Lazy Sunday mornings call for late breakfast at cool cafes. I hadn’t ventured to East Orange just yet so it was about time to visit Bills Beans. I already knew their coffee was great because I had sampled it at Factory Espresso. Now it was time to sample the food. They do sandwiches and other gluten-full things that are easy to serve and can’t be altered as per the warning in the menu but they also have some gluten-free options that looked just as great.
The tiny cafe was packed so we were willing to seat out in the cold but fortunately we were informed there was more seating inside.
We started with a long black (aka my usual) and an almond milk latte for Alvaro.
Long black ($3.90), almond milk latte ($4.40?)
We ordered the 2 frittatas available on the day, both gluten-free and served with salad, one with roasted vegetables and the other with salmon, potato & dill. Both were awesome, with the perfect texture (unlike many rubbery frittatas out there) and with great flavour.
Roasted vegetable frittata ($11)
Salmon, potato & dill frittata ($11)
We also ordered a slice of the orange, polenta & almond cake. By “we” I mean Alvaro, although I did eat a good chunk of the tasty moist treat, not without ordering an espresso to cut down the sweetness.
Orange, polenta & almond cake ($6.50)
