Bitton Gourmet Cafe, Alexandria

We were close to Alexandria that same day and I've heard a lot about Bitton so we decided to head off there. Hey she was driving after all. Which is good because I can't be trusted with directions at all. My friends all know this sadly...

It's quite cosy and chill inside and we're instantly greeted by a lively waiter and seated immediately. It was late afternoon and I hear this place usually packs out. It's stocked to the brim with Bitton's products, from their jams to fresh baked goods.

Homemade Spicy Chicken and Leek Pie with Tomato Sauce and Green Salad 17
Their pies were just disappointing. Everything you'd expect from a pie just wasn't there except the pastry which was decent. The filling was god awfully dry, leeks were shredded up to finely to be existent, there was no gravy present and it was just really hard to eat.  

Sour Cherry French Toast with Roasted Banana and Pear and Cinnamon Ricotta 14
Now on to the good stuff. There pretty much everything good that can go on a breakfast place that goes on here. Bananas, soft raspberry brioche, ricotta drizzled with maple syrup. After a while the textures get a little too homogeneous and you don't know what's what. Maybe a little contrast thrown in and it would be perfect.

Caramel Milkshake 5
Bitton's milkshakes there are much cheaper than what you'd get elsewhere which is GREAT. I'm seeing other places do flipping 8-9 dollar milkshakes for like what... milk?!?! I'm always a sucker for milkshakes regardless and these were good. The caramel flavour is a bit on the light side but their texture is spot on, thick and viscous but slurpable and utterly delicious.

Juice 5
The juice there's fresh. You can combo it up (for a 0.5 surcharge) like we did and pair fruits with fruits and they'll be happy to oblige.

Bitton's okay. Their prices, for the most part, are pretty standard. It's a really nice location and their staff are super but their food's got loads to improve on. It's enjoyable but it's hard to justify coming back.

i've never ordered french toast because I always assume it's just way too indulgent. But i think i want to try it..

A shame about the pies but the French toast sounds promising. And I agree about the price of milkshakes - often they're the same price as your lunch! lol

Dear Neil,

I heard their signature baked egg brekky is supposed to be good, but then again, I prefer my bacon and eggs with just a couple of slices of toast.

No, we aren't the most amazing gastronomes or chefs. Heck, half our team doesn't even know how to cook... well. However, what we really love is eating. And lots of it. We enjoy that occasional freebie, filling up that craving for a midnight snack and finding a 20 in our pockets that we thought we never had, and using that as an excuse to go out eating. As we battle the ongoing war on uni student poverty, we'll bring you the most swoon worthy recounts of our latest foodie adventures.
