I was quite tempted by the Lychee & Lime Long Iced-Tea, but I went for the usual skinny latte. The latte, which was aromatic and not too acidic, was borderline too strong for my taste. I would say it's one of the better ones I've had around Brisbane though. I had a difficult time deciding whether I wanted a sweet or savory item for breakfast. The sweet items were really tempting even though I'm a savory type of girl! Some of their dishes, like the French Kiss, sounded delicious, and was a mix between sweet and savory, which doesn't usually tempt me - but their combinations sounded too good! I ended up going for Harry's Hash, which includes a sweet potato hash with bacon, poached egg, wilted spinach, and tomato relish - as I was advised the French Kiss was a really heavy dish. For once, they didn't say "both are good!" That made me happy. I would have preferred my hash a bit more crisp on the outside, but it was still good. I'm not sure I thought the sweet potato and bacon combination was a match made in heaven, but the bacon had a nice crunch and was balanced out by the spinach and relish. I would give my dish a 4/5 for flavor, and 4.5/5 for presentation...
I tried also had a bite of the corn and fetta fritters (part of the Stone the Crows dish) and liked it a bit more than my sweet potato hash, as it was just a straightforward savory dish. I'd definitely like to return for some brioche and iced tea one day - and the service definitely doesn't deter me from doing so. The owner (I'm assuming) is really friendly, as are the others working at Shucked.
