Yes, I know I’m Torturing Your Taste Buds…

In a continuation of yesterdays post, we are having breakfast at Fat Pigeon Café  in the small North Island town of Piopio. An amazing selection awaits us  so let’s take a look  at some seriously good eating…

It’s looking  at photos like these that makes me want to rush into the kitchen and start cooking…

Sicilian Apple cake.. (gluten and dairy free)… (note for Tilly Bud: look away now, or send in the spelling Marfia:  they spelt “Sicilian”wrong”.)

Thick slices of Bacon and Egg Pie… (for the price: The NZ Dollar is roughly half the USA Dollar).

Choosing something from this kind of fare suited Himself and I just fine, but our pesky fussy  “we-like-it-plain” kids just went for the club sandwiches…

And since it was breakfast and not lunch I decided on something smaller: one of those beautiful bacon and egg pies…

    • I know GH,
      One good thing about taking the photos is that I can remind myself to come back here one day when we are passing and to trying something else on the menu!

  3. Every last one looks amazingly delish but I would (nearly) kill for a slice of that rhubarb lemon curd cream cheese oat cake!

    • Carrie, I’m going to use it as inspiration to try and make one of my own (or as close to this as I can get) so it’s on a cooking “to do” list that’s growing ever longer LOL
