30 Mar Whipped Bake Bar Cafe
While running some errands down at Semaphore I thought I would get some breakfast while I was in the area. Whipped Bake Bar Cafe is one of my old brunch spots that I often went to when I lived in the north western suburbs so I thought it would be good to revisit again.
It was pretty empty when I got there but I guess less people meant faster food and service.
I ordered my usual weak mocha but I’m sorry to say that I did not enjoy it at all. The coffee tasted burnt and very bitter mixed in with the milk. The milk wasn’t frothed enough and it just tasted like heated milk.
I also got a watermelon and apple juice which was sweet and refreshing.
It was still quite early in the morning for me so I didn’t want anything too heavy so I ordered the smashed avocado. It came with rocket, poached eggs and goats chèvre on sourdough with a haloumi cigar and balsamic reduction.
I was really interested to see what this haloumi cigar was as it’s not something I have ever heard of before. The eggs were nicely poached, soft with runny egg yolk on the inside just the way I like it. The haloumi was the real star of the dish for me. It was crispy and flaky on the outside, soft and slightly chewy on the inside. I actually didn’t like the avocado. It tasted fine but it was super cold so the difference in temperature to the rest of my warm dish made it a bit unpleasant in the mouth.
Nice little cafe if you live in the north western suburbs. They just need to improve on their coffee.
