Review: Store Espresso (Camperdown)

After a brief hiatus due to final exams (yay, I just finished my second undergraduate degree!), here’s my report from the last breakfast catch-up with my sister. Once again I managed to take this place for granted for the 2.5 years that I lived 1-2 minutes from there and only got to visit it now that I live 15 minutes further away. Yes, we’re talking walking distance. What a drama, I know.

Until recently I was under the impression that Store Espresso was more about the coffee and less about the food. Fortunately our visit proved me wrong.

Upon a closer inspection of the menu a few items did catch my eye. We ordered the Italian scrambled eggs with crispy pancetta, diced tomato, parsley & provolone (served without sourdough), which was more an omelette than scrambled eggs. Other than that, it was amazing! One of the best tasting breakfasts I’ve had lately. If cheese didn’t make me stuffy I would eat this every day.

The other dish was also good but less spectacular. It was field mushroom layered with sautéed spinach, roast tomato and pesto served with poached egg (again, no sourdough), that we ordered with an extra poached egg to make sharing easier. Nice flavour, especially the slightly sweet chunky pesto.

And yes, coffee was good. So was the water with lemon slices offered at the table. Yes, “the” table: they do the communal table thing, so be prepared if you are socially impaired (like me).

  1. Congratulations on finishing your degree! I smiled at your self-diagnosed social impairment. We can be socially impaired together. :-) Glad to know they have good coffee there, I look forward to trying it out. Too many times recently I keep getting bad coffee at places that I started to wonder if it is actually my tastebuds that are warped.
