George Jones Eatery, Pascoe Vale

15 Pascoe Street
Pascoe Vale
VIC 3044

We were invited to visit the Gearge Jones Eatery in Pascoe Vale, and ended up picking a perfect Autumn morning to ride up there. It is situated in a new building on Pascoe Vale Street with plenty of tables spilling out the front onto the wide pavement terrace.

Inside the fit out is modern and stylish with a clean, spacious feeling, yet still plenty of atmosphere. The name refers to the areas first shop keeper.

We perused the breakfast menu which  featured some interesting dishes alongside some breaky favourites. We kicked off with coffee, which is roasted on site. The long black was rich and smooth with little bitterness.

The flat white also went down well. 

The other half chose the scrambled egg on multigrain toast with a side of smashed avo. All the components were well executed with fluffy but slightly moist eggs and creamy avocado. 

I went for the citrus cured salmon served with poached egg, croquette, celeriac and dill remoulade and a rye crumb. The fish was lovely, firm and full of flavour, without being quite so intense as the smoked variety. The yolk of the egg was gooey, just how I like it. The remoulade and croquettes added more textures and flavours to complete a different and winning breakfast dish.

Through our visit the service was friendly and efficient. There was only a short wait for our meals, despite the busy venue. We didn't have to pay for our food or coffees, I think the bill would have been around $50, which seemed fair given the quality. We'd certainly be happy to head back next time we are in the area.
