Howdy ho saying a big good morning from Ballarat! We fueled up at perhaps the most popular brunch place in this region before visiting Sovereign Hill.

Chia And Almond Milk Pudding, Seasonal Fruit, Meredith Yoghurt And Superfood Sprinkles, 12.50AUD

The Chia pudding was supposedly a lightweight meal but in actual fact a really filling option. The Chia was not bland as the sweetness come from the fruits. The fruits added were kiwi slices and some Granny Smiths.

Corn Fritter, Huon Smoked Salmon, Horseradish Cream, Caper Berries And Poached Eggs, 18AUD

We expected a stack of fritters because we were used to the idea of having stacked fritters in typical brunch restaurants. This one was served in one huge single serving. The fritter was not crispy, rather, it had a more pancakey texture. If there were more spices within the fritters, as well as deep fried it a little more, that would have been perfect. Nonetheless, I guess many others unlike me, prefer less crisped up ones.

Spiced Baked Eggs With Istra Chorizo, Red Capsicum, Spinach & Toasted Sourdough, 17AUD
The baked eggs were tasty and packed with spinach and we loved the generosity L’Espresso provides.
French Toast With Mascarpone Cream, Vanilla Berry Compote And Hazelnut Crumble, 16.50AUD
The brioche came in warm and fluffy. The dish was not overpoweringly sweet and the crumbles were our favourite parts. We thoroughly enjoyed the French Toast and concluded that this dish was the best dish of what we ordered.

It is certainly not easy to find brunch food places that is on par as the Melbourne city standards. Regardless, L’Espresso still managed to somewhat tick all the positive boxes in our list. After all, L’Espresso is for a fact the most popular brunch place of the limited choices there are in Ballarat, well, according to Zomato so as to speak.
