Breakfast like a king is what the experts say and it's no chore at Shouk Cafe, just off Latrobe Terrace in Paddington.
Established in March 2014, this cafe quickly established itself as a top breakfast destination and happily nothing has changed. Owned by Guy Frawley and Adi Shabtay, Shouk runs like a well oiled machine from the kitchen to the floor.
The dishes not only taste good, the presentation lifts the experience. Pumpkin and halloumi on toast doesn't sound all that exciting but look at the top photo. Roasted pumpkin with pumpkin puree accompanied by two 63 degree eggs topped with spicy zhoug sauce was irresitable.
Shouk's treatment of a latke stack sees Polish potato pancakes laced with smoked salmon and lined with slices of picked red onions.
If you're a little sick of the standard breakfast offerings around town, head to Shouk and you won't be disappointed.

Best tip: You can't book for Shouk's popular breakfast unless you have a large group. Happily you can ring ahead and put your name on the door list and they will call you when a table is available. It doesn't usually take too long.
Bottom line: Breakfast prices range between $15 and $18.50
