Jones The Grocer

31 05 2010

You know what’s better than dining at Jones The Grocer @ Dempsey? It’s dining at the original flagship Jones the Grocer @ Woollahra, Sydney! And fyi, I’m travelling down to Australia(Sydney & Adelaide) in the later part of next month and that will definitely be one of my stops, along with Pancakes On the Rocks which I heard serves the most awesome pancakes.

Anyway, T, R, S and myself(all going for the Australia trip) were having our routine Saturday cohesion activities which led to brunch here. Functioning both as a grocer(albeit atas one) and an eatery, Jones boasts a spacious interior, high ceilings and diverse clientele.

Hungry people should get The Jones English Breakfast($20++). T opted for his eggs scrambled(other choices include fried or poached) which turned out slightly runny and creamy(just how I like it). I also liked the toast which was very light and crisp. Apart from that, the bacon & sausages, sauteed mushrooms and grillled tomato was rather run of the mill, but still delightful. 

The Leg Ham Sandwich($13.50++) was served with a bed of salad with balsamic vinegrette dressing. I really don’t recommend getting this here since it’s so easily replicable at home and I’m not a fan of leg ham anyways.  

For myself, the Smoked Salmon on Sourdough Toast with Asparagus & Poached Eggs aka Salmon Benedict($17++ I think). Not very well executed as the eggs were overcooked. The limited amounts of Hollandaise provided was easily overpowered by the smoked salmon and the petite portion was hardly filling in any case.

Imo, Jones the Grocer is one of the more affordable eateries in Dempsey and serves up a decent but unspectacular brunch menu. I’m not complaining about the small portions though, it just left more space in my tumtum to go over to House for dessert!

Bon Appetit!

First time to your blog. 😀 Seems like we been to the same place and ordered the same food. Agree that food was OKAY, and we are paying for the ambience and rental more than anything else.
