I was here with a friend on a sunday morning and the wait wasn't too long, around 15 minutes or so according to my friend, i was running late, oop! the cafe was in full swing already and as soon as you walk in you are greeted by their open kitchen, a row of seatings and a lovely sun bathed dining room. i felt right at home. furnishing is sparse but thats hwat i like. simple and understated.
the sun bathed dining area. get your vit D without the melanoma!
The sweets corner. its right next to the register, was so tempted to take something home!
The menu was short and sweet, which is good for someone like me, because my decisionphobia can come out any moment and annoy the most paitent waitstaff!
i opted for the House- cured salmon hash with pearl shallots, fried buckwheat, poached egg and fresh herbs. how was it you may ask? it was egg-cellent! the poato hash was perfectly cooked and flavoured, the house cured salmon was to die for and need i say more about a perfectly poached egg?
check out the egg porn!
My fellow diner opted for the eggs benedict. it came out as two crispy toasted muffin halves with a decent amount of Black Forest gypsy ham, poached eggs and a generous dollop of Hollandaise sauce. again it was simple yet delicious, i think i could eat something like that everyday! ( my breakfasts are pretty boring, generally liquid breakfasts thats why i could eat cafe food every breakfast!)
wew also ordered some drinks but we didn't get them until 20 or so minutes after they cleared our plates and were offered the bill twice. I know they were really busy but maybe more co-ordination with the kitchen would be good. that was probably the only downfall tho!
i opted for the iced-coffee. and as soon as it arrived, i was disappointed because i could tell it was too milky already. and the coffee taste was a tad too weak.
the friend opted for a latte, and she said it was good but would of been heaps better if it came before the food.
As this visit was a while ago, i trust they have improved their service and the menu has changed quite a bit, i do home to pop in there before work one morning and try it out!
