Whenever new cafes pop up around Kingsland, our ultimate cafe-lurker, Innie, seems always the first to know. The likes of Denizen and Gather & Hunt have had their share of raves and of course, we're not ones to be out of the Loop (see what we did there)? Bear with us, though ' the review is gonna get better. White wooden walls and old-school chairs, wooden accents and succulent terrariums ' nothing satisfies us more than minimalistic, rustic decor like this. Katie recommended their thick-cut chips - though we'd probably christen them 'crispy potato chunks' due to their size ' they've got parmesan all over them (god-of-carbs have mercy), though that's not gonna stop us from an encore. A bit on the pricey side but we likey.
Louise had chicken kebabs and a mocha. She said, 'Love the space, the décor, the cupboards, the loos, the coffee and the company. Only improvement was that the satay sauce could've had more kick but otherwise happy.'
Innie had the mushroom risotto and a latte. She said, 'nice, clean, simple and spacious!'
Katie had the sirloin steak sandwich, twice-cooked chips, caramelised onions, tomato + onion salad. She said, 'Everything was perfect' from the medium-rare sliced sirloin to the mustard-aioli to the white décor to the succulent terrariums. And the chips, oh the chips! I am so becoming a regular.'
Mel had the chicken skewers and a strawberry and kiwifruit juice. She said 'Interior was relaxing, music slightly too loud at times for conversation. Food was lovely, the 'Small Plates' portions I didn't think looked enough, but it was actually just right! I happily would dine there again.'
Joe had the sirloin steak sandwich. He said, 'Could do with a heat pump. Chairs were pretty uncomfortable too.'
