I wasn’ t sure what to expect of new cafe, Kingsford Kitchen. Tucked away down Kingsford Smith Drive off Southbrook Road, it looks a lonely little building in the midst of empty land and half built stuff. And when we pitched up on Sunday morning it was empty.
Which is a shame, because it’s really a pretty nice place. The inside is llight, bright and modern and still manages to be comfortable. And there’s seating indoor and out on a little terrace area.
There’s plenty of cabinet food – sweet and savoury and a brunch menu that runs till 11.30am. I opted for coffee and friand – which was delicious – moist and flavoursome. My partner ordered poached eggs on a muffin with bacon and hollandaise sauce. It was well presented and tasty.
But small. Just one egg on one muffin with one slice of bacon. Some might not like that, but I actually think it’s a plus point. I like to finish my meal feeling satisfied not stuffed and this is perfect brunch/lunch time stuff that won’t leave you feeling full for the rest of the day. And the size is also reflected in the price – just $11 for this brunch dish.
Service was great, friendly and efficient. Coffees all arrived together and cooked dish didn’t take too long. Which sounds like a no brainer, but I’m often amazed by the number of places that can’t get that kind of basic stuff right.
I think this is a great brunch/lunch with a friend type place. If you pop in just for coffee I think you’ll struggle to avoid all those tempting snacks. And if you go with little kids, I think you’ll be in and out quite quick. It feels a little too neat to be kid friendly. Which is fine, there are plenty of other places with toy boxes and play areas if that’s what you’re after. Sometimes it’s nice to go somewhere grown up.
I’ll definitely be going back.
