Coffee and cake happy hour - who knew?
It can be exhilarating to try a new cafe, can't it? And sometimes liberating too, as it is so easy to fall into routine and bask in the familiarity of a favourite breakfast haunt. Do you keep revisiting the same cafe because it is so comfortable and easy to do so?
Surprise, surprise: I've stumbled across a new venue to catch up with friends for coffee, and it's right in my own backyard too.
Cafe Mila, is situated at the Horizon Shopping Centre, at 685 Old Cleveland Road East, Wellington Point. To be honest I've driven past on a daily basis but have never taken any notice. Shopping Centres tend not to inspire me in the least.
Stopping for breakfast this morning we were quietly surprised by the breakfast menu and just loved the 'Lite Breakfast Bruschetta', with grilled garlic mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, avocado and a poached egg on toasted Turkish bread, finished with a balsamic glaze. What a great start to the day!
The Breakfast Menu is available all day, though you can also enjoy brunch, lunch, or coffee and cake. Talking of which, between 12 noon and 2pm is Happy Hour - coffee and cake for $6.50. Now that's hard to beat, isn't it?
The decor is modern and tasteful, with indoor and outdoor seating, and warming winter knee rugs for those opting to brave the outdoors. With its location high on the hill it is expected that in hotter months the outside dining area would also catch the cooling breeze off Moreton Bay.
Complimentary newspapers are available for browsing, and high chairs are available for the little people. And here's something else: you can order your takeaway coffee and panini ahead by calling 3207 2714.
Opening hours for Cafe Mila are as follows: Monday to Saturday : 7am to 2pm
Sunday : 7am to 1pm
I can't wait to try lunch with changing specials daily. Anybody joining me?
