How was it?
Last Saturday morning I met up with Miss LV and Miss Toronto for breakfast at Bills. We arrived at about 10am, and surprisingly did not have to wait for a table! Lucky! I had heard about Bills a couple of years ago from one of my friends, who was an international student. Apparently it was one of the 'must eat' places in Sydney. She would rave about Bills, and ask 'Have you been to Bills?', 'Why haven't you been to Bills? You live here?'... oh, sorry! So I rectified that situation pretty swiftly. That was a few years ago, and since then I have only had pleasant experiences at Bills.
Bills is owned by Bill Granger, who is somewhat of a celebrity with a few international best selling cook books and restaurants to his name. The food here is very simple, yet tasty and creative (check out the ricotta pancakes below!). It took a while to come out, but oh it was worth it! And our drinks kept us satisfied in the meantime.
Bircher muesli with granny smith apples and sliced almonds $11.50
(aka the most beautiful bowl of muesli)
Scrambled eggs with sourdough toast $12.80 + extra mushrooms $3.80
I'm craving all this food, just looking through my pictures again! The scrambled eggs are a must at Bills. They are creamy, fluffy and sweet - I don't know how they get it to taste so good! The muesli was beautiful and quite filling, and I think if heaven had a taste, it would taste a bit like those ricotta pancakes - beautiful and moreish!
I can definitely see why Bills has become a Sydney institution. The prices are reasonable, the food is always top quality and it's the perfect way to spend your morning. A surcharge of 10% applies to weekends and public holidays. Lunch and dinner also available.
