For all of you out there who consider themselves a self-proclaimed food connoisseur - or as I like to call it, a 'foodie' - then you will all understand the importance of the age ol' combo that is coffee and breakfast. Hand-in-hand, these two greats have the ability to make or break the beginnings of any mere mortal's day. So, upon hearing of a doin'-it-for-themselves cafe in the heart of West End, well quite frankly, I just had to get involved.
Cup, is a local coffee roasting cafe, who pride themselves on not only the quality of their coffee but also its sustainability. Using local dairy, personally sourced coffee beans, and a killer 'Slaver Express Machine', all of these made for one heck of a 'cup of joe'.
With their garage-esque inspired interiors, and the not-so-behind the scene's operations, you immediately feel involved in the 'Cup' way of things.
Needing my brunch fix to ease my woes of the night before, the menu offered a good range of the sweet and the not-so-sweet, with the average dish costing around $12. Ordering my latte and the 'Roasted Mushrooms' - this consisting of pane, asparagus, pacarino, field mushrooms and a poached egg, all strategically placed on top of the toasted sour dough - arrived before my very eye's ten minutes later, with less than a second, the plate was being devoured.
Satisfied and ready to then tackle the day ahead of me, I would recommend a good cup of, well, 'Cup' to anyone. Selling their five varieties of coffee beans on-site, you can afford to caffeinate the day away, everyday.
