There is tucked away, and then there is practically hidden from sight. Hello, Yes is of the latter kind. I would never have found it, or even dared to venture into it, were it not for some great reviews and it's staying on Urbanspoon's Talk of the Town list for quite a few weeks. A huge, renovated garage on Eliza Street (off Waymouth Street) serves as the location for the grunge/artsy/eclectic eatery, including a decapitated baby head hanging on a chain smiling eerily as you order.
The menu is nothing spectacularly different from other breakfast and lunch places but there are enough choices to keep me interested. Breakfast is all-day (always a good thing) and they have quite the list of teas, both hot and chilled, to choose from.
|Good Doctor's Breakfast: tomato relish, chorizo, spinach, haloumi cheese, sourdough & dukkah-dusted eggs ($13.00)|
|The Thing: pickled cabbage, green apple, pastrami & whipped feta on sourdough ($9.00)|
|Iced Apple Green Tea: $5.00|
Not bad, but not anything spectacular. It's a pretty chilled out atmosphere and the service is friendly - the waitress even let me choose another drink of any cost as they had run out of my original order, coconut water. I really want to like this place and some of the other food options - the chorizo burger, stuffed mushrooms and the handsome fellow (bagel) - sound enticing so hopefully I'll be more impressed next time!
