I decided to head into Dickson to try out Good Brother for brunch.  Besides with the locals, it isn’t a very well known cafe. It is kind of hidden around the corner towards the back near Barcode at the Dickson shops.

I love the cute chalkboards that are hung up around the place.

Good Brother counterThe all day menu is limited but includes the usuals such as muesli, french toast, egg and bacon roll, toasties, fried eggs and more.

Good Brother Dickson coffeeI ordered the salmon frittata with creme fraiche and toast ($17.90). This took quite a while to come out which was surprising given that it was Friday morning. There were quite a few groups of people walking in to get their morning coffees, but no one else but me was really eating.  The frittata was so light and fluffy. It looked quite big but as the waiter said, it was mostly all air. It was slightly overcooked as the bottom of the frittata was dry. The creme fraiche was the perfect accompaniment and you didn’t notice the dryness as much. The toasted sourdough was yum and I spooned bits of frittata onto it before taking a bite.
