Bills Darlinghurst

433 Liverpool Street, Darlinghurst 2010
P: 02 9360 9631

Somewhere I've wanted to go for breakfast for, wow, as long as I can remember, is Bills. Any Bills. So long as I get me some famous hotcakes. My trip to Sydney (damn, a month ago now, I really need to blog more regularly) gave me the perfect opportunity. Although I've heard mixed reviews, I wasn't disappointed!

I was staying with R & M, and Bills Darlinghurst is just a pleasant Sunday morning stroll from their front door... lucky buggers. I may have to visit again... hahahahahahaha relax guys, just kidding!

Once we got to Bills and I saw the menu the first thing I noticed was that breakfast is served all day. I love this, especially for a lazy weekend. Places that cut off your breakfast after 11am are just cruel :-)

So, while I held fast to my hotcakes craving, J and R both ordered the sweet corn fritters. I had a little taste. Next time, I am SOOOO going these babies. Sweet corn, savoury fritter, crunchy yumminess. So incredibly good

M had the scrambled eggs, and these looked pretty damn good too. He reported success.

And these were my hotcakes. Thick, fluffy, delicious... especially when I slathered maple syrup all over them. If anything, they were too much of a good thing: I put up a good fight, but just couldn't finish the plate. I also had the sunrise drink... I was sure I'd taken a picture of this... anyway, it was nearly a meal on its own!

Bills don't take bookings for breakfast, so do yourself a favour and turn up either early, or late! Around 10am the place gets very, uh, cosy.

I'm so glad I went. I'm so glad it lived up to my expectations.

Uh-huh!! You shoulda tasted 'em. That's my breakfast next time, for sure.

All three dishes look wonderful!! I tend to pig out a bit when there's lots of tasty food around (Festivale, anyone?), but I still enjoy it all the same and savour every bite... Mmmm... Drooling just thinking about those fritters...
