Have you heard the goss about the cheap and tasty food?

On a lazy Sunday morning driven by pangs of hunger, as we looked for a place to finish the delightful task of having breakfast, my eyes fell on a little café named Hot Goss Café. Feeling adventurous, I ventured inside followed by my entourage of my boyfriend and two of his friends.

A smiling waitress welcomed us warmly and handed a humble menu to each of us while informing us about the sitting arrangements in the back of the restaurant. Wishing for some fresh air and to be free of the confined space of the tiny café, we walked towards the back of the café and occupied a nice table at the corner. On our way out, we noticed a clean kitchen and a clean toilet which earned Hot Goss some instant brownie points.

A quick glimpse of the menu informed me that Hot Goss offers all day lunch together with breakfast. The offerings are quite limited but include the usual favourites like the big breakfast, eggs benedict, eggs florentine and so forth.

Our decision-making process was significantly simplified by the unpretentious menu and we soon placed our orders at the counter. As we waited for our food to make their appearance, I took in the surroundings noting that there are heaters fitted to the umbrellas towering over the chairs. People were having a hearty time enjoying their food while revelling in delightful chitchats.

Hot Goss Café: Mocha


Our food arrived after approximately 20 minutes. My pancake was simple yet nicely designed and was served with vanilla ice-cream and maple syrup. Valued at $7.50, the pancake was cheap and flavoursome. The ice-cream and the maple syrup beautifully complemented the thin and fluffy pancake.

My boyfriend had the eggs benedict which comprised of bacon and poached eggs on toast covered in gooey hollandaise sauce. A simple dish which was elevated from simple to savoury by the addition of the yummy hollandaise sauce. Another friend had the eggs benedict with extras of kransky and bacon while the other friend savoured the big breakfast but added hash brown to the offering. The mocha was nice and the freshly squeezed orange juice was quite refreshing.

Hot Goss Café: Big breakfast


While putting down our coffee and drink on our table, the waitress profusely apologised for the lengthy delay elaborating that they were short of staff which contributed to the delay. As a gesture of goodwill, the waitress handed all of us a free coffee offer each for our next visit. Needless to mention, we were surprised and smitten by such wonderful customer service.

We had a lovely lunch at a very cheap price topped with fantastic customer service. Hot Goss Café is a modest little café which offers good food at a cheap price. By no means trendy, hot and freshly cooked food in conjunction with warm customer service makes this place inviting and delightful. Oh, and if you do visit this café try to sit in the open backyard which provides an excellent ambience for a nice brekky or lunch over entertaining conversation.
