Come up for coffee air at Two Teaspoons
Beyond the DFO and home furnishings centre, lies a Jindalee gem of a café. Located just across from the Homemaker Centre off Goggs Road, Two Teaspoons provides a caffeinated- rush of reprieve, an all-day breakfast menu and the promise of excellent coffee.
The ambience is bright and airy, with plenty of options for a large morning meet-up group or a quick coffee catch-up party of 2. The al fresco sitting area is littered with stylish stools and comfy couches
Personally I tend to judge a café by its sweets and cakes selections. And even at 9 o'clock in the morning, the display fridge was already chockful of various slices, tarts and cakes with plenty of gluten-free options, and all made fresh on the premises. At first I was tempted by the macadamia, raspberry and white chocolate blondie, but as I took a quick glance at the breakfast menu I could already hear the banana bread calling out my name. It came with a choice of toasted with butter i.e. simple, or ricotta, honey, blueberries and strawberries i.e. sinful. Well, for me, it was really a no brainer.
My go-to cuppa has always been a flat white. And my coffee here was good with the right ratio of bitter : non-frothy milk. As for the banana bread, it was the bells and whistles, so to speak, that totally turned what would've been a healthy (ish!) breakfast into a sinful, almost-meal in itself.
Two Teaspoons ticks off many of my cafes checklist: cosy ambience, good, freshly made sweets selection, great coffee. So anytime you're in the area homeware shopping and find yourself waist-deep in lounges and dining sets sales, come up for coffee air at Two Teaspoons.
