Sunday brunch at Poachers Pantry

Sunday 4 May this year is known for two things. It’s Star Wars day (May the 4th be with you) and the Collector Pumpkin Festival. The weather wasn’t that conducive to being outside looking at pumpkins so Bron and I elected to enjoy brunch at Poachers Pantry. We’ve been here before and enjoyed it. It was time to visit again.

We had a reservation for 10 am and arrived a little too early. Even though it was a really fresh morning with a bit of wind we went for a walk to further whet our appetites.

Bron asked for the Shakshuka baked eggs with sweet peppers, tomato, spinach, creamed fetta and toast and I asked for the Poacher’s Farmhouse Breakfast – fried eggs, ham steak, black pudding, crispy potatoes, button mushrooms, tomato relish and toast.

Bron loved her eggs and I was equally impressed with my dish. The tomato relish was very spicy and packed a punch. I asked if it was possible to buy the relish and unfortunately it’s not. In the end I chose an alternative take home.

The coffees we asked for were full of flavour and the special sugar (which you can see in a glass jar in the image above) complemented the flavour of the coffee. The service is warm, friendly and very helpful. Bron noticed on the black board that they had wasabi chocolate macarons (I bought her a bottle of smoky barbecue sauce instead because Bron makes amazing pulled pork). We’d recommend Poachers Pantry for a weekend brunch.

  1. Looks delicious Gary, thanks for sharing! I’ve been to Poachers Pantry before and we enjoyed our meal very much, found the service to be particularly friendly. However it is a bit pricey (like many restaurants that are good in Canberra) so it’s an intermittent treat for us! How much was the Sunday Brunch all up?

    • It wasn’t cheap that’s true. The farm house breakfast is $23 and the baked eggs are $20. We each had two coffees each and the relish set me back about $12.

  2. I love the Willabrand products! Great post, Gary, delicious.

    • Thanks Liz. It’s a pity the actual tomato relish from the dish wasn’t for sale. It was amazing especially with the black pudding.
