This European style café is a ray of sunshine on Aberdeen Street in Northbridge; the bright red front sticks out like a sore thumb – but in the absolute best way possible.
You could be in Spain or Greece as you sit outside this little café watching the world go by. It just oozes sophistication and glamour in its design, but it's so casual and laid back - it's just perfect. Time stands still as you sit here with a lovely cup of coffee reading the morning paper.
The Breakfast menu is so reasonable from $4 for scones with jam and fresh cream to a full breakfast for just $12. The full breakfast is also available all day which is great for those nocturnal people that work at night.
The breakfast menu offers sizzling breakfast specials with stir fry beef strips with garlic fried rice or pork rissole with garlic fried rice, fried egg and toast.
The smell of freshly baked scones fills the café as well. These were not the perfect shape wrapped in plastic ones you can buy most places; these were freshly baked and still warm. It is served still warm with a little surprise of cream on the side, a really nice touch.
Make your own Sandwich station:
Have your sandwich made just the way you like it, and sit inside or outside in the alfresco area. The combination of soft and hard furnishings are really well done, its not all about squashing in as many tables as possible there is also somewhere to relax after a meal and enjoy a glass of wine.
It's also fully licensed from 12 noon, so you can enjoy your favourite beverage with your lunch or dinner.
The juices are made fresh from organic fruit and vegetables (no concentrates used) just good old fashioned juice made from all fresh ingredients.
The All-day lunch & Dinner Menu
So much to choose from; the tandoori chicken burger for just $12 sells out every day, then the American style pork ribs fall off the bone and are truly delicious and sticky as they should be.
