Healthy alternatives

Great breakie! I have a meal at Bittersweet each time I’m in Port Macquarie: they have awesome food from their cakes & slices to their breakfasts & lunches; the taste of their ‘home cooked’ fare is awesome! I love it! Today I had fritters on rocket with poached egg; beautiful! Highly recommended.
