It's increasingly difficult to find breakfast spots that I haven't tried close to home, so I've been casting my foodie net a little further of late. It's not that I can't find cafes that I haven't been to before, but it's hard to find a cafe with a menu that appeals. Some of them are too fancy and some of them don't really have enough options to make it interesting for me, and by interesting, I usually mean chorizo on the menu.
When looking online for a breakfast spot, I usually look for areas that I know or have lived in before, so I went searching for cafes in the half dozen or so suburbs I lived in previously. We ended up finding a cafe in the Grange, which is one of the northern suburbs SC and I lived in for a whole six weeks! Long story short, our awesome house at the Grange was sold out from underneath us and we had to find a new place to live - which resulted in finding an even more awesome house in Bardon.
I'd never heard of The Hutch Bistro before, but I was intrigued by the web site, which had proudly displayed a Dimmi badge noting that it was their 'neighbourhood gem' for 2013. It was enough to entice me to look over the menu, which didn't have a heap of options, but did list chorizo as one of their 'extras'. It was enough for me, so we jumped in the car and drove north.
