Next door (but one) to the Union Hotel sits Tee Geez. A safe haven from the perpetual bustle and fumes of Chapel Street, Tee Geez provides a wide selection of breakfast and lunch options, all bathed in a healthy dose of well-chosen classic rock.

Lauren, our gracious hostess, welcomed us with some complimentary water and a fresh squeezed juice that the Food Dude expects in good breakfast spots, then presented us with the menu. The Food Dude chose the Eggs Benedict, as he always does when he discovers this iconic dish on the list, but in this case he was particularly drawn to it because of the novel title: ‘Tee Geez Bennie,’ and I, eager to satisfy my English roots, made a beeline for the closest cousin of the fry up: ‘Tee Geez BIG Breakfast’. The capitals were necessary, I soon discovered, when I was presented with a huge plate groaning under the weight of thinly sliced toasted sourdough, my choice of eggs, roasted cherry tomatoes, spinach, bacon and perfectly cooked mushrooms – I was in British heaven. A snip at $15, my breakfast successfully satisfied my full-English shaped hole without sending a year’s worth of grease shooting along my arteries. I wasn’t bogged down with huge hunks of bread, the tomatoes were excitingly sweet, and my eggs poached and peppered to perfection.

Food Dude devoured his Bennie with obvious delight and commented on the substantial slice of ham and thick Turkish Bread as the base, rather than the usual muffin, a spare slice came accompanied with butter to munch on (as if he needed it!).

Proprietor George Kozarevski, who established this popular eating and espresso spot several years ago, claims his place is successful because of great homemade food (his mum prepares all the salads fresh every morning and all the daily specials on the lunch menu) at real value prices!

Caffe Camardo coffee blend provided the ideal accompaniment to our brekkie, in the form of an initial latte and then a smooth long black with just the right amount of bitterness. I came away content and jolly, sufficiently fed and refreshed for my upcoming busy day. Food Dude finds Tee Geez, with George and Lauren, the friendliest in the Chapel Street strip in Windsor.
