I was lucky enough to try out one of the newest cafe attractions to Lyttleton in the new Albion Square- The Shroom Room- for a birthday breakfast.
Walking in, the atmosphere was very inviting and I was taken by the striking black decor and rock n' roll vibe. Handwritten chalkboard menus showed the specials, and the cabinet food looked divine. The selection of pizzas, muffins and sweet treats in this vegetarian and vegan inspired eatery will leave even the meat eaters happy with the options supplied!
It was a bit too early in the morning to be having pizza, so we opted for the breakfast menu. But first came the coffee- a great size and a great price too!

The menu had a great selection of breakfast fare, and a lot of the ladies chose to go with the hash breakfast. Poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, spinach and homemade hash cakes that were generous in size, delicious and well presented.
I opted for the muesli, berry compote, fresh fruit and yoghurt. The presentation was amazing, with a cute chopping broad, springs of lavender and even a fancy milk jug. The food itself was delicious and I may have sparked fresh fruit envy!
Sunlight streamed in, and this cafe boasts an excellent indoor/outdoor flow. You could sit inside on colder days, but the courtyard looked extremely inviting and looked out onto the action. On Saturday the Lyttleton Farmers' Market was running, which meant that the cafe was busy but we did not feel it was too noisy or crowded. It was still a very peaceful place and I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast.
All of us raved about our meals, and it is safe to say we will be experiencing The Shroom Room again! I can't wait to take my husband and boys here, The Shroom Room has got a perfect combination of healthy, flavoursome food and a relaxed atmosphere that is popular with locals and visotors alike.
