Pavé Cafe is a cool little cafe located on The Parade. The stone walls give the place a rustic feel and it is unique in a sense that the dining area is outdoors like a courtyard but is also covered and well protected from the elements of mother nature.
My weak mocha was nice. It had a good balance of coffee and chocolate. The milk was nicely steamed and had good texture and a nice thin layer of froth on top.
Passionista slushie made with passionfruit, mango, banana and coconut water. I loved this fruit slushie. It was thick, icy and just super refreshing. Definitely unique compared to other cafes that just serve plain juice.
The weekender. Double smoked Barossa kransky, baked chilli egg, cheese and baked beans on toasted rye bread. This originally came with bacon but I swapped it for kransky instead. The eggs had runny golden egg yolks as soon as I cut into them just the way I like it. The beans were soft and kept their shape well. The kransky was lovely and smokey and the chilli sauce gave the dish an awesome spicy kick.
They had a small range of baked goods on display so naturally I had to try something.
Portuguese tart. The pastry was light, crispy and flaky. The custard was smooth, silky, rich and creamy with a golden caramelised top.
Pavé Cafe is a hidden gem along The Parade. The food tastes delicious and the servings are generous. Everything you want in a good cafe. There is also lots of street parking available and an abundance of shops around. Perfect for when you want a bit of brunch and shopping but don’t want to head into the CBD.
