Perfect place for when you want to eat out
In the prolific cafe scene of Sydney's Inner West, eateries need a point of difference that sets them apart from the rest. Great food and exceptional service top the list of expectations for diners and keeps them coming back for more. Hoochie Mamma is such an establishment.

Conveniently close to Sydney University, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and a short stroll from King Street, Hoochie Mamma has been in this area for several years. Its most recent owner, Jacky, explained that the cafe's name has remained with the eatery even when it has changed hands. He did not know where the cafe's name originated, apart from it being an American term. Hoochie Mamma is certainly not an American diner nor does it serve up starchy fast foods. This cafe has seriously good food.

Hoochie Mamma has a large indoor area as well as a comfortable outdoor setting. We arrived mid-morning and diners were already tucking into their meals. The friendly waiter showed us to a table and we perused the varied menu. Sheikaha's Bruschetta ($14.50) with fresh tomato, zataar, avocado, labneh and boiled egg was tempting, as was The Big Hoochie ($17.90) with free range eggs, bacon, pork sausage, field mushroom, roast tomato, hash brown and toast. My husband chose The Lumber Jack Omelette ($14.90) with chorizo, mushroom, parsley, feta and toast. When the meal arrived, the tones of Monty Python sang in my ear, "I'm a lumber jack and I'm okay..." My husband nodded his approval for this very thick, very tasty omelette, commenting that the feta added a nice texture and wonderful flavour to the omelette.

I ordered All The Buzz Buttermilk Pancakes ($16.50) which were stacked high with three light and fluffy pancakes with honeycomb butter on top and scattered with fresh strawberries. These pancakes were absolutely divine. A small pot of maple syrup was on the side but it wasn't necessary. The pancakes had a delicious flavour on their own. The waiter informed me that a dash of orange juice is added to the pancake mix.

We also enjoyed two lip-smacking cold drinks, a Cocoberry Smoothie with mixed berries, acai, coconut and milk ($7.00) and the Fruit Splash ($6.50), a fresh juice with pineapple, orange and passionfruit. The smoothie was thick and very tasty and the juice was fresh and delightful. Hoochie Mamma also serves up wine, beer and cider as well as house-blended coffee beans. My husband ordered the cappuccino and he said it was a great tasting coffee.

But wait, there's more! Their sweets were particularly tempting with the likes of Hoochie Muffins ($3.50/$4.50), Paleo Ferrero Rocher ($5.00) and Persian Orange Cake ($4.80). My husband chose the Nutella Brownie ($4.50) which was deliciously dense and tasty. I chose the Raspberry Pistachio Friand ($3.80) which was beautifully moist and lighter than some other friands.

Hoochie Mamma make their own pastries and baked goods, there are plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options. If you're in a hurry around Newtown, they have a delicious range of rolls and sweet treats in the cabinet to takeaway.
