Neat little cafe in Randwick with nice large open windows. They have been trading since 2008 and still going strong.
Indoor and outdoor seating available. Doris who is the owner cooks tasty dishes in their little kitchen, whilst her husband tends the coffee machine and helps wait the tables. Additionally, all the muffins, biscuits that you see she makes most of them herself! Pretty nifty!
Went in with a group for brunch and got to try the following
-Ricotta pancakes with maple syrup & walnuts,
-Good fat of sliced avo on toast with fetta and tomato,
- The stack which was the mild corn chill fritters and the
-Mushrooms, spinach, chickpeas with balsamic reduction and poached eggs.
Ahhh yum! I couldn't decide which one was my favourite as they were all nicely done. Coffee was good, on the bitter and strong side so not for the faint hearted!
Friendly staff and Doris and her husband came out to say hi. Def one of those cafe's you go to sit, eat, drink coffee and have a read of the local papers
ALL YOU CAN EAT PIZZA & PASTA $20
That is correct, all the pizza and pasta you desire can be found at this place! Coming up to their 2nd year anniversary, I question myself as to why I have only found out about this place and why I am only visiting in the year 2016!
Arrived around 6pm and place was all set up and ready to go. The table is one very big communal table but wide enough so you're not listening in on other peoples conversations. For a drink with started with an Aperol spritz - very refreshing as you want something light with all the carbs you are about to devour!
Basically the concept is you have a little wooden token that has green on one side, red on the other and white in the middle. You turn it to red when you wish to "stop" and on its side to white if you wish to "pause" and of course green is GO GO GO aka feed me!
The selection of pizza's we tried were parmigiana, sausage, mushroom, cheese with spinach and pepperoni. Then for the pasta we had pesto with linguine, four cheese gnocchi, spaghetti, puttanesca and so forth. Only reason I remember is because I took photos. It becomes a blur after the 4th pizza or pasta.
Did I mention you get a bowl of cheese to share with only 1 other person? Yes, I tend to have pasta with my cheese! The pizza's themselves come on a nice thin and crispy base which is great as you won't fill up quickly.
Johnny who is the host and one of the owners is very hospitable and encourages you to eat more even though you clothes are about to burst at the seams!
Overall, it was a great first time visit and I love this concept. You know sometimes when you have to choose either pizza or pasta you find it hard to decide - here you can have both!

I like trying new things, visiting new places and going on food adventures. I keep it short, simple and sweet!
