Cafe FresQ, Port Douglas

All right, the third day of our visit at Port Douglas and I continue the search for the best breakfast. Something different, something flavoursome. Something different from the regular stuff. And here we were at Café FresQ. Early in the morning, again, regular café and seems quite popular. It was so full to my surprise.
We settled in on a cool cloudy morning, to start off with a cup of coffee and looked into the menu.

Well, to begin with, the coffee was great. A good start! The menu, while it had its share of the regular stuff like eggs benedicts, toasts, museli, pancakes, what caught me was the Bills Full Irish. It had the black and white pudding, scrambled eggs, bacon, mushrooms, pork chipolatas. It was quite a lot of breakfast to be honest. I mean, all this much food, along with a potato rosti, grilled tomato. Just too much food. 

Well, again, to be honest, the food was descent, regular brekkie fare. Herb mushrooms, grilled tomato, scrambled eggs. All freshly made. A part of me always wishes for something new and something piping hot, even if it’s the eggs. A normal issue I face in most Aussie breakfast places- the scrambled is cold and pre made. Anyways for the part  of me craving something new, it was the black and white pudding.  Now I didn’t know what it was initially, but turns out to be blood sausages with pork blood in the black pudding. Well, hearing about it did make it weird for me, and then I did taste it. To be honest, it was herby, flavored and a bit gritty. All in all, it was okay, nice to have tried something new, but probably something I didn’t relish too much. The potato rosti was good, crispy, fried. Along with the whole brekkie deal was the mug barry’s tea. A whole big cup of tea.

The other thing we tried out over here, was the corn and zucchini fritters. Good, fresh fitters and quite delicious. Liked the presentation, they had a grey plate with green spinach leaves as the bed, corn fritter on top stacked up and topped with a beautiful, colorful and vibrant tomato salsa and a green fresh pesto. They had avocado and whipped feta as these cute little circular snail shell like drops.  Along side came a fresh tomato and chilli relish, which just completed the circle of taste. All in all, I loved this one, it had great flavors, colors and the kind of thing I want in my brekkie.
All in all, this is quite a good and favorite spot amongst the tourists.  Diagonally opposite is the Port Douglas visitor center. It’s a good spot to sit down and relax over the day or early in the morning, as you have relaxed breakfast reading you local newspaper.
