Brunch @ The Emporium Parramatta (and some cute costumes)

Recently we made a weekend trip to our old stomping ground of Parramatta to catch up with friends and see the Miss Fisher costume exhibition. A friend suggested we meet for brunch at The Emporium Parramatta ... she hadn't tried it but had heard good reviews. Sure enough, the feast was delicious and the setting perfect for a gossipy catch-up! The menu featured:

Cured King Salmon with broccolini, poached egg,
dill yoghurt, watercress and sourdough

Brioche French toast, Nutella, caramelised
banana, maple syrup and hazelnuts

Sautéed mushrooms, hummus, kale, poached
eggs and cashew dukkah

It was fabulous to catch up with my two friends (we all worked together about 25 years ago). Looking forward to next time already ...

After brunch we headed off to Old Government House for the costume exhibition. It didn't disappoint. A few pics:

We're never sorry we moved away from Sydney it's too crowded and too expensive there to lead a quiet life but it was lovely to spend a couple of days as visitors.
