I just want to say before I go and ruin everything, I actually really really like Hoochie Mama. Because, I mean, what a groovy name for a café, right?? Ok, that’s not the reason. I like them because they have an awesome breakfast menu, they have loads of outdoor seating and actually, they have loads of seating everywhere so you always get a spot. And the food is very good.

But having just had Bill’s sweet corn fritters on the weekend, I don’t know what I was thinking going and ordering sweet corn fritters when I met an old friend for brunch yesterday. I mean, there is no comparison to Bill’s utter brilliance. Period.


So I met a friend for brunch yesterday. We shared the sweet corn fritters and the breakfast bruschette (served with ricotta, field mushrooms, roast tomato and avocado) which was divine and caught up on years of gossip on boys and work and boys and travel and boys and… yeah.

Don’t get me wrong, the sweet corn fritters aren’t bad or anything. In fact they’re really great with lots of sweet corn mixed with a tasty batter and then there’s the crispy prosciutto. Crispy prosciutto. Mmmmmm.

It’s just… not Bill’s.

They also make a mean chai latte! (and ricotta hotcakes but I haven’t tried those yet)

Panu gets back from two weeks in the States today! Woohoo! Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

  3. These corn fritters look great! I can only imagine what Bill’s are like 🙂
