Mrs S, Strikes Again
Who is Mrs S? We feel she is a charming, kindly individual who treats everyone as her favourites. This is evident because as soon as you step through the doors, you are enthusiastically welcomed with genuine smiles and heartfelt warmth. You are then offered a choice of seating, ushered to your table and handed a menu. The menus are bound in Golden Book covers, making one nostalgic for the carefree days of one’s childhood years.
The menu is filled with so many tempting choices, making it hard to decide what to choose. We enjoyed, Granny June’s cornbread with scrambled eggs, bacon, arugula and a jug o’ maple syrup. This proved to be every bit as delicious as it sounds. The two generously thick slices of lush, cornbread were bursting with fresh juicy corn kernels and were prefect for soaking up the rich, natural maple syrup. The sweetness was well balanced by the saltiness of the crisp bacon. We can also recommend the open porterhouse steak sandwich. It arrived, resplendent on toasted ciabatta. With mustard mayo, caramelised onion, sliced cheese, grilled bacon and fresh, vibrant green asparagus spears.
The coffee is too good to be true, thanks to the happy barista Matt who has honed his skills to create magnificent coffees on every occasion. Odes could be written to the rich, creamy flavor of the full-bodied macchiato. Imagine my surprise. I was delighted to read my name in the coffee foam and pleasantly surprised to find that Matt had even spelt it right.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, you have come to the right place as the counter is heaving with beautiful cakes, slices and muffins of every description. They are all house-baked and sit there prettily, adorned with edible flowers, tempting even the most stalwart amongst you. If you are too full after your delicious meal, make sure you get some cake to go, as you will surely regret it if you don’t. You will suffer a sleepless night, dreaming of the cakes you should have had!
The fit out is fun and fresh. The murals are eye-catching, making it a great venue to sit back and relax. Call in soon, your senses will thank you.
