Brunch. Always on the lookout for a new brunch spot, Mr E took me here, to Gartine, last Saturday. Tucked away just off the Kalverstraat it's a little oasis of peace, calm, and delicious food.
A very tiny little cafe packed with charm. We were lucky enough to fluke a table, many that came after us were turned away. So if you are going, I recommend you book ahead.
The brunch menu is quite limited, and we both opted for the scrambled eggs with home grown herbs. Amazing. I'd never had my scrambled eggs like this, and it was really good! The sourdough bread was also phenomenal, and drenched in butter. Ooh, they know how to make this Australian happy. There were no scones, poor moi, but they have a pretty impressive looking cake fridge. Had we only spied it properly on the way in, not out, we would have tried something for sure. It all looked incredible.
So, if you're heading to that horrid Kalverstraat for X-mas shopping, my advice is to give yourself a treat and book in a little respite at Gartine.
