Boost! Cafe review
Today we tried Boost!
on Dominion Road. It is another small local cafe, again people who live or work nearby seem to pop in for a takeaway. It was quiet while we were there and the couches are comfortable.
Again the menu is short and straight forward. I had "Bacon and eggs" and Barbara had pancakes.Coffee: OK
The coffee was OK, Barbara seemed to really enjoy her Moccachino (choice of glass or mug) but my Long Black was neither as strong, nor as smooth, as last week's at Okra
I was offered hot water, but the coffee was already pretty wet, so I declined ;-)Food: Good value
The eggs (poached) were done well, though the eggs were not as fresh as they might have been so the shape was poor. [A really fresh egg will pull itself into a nice round shape when it hits the boiling water, so you can always tell!
] The bacon was nice thin enough to be crisp, but not too thin, smoked and tasty. Accompanied by a tangy tomato relish/sauce. BUT take off points for white toast, and no choice offered.
Barbara's pancakes were reportedly good, with a good variety of fruits.
The total bill, at about $26 was good value.

no prizes, but a competent and good value small cafe - and a big plus it was the only one open on Dominion Road at 8:30am!
