One of my favourite cafes to take my friends and family is Billykart Annerley, and not just because it’s a five minute drive from me. Billykart boasts three cafes; Billkart West End, Billykart Provisions and, my favourite, Billykart Annerley. Billykart is the baby of celebrity chef Ben O’Donoghue and is always bustling with life. Being a lover of breakfast, and this being a breakfast lover’s menu, I often find myself sipping one of their amazing cappuccinos and eagerly waiting for my french toast on a Saturday morning.
Billykart’s breakfasts are second to none with their crispy corn fritters and fluffy ricotta buttermilk pancakes always a crowd pleaser. They always have fresh muffins and pastries on the counter and an assortment of baked goods in the cabinet. This breakfast favourite is very popular among locals, and groups of four or more may require a booking on the weekends. Billykart is local, delicious and a must-go breakfast destination. I would 10/10 recommend a trip there for coffee with friends, or just to treat yourself with some self-care.
My go-to menu choice is their brioche french toast, fresh strawberries, new season peach puree, strawberry and lavender syrup, and a cappuccino, which sets me back $22.50 and is worth every penny.
