When I was 15 I was admitted to hospital with ovarian cysts. While I was in there, my mum brought me a fluffy toy who I named Alowishus. I don’t remember where I got it from but I just loved the way it sounds. Alowishus…. 22 years on and I still have that fluffy dog somewhere…
So when I knew I was heading up to Bundaberg late last week for an unexpected overnight stay, I knew I just had to check out Alowishus Delicious, Gelato and Catering.
I’d heard it was a cute little place with great food, and with the growth happening up there I was keen to see what all the fuss was about, plus of course my connection with the name.
Located down a darkened court at the west end of the main strip, named Earls Court, Alowishus Delicious is on your left south of the court, and Alowishus Gelato and Catering on the right.
Open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner Alowishus Delicious uses only fresh local produce from Bundaberg farmers.
As it was a fly by trip, I stopped in for breakfast Thursday morning and was excited to see rows and rows of homemade lemonade and iced tea. The venue itself isn’t anything flash or big, but with a loft inside the cafe, it goes towards providing a super cute ambience and FREE WIFI!
As far as breakfast goes, I do have a tendency to stick to my favourites – what can I say, when I like something I stick with it.. scrambled eggs and bacon, hash browns (mmmm) but my absolute favourite would have to be eggs benny.. there’s just something about that creamy delicious hollandaise sauce…. drool
Anyway as i’m not a coffee drinker, I opted for one of their homemade peach iced teas and ordered their eggs benedict with bacon. Yes, sounds pretty ordinary I know, but after eating it I was so impressed. In fact I couldn’t even get through the serving. The sourdough was nice and crispy without being soggy from butter, the eggs were perfectly poached, the sauce creamy but not too tangy and sprinkled with dukkah – a tasty little surprise.
The peach iced tea, was AH-MAZING!!! When I was trying to get myself off my coca cola addiction, I started to replace it with various things, juice, water (although I already drank a lot), iced teas and mineral drinks. Peach iced tea was by far my favourite, and I’ve tried a shit load of different brands. Alowishus Delicious Iced Tea is for sure on the top of my list… I’m just pissed it’s a 5 hour drive away!
Now, even though i’m not a big fan of rules, getting gelato in the morning straight after breakfast wasn’t ideal and with a long drive back home takeaway wasn’t an option either… But as you can see by the below (they were just setting up) with over 60 Italian-style gelato flavours, Alowishus Gelato has got you covered!
Tasty food, friendly service – perfect for grabbing a quick lunch wrap (and iced tea) for work or catching up for brunch or supper (haha yes, I call a late dinner supper) with friends or even just grabbing a quick bite or gelato after a show at the Moncrieff, Alowishus is a BIG surprise.
Now I just need to work out how to get that peach tea into my fridge!
