it’s tuesday morning.

my friend and are I feeling indecisive about what we want for breakfast. we don’t feel like fat food yet we arn’t feeling like quinoa and salad. on a mission to find ourselves the perfect brekky we stumble across this little beauty on the end of king william road. Pollen 185.


I have seen photos of their food all over my instagram and read some reviews about how banging their coffee is and now I know why. Pollen 185 is hidden away on king william, lined with white subway tiles and a long wooden table housing the most beautiful bunch of kale flowers.


we were greeted with a massive smile and a coffee (which can I add was delicious) and took a seat next to the kitchen. We chatted away to the beautiful soul who worked in the kitchen and decided on minty smashed avo and baked eggs to curb our hunger cravings. We sat and we chatted whilst waiting for our food while we listened to her chat to a couple of older ladies about her food. It was so refreshing to meet someone so enthusiastic about their food, and you could really tell that she took pride and had passion in what she did. And it showed when we got our food, because it was incredible.

The smashed avo was topped with cashew cheese, basil & cumquat oil with beetroot dirt on sourdough. The bread had just the right amount of crunch, the cashew cheese was smooth and like nothing I ever tasted before and the cheeky cumquat on the side, talk about a flavour explosion.

I stole a sneaky taste of my friends baked eggs and they were equally as good. It was heart warming, with all the flavours of India with a hint of spice. The eggs were cooked well and there was a decent serving of bread on the side so you could dunk your heart out.


If you miss brekky they also have a equally impressive lunch menu to and some super fancy home made goodies to go with your coffee- think bliss balls and upside down cake.

go and visit these beauties, you wont regret it. and even better, the feed here is pretty damn good for you!
