okra - feb 2012
So it turns out, upon a wee bit of bookface research, that Okra is not a cafe, it's actually an 'espresso lounge' - and yes thankfullly, its coffee does live up to its name.
However, tables, chairs, a toybox, garden, full breakfast and lunch menu and a choice of outdoor areas (including curious sparrows) definitely gives it more of a cafe vibe. Who cares about semantics though - it's one of our favs, the staff are always friendly and efficient, the food keeps us going back time after time and it's on Bartercard. A hat-trick for sure.
had the Chicken Bacon Burger and an Iced Mocha.'. She said 'I generally love Okra but today I wasn't as blown away - I had order envy (not their fault) and was distracted by the number of smokers in the outside areas (not their fault either). I'll be back though.'"
had the Vege Burger too and a Grapefruit Juice. She said 'Who needs a fancy cafe when you've got a great comfy neighbourhood one? You can turn up in t-shirts and shorts and feel don't under-dressed! I had a sip of Lou's ice mocha and I'm having that next time! Life is too short to only drink healthy juice.'
How good was it?
