How was it?
We had originally planned to go to one of the SIFF barbeques, but I looked out my window at the pouring rain and we swiftly changed our plans. Miss LV, Miss Toronto and I, instead, headed towards a lovely cafe in Glebe called Clipper Cafe. It turns out that I was there on the same day as Ja from Beansprouts Cafe! Random!
It was quite busy inside, people were most likely taking refuge from the crazy weather outside. There was a very relaxed and cool vibe about the place. Everyone seemed very laid back and the cafe was outfitted in cute little ornaments and bottles, as well as two bicycles hanging prominently from the ceiling!
We ordered some drinks before deciding on what food to order. Miss LV said that the coffee was great, and I kind of regretted not ordering one, when I saw hers!
But then mine and Miss Toronto's juices arrived. I loved the bright and vibrant colours. I can't quite remember what was in mine, but I do remember orange and ginger , I do remember it tasting fabulous and I polished this off before our food arrived! Miss Toronto's watermelon juice was nice also, but not as sweet as the ones I'm used to having in Asia!
I used to hate porridge when I was little. I always thought of it as one of those foods that you had to eat when you were sick! But I have outgrown the dislike and now I can't get enough of it! There was definitely the distinct flavours of chai in the porridge which made it lovely, sweet and spicy. The stewed rhubarb and nuts were a great addition and were paired perfectly.
with Herb Toast $10.00
Baked Eggs with Homemade Napoli with Mushrooms, Spinach & Fetta
with Herb Toast $10.00
The baked eggs dish was a little bit more hearty and perfect on this cold and wet morning. The baked eggs were lovely and gooey and the sauce was rich and flavoursome.
Smoked Salmon Salad with Avocado, Fresh Ricotta and Capers with Boiled Egg $13.00
The smoked salmon salad was very colourful. The pink of the smoked salmon, with the pile of greens and a perfectly cooked boiled egg, was visually pleasing. And the tastebuds were just as happy! The smoked salmon gave the salad a lovely briney and salty taste. It was quite filling but it felt light and healthy.
A great addition to the many many cafes occupying Glebe Point Road. Picture your perfect cafe where you can relax and get ready for the day and enjoy some awesome food and you'll have Clipper Cafe. The service is a bit slow, but the food more than makes up for it and it won't break your budget.
