I'm not really one for brunch, normally opting for a bowl of porridge in the morning and a sandwich at lunch.

But now I'm fully convinced.

I went and tried Milsons Point's 'Smashed Avocado' dish recently, and it was a masterpiece of delicately balanced flavours.

Seasoned avocado, tomatoes, chillies, balsamic glaze, and watercress, all on a piece of toasted sourdough.

A very simple idea, but done to perfection. Also, I loved the interior decor and the staff's manners were impeccable.

What else is on the menu?

Milsons Point's breakfast menu features a slap-up 'Breaky Plate' for lovers of the full English, the brunch classic Eggs Benedict, French Toast with maple syrup and bacon or compote and yogurt, and more.

For lunch, they've got a homemade chowder, Chicken Caesar salad, a 'Winter Couscous' with courgette and butternut squash, to name but a few.

It's an ideal lunch (or brunch) date. Its prices are closer to restaurant value, however - but I was happy to pay for the quality.
