Breakfast - Ripples at Chowder Bay

We took advantage of the nice morning weather and headed for an outdoor breakfast. Our destination was Ripples at Chowder Bay, Mosman.

We arrive around 9:30am and the outdoor section was almost full; we grabbed one of the last tables available.



The waitress promptly bought us glasses of water (a tick for service, although it should be a given at any restaurant) and we placed our drinks order. A skinny cappuccino for me and an orange juice for Mr Curious.

The cappuccino (Karmee coffee, $3.80) was strong but smooth. The orange juice was disappointing though, it came in a 330ml glass with lots of ice, it wasn’t freshly squeezed and the price was $5.50.

A few reviews at eatability said that the service is a bit slow, and it proved to be the case this morning. I don’t think it is the fault of the wait staff, it just took the kitchen a long time to prepare the dishes. We waited about ½ hour for our food order.

I resisted the temptation of a hot breakfast and ordered a Ripples toasted muesli with poached pear and yoghurt ($10).



The muesli was a good mixture of grain, fruit (apricot, figs etc) and nuts. The pear was nicely poached and not too sweet. I would have preferred an extra dollop of yoghurt but that’s a personal preference as I like the muesli moist. The waitress gave me a small jug of milk to pour into the muesli but I needed another one to finish the muesli.

Mr Curious ordered a ham, smoked mozzarella & roasted cherry tomato omelette ($15).



Mr Curious gave me a bite and it was one of the better omelettes I’ve had. The outside was almost crispy and the inside was moist and runny. I don’t usually like cheese in my omelette but the mozzarella was not overpowering and complemented the rest of the omelette.

The view over Chowder Bay is lovely – perfect for a day like today.



Overall it was an enjoyable breakfast. We are trying to find a location to celebrate The Little Guy’s first birthday and this is a good candidate, as there is a large playground at Clifton Gardens nearby where we can go after lunch. The long wait for food is a concern – I wonder if we can pre-order and request for the food to come as soon as we arrive?
