Ever since this cafe, opened by the people behind Papa Palheta, arrived on our local food scene, it has taken our brunch loving, coffee fanatic country by storm. And its not hard to see why they are so popular. Whats not to like about a cup of aromatic coffee in a reinvented rustic coffeeshop? It sure does help to have a name as cool as this.
I was so feeling the theme that day, I had to take some shots in black and white. This is one of my favourite.
Just like Papa Palheta, the entrance to the place is not at the front.
This is the Annex room where you can gather a group of friends and arrange for a coffee appreciation session. Pretty cool.
See the window grille pattern ? Brings back memories of my grandma's place.
Expresso with milk(regular) - $5.50
Their coffee is top notch. I dont usually drink coffee without the sugar, but for this i just want to take in the aroma and the aftertaste of the coffee. The highlight of the day for me. Nothing beats a good cup of coffee for brunch.
Hot chocolate- $6.50
K ordered hot chocolate as it is her favourite hot drink and she is forever on the hunt for the best hot chocolate. CSHH's hot chocolate was pretty good, with a subtle hint of mint.
A dish for the meat lover (points to K) !
Patrick's platter - $16
Pork Rilette, Duck terrine, Parma ham
K liked the duck terrine the most. Cold meats on bread for brunch is a first for us. Pretty interesting.
Pancake stack with blueberries- $10
Its funny how you add 3 berries and this dish becomes blueberry pancakes. Haha. I enjoyed their butter, its fragrant and smooth but I cant find anything special about their pancakes. Decent, but nothing special.
Breakfast in a cup - $8
I was hoping to be surprised by the 'breakfast of the day' but it turned out to be a tad disappointing. A pile of vegetables, some mushrooms and a soft boiled egg over the top and that was it. If you're there to try their breakfast of the day, remember to ask whats in it first.
I fell in love with the interior of the cafe. Captures so much of the past and yet feels modern. Extremely well done, I would say. The coffee, as usual, is top notch but the food pales in comparison. Given the price point of the place, I would expect the food to wow my tummy.
