What makes the difference at your local cafe?
Have you or do you enjoy eating out by yourself? Recently, I found myself in this position of finding somewhere to eat but was flying solo this day. I was not close to home and looking for a place to eat when I came across this cafe, Same Same But Different. At first glance, it looked promising as it was adequately busy for a Saturday lunch.

Same Same But Different Cafe is located in along Oxley Road in Corinda and I was heading back to Oxley from Indooroopilly shopping centre to watch my son play Futsal.

Being not used to eating alone, I walked in and was greeted by friendly staff who said that I could find anywhere to sit and they would be right over with the menu. I found a window bench table looking out onto the street where there were some newspapers to read if I wanted to.

The staff were quite prompt with the menus and I was left alone to decide what I wanted to eat. The menu offered a good variety as they served "All day" breakfast meals and "All day" lunch meals. Tempted by a second breakfast, I couldn't resist the Warm salad of honey roasted pumpkin, baby carrots, chargrilled radicchio, panfried halloumi, pumpkin sourdough with smoked almonds and a sage nut butter dressing for $17.

I sipped on my Dirty chai ($4.80) while reading the newspaper waiting for my meal to arrive. It also allowed me time to look around and observe the local crowd eating at this cafe. The atmosphere was quite relaxed and laid back with different groups of people from a table to five guys next to me, to a mum and her two children enjoying lunch, to couples and groups of women friends catching up. It was a friendly feel. The interior of the cafe was light and spacious with different table combinations.

My meal arrived in good time and I was happy with my choice as it was full of colour and fresh vegetable and flavour. Yes, very satisfied with my lunch and the serving size was very generous.
Same Same But Different Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating and also caters to the takeaway coffee crowd.
