Deus Cafe, Camperdown
I love bikes, motorbikes that is. The slickness, the versatility, the speed, and the wind blowing on my face and hair as I ride the bike. I know it can be dangerous but I love the convenience and well the speed! I do blame my Dad for this obsession, he used to pick me up from school on his motorbike when I was young in Indonesia. It was many years ago but funnily it is one memory that I do remember clearly. Owning my bike was my biggest joy, unfortunately, age and ‘mature-ness’ made me give it up.
Located on Parramatta Road, Deus Cafe has been on my place to visit for a while now, every time we drive past, I would say ‘let’s go there’. Not only to check out the bikes of course, but to eat. I love the long communal wooden tables, the warehouse feel and the large paintings and pictures inside.
B opted for scramble eggs with asparagus, mushrooms, avocado, bacon served with toast ($20). I have never seen B eat eggs, she usually always order muesli so this was a first! The eggs were creamy and the asparagus and mushrooms cooked to perfection.
I couldn’t go past the dill cured salmon and creamy scrambled eggs and brioche ($16). The scrambled eggs were oh so creamy, and the cured salmon with dill and watercress was a wonderful complement. The brioche absolutely delightful! It was a lot more substantial that I thought, and oh so delicious!
As always, it was lovely catching up with the lovely and gorgeous B. Unfortunately I didn’t have a look at the bikes that day, but did return a couple of days later with a fellow bike lover! Didn’t buy anything, although, was very tempted, perhaps next time!
Deus cafe is open for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday from 6pm onwards. The menu does look pretty tasty! Deus has opened another cafe in Surry Hills, it is a lot smaller, I have yet to visit but no doubt I will in the near future.
