It’s been a long time since I had brunch.
The speciality here is actually the coffee and not the brunch food but there’s no harm trying anyway.
I’m not a die-hard fan of coffee so coffee to me is just like any other beverage. Amongst the various types of coffee, I prefer cappuccino as I like the foam.
The theme of this café is rustic and shabby. The indoor area is very limited but they have more seats outdoor. As the weather was warm, I chose to sit indoors.
The prices on their menu are nett.
Long Black ($4.00) and Cappuccino ($4.50)
Pancakes ($10) with grilled tomatoes ($1.50)
Served with strawberries, honey and mascarpone
The pancakes were thick but not as fluffy as I would like. Not to say it was dense but I felt it could be airier.
In my opinion, I would rather have good old butter than mascarpone to spread on my pancakes, and I prefer maple syrup than honey in this context.
The grilled tomatoes had a charcoal grill taste but I felt it could have been grilled more, and they could have used a juicier variety of tomato.
Big L’s Breakfast – $15
The scrambled eggs were runny and soft but this was not the best scrambled eggs ever. The salad was drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. The toast was rather hard to bite. The sausages were normal but under those sausages were crispy streaky bacon which was sinfully delicious. But then again, anything bacon tastes good. The sautéed mushrooms were well seasoned and I like it.
Overall: the brunch fare is decent and they serve it all day till closing. I guess people come here for coffee rather, so if you’re a fan of coffee, do give it a try.
