Tropicana Cafe, Coogee

Apologies for the lack of blog post. As some of you may know already, ‘The Mother’ and I are thrilled to announce that Dragon arrived on 10th April 2012. We are both ecstatic and looking forward to the years ahead.

This post is a little overdue, prior to arrival of Dragon, ‘The Mother’ and I went to Coogee. It was a beautiful Sunday and I wanted to get out of the house, go to the beach and have brunch. Coogee is not a place I go very often, I am not sure what possessed us to pick Tropicana, probably because it was busy and I was starving and didn’t feel like burgers at Moo – yes you heard me right!

From memory, there is another Tropicana café in Darlinghurst, but I am not sure if it’s owned by the same people. The menu is definitely different. Tropicana café can be found on the busy street of Coogee Bay Road, the place was buzzing when we arrived just a little past midday. We scored the second last table outside; it was just too nice to sit indoors.

We started with a juice and smoothie – I love a good strawberry smoothie.

‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the bacon and egg roll – there is something about bacon and egg rolls that he loves, even on weekends when we are at home, he would ask for me to make it. He said it wasn’t the best but it was still quite tasty.

I on the other hand opt for the breakfast bruschetta with tomato. It was indeed a generous serving – two pieces of toast, topped with smooth and silky scrambled eggs and diced tomatoes with feta cheese. It definitely hit the spot!

Service friendly and efficient, food felt like it was very home-made and generous serving at that. We, well I definitely left feeling very satisfied and very full.

After lunch, we had a stroll down Coogee beach, one of my favourite beaches in Sydney, and with weather as perfect as this in autumn, who can say no? I sure am going to miss days like this when we move to Hong Kong!

    Congrats on the Dragon Baby! The lighting in your photos is exquisite. You will miss this when you move to HK. I personally love green smoothies: spirulina and wheatgrass with frozen bananas and blueberries!
