A couple of weeks ago my sister and I met for breakfast at Bion Societé. I must say I thought the place looked a bit more ordinary than the photos I’d seen online. Management change, perhaps?
As usual, we started off with long blacks, which were thankfully served in larger than usual cups. Good coffee.
Long blacks ($3.50)
We shared the Tasmanian smoked salmon Benedict (soft poached eggs on brioche -we got gluten-free toast instead-, smoked salmon, cherry tomato, asparagus, sauce vierge, salmon roe-missing, green herb oil, baby herbs & hollandaise) and the BION Cafe breakfast (2 poached eggs served with caramelised tomato, mushrooms, pork sausage, bacon, wilted spinach & sourdough – we got gluten-free toast instead).
Tasmanian smoked salmon Benedict ($18)
See that piece of buttery substance in the photo below? Not butter. Either margarine or one of those spreadable water-filled concoctions.
BION Cafe breakfast ($20)
Unfortunately the food was average, which is a pity considering the place is nice, and service and coffee are not bad either.
