Some friends and I decided to meet up for a lovely Sunday brunch. We had been to Urban pantry before (also for brunch) and thoroughly enjoyed their great menu and awesome coffee, so logically that’s where we wanted to go again.
Everyone else had the same idea too.
Coffee was really good the last time we came, so much so that everyone got seconds. It wasn’t great today which was a shame. My friend got a coffee so bad that she sent it back and the new one only came back mildy better. Timmy’s flat white was weak and fairly milky.
Free range eggs benedict with bacon and hollandaise sauce ($19.80) A delicious sauce with eggs poached to perfection but alas we found the bread really ‘tough’ and hard to chew.
Sour dough bread (no butter) with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms. More hard bread with simple sides.
Ricotta pancakes with bacon & maple ($17.60) This was perfect for me- sweetness of tasty pancakes with the saltiness of delicious bacon. Served nice and hot too.
Staff were really polite and attentive. They did come to our table several times with coffee orders that weren’t ours, but that is easily forgivable when they are so smiley and nice.
I really want to come back and try their dinner and I think that’s when I’ll make my Entertainment card worth while.
