We started off the day with some friends over a casual breakfast at Triim. It was a bit difficult to decide though whether we should try it out or not because it’s located among all these other cafes and restaurants in the busy Hardware Lane. First thing you’ll notice about Triim are the super vibrant red seats spread across three different levels. The service was good and we didn’t have to wait too long for the food to arrive.
Triim’s Big Breakfast $13.90 Toast with eggs either poached, fried or scambled, cooked sausages, mushroom, bacon, spinach tomato and a fried hash brown. Great value for it’s generous serving and seemed cheaper than what you would usually find in Hardware Lane
Hot chocolate with marshmallows $3.50 was good, glad that it came really hot because it wasn’t a particularly warm morning.
Museli served with fruit (stawberries/cantaloupe) and yoghurt and milk on the side $5.50
Surprisingly this was also cheaper than other places, serving size was quite decent, tasted pretty ordinary, would’ve been better if there was a little more variety with the fruits.
Raisin toast $5.50, pretty ordinary, toast is toast.
Overall, we found Triim a nice place to chill (although there were some rocking tables), it’s nothing really special, they have a simple menu and it’s definitely great value compared to it’s neighbouring cafes and restaurants. We probably would drop by again for a casual meal.
