Gourmet Girl

On the corner of a small strip of shops near Laburnum Station, you will find Gourmet Girl. I love coming here because their coffee is always great and it has the best setting compared with other cafes in the area. I have been here for coffee a number of times but today we thought we would try their food. As the weather was lovely, we sat out the front under the trees. The seating inside is limited, so if the weather is bad, I would definitely suggest booking a table. No table service provided here but the staff are very friendly and are quick to clear tables which is very smart indeed. A lot of other cafes could learn the benefits of clearing their tables more often than they do... There is a breakfast and lunch menu to choose from, plus a daily special’s board that offers some alternative meals. The Canadian focaccia with fresh garden salad ($15.00) was tempting me as it was filled with smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, red onion, avocado, and mayo. But I felt like something sweet today so I went with the ‘The Village’ Mixed Berry Pancakes ($15.00). This was comprised of two huge, fluffy pancakes smothered in mixed berries, maple syrup and a scoop of ice-cream. Very yummy but I only just managed to finish it as it was massive. Definitely no room for a scone with jam and cream ($4.00). Oh well, there is always next time... My friend chose the Chicken Combo sandwich ($12.00) on light rye sourdough. This was a large sandwich containing chicken breast, avocado, tasty cheese, mayo, and lettuce. She confirmed that this was very tasty and it did look delicious. My latte ($3.80) was excellent as usual. They are also open on Friday and Saturday nights for tapas. Will definitely be back to try some more items from their menu.
