Returning from a long trip, I finally decided to visit a local restaurant I had heard rave reviews about. The food was good, the coffee was better.
Located in Boronia, this a welcome addition to the local community. I love the fact that they support the local sporting clubs and for that I give it kudos! With ample of parking around the area, this makes for a comfortable meetup spot for anyone. Bonus points – it has enough space for Mum’s with prams. Definitely helps!
I ordered the chicken burger. Whilst I found the chicken to be a little dry, what I found more intriguing is the combination that they used.
Chicken Breast, Cos Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado Salsa and aioli.
The avocado and aioli was a great pairing and one that I can highly recommend.
Right, at $18.50 – I’m sorry, this burger wasn’t worth that price tag. I expect gourmet, next level items!
Admittedly, this is a cafe – so if I did indeed want to taste their fares, then I should have gone more for their breakfast than burgers. Besides, if you are hunting for burgers, then I highly recommend Mum’s Burger Kitchen which is just a couple of stores down in that row of shops.
The coffee on the other hand was smooth and creamy. If you’re driving through and need to make a pit stop – avoid the McDonald’s and get in here!
I loved the internal decor and the mood setting. Any time, a cafe plays music between 90 and 120 beats per minute songs, they have a win!
One word: No. I had to remind the staff twice about my order. First, they got it wrong and came 25 minutes later to double check it and then at the 45 minute mark, I had to get up and ask them for it again.
Sorry guys, but this definitely needs to improve.
