A couple of years ago when it became the new craze, I thought to myself that I’d wait until they hype died down.. But it never did and after finally getting to visit for lunch today- I don’t think till die down for a long time to come.
My gosh- SO MANY CHOICES! All variations of similar things burgers/breakfasts/sandwiches but man is it hard to choose.. As a vegetarian this is a rare moment and arrives as much of a delight!
I went with the girls from work, so that we can have a good old goss during our lunch hour. The service is quick, the staff are so lovely and the food is oh so good!!
The highlight of my day was the salted caramel milkshake! Having given up on the idea of eating healthy I quickly substituted my green smoothie for a regular coke. And then I saw the milkshake- so ordered one with 5 straws so I share the calories (although I dont think i shared much of it!)
I ordered a When Halloumi met Salad veg wrap.. And then encouraged my carnivorous friends to order the veggie pancake breakfast meal and the avocado with poached eggs on toast. See what i did there! 2 of my friends were a bit more stubborn and had their meat meals- so we wont talk about them! But they were very pleased with their choices as well!
The wrap was very filling and I ordered a side of fries to go with it (totally unnecessary but my boss was paying so what the heck!)
The portions are full American size so a 1/4 of my way in I was stuffed- and the rest of the afternoon was spent in a food coma!
The Halloumi was perfectly done, and the wrap was filled with spinach and mushrooms and all sorts of tasty stuff. YUM!
The breakfast pancakes were good too, the veg sausage was delicious and the scrambled eggs were creamy perfectly done!
I was too full to try the avocado and eggs- but Adriana, my colleague is a trusted mashed avocado connoisseur and she said it was gorgeous!
Its a little bit pricey, but its not a greasy spoon café and it was very fresh and generously served.
They had a great selection of alcoholic drinks (awesome bar downstairs) and as well smoothies and juices to choose from.
Id rate it a solid 4 out of 5 and the service gets a full 5. (Ive knocked off one point because the chips were not the best).
Its a casual, fun place to visit and ideal for a brunch catch up with friends. They definitely have my vote.. And i know exactly where I’ll be headed next time I have a dirty hangover!
