Not where you'd expect, in the Ellerslie main drag but over the motorway almost in the office parks of Penrose, Cafe Trends is easy to miss, who knows how many times I've driven past without spotting it? But to miss it would be a pity, the food offers a standard cafe menu with few surprises - except the price, which is not high - but the quality is good. Barbara chose perhaps the "most surprising" item a breakfast burritto with bacon, egg, potato and other goodies burritto wrapped and by all reports delicious. I had the mushrooms, lashings of creamy sauce (I am picky, I'd have preferred a higher mushroom to cream ratio ;) and delicious smoked bacon.
The coffee was good to very good
The food was very good
