Home-made Birchers Muesli topped with yoghurt and fresh fruit
The home-made muesli was the highlight of our breakfast. A fresh, moist and delicious option, we loved the luxurious yoghurt and the freshness from the berries.
Prosciutto & asparagus bruschetta with rocket, olive oil, poached egg & parmesan flakes
Two perfectly poached eggs were succulently seasoned with savoury prosciutto and accompanied by perfectly cooked asparagus. The highlight of the dish was the grilled bread which had a lovely crunchy yet chewy crust. In all, this dish was a respectable assembly of breakfast essentials.
DMH Signature. Fried egg, chorizo, oven baked cheesy tortilla topped with fresh tomato & bean salsa
House made Pancakes topped with fruit compote served with ice cream & maple syrup
A simple breakfast favourite that amalgamates the best things in life (such as ice cream). The pancake was fluffy and moist and embellished with delicious fruit compote.
The coffees at De Mad Hatter are excellent. Served with an intricate rosetta in the milk foam, both our cappuccino and latte were well made, with the slight sweetness of the frothed milk cutting through the residual brightness from the foundation espresso.
The breakfast offerings at De Mad Hatter are respectable with reasonable prices and an extensive menu to suit most.
