This frrreeeezzing Saturday morning at 8am, hubby and I picked up Mrs Gee from her car service to go grab some breakfast before visiting Mrs YM and her new bubs. I had my mind set on The Imp but surprise, surprise they were full. I remembered walking past The Precinct a couple of nights ago with hubby so decided to give it a go. We walked in and found out that they didn't serve breakfast until 9am! With 30 minutes to spare, it was a decision of should we stay or should we go? Hubby knowing that I really wanted to try The Precinct said we should stay and have drinks and maybe a muffin (if we're hungry) until 9am.
There wasn't too much to choose from on the menu, the descriptions weren't particularly enticing but it was refreshing (not your stock standard breakfast choices). We ordered our drinks and a muffin to start with and when 9am came we ordered our breakfast (all hot breakfasts because it was frrreeezzing!).
2 x Lattes
1 x Green tea
1 x Today's muffin $4.50
1 x Green eggs and ham, confit tomatoes $18
1 x Slow cooked eggs, soft polenta, confit tomatoes $16
1 x Breakfast cassoulet, beans, slow cooked eggs, pork $20
Food and presentation - 4/5The taste and presentation of our breakfast exceeded my expectations. The food was fresh and tasty, different blends of flavours and combinations to keep breakfast interesting. Presentation was funky which is definitely something to commend the chefs at The Precinct for. The few times I've had green eggs at various other places, it was pretty much green scrambled eggs and some bits and pieces on the side but at The Precinct, green eggs just became more interesting (see the photo!). The slow cooked eggs were a bit runny for me but cooked perfectly if you like your eggs "just" cooked.

Atmosphere - 4/5Decor was cool, stylish and seating was comfortable enough but they need a heater!
Value for money - 3.5/5I love going out for breakfast but it's expensive for what you get. At least at The Precinct, the presentation and the unconventional menu made it more worth the price.
Will probably go back to try lunch and/or dinner.
