Drop Down to Drip
Coconut pancakes were elegantly stacked on the plate, drizzled in salted caramel sauce, topped with hazelnuts, bananas, and freshly whipped cream. They were soft and fluffy, the perfect pancake. For weeks and weeks, I had passed by the Drip Expresso cafe, watching as an enchanting coffee aroma and the taste of delicious pancakes filled the little space. Eventually, Drip's unique decor and good food tempted me as I passed through their doors.

Immediately as I entered the cafe I found myself amused in the stores unique decorations. The unassuming little shop supports a variety of posters that cover the back wall, and moving further into the store I was able to enjoy their outdoor seating. Hanging from their walls was a row of interestingly decorated plant pots, using old wooden chairs. A water feature sat beautifully at the end of the tables. Drip Expresso was both interesting to the eye and very calming, allowing anyone to enjoy a warm cup of coffee.

Quickly after ordering and settling into the inviting outdoor space, we received our breakfast. My mother, who ordered a delicious Brookfarm muesli with greek yogurt and berries, eagerly enjoyed her meal, claiming it was both a very sweet and healthy option, while I received my stack of warm coconut pancakes.

Unfortunately, this is not to say that the store is without flaw. The space was a little too small for comfort in the front room and the coffee was only mediocre at best, as it was too strong for my personal preferences. However, for those of varying tastes, spending $3.80 on a cup of coffee might just be the perfect thing.

Considering Drip's cheap prices, the quality of the food came at a big surprise. The pancakes and muesli both were only $12 each and were well worth the money spent. The service was also quite credible, being both kind and helpful. So if you're looking for a good brekkie and a cheap cup to sip, drop down to Drip.

It has nice tables outside. It looks like granite...?

They look like they are very generous with portion sizes too; that stack of pancakes is huge.
