Mortadella and cheese muffins or a heart-stopping hash brown and bacon brekkie burger are worth tracking down at any time of the day. But if you desperately need one first thing, Mary's CBD has you covered from next week, dropping a new breakfast menu for those keen (or dusty) enough to get into the good stuff before 10am.
No judgment against a sunrise sweet-tooth either. Along with the burger — which has maple syrup on it — and three $10 brekkie muffins, Mary's is also serving up hot cakes with whipped butter, porridge and fruit, crumpets, scones, banana bread and Jamaican ginger cake. Adding bacon to everything is a confirmed option.
Of course, there'll be coffee, with Newtown's Loggerhead Coffee Co. supplying espresso or filter and bottled cold brews in lieu of the bar's usual beers. Owner Jake Smyth calls the Loggerhead crew "family", and says the partnership brings another "slice of Newtown" to the CBD. The Castlereigh Street outlet is also getting a bit of a revamp — it now features a Lemmy Kilmister 'shrine' for the early morning rock legend, new custom benches and extra seating if you need a bit of space to come to terms with the AM.
The breakfast menu will be available from Monday, July 10 from 6.30–10am, Monday to Friday, with coffee served until 2pm daily.
Mary's CBD is located at 154 Castlereagh Street, Sydney. For more info, visit their Facebook page.
