Go for the toilet and the vibe

Bar at Gingers Coffee Studio

On a whim, we stop at Gingers Cafe. We are heading into town for the weekend, and need to stop our tummies grumbling. I have driven past the place a number of times, and it always intrigues me. The colour, the vibe, the furniture.

It looks like we are joining the 'in crowd'. Retro dressed people are huddled around a mish mash of tables, the air is warm, and the staff casual and friendly. And when I see the menu, I'm satisfied. Not sure what exotic ingredients they have in the mixed leaf salad that comes with cucumber and tomato though, at $18. I sip on my coffee, and turn the page.

Finding out my chickpea vego burger has sold out, devastated, I opt for the eggs on toast with avocado. It's a small serve, but does the job. The chicken salad my friend gets looks awesome. Big too, she can't get through it. Obviously, she doesn't have a stomach like mine - an empty land mine.

Going to the toilet is an adventure, as I excitedly tell me friend on return. Slipping out the back door into a courtyard of fake turf and essence of 60's era, I head to the, err, toilet. Behind the squeaky door is a room plastered with 40's and 50's newspaper. Now that's entertainment.

Must get myself back there, maybe in the evening, to try out one of their cocktails...

This place is not that great. Overpriced, food miss and hit and miss and unfriendly to those with gluten intolerances.

I've only been once, and although I thought for some dishes, it may be a tad overpriced, the atmosphere and ambience made up for it. I don't have any food intolerances though.

Gingers is a bit too expensive. Guess it meets a market, because it is often full. Noisy, - who ever said the economy is flagging? They forgot to tell the 25-35s who "do lunch" and coffee.
