This popular café is set on the corner of two beautiful tree lined streets and both it's outside and inside dining areas were pretty full when I arrived just before midday. Eatability has quite a mixed review of the service and food and today my service waiter was friendly and helpful. I'm not a coffee expert but my cappuccino was very smooth and creamy and had pretty much no bitterness. I tend to put sugar in my coffees but could have happily drunk this cappuccino without sugar.
I was intending to just try the coffee after already eating earlier at Sonoma but was very much tempted by the ricotta pancakes I spotted on the specials menu. When they arrived I was very impressed with the generous size, presentation and topping of mixed berries but they were actually just normal pancakes I think with some ricotta smeared on top rather than the ones made with ricotta I've heard so much about at Bills and what I tried at Hunter Valley Cooperage based on Bills recipe. The three pancake high dish was a challenge to get through alone and could easily be shared by 2 people. It also needed more honey, which to me tasted more like maple syrup, because all the pancakes underneath didn't have any on it. I noticed another customer next to my table was asking for more honey when eating theirs.
