On a recent visit to Echuca I had breakfast at the Black Pudding deli, which claims to deliver the best breakfast in town. If that is true, I feel sorry for the locals. Maybe they make their own breakfast at home and leave the cafes to the tourists. The coffee at the Black Pudding was watery and burned, with no crema or flavour, and the food was average.
My girlfriend chose the breakfast melt, which was avocado, bacon and parmesan on a toasted English muffin. Only one side had any avocado, and it was the most miserly spread of it I have ever seen. There could also have been more cheese on top.
My bacon and fried egg bagel was better, but it was merely good, not anything more than that. High St in Echuca was quite lively for a Sunday morning and the Black Pudding was one of the busiest cafes, which is usually a good sign of quality. I was surprised by how underwhelming the breakfast was and given the number of options available, I will try somewhere else next time.
