Even though it is a local, I've always steered away from going to White Salt for breakfast, simply because I know how expensive the dinners are. But alas, the aim to head to Voyage was disrupted due to the fact they sat us, gave us menus, walked back with water then decided to tell us they aren't serving any of the breakfast menu due to renovations... extremely irritating considering they could have told us that as we walked in? So, instead of driving off we decided to at least look at the White Salt menu and were pleasantly surprised at the resonable price.
As we walked in we were welcomed by friendly staff, given a nice seat and told of the free toast bar. YES, FREE TOAST! Basically, different New Norcia breads are laid out - even a beautiful fruit and nut bread - on a table at the back of the restaurant where you can go and make your own toast, as much as you want and there was also free filter coffee... no cups though?
D decided on his staple poached eggs on toast and a side of hashbrowns which came out beautifully cooked and looked lovely.
I chose to get the spring onion omelette which was filled with spring onion, tomato and cheddar cheese with a fresh rocket salad. This was without a doubt the biggest omelette I had ever seen, literally the size of the entire plate but it was flipped and there was no way I could finish - especially after grabbing a piece of toast from the toast bar. It was extremely delicious though, the eggs weren't overcooked and the freshness of the rocket was amazing. I am not a huge fan of tomatoes but they were chopped up to a perfect size and complemented the eggs well. I'm also not a massive fan of fried foods and the hasbrowns were a little oily for me but slightly different to the packet ones that you seem to get at most places so they were nice. If you get the omellete, don't order sides!
It was a rainy day, but I love nothing more than the beach in winter so sitting inside and watching the rain over the ocean made for a perfect morning at White Salt.
