Breakfast At Sydney: Style, Dining and Avocado Inspiration
I was absolutely thrilled when owner, Jordan N.Boslego, invited me to visit his new Australian inspired restaurant in the Waterplace Condo complex in Downtown Providence. Sydney was designed in homage to the coffee shop culture in Australia ( mostly in Sydney and Melbourne) with its logo evoking the famous Sydney Opera House. According to one of my amazing Australian friends, Mandy Arisa of Sydney, Australia http://instagram.com/ministryforstyle "Yesssss coffee is amazing here" although the always classy Vivian of Melbourne, Australia http://instagram.com/theblacklayers states "Coffee is more amazing in Melbourne!!!! Cafes everywhere compared to Sydney...I would say it's best in AU!" According to the girls, independent coffee shops do really well there, with hardly many Starbucks or larger chains taking over. Boslego has certainly captured the charm of the culture in this brilliant and delightful yet elegant and modern restaurant. My daughter and I took advantage of Boslego's invitation by having a breakfast date there last Sunday. We enjoyed every moment of our experience and our meal.
I absolutely adored the Avocado Toast. It was served with feta, cherry tomatoes and micro greens. I also asked for smoked salmon and a poached egg. It was incredibly perfect. The espresso was divine and the lovely Allie and adorable Michael could not have been more accommodating and pleasant while attending to me and my daughter.
I happily noticed that Sydney uses so many local establishments for their ingredients. The eggs are from Baffoni's Poultry Farm, the milk from Guida's Dairy, and they purchase their honey from Full Bloom Apiary, keeping the businesses here in RI flourishing.
Angelina enjoyed the ricotta toast. They offer both a savory version ( served on olive bread with fresh herbs) or sweet (served on country Pullman with English preserves and fresh berries). She choose the sweet and was really happy about her selection!
I wore this cute little tunic dress I found at http://www.journeyfive.com/ I discovered Journey Five on Instagram over a year ago and purchased many items from the site. The owner is a mom of 5 with a whole lot of style who keeps lots of ladies looking their best no matter how busy they are. Truly, a woman after my own heart.
My hat and tights are from target.com and the boots were a recent find from macys.com. They are the INCinternationalconcepts line and I've been wearing them nonstop since I got them.

After visting Sydney and enjoying the awesome avocado dish I decided I would try to incorporate more avocado into my recipes. Not only does it contain heart heathy mono saturated fatty acids, it is loaded with fiber and proven to lower cholesterol and triglycerides levels. Having it prepared so well at Sydney certainly inspired me to take advantage of the healthy benefits.
I found quite a few ideas I want to try in the next couple of weeks.
