Faraday’s Cage actually means an enclosure that blocks electromagnetic fields…

FARADAY’S CAGE, FITZROY: Having heard so much about Faraday’s Cage, it was so exciting to finally go for an early Easter Monday breakfast. We were treated with a delicious array of freshly baked pastries, featuring a crispy, buttery croissant, a Nutella cronut, and of course, a warm, hot cross bun. Famous for having their own in-house bakery, and a mouthwatering scent of fresh sourdough wafting through the streets of Fitzroy, their pastries certainly didn’t let us down, and neither did the interesting combination of brunch options.

Salted caramel and Nutella cronut was the first, (and therefore best) cronut ever!

Perfection on a plate

The good fat: Beautiful and crispy fritters, with deliciously tender pieces of salmon dashed around the side. Loved the addition of the sweet potato crisps for that added crunch. The egg was poached perfectly and the pumpkin puree with avocado were smooth and flavoursome, with slight hints of chilli.

The bad fat: If the fritters were fried even crispier on the outside that would’ve been more perfect. The puree had random bits of really strong chilli at times that made it a little hard to eat.

Fat-o-meter: 4.5/5

Prawn and Avocado Roll (Coleslaw and Smashed Avocado, Fried Egg, on House-made Brioche Bun) – $25.0

That golden brioche bun is salivational

The good fat: Such an interesting idea to incorporate a cold, prawn salad and a standard coleslaw on a hot, toasted bun. The brioche was incredibly soft and light, coated with a tasty relish that allowed the egg and avocado to soak into it. Generous pieces of prawn scattered through, making it juicy and delicious!

The bad fat: The avocado and the sauce from the coleslaw soaked through the brioche quite rapidly which made the burger get soggy. Similar to the fritters, there were strong parts of chilli pieces inside which was a bit off-putting at times. The relish could’ve also been more powerful.

Fat-o-meter: 4/5

Ricotta Pancakes (Honeycomb, Raspberry Puree, Nut Crumble, Freeze Dried Raspberries, Fresh Berries and Mascarpone)

Check out that golden drip of honey!

The good fat: Light, fluffy and spongy pancakes with a beautiful dollop of mascarpone on top! It was great to have the maple syrup on the side so that the pancakes wouldn’t be ridiculously soaked in sweetness – the balance between spongy, creaminess, and sugar was just perfect. Small drops of raspberry puree were sweet and fresh additions that went well beautifully with the fresh fruits accompanying. Honeycomb was a creative and interesting option to add that sweet crunch!

The bad fat: Having had so many pancakes, there has never been a place that can go wrong with extra nuts on top – can never get enough of the crunchy earthiness!

Fat-o-meter: 4.5/5
