Pulling up to this humble little cafe on the side of Jervois Road, the first things to catch our eye were the stunning views of Herne Bay and a sizeable vege-patch next to the cafe's sun-drenched porch.
Not only is their menu entirely organic (queue guilt-free yumminess), their use of local organic Velvet coffee attracts a stream of loyal customers – we even saw a few climb in from a sneaky gateway hidden in the verandah! What really struck out to us as we filed into the boutique cafe is it's Alice-in-Wonderland-esque decor. Faithful to its quirky name, the cosy interiors were filled with an assortment of vintage chairs, funky water jugs and teapots and even playing-cards as table markers. Hit the mark for us design bunnies.
Louise had the Mushrooms on Toast with a Side of Bacon and a Decaf Mocha. She said 'Quite taken with various little bits and bobs around the cafe. Everyone's meals looked amazing and mine was especially delish - no order envy today! Experience let down by the waitress unfortunately, who we had to prompt to take our order and didn't smile once #badday.'
Innie had the Eggs Benedict with Spinach and Mushroom, and a Latte. She said 'The mushroom was a bit too salty...but loved their vintage plates! So I went to Kingsland market the next day and purchased some for myself. Now I just need to find the time and energy to actually cook something up!'
Katie had the Open Steak Sandwich. She said 'I loved the interiors with the ornate mirror and the elaborately-drawn menu blackboard behind the counter! The balsamic sauces with mustard seeds was scrummy with the hearty steak, with a fresh assortment of veges too so it packed a good crunch. Awesome concept for a cafe, would definitely go again!'
Mel had the Healthy Chicken Salad, a Lemonade & half of Chel's Pancake dish. She said 'The chicken salad I had was totally delicious, a lovely combination of fresh mixed salad, pine nuts, flavour infused chicken, and a hint of 'sweet' added by the cranberries. YUM! Also tasted the pancakes ordered for my 2-year-old - absolutely divine.'
