3.42 'Grande coffees & warming meals'
Good morning Globe. It was horribly cold and rainy today. Which is why it was such a treat to sit inside your warm cafe, at your window bench, with a (huge) hot coffee in hand, whilst looking out at the rain, pelting itself down on Coogee Bay Road. Turned out lots of other people also thought they'd find sanctuary in your midsts. You were heaving with wet, cold, hungry, rejected beach-goers. And somehow, you managed to quickly cater for us all. I had your 'love eggs' for brekkie - lame name, but filling dish. It had poached eggs and bacon; tomato salsa and avo; aoli and spinach; all piled on top of your sourdough toast. I couldn't finish it. It was huge. Especially when coupled with your large cappuccino. Wowsers. Your cutlery was fairly useless and didn't entertain me with fancy trimmings or originality. But, that's cool, I was satisfied enough to be warm; dry; and pleasantly full.
Coffee: 3.5 Your coffees were huge. And tasty.
Eggs: 4.5 Perfectly poached.
Toast: 3 Chunky sourdough.
Knife: 2 Terrible knife. Terrible.
Ambience: 3.5 You were rather busy. But your service kept up well. I don't remember hearing any groovy music or noticing anything particularly exciting about your features. You were just a simple well rounded, well liked cafe.
