Dundas & Faussett

From the crowds that are drawn to Dundas and Fausett every weekend morning, you would think that it would certainly be a place worth talking about. Situated on Victoria Avenue in Albert Park, and offering both indoor and outdoor seating, Dundas and Faussett offers the standard cafe venue setting.

The most Instagramable worthy dish on their breakfast menu would have to be the Ricotta hotcakse with banana, palm sugar caramel, hazelnut crumble and fresh berries. Coming out looking as pretty as a picture, whilst definitely delicious, my friend who is known for her sweet tooth found it so sweet that she couldn't even finish it - indeed, after the bite I had, whilst it was delicious, I was sculling down the water - the giant chunks of sweet hazelnut crumble were quite unnecessary.


The breakfast bruschetta was another dish that came out looking amazing.

Unfortunately, my dish (smoked salmon with potato rosti, avocado salsa and poached egg) was the least prettiest dish out of the three and the most underwhelming - my egg was overlooked, the toast was so tough I almost sprained my wrist trying to cut through it and the rosti tasted like dry ball of flour.

The coffee, however, was spot on and the staff were friendly - so whilst not a complete ride off, it's definitely not the new fave.

Food: 2.5/5
Venue: 2.5/5
Service: 3.5/5
Total: 8.5/15
Verdict: Like - get around to trying it at some point
