Cafe Zoe, Surry Hills

Café Zoe is an old favourite of mine. I was catching up with B, our regular weekly catch ups, for brunch and I suggested this place. Café Zoe has been around for a while now, and can be found on Bourke Street.

The place was relatively quite when we rocked up at 11.45am. I was famished and in need of caffeine fix.

The coffee was excellent – smooth, aromatic and strong, exactly what I needed that day.

B opted for the muesli with yogurt and seasonal fruits and was served with a side of milk ($8.90). The muesli was nice but nothing special I thought, I have had better muesli.

I wanted something more substantial. I had the grilled chicken breast and roasted vegetable salad with wild rocket and walnut hummus ($16.90). It was a relatively large serving, the chicken breast was thin but surprisingly moist. I loved the different types of roasted vegetables, especially eggplant and beetroot. The walnut hummus was walnut-y, creamy and absolutely delicious. It was a wonderful complement to the chicken.

From memory, the sandwiches and baguettes here are wonderful. I remember having the grilled haloumi, tomato, fresh mint, baby spinach and eggplant baguette and loved it. Their breakfast, scrambled eggs are also good.

I love how the cool air comes into this café, they open all the doors and windows. The service is great and more importantly, great food and great coffee! Not to mention, fantastic company… as always!

    I’m not a big brekkie person – a bowl of Crunchy Nut will do me nicely thank you – but I work with a girl named Zoe! 🙂
