A friend of mine was passing this little café when she noticed these chairs in the shape of shoes. She found it very bizarre, but it made such an impression on her that it made her stop to view them. At first, she thought it was a furniture store, and was very surprised to see it was a café. She immediately called me to book a "lunch date". The topic: Shoes and Café!
A wonderful indoor setting with walls lined with magazine dating back at least 50 years.
We arrived at Domain on Loch a little ahead of time. My girls settled into drinking a milkshake while I had a great cup of coffee. The owners of Domain on Loche had lined one section of the café with magazines dating back at least 50 years. It was definitely a conversation piece.
They had a wonderful outdoor seating area that was surrounded by plants, water features and garden ornaments. I could imagine having a late lunch in summer, while waiting for the air to cool. Unfortunately it was raining, so sitting outside was not an option.
The hardest thing we had to experience was choosing something off the menu. My girls were keen to try their hamburger; however I was a little apprehensive. I had purchased a hamburger from cafes before and was completely disappointed when we received a thin beef patty jammed in a bread roll. I was put at ease when I saw the plates of ample food coming out of the kitchen.
The Soup of the Day and a Burger in the Background
My girl's hamburger was nothing like our past experiences. In fact, I hope that all cafes follow the same recipe. The burger was a thick beef patty flavoured with greens, tomatoes and a magic "Domain on Loch" sauce.
My chicken burger was two pieces of chicken breast, salad and a wonderful sauce. My friend had opted for their soup which came with two pieces of home grilled garlic bread. Everyone was happy with their order.
If you pass a see a big shoe outside of a shop, then you have found Domain on Loch.
