This place would make Willy Wonka very happy!
Co-owned by Simon Flocco and Anthony Canova, the name is taken from the postcode of Hyde Park. Simon says the inspiration for 50sixone has come from New York and a bar with a decadent dessert menu.
Open from early ’til late they serve all day breakfast, lunch and fabulous desserts and inspired shakes!
I love the interior, with red brick walls, wooden beams, black steel and lots of green from tiles, to the cushioned benches along the wall, to the cute hanging plants.
Breakfast (and lunch) includes ‘Granola wake-me-up’; a house-made granola, mixed berry yoghurt panna cotta and a fresh array of seasonal fruit. Or you could try the breakfast sliders: a trio of sliders, one with bacon, eggs, goat cheese and roasted cherry tomatoes, or smoked salmon, baby spinach, Spanish onion and dill hollandaise and finally a poached egg rocket and avocado. Maybe served with some eggplant or onion hand cut fries.
And ‘All things red’; baby beetroot, radish, tomato, capsicum, red chilli and a poached egg. In the Panini range, the cheese steak looks delicious with a marinated fillet steak, sautéed capsicum, onions and provolone cheese.
There are seven shakes to choose from including ‘A little loopy’; a vanilla fruit loop thick shake with a white chocolate rim covered in sprinkles, topped with fresh cream and skewered fruit loops. Perfect for breakfast!!
