After reading many reviews about this cafe situated in Redfern and hearing about a certain crunchy French friend I call toast, or toast I call French friend :P I finally got a chance to check it out!
The cafe was quaint and well lit and buzzing with happy chappies! We were soon attended to by a lovely waitress who put us down for a table. I wandered around the cafe, taking in the aromas of the foods, and spying through the cabinet filled with pink glazed donuts and other sweet delights!
Annnd hardly much of a wait later, we were seated!
Glen, the owner, came and asked us "Do you like fish?"
Here ya go he said and gave us a plate of Fish Croquettes ($3 each). These crispy footballs of perfection were stuffed with the most amazing creamy fish innards that when we bit into them, I was surprised at good they were!
Here it is, my Fried Tempeh, Asian-Style Pickled Vegetables, Sriracha and Lime Mayo ($12)
Firstly, the narnie bread was beautiful, To be honest, I thought that overall, the dish was quite bland.
The other Narnie we got was the Glazed beef brisket, slaw, gherkins, chipotle mayo ($14).
The slivers of beef brisket were super juicy and literally melted in the mouth and the slaw was a great contrast of textures. This dish was awesome.
And for the finale, the Crunchy brioche French toast with blueberries, yoghurt, roasted pecans and maple syrup ($14).
It was a huuuuge slice of brioche bread completely covered with crunchy bits and dipped into maple syrup with innards that were super soft and fluffy. The yoghurt and berries were a lovely finishing toouch!
This was the cool kids corner where all the cool kids hang.
