Aix Cafe Creperie Salon, Melbourne CBD by Snooze

If breakfast is your meal of choice and crepes your weakness ... go early and linger at the Aix Cafe Creperie Salon in Centre Place.


With a full day's schedule planned in town, I met up with Big Fil and his brother Hungry Pete for a hearty breakfast before setting out. It turned out to be a very early breakfast at 7.15am, with almost nobody in sight.


The crepe of choice for the day was sweet with Big Fil plumping for the mixed berry crepe with rosewater yoghurt, and chocolate and hazelnut for Hungry Pete.

The mixed berry crepe was very well presented and the crepe itself was nice. Unfortunately, the berries were a little lacking in flavour.

The chocolate crepe was good, well presented and flavoured. Unlike some chocolate crepes it wasn't overly sweet, with the chocolate adding a nice touch of bitterness.

By contrast I chose the more traditional breakfast: two eggs sunny side up and bacon served on sour dough bread. Everything was cooked exactly as I like it: the white was cooked and the yolks runny, the bacon was slightly smoked and crispy without being burnt, and the bread lightly toasted and without butter or margarine.


Our drinks were equally good: mandarin juice for me (which I've never had before), and tea and coffee. All served slightly before our food and still hot enough to enjoy as we ate.


I'd definitely go again.

Overall
Small and extremely intimate inside, with extra tables outside. It's almost impossible to get a seat during the day so arrive early (like us) or be prepared for a long wait.

Verdict
Ambience: 8
Service: 9
Food: 8.5
Price: 8.5
