Café Rondiné

The new Mooroolbark eatery, Café Rondiné, is located in what used to be the Sweet Welcome cafe. Unlike the former owners, the cafe is now open on weekends, which really makes much more sense... As most cafes are closed on Sunday in Mooroolbark, I thought I would see what the conveniently open Café Rondiné was like. The menu has definitely improved compared with the Sweet Welcome menu, with a smaller amount of choices available but more modern and affordable. You can also pre-order via SMS which is a very innovative idea. Free Wi-Fi is available too so you can check your emails while having a coffee. The menu comprises mainly of breakfast options and sandwiches with some other choices like pies, on display near the till. The Rondiné Big Breakfast ($13.00) with eggs, toast, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, tomato, and relish is great value if you are looking for a filling meal. If you are after something smaller, the Egg and Bacon Muffin is only $4.50! All the eggs here are free-range which of course is great to see. Today, I was tempted by the specials board and chose the Hash Brown Special ($9.00) with eggs, spinach, and toast. I was expecting frozen hash browns but instead I was pleasantly surprised to have two yummy home-made hash browns. These were accompanied by a big serve of sautéed spinach leaves, a nice piece of toast, and two perfectly cooked eggs. My friend went with the B.E.L.T. ($9.50). A fresh and tasty sandwich of bacon, egg, lettuce, and tomato was eagerly devoured and was apparently very yummy. Our lattes ($3.20) were pleasant with a nice, creamy texture. They offer a number of special deals such as a homemade muffin with coffee for just $5. Service was excellent especially considering that only one guy was working here today and he managed to serve customers, make coffee, and cook our meals. And they say that women are better at multi-tasking...
