Unpretentious cafe, Cossies Cafe, Surry Hils

B and I were catching for brunch. We were originally going to go to Café Sicilia, a newly opened café on Crown Street, Surry Hills just opposite Tabou (which is now closed!). B and I perused the menu but nothing on the menu grabbed us so decided to waddle down and found Cossies Café.

It’s a small cafe, the place was relatively empty when we rocked up a little before midday but it did quickly fill up afterwards. The place is very cozy, unprentious and very welcoming.

Started with strawberry and guava frappe – very subtle guava flavour, it was delicious and absolutely refreshing. B had their coffee and said it strong, and aromatic.

B had the granola served with yogurt, berries and rhubarb compote ($10) – hmhmhm rhubarb!

I opted for something more substantial, salad nicoise with grilled salmon, olives, green beans and poached egg ($14.50). The salad was fresh and excellent, the dressing delightful. My only gripe would be the size of the grilled salmon! I had expected something a little more substantial, however, it was cooked to perfection – medium rare and scrumptiously tender.

This café is very humble, unpretentious and with very simple decoration. Don’t be put off by its humbleness, the service and food is very good! Moderately priced and is extremely busy on the weekends.

    I used to love the chicken burgers here – haven’t been for ages though. Perhaps next time the markets are on 😉
