The first thing that struck us on arrival was the vibrant spray-painting featured on the right wall. With their unusual obsession of using faux skulls as décor mixed with the aroma of toasted tacos, it's practically a Mexican psychedelia fest in this studio-looking café.
You'd have the option of being seated in the backroom (near the well-stocked toy box, snuggling on the couch) but the huskies managed to squeeze into the long table in front of the counter to check out the action.
They had a creative assortment of cabinet goodies including a jaffa brownie (with heaps of crushed jaffas sprinkled on top) and mouth-watering doughnuts. (Try the magic slice; try it, I tell you). Staff were chirpy and helpful, explained to us the assortment of jalapeno sauces they had (at the end though, all we understood was hot, hotter and hottest) – but the chutney in our meals packed enough oomph for most of us. Cutlery and platescame in the form of take-out boxes and plastic ware, might graduate to something more permanent in the future? We don't know, but we'll be back!
Louise had the Big Breakfast and a Mochachino. She said 'Like the cutesy, almost student flat feel. Appreciate the eco-style of the plates, but seriously frustrating and impossible to eat off. Wonder if they might follow the lines of Salvation Kitchen whom, after being called up on their paper plate sitch by the Herald, promptly switched to crockery ;)'
Innie had the Eggs My Way and a Latte. She said 'Unfortunately the poached egg wasn't quite my way; but did enjoy their hot mexican sauce!'
Katie had the Soft Taco with Fresh Market Fish. She said 'The flavours definitely got a punch in it, very crunchy salad, great for people who love spice.'
