Melinda's Biscotti

A biscotti factory in a business park may not be the obvious choice for brunch but then again Melinda Cownden is not your average entrepreneur. Her success story is a remarkable one. She started selling her biscotti to family and friends, moved on to local coffee shops and then expanded to grocery stores. Demand grew so much she and husband Alun Hodgson started up this commercial production bakery and added a cafe at the front. She writes, "Dreams are built on hard work and dedication and the team at Melinda's Biscotti is happy she never gave up."

I try the Green Goddess Bennie (pictured here) - avocado, poached eggs, pesto hollandaise on an English muffin - with hashbrowns on the side, $12.95. Not an obvious flavour combo but truly delicious. Hubby opts for the Breakfast Burrito which is packed with veggies, scrambled eggs and cheese, $9.25, and is equally tasty.   Add two bottomless cups of coffee, tax, tip and special deal on a six-pack of assorted biscotti = $40. Recommended.
