“Snow Pony is famous for it's smashed avocado on toast; but I say their banana bread is also a winner.”
I’m not really one that goes out for brunch much. Either I sleep in too late, have too much to do, or attempt to make something delicious at home instead. But I read too many blogs, and have too many places on my wish list of places to try… brunch might happen a little more frequently. In fact I went out both days this weekend for brunch, a very rare treat indeed.
Today I caught up with my BFF for brunch and retail therapy. Snow Pony has been on my list for at least 2 years, mainly their banana bread. Whilst I have been to Porgie + Mr Jones which is owned by the same people, and has the same menu; I went for lunch and had an amazing steak sandwich there.
We made the trek over to Balwyn, had a short wait for a table, but let me tell you… it was so worth it. We both had the banana bread (BFF Alana apologised for ordering the same thing as it wouldn’t make for a very exciting blog post 😛 Bless! ) and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. It wasn’t too sweet, and we didn’t feel extremely thirsty or gross after eating it, unlike when we left Replete Providore after their hot cakes. The berries and the pistachio are a great accompaniment, and the fresh banana helps to cut through everything. The banana bread itself was light and fluffy; seriously an all around perfect dish.
Service was friendly, and prices were rather reasonable. I’ll definitely head back when I’m in the area next.
