I love writing, art, music, food, finance, hanging out with my favourites & being a productive night owl.

A warm, sunny day called for some exploration. The chosen destination was Glebe and the aim of the journey, to locate a new establishment for some fresh flavours. It's always a gamble when it comes to deviating from the norm, however I'd never have discovered the myriad of fabulous places I am aware of today. Teru Cafe was another wonderful discovery in terms of taste, price, atmosphere, comfort and service.
We ordered an item off the specials menu, a chicken schnitzel sandwich which tasted delightful and fresh. The avocado fused beautifully with the chicken and the bread had a home-made taste to it. From memory, it was about $10 or so.
My parmigiana came in this cute little hot pot as depicted, and the two slices of bread were perfect to place the soft eggplant and cheese infusion. This was only $10, too, and filled me up very nicely.
The food tasted delightful and although I don't have it depicted, the coffee was more than acceptable, too. The pricing was very conservative for a cafe in Glebe, given its proximity to Sydney University and the CBD.
One thing I really felt was that the staff weren't fake at all. The lovely lady who served us was smiling genuinely and seemed to be really enjoying her job. I really liked all of the staff that I encountered, they just seemed to be really happy and nice. Another thing I noticed was that the restaurant owner treated his employees with a lot of dignity and respect. This emphasised the already high level of comfort, which was pleasant enough to make me feel like I was at home. The decor was very cute, as many things are in Glebe cafes. I hope to come back to Teru soon and recommend it as a nice alternative to other nifty little Glebe places.
