Cafe Columbus Mitre 10 –
Reviewed by Karen, January 2015
This cafe is part of a franchise and located within the Mitre 10 garden store. They have a huge range of food including a kids menu, blackboard menu, gluten free, Paleo, refined sugar free, raw and dairy free, counter food for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a coffee and a small bite to eat. It’s nice to have a cafe where you can go shopping afterwards.
The service was fast given how busy the place was.
The food was plated up nicely, and the garnish of parsley sprinkled across the bene added visual appeal.
The Benedict – was delicious. You had the option of salmon or bacon.
The eggs – the free-range eggs were slightly overdone, but also still runny enough.
The bacon – was cooked perfectly, had great flavour and there was a good quantity.
The spinach – came with the dish at no extra cost! It was wilted just right.
The hollandaise – very much doubt this was homemade.
The bread – was good.
Would we go again?
Yes we would.
