the cafe is what you'd expect of just about every other coffee joint: dark, eclectic, industrial and totally hipster. The fact that the facade is completely hidden speaks volumes as to its wannabe pretentiousness. But, at least the service was warm and smiley.
The menu's decidedly limited, with up to only 10 items available on any given day. Not a lot of choice, but heaven-sent for the perpetually-undecided. Please note that this is a cash-only establishment, so be sure to to pad your wallet accordingly.
1) Scrambled Eggs on Toast
($9): incredibly silky, but slightly undersalted. Add-ons like the juicy Pork Sausage
($4.50) and succulent grilled Portobello Mushroom
($3.50) made this a much more substantive meal option
2) Scrambled Eggs on Toast
($9): made vegetarian with half an Avocado
($3) and Portobello Mushroom
3) Brioche French Toast
($14.50): thick and fluffy and eggy and caramelised perfectly. This was paired with a softly braised green apple, grilled back bacon, a knob of hazelnut butter and sticky sweet syrup. An absolute must-try
4) U can ask for, off the menu Raspberry Jam
($2) and Fig Jam
($2) to spread atop the toasts. These were lovely, chunky and sweet.
($4.20): too milky and overwhelmed the coffee base
($5.50): essentially a hot mocha peppermint. This was like drinking a liquid form of After Eights dinner mints.So luscious.
7) Iced Ero Tea
($7+): an earl grey tea infused with fresh thyme - was a refreshing thirst quencher
