Breakfast is from 7.00am and is served all day, along with a lunch menu from 11.00am. There is a housemade selection of cakes and tarts in the display cabinet at the counter. When I visited, there were some freshly baked muffins still sitting in the baking tin and they looked absolutely delicious.
Vegetarian and gluten free options are available. Everything is housemade and prepared by Chef Brad. The menu has a 'Peckish' selection and a 'Hungry' selection of dishes. The owner, Rob, explained that sometimes one may feel peckish but not very hungry so hence the two options and the choice of a single or double serve on some menu items.
Alter Ego & Co. Cafe, has a liquor licence so you can enjoy some wine with your lunch or any meal really. As their wine list states, 'It's 5.00 o'clock somewhere'. The wine list includes sparkling options, wine, beer, cider and a fortified muscat.
When I visited I ordered, Chef Brad's Pot Pancake in the small size. I couldn't finish it as it was quite filling. I was surprised when the dish arrived as I was expecting a traditional flat pancake. It was almost like eating a light and fluffy cake. The orange segments on top were quite refreshing. Luckily front of house Ruby, did tell me they were quite filling and I ordered the small.
My dining companion ordered a mushroom, haloumi, caramelised onion and rocket brioche breakfast slider. She commented that it was delicious although a little salty from the haloumi cheese and she wished she had ordered two.
The cafe has a lovely ambience and although not large has ample seating, with a seating area outside. We sat outside as it was a lovely mild day and admired the street art on the side wall of the Capri Theatre opposite. The stools outside had a padded cushion so they were quite comfortable.
