Sit back and watch Paddington strut by at this stylish little daytime venue. Anouk has perfected brunch, if the weekend queues are anything to go by. The ever-changing menu has all the good stuff - locally brewed coffee, free range eggs, and locally sourced seasonal produce.
Velvet seating and ornate mirrors - the former chemist has a whole new look
After a short wait (10am, Sunday), our party were seated in a velvet corner booth in the heritage-listed former chemist shop window. I loved my fluffy French toast with summer fruits and my daughter slurped her "real" strawberry smoothie in one delighted gulp. My husband had five spice duck on a bed of roasted couscous, almonds and cherry tomatoes, which was also well received.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
I read about all these great reviews about this cafe by some of my friends and on facebook, went with great expectation but come home with GREAT disappointment. Not only that, when I posted my review on their facebook page, they deleted it. No wonder all the reviews are saying good thing about this really ordinary cafe. The muffin we ordered was rock hard and cold, didn't even bother to warm it up. The hot choc and ice choc was really ordinary and way too sweet. The breakfast was something I can easily make at home. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. TRY GUN shop cafe which is much much nicer!!!
