Karma and Crow is THE new breaky place getting plenty of chat time around the water cooler, so of course, I had to check it out. And it appeared every egg-eating individual in Adelaide shared the same thought as me last Sunday with a sizeable crowd gathering at the entrance and a 40 minute wait list. I’m certainly no lover of lines however if they are on top of the demand with a reliable waiting system in place then you wont hear me complaining. Well, not too loudly anyway. The staff’s wait estimate was right on point and with one coffee already guzzled while we chilled, we were ushered to our highly sort after seats.
Karma and Crow’s menu has plenty to offer from ricotta pancakes to a classic big brekkie. I decided to keep it simple with poached eggs on sourdough with a side of bacon and a potato hash. This dish provided a solid breakfast performance with the eggs poached to gooey perfection and the bacon crispy as requested. The potato hash was essentially like a fried ball of salty mash potato which tasted just as good as it sounds. I’ve been spotting a bit more of the potato hash on menus as a change from the usual hash brown and I’ll tell you what, I’m certainly not mad about it.
My only minor peeve with the plate was the one piece of bread. I have a strict one for one egg/bread ratio rule and I’m not down with cafes that lump 2 googs on one piece. That’s just not cricket. Sure, often I don’t finish the second piece of toast but I like having it there to nibble and when I’m paying the usual hefty price of breakfast in Adelaide, I should have the option to lapse into a carb coma if I want to god damn it!
My brunch bud went for the zucchini fritters which he gobbled down fairly efficiently with a delighted grin so I’m going to assume he liked his meal too.
For bevs, we went for coffees and a couple of freshly squeezed fruits. I went with a straight OJ, no mixer, because I’m a hardcore like that. I can confirm it had just the right amount of pulp. My friend chose a drop from their list of juice concoctions which all looked extremely tempting.
AND big thanks to my breakfast bud Jay Loxton (with the beautiful locks) for taking these beautiful photos. He takes amazing pics over on his Insta so feel free to check them out here.
Where else should I head for Breaky? I’d love to know! Comment below or tweet me.
Until next time…That’s what she said.
