This unassuming cafe seems to go slightly unnoticed on bustling Scotchmer St, and we were easily able to secure a table for 5 at 11am.
Whilst perusing the menu we ordered a round of coffees, which were promptly served and consumed. I was so happy with my cappucino ($3.30) that I immediately ordered a second! The only drawback here is that they do not serve skim milk, only full cream or soy. But hey, a little extra cream in your coffee every now and then is ok by me.
Three of us ordered the avocado bagel with lemon and black pepper ($7), with a side of cream cheese (additional 50c), and Hilary decided to be fancy with the smoked salmon, cream cheese, spanish onion & capers ($9).
What a perfect brunch this was! The lightly toasted bagels were perfectly crisp on the outside and super soft in the middle, and avocado with a fresh squeeze of lemon is one of my favourite combos, so that was a winner too. Hil assured me that her bagel was definitely worth a 4 out of 5, and could have only scored more brownie points with the addition of lemon as well.
All in all this is an awesome little cafe for a light brunch, with friendly, efficient staff, delicious food and a great relaxed atmosphere. We'll definitely be back, hopefully on a warmer day so we can enjoy the quaint courtyard!
