Breakfast in Cabramatta

Some mornings, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, especially if we eat in Cabramatta.  Usually the place is noisy, crowded and colourful.  At 7am it’s the exact opposite, almost meditative.  The pace is slower and you do get a chance notice things you don’t when Cabra is busy.
