Cafe Berne prides itself as organic and allergy safe food, as well as all the food prepared on the premises.There is seating inside and outside. This cafe is spacious, welcoming and cosy. On the Tuesday morning of our visit it was not too busy. I would imagine this wee cafe could be bursting at the seams in the weekend with seating for only abut 30.
The service was quick and efficient.
Nothing about the plating of this dish but it really is good conscience food for those who want allergy free and organic food.
- The Benedict – the dish was slightly over-covered with hollandaise, but overall the flavour was great.
- The Eggs – free-range. These were the star of the dish. The eggs for a bene were as they should be – orange yolk, delicious flavour and cooked to perfection.
- The Bacon – pokeno, yummy, yummy. Would have liked more bacon, however for the cost of the meal I simply cannot complain.
- The Spinach – was fine.
- The Hollandaise – homemade, and delicious. Slightly too much for my liking.
- The Muffins – were fine.
Would We Go Again?
Definietly would be back for food that satisfies the food conscience.
