Faithful Kingslanders, you won't be no stranger to this quirky coffee-place. Boasting loud illustrations and their signature Whittakers Mocha (disclaimer: they did this long before the whole Whittakers/Lewis Road Chocolate Milk shebang), this is the place to be for that hangover brunch, or a pick-me-up before work. Their off-beat food presentation style is something to be envied - the table next to us had soft-boiled eggs served on a torn-off egg tray on a wooden platter of whole-grain toast and we don't think we could pull off that level of mastery at home! The staff as usual were terribly cool and were quick to get our orders to the table. Love love love.
Louise had the pig in a bun with avo and a mocha. She said, 'Bacon and avo was freaking awesome though bun was a bit oily. Waitress would talk straight over everyone instead of waiting, even a few seconds, to be noticed. Coffee kicked butt, as always.'
Katie had the soft shell tacos with pulled pork, tomato relish, cabbage and red onion. She said, 'Mmmm loved that I could assemble the tacos myself and adjust the saltiness etc. Aw man, I need to be more critical don't I' the wooden blocks that the food was served on looks a bit tired.'
Mel had the shaky burger and a morning glory. She said, 'Enjoyed the relaxed feel, flavours were good especially the beef and cheese in the burger, yummy!'
Joe had the shaky burger and a berry smoothie. He said, 'Tasty, tasty burger and great personality. Should have been far busier for a Friday lunch!'
Annie had the haloumi and avocado on ciabatta and a chai latte. She said, 'Although it wasn't busy, the waitress was a bit impatient when taking orders and started clearing the table well before everyone was finished. The flavours were simple and well put together. The avocado wasn't fully ripe but the rest was tasty.'
