The Breakfast Society [On The Road: Melbourne]

A pretty popular place in Melbourne is The Hardware Societe, the place is only open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week. A menu that changes all the time depending on the specials and seasons, Fusion between Spanish and French cuisines. Small bright café with a couple tables outside in Hardware st. for alfresco experience. 

The Place
120 Hardware St
The place is pretty packed, always full, my first try was for brunch end of the morning, impossible to get a table, long queue so I desisted. Second try, a bit more lucky, got a table outside, a estrella beer, examined the menu, no pork belly as it was sold out, so went for duck leg with lentils. 

Beer time
I was expecting to love the place, service was great, but food wasn't, everything was dry, the duck, the lentils, the rocket needed something else, but not the glueish sauce the duck had, the dish didn’t work at all, not good. 

Got a coffee, as everywhere else in Melbourne it was great, I'm honestly shocked with the coffee culture of the city. 

Great Coffee
Coffee time
Breakfast reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Subway” 

Jerry: OK. You realize of course, you're naked? 
Naked man: Naked, dressed. I don't see any difference 
Jerry: You ought to sit here, there is a difference 
Naked man: You got something against the naked body? 
Jerry: I got something against yours. How about a couple of deep knee bends, maybe a squat thrust? 
Naked man: Who's got time for squat thrusts? 
Jerry: All right, how about skipping breakfast. I'm guessing you're not a half grapefruit and black coffee guy 
Naked man: I like a good breakfast. 
Jerry: I understand, I like good breakfast. Long as you don't wind up trapped in a room with bimbo broals and pigtails, been counselled by Dick Gregory 
Naked man: I'm not ashamed of my body
Jerry: Exactly, that's your problem, you should be
