replete providore

We found ourselves freezing our tits off on a ridiculous saturday morning. Having just purchased a few goodies from the collingwood farmer's market, we found ourselves starving, freezing and needing some good coffee. Luckily i had the answer: replete. I'm sure that almost all of you have heard of it and most have eaten there. it's something special in hawthorn. 'nuff said.

We ordered some coffees and then decided what to have for the main event. there was a nice omelette with chorizo, sundried tomatoes and other goodies that caught our eye. after looking through the lunch menu, we also got the pizzetta with artichoke, sopressa and other assorted bits and pieces.

The omelette was very good, but the pizzetta was not as good as expected. Next time, i think i'll just give up and get the hotcakes!

Oh, and if you're wondering, at the market i got some wild olives, and also some buffalo mozzarella for a salad with basil and tomatoes. end of story.

Sundried tomatoes are so alluring. And I love buffalo mozzarella. Olives - blek. :-P

yeah, kerri feels the same way about olives.
i ended up buying a 2kg jar of the little suckers and am slowly munching my way through them!

the mozzarella is really amazing, and, as usual, didn't get added to anything - i scoffed it all, sitting down and eating it with the olives.

there are better items to choose at replete, so i'll have to take more pics soon...
