undercooked in the centre, even though it had really rich crisp edges.

My Mistress Cafe: Eggs Monica: corn, zucchini and haloumi fritters with blistered cherry tomatoes, a haloumi slab, seasoned avocado smash and a fresh range fried egg. AUD$18
