Brekkie @ Gang Gang Cafe

The shops at Downer were abandoned for years. We vaguely remember having dinner at an Indian restaurant there around 2002, but it closed soon after and the shops stood empty. Happily, they're in the process of being revitalised. A friend who lives in Downer recently mentioned that a cafe had opened. As connoisseurs of breakfast and fans of local shopping centres, we went there this morning. The Gang Gang Cafe was a cosy little haven on a chilly day. I liked the rustic decor and macrame wall hangings. The menu is simple but has plenty of scope for mixing and matching extra ingredients.

He had:

Poached eggs on sourdough toast, with bacon and chorizo

She had:

Smashed avocado and feta on sourdough toast,
with mushrooms and bacon

The coffees were good too.

In other news ... the Filipino eatery Lolo and Lola is due to open in Watson next week! It's in the spot where Marco's and Joey's and Cherryripe used to be. Let's hope it stays a while. We've enjoyed Filipino food at Canberra's occasional Night Noodle Markets and I'm looking forward to trying the restaurant.
