A trip to Birkenhead Point for some shopping led us to the lovely part of the world that is Balmain. Having been here a few times before I knew that this area is full of cute and quirky cafes and gorgeous views of the harbour.

We parked on the side of the road (metered parking) and took a short walk along Darling Street to see what was around.

Although it was 1.00pm, I was in the mood for brunch food and so we had a look at a few of the menus from some breakfast cafes in the area, finally settling on Made.

1 Made is a small cafe with a little outdoor area in a building which was probably once a terrace house.

A friendly waiter asked us to take a seat (anywhere we wanted as it wasn’t too busy), and we chose a seat out on the balcony.

After a lot of “umming” and “ahhing”, mainly on my part, we placed our orders. While we waited I had an English Breakfast tea and MC had a (very yuummy) banana milkshake.

MC ordered the Made Steak & Eggs Breakfast which contained:

  • 2 eggs
  • Steak
  • Grilled tomato
  • Potato rosti
  • Hollandaise sauce
  • Choice of toast

He was pretty pleased with it and seemed to enjoy it. He did mention that he wanted some bacon (available as an extra for $3.50) but I just swapped him some of mine for some of those delicious potato rostis!


I ordered the Made Full Breakfast which consisted of:

  • 2 eggs
  • Grilled tomato
  • A rasher of bacon
  • Roasted mushroom
  • Baked Beans
  • Black Pudding (I swapped this for an extra rasher of bacon)
  • Choice of toast (I picked sourdough)

The beans were cooked in a delicious tomato-y sauce and the bacon was golden and brown-just the way I like it! The bread was well toasted and the tomato and mushroom were char-grilled. I had my eggs poached and they were made just to my liking-  not too runny. Overall a delicious and very filling brunch!


I also have to comment that service was pretty good and the girl who was our waitress was very friendly and nice.

I would certainly recommend brunch at Made for anyone living in the area or visiting.


Overall I would rate my dining experience (out of 10):

    • Service- 6
    • Food- 8
    • Ambience- 6.5
    • Value – 7
