WHEN YOU SEE ‘pas­sion pop’ as one of the first things on a brunch menu, you may take a brief men­tal detour back to your days of chug­ging the pur­ple­la­belled, fizzy goon. But here at the Gen­eral Eatery and Sup­plies – a dainty Dul­wich Hill café – pas­sion pop is their de­li­cious house­made soda that you’ll sip through an en­vi­ron­men­tally sound steel straw. An­other nos­tal­gic sweet treat on the menu is the choco­late peanut-but­ter milk­shake, which tastes like a frothy Snick­ers. You’ll also find break­fast favourites like av­o­cado on toast, gra­nola and eggs-your-way along­side a bunch of burg­ers. Ve­gan ops in­clude mushies on toast: a thick-cut slice of Bread and But­ter Project rye batard comes slathered in cele­riac purée, which adds a creami­ness where non-ve­g­ans would usu­ally miss but­ter. Swiss brown mush­rooms are cooked so they are still juicy but not soggy, while whole cloves of roast gar­lic add rich­ness. It’s an awe­some meat-free break­fast. We were ex­cited to see the corn frit­ter burger on the menu: a ba­con-an­degg-roll-meets-frit­ter baby. The ba­con is crisp and the avo plen­ti­ful, but the frit­ter could do with a bit more time in the fryer to en­sure it’s cooked right through. Make sure you round your morn­ing out with a slice of car­rot loaf. A three­cen­time­tre thick slice of nut-stud­ded, super-moist cake comes topped with a wodge of melted maple but­ter. It goes down damn well with a cof­fee, which is made from Sin­gle O beans. Once you’ve fin­ished your brekky it’s worth hav­ing a peek at the ‘sup­plies’ side of the café, where you’ll find cute ce­ram­ics, free-range eggs and house­made bar­be­cue and hot sauces.
