On that board The chalkboard cafe, Waterloo

Posted on Updated on

Are you desperately on the lookout for good quality breakfast, lunch or even a quick coffee in the Sydney suburbs, but want to keep away from touristy spots, then head to The Chalkboard Cafe (197 Young St Waterloo, NSW 2017).

The cafe is beautifully decorated with wood and funky stainless steel chairs. Majority of the furniture have  price tags on them, as it appears the cafe was located at an art gallery showcase.

Smart innovative invention using chopped wood pieces as decoration.

Shiny silver metal stands that sparkle when the light shines right through it.

Candle holders, a very classical piece  that suits the cafe.

We enjoyed the professional, quick and friendly service. We were quite lucky to be served by the Front of the house Paula Gordon.

It was brunch hour and so we ordered the Chalkboard Benedict with Bacon ($17) which was indulging and scrumptious . It was a very clever idea to replace the usual muffin bread with sliced layers of potato cake. The texture melds incredibly well together to form a perfect dish. The hollandaise sauce added on top made it even more tantalizing.

It was chilly that day and soup always come in handy when our bodies have to endure blasting winds and freezing weather. So we ordered soup of the day -cauliflower, served with a thick slice of fresh sour dough bread and soft butter. We were super duper pleased we had ordered it. Although it had a very buttery aftertaste and could lead to a calorific spike, I still thought the soup was magnificent. Rich, smooth and creamy is what I’d describe this soup. In my opinion I think that’s how any soup should be, creamy. But hey! Everyone’s taste buds are different.  Would you  like more flavour in your bread? Perhaps dunk the sour dough in the soup and there you have it, a flavoursome tasty bread!

Couldn’t miss out on their signature blueberry and buttermilk pancakes ($16). It was a heavenly sweetish dish as it was approaching our table served with thick sticky syrup. Photos don’t  give it’s justice on how coma inducing it was!

Pancakes we meet again! A close up shot of the multi-layered, rich, buttery, mouth-watering and fruity pancake.

After brunch we walked upstairs and strolled around the art gallery showcase. Go check it out!

      This is just a small portion of the menu. I’m yet to try many more dishes they have installed for my tummy! 😀
