Proud Mary

Posted on Nov 17, 2013 by in Collingwood, Melbourne, Reviews | 0 comments


This perennially popular Collingwood cafe is one of my old favourites. Expect to queue regardless of what day or time it is – I had visited a number of times pre-blog, back in my uni days and it seemed there was no shortage of people wanting to get in. I am normally reluctant to wait for food, but I know that Proud Mary is worth it.

Potato hash ($18)

The potato hash had a well-browned, crisp surface. The strands of potato were cooked through but still firm; they weren’t mushy at all. The thick cut bacon was wonderfully smokey and indulgent. The bagna cauda, a classic Italian sauce made from anchovies, cream and garlic, had a good savoury characteristic which made the dish interesting.

Frank n beans ($17.50)

Juicy house made pork and fennel sausage was served with tomatoey beans and garlic fried sourdough. A well-seasoned, hearty breakfast.

The verdict

There’s a reason why Proud Mary is still so popular. Why don’t you find out for yourself?
