Trouble and Strife Cafe

Getting up to no good has never been more appealing
The Goodwood Rd Precinct is home to a great up-and-coming food scene just south of the city. Trouble and Strife has been open for quite a while now and has proven to be a welcome addition.

Nice little table flowers

While it is small in size, it's big in friendliness - the staff seem natural and come across like genuinely lovely people. The prices are also very reasonable.

Avo toast
'Mortgage Friendly' Avo Toast

Coffee is by Dawn Patrol and it hits the spot while not quite making it into my top few drops. Still, I always get a mug and it comes out looking great and does the job just fine.

Flat White - Hits the spot

Basically, when it first opened up I went a few times and they were still finding their feet and just needed to smooth out a few teething problems. After a brief hiatus, I went back and was so happy that they had managed to cure what ailed them.

Off the specials board - Pulled Pork Benedict

The food is tasty. Portion sizes vary dish to dish and also depending on whether you choose to add sides. The smashed avocado toast has peas and mint which give it a slightly different flavour to the usual citrus-tinge you find with smashed avocado and I find the departure from the norm very welcome. For $9, it doesn't break the bank either.

Not 'frittering' the morning away...

They have ever-changing specials - like the pulled pork benedict pictured, which was a little more expensive at $18, but well worth the price, I was assured by my dining partner. I opted for the fritters special and added avocado. Mine didn't disappoint either.

Recently, they donated all the money from coffee sales during a Saturday's trade to refugees in Syria after the devastation in Aleppo. It's things like this that show their kindness.

I really hope they continue to thrive as it's always nice to see good people do well.

Thanks Kathleen, it's good to read about the place. I wanted to go there a couple of weeks ago, but unfortunately it was closed at the time for a special event.

Wow, you can get really big portion sizes there. My stomach is bursting just by looking at the pictures!
