Don't you just love restaurants and cafes with quirky names? I spotted a sign on the Maroondah Highway for The Sitting Wombat, Espresso Café & Eatery. What could be a more enticing location for my morning coffee?
They offer one of my favourites - an all-day breakfast, but as I had a morning one at home I elected for a cappuccino and a small cake. The coffee was hot, as ordered, and the little cake was moist and delicious.
On my second visit, I opted for a take-away coffee, watching barista Jenny prepare it. It was hot as ordered, my one spoon of sugar was stirred as many take away coffees I have had just had the sugar spooned in and not stirred.
I even received a little bear biscuit with the coffee, the first time I have had one with take-away. They say it pays to advertise and I thought it was a nice touch with the café's logo on the takeaway cup.
