Lorca, Melbourne

French toast with poached pears & maple syrup

After days of Degraves St breakfasts, it was time to move forward to uncover another laneway. Not many people venture through here, but across Degraves is another laneway of cafes, soup kitchens and sandwiches. After following a lingering smell of coffee, I fell into Lorca. With the thought of indulgence, I opted for the french toast served with poached pears, maple syrup, and if all the above wasn’t sweet enough, a dusting of icing sugar and cinnamon. The poached pears transformed a simple dish into a delicious one.

Enjoying my french toast, coffee and watching a movie in the laneway made me feel very far away from home.
