This is a cute little cafe very close to where we live now. I first read about it 2 years ago here so I guess the delay is within my normal range.
The cafe is small but they manage to make their own pickles and other preserves, and a number of tempting (but gluten-full) sweet treats.
My long black (Golden Cobra) was short and strong. Alvaro enjoyed a tea, served in a retro cup that reminded me of my aunties.
Dish number one was cauliflower, hazelnut, tarragon, mushroom, poached eggs, toast. The dish was pleasant but not “wow” IMO. It calls for a salty, meaty extra. Fortunately, the menu lists Rodriguez Bros. morcilla as one of the optional extras (along with chorizo and ham) for $5. It came with paper-thin slices of green apple, a perfect match. We chose the gluten-free toast option for this dish, a wonderful tapioca loaf that came with butter on the side. Best gluten-free bread we’ve had so far.

The braised free range pork, house-made apple kimchi, poached egg, peanuts, fried shallots, lime, toast was my favourite of the two dishes, with bolder flavours that appeal to my South American palate.

Service was exceptionally good and food presentation was outstanding. We paid $50 in total.
