Bianca: Weaving my way through Sydney’s cafes have now become one of my favourite past time. Early morning work starts mean my dinner excursions have mostly been left to the weekend but that’s okay because I’m ALL about the #brunchlife.
Unwritten Cafe is a cute little gem straddling Boronia Park & Hunter’s Hill, owner Georgie is a force! And all around lovely lady. This is the second incarnation of the cafe, formerly occupying the space next door for seven years before moving to its current home.
Coffees are a must first thing in the AM. Our Soy Cappucino’s $4.30 were well balanced and not overly milky.
If you’re after something a little more fruity, the Tropical or Watermelon Frappe $7.5 might be more up your alley. I preferred the cornucopia flavour of the berrylicious Tropical Frappe, literally summer in a cup.
And for pure unadulterated decadence, spring for the Peanut Butter & Nutella Thickshake $7.5, if there’s a better combination in the world… please tell me!
The food menu is pretty expansive with your typical cafe stalwarts. No pancakes to be found here, instead, the Homemade Waffles -w/ Nutella, banana, strawberries, homemade raspberry reduction and vanilla ice cream $18. The waffles were really the main point of difference here, not overly sweet with a slight crispiness. I enjoyed the sourness of the raspberry reduction and the hit of sweetness from the Nutella.
The Breakfast Burger -w/ a poached egg, maple bacon, homemade rosti and smashed avocado & siracha hollandaise $18 ticks all the boxes! The crispy maple bacon, the crispy rosti! I’d probably prefer a fried egg over poached just for the mess factor but no denying the flavours here.
And finally, the Cubano -w/ pulled pork, smoked ham, swiss cheese, pickles & dijon mayonnaise $18. So I’ve had a few variations of a Cubano across Sydney and whilst this was tasty and the pork tender, I just found it a little too ‘wet’ for my liking.
Definitely save room for some sweeties. The front counter is pretty impressive! With everything made in-house.
The Chocolate Brownie & Blondies were popular choices.
But I can never go past a good Carrot Cake. Light, airy & a perfect amount of cinnamon.
Worth the trek to Hunter’s Hill!
