Liar, Liar Cafe, Hawthorn

By Ling

Have you ever been on a double date? It is super duper fun! Hubby and I went on a double date with this lovely couple, Jin and Jessica for breakfast. I chose the time to meet and Jessica chose the venue. She had been to Liar, Liar a few times and had enjoyed her previous visits.

It was a Saturday morning and the place was heaving – that’s a good sign for good food!! Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long for a table. A waitress came round to take our drinks order and craving caffeine, I ordered a mocha. The mocha was lovely – a good balance of chocolate and coffee.

My eyes automatically zoned in on this menu item – the Big Fat Liar breakfast which was eggs done the way you like with mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, spinach and tomato relish. It was definitely right up my street. But alas, I didn’t order that. Why? Because we had another double date for lunch in two hours time so I didn’t want to over-indulge.

Instead I ordered the BLAT – bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato with aioli on toasted bread.

It was just right. Not too filling for me. It would have been really dry but the avocado helped moisten the dry unbuttered toast. (I would also have preferred a fried runny egg to go with it…hehe)

Hubby and Jin both ordered the French Toast – I had a small bite of Hubby’s but I am not a huge fan of French toast so I was not that impressed – but both of them hoovered the French toast up.

As for Jessica, she went for the Pants On Fire – spicy Spanish style baked eggs with pepperonata and chorizo sausage. I had a taste and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t spicy in my opinion – I can eat really spicy foods. But the tomatoey goo tasted tangy and had a slight kick in it.

We had a great time in Liar, Liar – but the only annoying thing is the location of the toilets. To go to the loo, you must ask the waitress for the key, leave the premises, and walk to another building behind it. Okay, okay, it took about 3 minutes to get there, but still!!

Anyway, I think Liar, Liar is a good place to go to chill out and enjoy breakfast.
