Over the past decade, we’ve watched Lidcombe evolve to become an exciting dining hubs. There are loads of restaurants to choose from, predominately Korean, but recently there’s also been more cafes open up in the area too. This is always extra exciting for us, because it means a new spot to enjoy our favourite meal, brunch. We recently visited The Smelly Cheesecake for the first time, intrigued by the name and the beautiful shop front.

The Smelly Cheesecake has a focus on cheese – both sweet and savoury. The breakfast dishes we ordered had an obvious and delicious element of cheese on them. The Brekkie Burger (grilled bacon, fried egg, avocado, lettuce and cheese on cheesy olive brioche served with chips) was oozing with the melted cheese and also had a garnish of feta and jalapenos that could be enjoyed with the chips or added to the burger for an extra kick. This dish got a thumbs up from Ethan.

I ordered the Brekkie Pan (grilled veggies, fried eggs, bacon, American sausage with fromage dips on toasted sourdough). This dish was really unique, something I have never seen before. It presented very impressively, though some of the elements weren’t quite to my taste. These were the type of sausage used as well as the fromage dips (this is because I was expecting them to be cheese, but it was a tomato and olive salsa and some sliced avocado). But in saying that, I still did enjoy this as it was loaded with a big range of grilled veggies, and not just the tomato and mushroom I’m used to seeing on a breakfast plate. The veggies included snow peas, carrots, pumpkin, brussel sprouts, green beans, zucchini and broccoli. These were delicious alongside the sourdough, feta and perfectly fried eggs. It’s nice to see a local café think outside the box with their breakfast menu.

After my coffee (okay, I mean coffees) and Ethan’s strawberry gelato thickshake, we had to order dessert. After all, we were at a cheesecake café! I ordered a slice of white chocolate cheesecake and Ethan went for the chocolate mousse brownie. Both were as rich, sweet and chocolatey as you could imagine. The cakes aren’t made by the café, but they are made fresh and delivered to the café from their supplier daily.

The Smelly Cheesecake also offers full size cakes to take away as well as a range of grab and go lunch options - I was eyeing off the cheese toasty on the way out! It’s a lovely addition to the busy Lidcombe town centre.
