Little Cafe with Big Kick

Came for a coffee but couldn't resist staying for lunch. A new little local café has opened in Stanmore, and it's been well worth the wait, now that it's finally here.

The fit out is funky with plenty to catch the eye, as well as the full wall mural of, what else, a Little Mule.

We'd just popped in for a coffee, and an apple and berry muffin for the little tots, who were rather excited about sitting on coffee bag cushions on the window seat.

Then I noticed a sandwich on the menu that I simply couldn't resist - curried egg 'Mule Style', with Garam masala and served with pappadums. When it arrived, I was impressed - it was generously filled with the delicious egg mix, the roll was soft but strong flavoured bread, and the pappadums were in the roll, giving it a crunch and reminding me fondly of those chip sandwiches I loved as a kid (albeit a far more sophisticated tasting version). At $9.50, it's a meal, and even I was struggling to finish it (though because it tasted so good, I managed to force myself).

The tea came in fine china cups, and they had a range of herbals, though they clearly do a thriving business in takeaway coffees.

Fortunately for me it's my new local, but I recommend making the trip to see why this busy little café has become so popular so quickly. They say that mules possess endurance and sure-footedness, and this little café is exhibiting signs of both.

Looks like a very nice venue! I love the name. Will have to pop that on my list when visiting Sydney next.
