King Arthur Cafe made it onto my hit list; boasting baked treats, good coffee and delicious food. When we were in New Farm it was the first thing that popped into my head.
All day breakfasts are all the rage at the moment. Although I was disappointed that when our waitress mentioned the specials most of them related to changes to the menu because they were out of stock. She also had difficulty remembering the salads of the day.
Firstly, we opted for the Mount Cotton Mushrooms $18.0 (pan frittata, sorrel, green chilli) which came topped with large chunks of feta.
Secondly, I opted for a small mix of two of the salads of the day $11.50. Roast Cauliflower, Broccoli, Parmesan and Quinoa and the Rocket, Isaraeli Cous Cous, Carrot and Saltana Salad. The salad was a very large portion for a small but I was very disappointed that their was no Broccoli to be seen in my meal! The Israeli Cous Cous Salad was my pic of the two!
My lunch date ordered a chai latte which arrived very quickly but unfortunately was weak and milky. I opted for the cold pressed green juice $6.50 (Kale, cucumber, ginger and apple) which was zesty and fresh.
Just off Arthur Terrace in New Farm, King Arthur is a quaint two story cafe. The downstairs level houses the entry, limited dining and the main kitchen and cafe area. The upstairs took us by surprise it had a lovely domed roof, communal dining setting as well as bench seating.
We were seated quickly and our food was reasonably fast. It was unfortunate that our waitress struggled with the menu. But overall we were happy with our experience.
The Verdict: I was very impressed with my experience from Arthur Cafe I cannot wait to come back for the Brekky Menu and try the coffee. Overall 7.5/10
