Lovely view, good ambience. Seafood platter was good, but nothing to write home about, while the meat portion of the pork belly was unexpectedly dry. Great wine selection. Given the other reviews, perhaps I just got a bad lot of belly?
Came here for brunch Sunday morning. We found a table with ease which was a surprise and greatly appreciated as they were busy. Had a delicious ice chocolate to start. We then ordered some chips to share which took about 10mins to arrive and were steaming hot, as in we had to wait nearly 10mins for them to cool down and be edible. Same thing happened with my porridge, could not eat it for 10 mins as it was steaming. Better to be too hot than cold but it made us wait with food sitting in front of us. Food was average when we ate it anyway. Not bad but nothing to ride home about.
Requested for the 2 seeds expresso blend, it really goes well with the steam milk. You know that you are having a well crafted coffee once you take the first sip. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Can see why this place packs with crowds.
On the way to work, I decided to stop into Melba Cafe for a hot breakfast and was treated to delicious eggs Benedict with Manuka smoked bacon and berry smoothie.
Food delivery was impressive even they were busy and the service was fantastic.
Being Winter, I appreciated them keeping the doors closed and heaters were on to warm the environment.
Everything was delicious! I can't really fault either of our meals to be honest. I wish I had got the eggs benedict though, those hash cakes were amazing. The iced coffee was slightly bitter but that was a plus for me, it was so good and felt like a real coffee.
Love this place, so warm and well decorated. The food is very well presented, ever dish will make you fell like its Xmas. Love the refreshing house made apple and thyme soda. Try to avoid lunch time if you don't want to wait in long queues.
Fantastic suburban cafe just buzzing with locals, stimulating chatter, sideward glances at gorgeous dishes of food being served and amazing coffee to be enjoyed. Highly recommended with super friendly staff and delicious breakfast and lunch menu offerings. It's a must visit for when you're next in Ellerslie!
