The Mocha Green Café is quite small, and looks like the type of place where the only food on offer is behind the glass cabinet. However, they actually have an all-day breakfast menu, with all the usual café breakfast fare such from health-conscious muesli to hearty big breakfasts.
Breakfast from the Mocha Green Cafe.
I ordered the corn fritters, which came with poached eggs drizzled in hollandaise sauce and chopped avocado, tomato and onion. Eggs atop corn fritters was not the best combination, as there was nothing to mop up the runny yolks with. The dish, which included three fritters and two eggs, was good value at $12.50 (and worked out to be even cheaper with a Groupon). It was far too filling for a light meal, but it would be a winning hangover breakfast as it is substantial but not greasy.

My friend ordered scrambled eggs on toast, which were easy on the pocket at $7.90.

We both sipped on berry, banana and yoghurt smoothies alongside our meals. The smoothies were delicious and the perfect texture; the highlight of our trip to Mocha Green. Thicker straws for the smoothies would have been appreciated, but you can't win them all.
For the most part, the café was quiet and homely. At times it was hard to converse due to the noise of the blender and the heavy traffic outside. Other customers who came in during our visit appeared to be regulars, chatting with each other and the staff with familiarity.

I would recommend the Mocha Green smoothies without hesitation. The food is nothing to get excited over, although it is good value for money.
