I stumbled into Clipper Cafe one day with its cool bicycle wall hangings and relaxed vibe. It was no less busy than my usual Thai haunts in Newtown but once seated I felt like I could sit there all day sipping coffee and tapping away on my laptop (as some people were doing).
Berry Smoothie - $5.00
Today I was here with Sir D and we settled on ordering one savoury and one sweet item for lunch. While we waited for the food to arrive I ordered a berry smoothie which was pretty in pink and sufficiently sweet with honey.
Baked eggs with napoli, chorizo, spinach and fetta with herb toast - $12.00
It seemed like baked eggs was their specialty since they had several types of baked eggs on the menu. We chose the baked eggs with napoli sauce, chorizo, spinach and fetta with herb toast. The toast was buttered and crunchy and the perfect base for the chunky tomato sauce and the slices of spicy chorizo. The eggs were a little firmer than I prefer but the servings were large and I don't think I would have been able to finish this on my own!
Organic flour pancakes with strawberries, banana and ricotta with maple syrup - $12.00
Our sweet dish was the organic flour pancakes with strawberries, banana and ricotta which Queen Chu had recommended to me. These pancakes didn't disappoint - they were light and fluffy and perfect for soaking up the maple syrup. I was expecting the ricotta to be inside the pancakes but in fact it was a dollop of ricotta cheese on top of the stack which added a pleasant creaminess to the pancakes. And I think the fruit was just there to make me feel better about eating pancakes for lunch!
The atmosphere at the cafe was so chilled and I must have been enjoying my lunch too much because I realised I was going to be late. I ran back to uni but I was still late for my class - it was completely worth it for those pancakes though! Next time I'll have to make sure I have a longer break between classes so I can take my own sweet time :)
