Couple of my favourite cafe’s in July!

There’s never really a shortage of cafe’s in Sydney. However there are a couple of places that I have gone back regularly in July and thought it was worth mentioning again. In no particular order…

Clover – a favourite of ours, we have been here numerous times since my last visit in November 2010. I love the friendly atmosphere, the food stupendous and consistently good! ‘The Mother’ and I were catching up with a couple of our friends who lives in the area. I won’t go into too much detail of each food, the picture pretty much speaks for itself.

‘The Mother’ had the lamb eight eggplant, couscous, spinach eggplant – full of flavour and the lamb incredibly tender.

The special of the day was the lamb shanks served with figs and yogurt and wow! This was my first encounter with lamb shanks and I LOVED it! It didn’t have that smell or after taste, the lamb incredible succulent and just fall off the bone. The figs, a wonderful complement. I came back about two weeks later and had the exact lamb shanks again!

The salmon salad served with poached egg was also good. Thought the salmon was a little on the dry side, but loved the oozie egg!

Last time we were there, we got these wonderful complimentary brownies with walnuts served with ice cream and berry compote.

Cafe Ish – a local, just around the corner! They have a new-ish menu and a new-ish website – pretty cool website!

Breakfast / Lunch: can’t start the day with macchiato coffee – love coffee art, and this was superb!
The breakfast trifle is one of my favourites – muesli, yogurt and berry compote – in my mind its ‘healthy’ and frigging tasty.

If you haven’t had Josh’s brioche – you are missing out! Brioche with Jam – loved the texture of the brioche, so smooth and creamy and the jam… fantastic!

You can’t go wrong with the wagyu burger – I know Uncle loves the burger here.

However, that day he ordered the Ai’s frigging awesome chicken – lots of flavour, lots of garlic and comes with miso soup.

You can now order the famous and my favourite ribs of all time, beef ribs for lunch. Serves with rice and miso soup. Because I love the rib so much – I could definitely have two servings!

Here’s another close up of the magnificent ribs!

And of course, the famous soft shell crab omelette – need i say more?

For dessert, if you want something sweet – sponge cake – fluffy, moist, check out the cream and jam!

Dinner: Lamb cutlets with panko crumbs – LOVE! The crumbs deliciously crispy and lamb cutlets deliciously tender.

Fried chicken wings – crispy skin and finger.licking.good! (damn I lost the frigging photo!)

Ai’s frigging awesome fried chicken – again lots of flavours with garlic – I still do prefer the fried chicken wings though!

My favourite – the dinner version of the beef ribs! I went with three other people, so four of us, we had TWO SERVINGS! yes… greedy much?

Le Monde: another favourite of mine! The daily specials changes… daily! I have been waiting for the pork belly to resurface but it hasn’t. The salads here are amazingly tasty, light but yet filling. The breakfast divine. However, one of the standouts I had is the zucchini fritters with smoked salmon and spinach – DELICIOUS! Make sure you wait for it to cool before putting a large chunk in your mouth! Burnt the top of my mouth as I was hungry and it looked stupendous, and it was!

The veal osso bucco pasta was good, although we both agreed that the pasta can be cooked a little bit longer! Otherwise, excellent!

I was curious to see how many cafes I keep returning, and the above three got loads of love in July! Will do a August next month and see. Is there a cafe that you keep going back too?
