Vanessa: More often than not my Friday’s are spent with Bianca and Baby V eating and this particular one was no exception. Our dining destination for the day was The Galley at Sydney Boathouse in Rozelle. This casual dining spot is located on the pier and is definitely somewhere you need to know where to look for. Nestled amongst the boats and boasting both harbour and city views, the Galley offers diners a casual menu that can be enjoyed over breakfast or lunch.
With its beautifully appointed, relaxed interior and seating options by the water, The Galley makes for an ideal location to chill whilst enjoying your meal.
Coffee was, and always is, our first priority and we were impressed. Brewed well and full-bodied
The sun was shining bright for us that day which meant we had to be tactical in our menu choices in order to eat swiftly to minimise any “meltdown moments” we might encounter from Baby V becoming restless.
As we were dining early, we chose dishes from the breakfast menu. We can’t pass up a fritter and the corn & zucchini fritters ($18) were no exception. A generous portion with a whole half an avocado, poached eggs, haloumi and chilli jam makes for a substantial meal that encompasses many a breakfast favourite.
The Galley Toastie ($12) got a big thumbs up from us. Oozing with American cheese, this toastie is packed with ham, cheese, mustard, pickled gherkins and is delicious. The only unnecessary element in our opinion was the fried egg on top – we just felt it was a bit of a waste.
The French toast ($17) satisfies the sweet tooth but was pleasantly not overly sweet. Brioche bread with a chunky berry compote and topped off with maple ricotta and pistaccio praline makes for a delicious dish. I particularly like the maple ricotta which was different to anything I had tried previously, its a combination of two of my favourite things.
The Galley is the ideal location for a casual breakfast or lunch in a relaxed setting. The foor is reasonably priced and there is parking available with the first hour free.
